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?

athas.org is the official 3.x dark sun site as per the licensing agreement with wotc. not only is material they produce considered 100% official by wotc, they are mandated to continue producing content as part of the license.

the reason it is not listed in the wotc index is because wotc did not write it themselves. however, due to the license, it is 100% official, nonetheless.


here is the basic text of the license agreement:
[spoiler]Official Homepage Requirements

Wizards of the Coast values its intellectual property a great deal, and it also values its customers who make purchase decisions based on their love of the IP. As sales dwindle on certain worlds that we create, we make the decision to no longer produce printed materials for these worlds. As Wizards of the Coast desires to keep previous customers happy with the investment they have made with our products, we allow select websites to take over the duties of providing new materials for retired intellectual properties.

In order to be considered an official website, the site must:

    Portray the intellectual property in a manner consistent with its positioning. This information can be found in the Brand Positioning documents. In lieu of these documents, work with the Brand Manager of D&D Worlds on an approved look.
    Retain the iconic heroes, locations, magical items, and artifacts. Official sites are not allowed to kill off major PCs, destroy well-known artifacts, and similar activities.
    Official sites must have links back to the Wizards of the Coast website that tie to:
        Message Boards
        Chat Rooms
        Mailing Lists
        Online Catalog
        Online Store
        Campaign Worlds
        Dragon Magazine
        Dungeon Adventures
        Player Registry
        Books
    Official sites must not create their own community sections that duplicate those services and features offered by the Wizards of the Coast website.
    Provide new content for fans within the guidelines in sections A and B. While there is a great deal of latitude granted in this regard, official websites should remain in close contact with the Brand Manager of D&D Worlds (oracle@wizards.com).
    Keep Wizards of the Coast related materials separate from other non-game sections of the website. This means we don’t want to see other business ventures mixed in with our intellectual property, such as pornographic offerings, get-rich-quick schemes, etc.
    Conduct its activities in a professional and businesslike manner. This means that all actions on the part of visitors to the website should conform to generally accepted business standards. Sites should never sell visitor information records to other firms for the purpose of marketing, for instance.
    Refer players to the Other Worlds section of the Wizards of the Coast page instead of their own URL. While many fans will bookmark your own page anyway, it’s important that fans receive the other information presented at the Other Worlds section.
    Make the material available for free. You’re not allowed to charge for access to official products.

We encourage fan sites to begin making updates to their content to bring it in-line with 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons as soon as possible. We will begin phasing out web pages that do not offer 3rd Edition Dungeons & Dragons content soon after the launch of the new game system in August 2000.

In exchange for providing all of the official new material for an intellectual property, Wizards of the Coast agrees to:

    Provide prizes and other support materials at a level established by the D&D Worlds Brand Manager.
    Establish a direct link from the Wizards of the Coast web page to the official fan site.
    Have only a single source for all official content, that being your site. Other sites that wish to be listed as part of the IP will be directed to the official website.

This agreement will change as business necessities force us to alter the manner in which we do business. Should the intellectual property currently being supported by the official website be brought back into print, the official status of the web site will be removed and Wizards of the Coast will begin creating new content to support the relaunch of the game (or work with the current official site to migrate content over).

Content created on the official website is considered to be derivative work (as it is based on the intellectual property owned by Wizards of the Coast). This means that fan-created add-ons (such as new net books, adventures, etc.) are jointly owned by both Wizards of the Coast and the creator; neither can do anything outside the official website without the permission of the other.

Good Gaming!

Jim Butler, Brand Manager D&D Worlds Wizards of the Coast, Inc. [/spoiler]

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
