Lotus Fruit

Wondrous item, rare

On an island populated by creatures known as the Lotophagi, or lotus-eaters, a strange fruit grows. When imbibed, the lotus fruit causes a sense of pleasant calmness which over time overtakes the mind of the eater and affects their memory. This temptation was one of the trials of the hero Odysseus. If eaten, the lotus fruit causes a full-body sense of calm and relaxation. This is a magically addicting substance. Make a DC 17 Charisma saving throw. On a failure, your only desire is to remain by a lotus tree and eat the fruit. You may reroll this saving throw after every long rest. If you fail this saving throw three times, you begin to lose your memories, starting with the most recent.
