Forbidden Fruit (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Wondrous Item, rare
The Forbidden Fruit were the creation of an evil druid who made it his lifes work to assimilate the entire universe into nature. It appears as a normal fruit, typically of the larger variety such as watermelons, gourds, and cantaloupes. But smaller and more misshapen fruits such as pears, bananas, and pineapples have been known to exist.
Irresistible Aroma. When a creature enters within 10ft of the fruit, they will smell the fruit's strong irresistible aroma and they must make a DC 12 Wisdom saving throw. On a success, they are immune to the fruits aroma but can still eat it if they choose. On a failure, the creature will feel an irresistible urge to consume the fruit. For the curse to take root, a creature must consume at least one of the fruits seeds.
You are What You Eat. Within 24 hours, the seed will grow into a vine which will bind itself to your insides and inject a chemical into your bloodstream which may cause the creature great discomfort. This will then begin the transformation. Over the next 1d6 + 1 days, the creature will turn into a fruit similar to the fruit of the seed they ingested. The creature's skin will toughen and take on the texture and appearance of the fruit, and they will suffer from rapid hair loss and the loss of their nails. The creature's torso will become round and swollen as their appendages will recede into their body. The creature's body will then begin to shrink and bend to the size of the fruit and will grow any additional parts of the fruit such as a stem. Once the transformation is complete, the creature loses all bodily control and their mind fades away. The creature is now a new instance of a Forbidden Fruit and has its magical properties.
Removing the Curse. During the first 24 hours of the curse, a remove curse spell may be cast on the creature to neutralize the seed. Afterward, it is normally digested and loses its magical properties. If the transformation has already begun, a greater restoration spell is needed to cure the creature. The creature will then return to normal 1d4 days later. If the transformation is complete and the fruit is still intact, a resurrection spell may be cast to immediately return them to their previous state.
