Cha Drain[edit]

I like the item but it seems the Cha drain is an excessive way to handle addiction. It would make very smart (or wise) casters who are unable to do anything. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Firefox (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts.

Thats the risk the player takes. Addiction can be roleplayed just as it is in real life.   Hooper   talk    contribs    email   12:22, 14 January 2009 (MST)
So I have to spend 500 gold pieces for a permanent stat bump. That sounds good... right until you realize you have between six and thirty-six seconds before it starts potentially costing you a permanent Charisma point every 6 seconds. So a Wizard who treats Charisma as a dump stat could literally be reduced to a comatose state in less than a minute. Of course, if you spend 500 gold pieces for another fix every six seconds you'll be fine... except that you have to do this every six seconds for the rest of your life. No one who would want this drug - that is to say, people who make their adventuring career based on having a very high Intelligence or Wisdom score - would want this drug. No drug in D&D is worth the price (they're all basically for roleplay) but this is beyond costly and is downright idiotic. Also, is there any actual reason why the potion is more expensive?
