A poison was a substance that damaged or affected the abilities of a creature, either instantly or over time. A poison could be administered by contact, inhalation, ingestion, or through a wound. The effects of poisons varied widely but some common effects include paralysis, sleep, loss of ability, injury, or death.
Poisoned creatures had a chance to avoid or resist the effects of a poison. The ability to use poison effectively was a skill that must be learned and a person using a poison had a small chance of poisoning him or herself.
A poisoned creature could be cured quickly either through an antidote, a magic potion, or by clerical or druidic magic. Some poisons could wear off after a period of time and had little or no lasting effect. Some creatures had natural resistance or immunity to poisons.
