What is in Dragon 301, Pg. 58?

An article on various alchemical items.  The ones you would be interested in are in the "Poisons and Malefics" section.

was the poisonmaster prestige added to this handbook?

it allows you to apply metaposion effects (extend, empower, maximize, twin, quicken), gain posion secrets (change application method, contact to inhalant, anyone?), gain dr/-, become immune to all posions....

plus it is 100% official wotc material.

from the same source is a feat that grants immune to massive damage, and a psionic power that does 2d6 twice to the ability score of choice... among other goodies.

How come it's not listed in the 100% official wotc prestige class index? What source is it?

/edit: found it. But I assume it's not only me who will ask how this is official wotc material, at least my DM would ask, too. Got anything on that?

Poisonmaster isn't listed because I had never heard of athas.org before :P  I'll add the PrC to the list. I'm a little dubious about the Poisonmaster, since it kind of falls into the trap of 'All I can do is poisons' - I really wish it had a way to remove immunity to poisons with all of its heavy focus on them. But there's no denying that the class can certainly use poisons effectively :P

On another note, I'm starting a new character in a few days - this one is an elven rogue/wiz/unseen seer. It should be interesting to see how effectively I can use poisons on the character...sadly, the campaign is undead-heavy and the character isn't really built for melee combat, so I don't have any great expectations.

positive energy based poison fo undead?

while you are at it, there are official 3.x sites for planescape, spelljammer, birthright, mystara, and ravenloft too. very likely to have poisons. ^^ and thank you for excellent resources.

was that a poison specific list, or a prestige general list? if the latter, then there is a bunch of prestiges to add.

Thanks the welcome back, InnaBinder. I've been working 2 jobs these past few months (and before that it was the last month of grad school), so I've spent more time lurking than posting.

The prestige class list is poison-specific, though I made some exceptions for classes that get an animal companion with good poisons.

Sadly, the game I'll be in has banned fabricate and minor/major creation (Iron Kingdoms-specific rules), and since it's L15, the worthwhile poisons are probably out of my limited budget, though I picked up poison immunity so I can use any that the party comes across =)

I have a few hours' free time today, so I'll add some page numbers for poisons and add that Dragon article into the poisons section. If I'm feeling extra frisky, maybe I'll check Birthright.org for any poisons there
