Poisons exist in abundance in fantasy worlds, their deadly touch waiting within ancient traps, slathered upon readied weapons, or pooling within a fanged and monstrous maw. Some poisons are magical creations, concocted by dark powers in secret laboratories. Other toxins are naturally occurring on many worlds across the planes. Still other venoms drip from the fangs and scales of fearsome beasts.
Pale Designs: A Poisoner’s Handbook presents a comprehensive collection of poisons (from numerous Open Content products, as well as new creations) for use by both players and Game Masters. New rules for handling poisons in a campaign are presented, along with additional options to allow heroes safer access to poisons. There are also new prestige classes, equipment, and magic items for assassins and others interested in poison use.
