Drugs & Poisons - Blackroot
Injury [DC 15]
460gp (per dose)
A favorite poison of those who must travel through wild areas infested with shambling mounds and other aggressive plants, blackroot infects and kills plant life of all types. This thick, black oil spreads through the plant's body, killing tissue and causing wracking agony in sentient plants. All creatures of the plant type are vulnerable to blackroot, though it has no effect on other creatures. Normal plants, such as trees or bushes, die within 1d4 hours of exposure to blackroot, though it has no effect on other creatures. Normal plants, such as trees or bushes, die within 1d4 hours of exposure to blackroot. Woodsmen may coat iron spikes with blackroot before driving them into trees they wish to kill. Plants destroyed with blackroot have black streaks along their outer bodies and their normally solid, woody interior parts are reduced to a soft, spongy mush. Needless to say, most druids detest this poison and those who use it.
