Potion of Yiuf


If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

Potion of Yiuf

Inspired by thread about modifying potion of brilliance.
We need more potions which are situational i.e. they provide significant advantage AND significant disadvantage.
Potion of Yiuf halves your current HP but lets you choose one effect out of two (or maybe three?). The effects to choose from are taken randomly out of the list:
1) infinite MR
2) rTorment + rPois
3) might + agility + brilliance
4) haste + invisibility
5) all MP are restored
6) evocations skill is set to 27
7) weapon gets cleaving and you get HP on kills like with max piety for Makhleb
etc.

All effects are temporary of course, duration is randomized (also maybe the more HP you lose the longer the duration is?).
The trick is when to use the potion (at full HP it will make you lose much HP, at low HP it may be too late) and what to choose. Effects can be very powerful because the potion is very rare, the drawback of losing HP is very serious and the effect is somewhat random.
Underestimated: cleaving, Deep Elf, Formicid, Vehumet, EV

I approve of this post as long as one of the effects is generation of lightly fried fish supper

Re: Potion of Yiuf

Seems more appropriate as a God ability. Maybe a 4th deck for Nem? or an active Xom ability?

Re: Potion of Yiuf

Is this CYC or GDD?

Yiuf's father definitely smelt of elderberries.
