Name Potion of Strong poison
Icon Potion of strong poison.png
A terribly venomous potion.

Quaffing a potion of strong poison poisons you for 3 to 15 (more) levels (with a strong probability for 9). Poison levels over 5 are very nasty, and this potion can put you anywhere from yellow poison status to pink and even to red (where it can do 100+ damage before running its course).

It is not entirely useless, however. When thrown with the Evaporate spell, the potion will create a 3x3 poison gas cloud that lasts a few turns, very useful for softening up groups of enemies. Also, characters with rPois may drink it for a small amount of nutrition.

"That liquid tasted extremely nasty..."
"You feel quite nauseous." (with poison resistance)
