A New Potion!

Postby Naomi » September 6th, 2017, 12:11:50 pm

Hello everyone, it's been a few months since I last had a moment to speak with all of you. I believe many of you are aware that earlier this year several ancient and rare bestiaries were badly damaged as a result of holiday celebrations gone somewhat awry. As Head Librarian, I am delighted to inform you the room where these books were stored has since been cleaned and restored, with additional anti shatter spells placed on the windows. To celebrate I would like to have a small contest to create new potions, with the resulting recipes and instructions becoming the first new texts stored in this room.

To enter this contest, please create a potion and send it to me via PM. You may post your entry in this thread if you wish, but I will only judge those I receive in PM. The potion may have any effect you wish. The ingredients must contain items gathered from the magical creatures that inhabit our lands as well as plants, minerals, and/or other related items, the amounts to be determined by you. The potion ingredients and brewing instructions should be written out much like a cooking recipe, with a small description of the intended effect as well as side effects from an overdose. Should you have any questions, please ask here in this thread. I will be checking back daily to answer questions as well as chat with you.

The contest is open until September 25 and the prizes will be awarded sometime that week. Oh yes, the prizes! I understand creating a new potion can be hard, thankless work and so with the help of Master Belmos I have obtained some creatures to award to particularly exceptional entries.



I hope to see and speak with many of you over the days to come.

Does it have to include Pixel Art? I can't do graphic art to save my life... but I do have an idea that's been brewing (pun intended but I apologize non-the-less) for a good few years.

You do not need to create any art for this contest. You can if you wish, of course, and if any one does I do hope they will post their creations here.

Do the ingredients have to already be ones that are available already in the game (ie: Ashen feather) or can we make up our own ingredients as long as they are probable to be located within the world?

Be creative! You may of course use ingredients that have already been discovered as well as ingredients of your own imagining.

You may choose to be very scientific or not, that is up to you. Either way, the potion, ingredients and effects should be clearly described.

I have already received a number of entries and I hope to see many more of you join in. Remember, you have just over a week left until the deadline!


I would also like to hold similar contests in the future, perhaps someone has a suggestion or two to share?
