One of the more important aspects of poison to remember is how deadly it can be with multiple instances of application. For each successive instance in which a victim is poisoned the substance’s Toxicity is reapplied to the total and the effect is reapplied.

A poison’s damage is only healed once the body purges the substance. One point is recovered in each Attribute once a number of hours equal to the original Toxicity has passed.

Using Poison
Dexterity + Athletics (obvious) or Larceny (on the sly) =
Success: The character successfully administers the poison
Failure: The character fails to apply the poison correctly. The poison is wasted.
Dramatic Failure: The character injures themselves or comes into contact with the poison requiring them to make a save.

Treating a Poisoned Patient
Intelligence + Medicine – (Difficulty to Treat) =
Success: The poison’s Toxicity is lowered by an amount equal to the successes rolled.
Failure: The poison is not in any way neutralized.
Dramatic Failure: The poisoned target takes 1 lethal damage as you injure them attempting to remove the poison.

Resisting Poison (once per hour)
Stamina + Resolve – (Toxicity) =
Success: The poison’s effect is resisted. Lower the posion’s Toxicity by an amount equal to the successes rolled. When the poison’s Toxicity becomes 0 it is considered purged from the character’s system.
Failure: The character continues to suffer from the poison’s effect.
Dramatic Failure: The poison applies its effect twice.
