Potion of Augmented Reality

Potion, very rare

This potion is distilled by the derro from ley-infused fungus growing in their caverns and powdered crystals of alien origin.

This dark orange potion bubbles and swirls on its own. When a derro drinks it, it has the following effects.

  • For 12 hours, the derro is under the effect of a true seeing spell.
  • For 1 hour, the derro is under the effect of the bless spell (no concentration required).
  • The derro gains 10 temporary hit points that last for 1 hour.
  • For 1 minute, the derro gains the effect of a haste spell (no concentration required).

When a human, elf, dwarf, halfling, or any other creature besides a derro drinks this potion, the effect is unreliable. Roll 1d8 to determine how the potion reacts with non-derro physiology.
