Potion of Disguise

Potion of Disguise Item 5+

Uncommon Consumable Magical Polymorph Potion Transmutation

Usage held in 1 hand; Bulk L

Activate [one-action] Interact Upon imbibing this potion, you take on the appearance of a specific type of creature for 2d12 hours. The type of creature is determined when the potion is created. For example, you might have a potion of elf disguise or potion of frog disguise. Drinking the potion doesn’t impart the knowledge of how long the effect lasts; the GM rolls the duration in secret.

The disguise doesn’t change your traits or statistics, nor does it give you any of the special abilities of the creature you’re imitating. It might affect what items you can hold or wear (for example, your new form might lack opposable thumbs). The potion shrinks you down to a minimum of size Small, or maintains your size if the creature is your size or larger. For example, if you are Medium and drink a potion of fire giant disguise, you’ll take on the appearance of a fire giant but remain Medium. The creature has to be of a specific kind, such as “leopard” or “lion” rather than just “cat,” or “fire giant” or “ogre” rather than just “giant,” but the potion can’t cause you to mimic a specific individual creature.

The effects of this potion use the same rules as the Impersonate activity of Deception. Onlookers always assume you’re the chosen type of creature unless they’re actively Seeking. You gain a +4 status bonus to your Deception DC against such Perception checks and add your level even if untrained.

Type lesser; Level 5; Price 30 gp; Crafting Requirements Initial raw materials must include a bit of blood, hair, or flesh of the creature the potion will allow the drinker to imitate.

Type moderate; Level 8; Price 100 gp; Crafting Requirements Initial raw materials must include a bit of blood, hair, or flesh of the creature the potion will allow the drinker to imitate.

The potion can increase your size if the creature is larger than you, to a maximum of Large, and it can shrink you to a creature of size Tiny. This doesn’t change any of your statistics, with the exception of reducing your reach to 0 feet as a Tiny creature.

Type greater; Level 11; Price 300 gp

While drinking a greater potion of disguise, if you picture the specific form you want to transform into, the potion will change you into that form. You can attempt to Impersonate a specific individual, though you still need to roll Deception.
