Guide to Herbs for RPGs


3rd Edition
By Shaun Hately
--==(AMBULANT IN FABULAM)==--

Editor's Note: A prudent DM should decide beforehand which of these herbs exist in his campaign world. A select few herbs in this encyclopedia have decidedly magical properties (restoring life, regenerating, etc.) Some of these simply don't exist in my campaign world, for I feel that they would upset the balance and lessen the importance of magical healing. Ultimately, it is the DM's call.

This is a guide for game purposes only. DO NOT under any circumstances, use any of the herbs contained in this guide for any real life purpose.

This guide is 1996, Shaun Hately, except where copyright is already owned by someone else.

 How to use this guide:  This guide was written in order to allow a more detailed method of using the Herbalism Non Weapon Proficiency than that provided in the PHB.

The description of each herb contains the following information:

  • NAME: This is what the herb is called.
  • Available: This is the time of year when the herb is available, and the percentage chance for a person who searches for the herb for one day finding it.
  • Locale: This describes the region in which the herb can be found.
  • Preparation: This describes how long a herb needs to be prepared before it can be used.
  • Cost: The cost before the / is the cost of the herb in raw form. The cost after the / is the cost of buying the herb ready to use.
  • Uses: The number of uses indicates how much of the herb can be found at any one time.
  • Ability Check: The ability check is the value that must be rolled under on a d20 for the use of the herb to be successful. If the ability check is listed as `?' it means that the herb may or may not have the powers attributed to it. If the ability check is listed as '-' then no ability check is needed when using this herb. The DM should decide what effect these herbs have, if any.
  • Description: This section describes what the herb can do.

 The DM who uses or allows this guide in their games should examine it carefully before use, and remove or modify any herbs that they wish. This is particularly true for those herbs that have quite major powers. It will be noted that very few poisons are listed in this guide. This is for two reasons.

  1.  I believe that a Herbalist should not use their art for nefarious purposes. 
  2.  I believe that allowing players access to too many poisons can severely effect game balance.

Any DM who wishes to have detailed poisons in their games is referred to the "Netbook: Poisons of the Realm" which I find to be excellent for the purpose.

 It should also be noted that I have tried not to include herbs that could be classed as "Drugs" with the connotation of illicit use. This is because I do not wish to be seen to be supporting illicit drug use. Having said that, for anyone who wishes to use addiction in their games I refer them to "The AD&D Guide to Drugs" by Desmond Reid. This is an excellent guide to use drugs in AD&D and includes information on addiction and its effects. The drugs contained within it could be converted to my system fairly easily.

 Once again, this is a guide for game purposes only. Do not under Any circumstances, use any of the herbs contained in this guide For any real life purpose.

 Shaun Hately, 6th March, 1996
