Shellfish Toxin (Ingested)

Ingested [DC 18]

650gp (per dose)

-3d4 Str in 30 min.
Secondary Damage:
-1d4 Str
Craft DC:

Description:
This poison is one of the few that can kill its victim within seconds. Only tiny amounts are required for a lethal dose, and the poison can be smeared on a blade or even a pin or needle for an attack. It can also be delivered in a lethal dose in food, though this method is slower and less reliable.

Shellfish toxin is derived from mussels or clams harvested during a period of plankton activity, one of the "red tides" that occur in subtropical waters during the summer months, peaking in July. The plankton generates the poison, and the shellfish filters the plankton from the water when it feeds, absorbing and concentrating the toxin within its body.
