Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: It's not clear what the duration of the bird transformation is: is it the duration of the poisoned condition (1 hour)? It seems very likely that the target would have passed a saving throw by then (since it's 600 saving throws). Furthermore the stages of the transformation look like they would have mechanical effects (bones painfully contorting and breaking?) but none are described.

Aviary Death[edit]

Price per dose: 1,245 gp
Type: Ingested

Aviary death is poison originally created by a famous gnomish bird lover. This poison is a clear liquid that could be disguised as water. A creature that ingests this poison must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or take 1d8 poison damage and be poisoned for 1 hour on a failed save. On a successful saving throw, the creature takes half as much damage and isn't poisoned. A poisoned creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns. While the creature is poisoned in this way, it begins to transform into a bird. First comes the growth of feathers all across the body, starting on the arms. After the feather growth, the creature's bones painfully contort and break to give the shape of a bird. Then they turn into a bird completely. The bird then lives for 1d12 minutes. They then die finally. If the poison ends before the transformation is complete, the creature instantly returns to its normal state. Birds and other avian creatures are immune to this poison.
