A simple, almost clear potion with a misty swirl within it. Pungeant smelling and extremely poisonous to drink. Its purpose isn’t to drink, however, but to call upon aid.

Any practitioner of the darker arts knows that creating aid in the form of undead servants is no simple feat. First you must extract a corpse, then wrap magical enchantments about it, causing it not only to become animated, but also to remain subservient to YOU and not someone else, which means ideally, a segment of your own life force should be placed in the spell.

The founder of Melkesjokolyde was, in fact, a necromancer name Melkesdyle. After oh-so-many years of watching his minions bieng destroyed by foolhardy adventurers, out to seek a name for themselves, he grew tired of seeing his sacrifice of life going to such waste. And so he studied, and eventually divised a way which he can conserve the effort, and even make it MORE useful! At the death of an undead creature, the enchantments used to animate its corpse and dictate its master are usually dispersed to the world, but Meklesdyle found that, by casting the proper calling enchantment within a few minutes of the creatures death, he could bring back that energy, as an almost ectoplasmic goo. This goo could be mixed with water, and when sprinkled on a corpse, or even decomposed skeleton, the spell will take hold once more, bringing that skeleton back. Eventually, Melkesdyle found that he could negate the ‘master’ section of the potion, meaning any fledgling necromancer could cast a simple control spell into the potion, meaning any creature ressurected by that potion would belong to whoever cast the master spell on the potion.

Melkesdyle changed his profession from terrorising small towns, to selling these potions to necromancers too weak to create undead from scratch.

Magical Properties:

The potion known as Melkesjokolyde can be bought in many ‘underground’ stores or blackmarkets. A necromancer who has one of these potions is able to cast an enslaving/controlling spell onto the milky substance, causing it to turn a brown, milky texture. If this potion is sprinkled on a single corpse, it will raise that corpse for the duration of one day. The potion will sink into the ground if sprinkled on the ground, and will attatch onto any corpse that might be down there, be it animal or human. The potion can be used on multiple corpses, too. A single potion can bring up 10 corpses for 1 hour, or 30 for 10 minutes.

This potion can, for example, be thrown over a patch of land where there once was a great battle. This will basically give an instant small army for a few minutes - long enough to slay whatever is troubling you :)

Drinking the potion is extremely poisonous, and you WILL die if you do so, and be turned into an undead zombie for the duration of one day, wherein you will still have control over your body since the controlling spell was yours.

The potion has a taste remeniscent of chocolate milk :)

20:48:01 Michael_Jotne_Slayer Melkesjokolade= A norwegian Milk chocolate,..... Nøtter=Nuts

20:48:07 Michael_Jotne_Slayer Want some?

20:48:28 Shadoweagle Melkesjokolade... what an awesome name

20:48:59 Ria_Hawk Cool! *pounces and gobbles it all up*

20:49:38 Michael_Jotne_Slayer Why`? What is awesome about it? Does it sound like a fantasy name for a legendary dragon to you?

20:50:09 Michael_Jotne_Slayer Not meant sarcastic, just wondering...

20:51:28 Shadoweagle It just sounds like such an overly signifigant name, for milk chocolate

20:51:56 Shadoweagle It sounds like some chemical which, when poured on soil, will make evil minions arise from it!

20:51:58 Shadoweagle er...

20:52:03 Shadoweagle or something like that

What can I say?
Funny what an innocent chat may produce when sick/creative minds are involved in the chat...
A question though, can a necromancer that is too weak too create his own living dead be called a necromacer?
August 24, 2004, 22:24
In training, Michael :D

Someone who had just started learning the dark arts can use this until he is powerful enough to call upon his own undead ^^

Oh, and er, the sick:Creative ratio is about 7:5

It can be a hard life for a fledgling servant of evil, with all of those goody-goody heros running about, all hot a bothered to find a villian to smash up.

I think this would also be a cool potion to use as an assassination poison. The milk chocolate flavor is a really nice touch.

Ummm! Tasty! In German, it'd be Milchschokolade. I sure did not know swetts could be used to raise the dead... i just thought they could spoil your teeth and make you fat :D

Obviously, you have never been around depressed and/or PMSing women much.

Tell me... the S.O. of a friend of mine will assault any chocolate she sees with a flying leap, and does not break off squares like normal people do ... she BITES the chocolate off, and STUFFS her face with it. 200g in one session is NOT unusual.

I have problems.
Halow's eve: Crazy twisted Necromancer solidifies Melkesjokolyde and gives it to children. Town overrun with toddler zombies. (S)he then reanimate all the corpses (both the children and their newly slaughtered parents,) and sends them forth to bring him/her new bodies. come next year, (s)he hides his/her minions and starts on another town, repeats this until a significant army is built up, then conquers the world, and posiibly even the multiverse...
July 28, 2005, 14:48
It certainly sounds like problems.

As for the army, note the effect's short duration. As for the children, much depends on how quickly the "chocolate" proves lethal... anyway it would be hard to gather a sufficient number of children without becoming too suspicious.

Also, think of the amount of the stuff needed... there have to be many freshly deceased undead, with the spell cast quickly on them, to create the base of this item.

Conquering the world ain't that easy. If it were so, I would be already your only lord and master... or some other Citadelian. :)

But certainly, it is a gruesome thought, worthy of an evil Necromancer.
July 28, 2005, 17:43
The potion itself would yes have a short duration, but if (s)he is powerful enough to consider world domination (s)he should be able to cast a few pretty powerful spells...

Minor point Roack - just because someone is thinking of world domination, doesn't mean he/she is actually powerful enough to be able to do it - more likely he/she is simply deranged (now there's a scenario waiting to happen if ever I saw one)

Now to the Melkesjokolade - chocolate flavoured undead creation potion - what a beautifully sick idea

Considerable difficulty in making it though - balances it out quite nicely - (novice dark mage say "pity about that")

Neat idea - 4/5

BTW Shadoweagle - are you sure the Sick:Creative ratio is that low â I'd have put it at 2:1 at the very least
July 31, 2005, 5:19
Sorry, should have said Reallistically consider world domination.

You know... I missed that reading it before. I think it became more macabe and horrific because it tastes like something so "common".

Dubious Instructions

Found written on a torn single page…

“Lay thee patiently and still upon the ground, contemplating the Leper Star in the firmament, 'neath a crescent moon, ‘midst the graves of a boneyard 'til the G’na-Shennu come crawling up from the foetid earth. Fear them not. Let them rage about thee, casting ghoul-dust from their chalky talons and scalps,'til they calm, and so begin to whisper their secrets. Then shall they solemnly withdraw into the earth once more, in peace."
