Potion of Visions

Potion, common

To most imbibers, this potion is simply a hallucinatory drug that gives pleasant dreamlike visions for a time.

Immediately upon drinking the potion, the imbiber falls into a trancelike state for one minute. During this trance, the imbiber experiences strange visions and sees distant places and unknown futures. If the imbiber is an elf, these visions carry prophetic power, and the elf can guide them to try to glean limited knowledge about the near future (similar to the results of the augury spell, but up to one day into the future). After awakening from the trance, the imbiber gains a level of exhaustion.

Time spent in a vision trance does not match to the passage of real time. A drinker in the throes of visions might seem to experience hours or even days of time, only to snap awake a mere minute after first taking the potion. To portray such an experience, the GM might choose to run an “adventure” in the dream-state, with other players participating as dreamlike versions of their characters (or as other people entirely).
