A single portion of acid neutralizer is enough to pernanently neutralize up to 10 cu ft of normal acid. Neutralized acid no longer emits noxious fumes. Immersion in neutralized acid only does 5d6 dam per rnd as opposed to 10d6. Magical acid will regain its potentcy after 3d6 rnds.

When the arrow or bolt hits, the vial breaks, spilling the acid, and causes +1d4 hit points of acid damage to the target. If the arrow or bolt misses, it is always destroyed since the vial breaks anyway, and the spilled acid consumes the arrow. An acidpoint arrow or bolt is less aerodynamic than a normal one, and a weapon firing one has half the normal range increment. The vial itself may be removed from the arrow or bolt, and thrown as a grenade-like weapon with a range increment of 5 feet. There is no splash
damage from the vial, arrow, or bolt.

Rolling on the ground provides the target a +2 bonus on the save. Leaping into a lake or magically extinguishing the flames automatically smothers the fire.
Alchemist’s Frost: A flask of alchemist’s frost is actually a double-chambered bottle of normally inert alchemical substances. The vial is thrown as a grenade-like weapon. When it hits a target, the double-vial is broken and the two substances mix in an alchemical reaction that produces intense cold, causing 2d4 hit points of cold damage to the target.

Poisonbane Unguent: This bluish-green coloured cream is made from various distilled and concentrated herbs known for their ability to counteract poisons. If it is smeared on poisoned wound, the character gets 2 saving throws vs. the poison’s secondary damage, instead of the usual one, and may choose the better result.
Poisonflesh Draught: This bizarre and bitter-tasting alchemical solution allows a character to render his own flesh poisonous to creatures that bite him. When this draught is created, it is mixed with an Injury or Ingested type of poison; it does not work with any other type of poison. A character who drinks this draught becomes poisonous. For 8 hours after consumption, he is immune to the poison with which the draught was created. In addition, his flesh contains that poison so anything that bites him or otherwise consumes his flesh or blood is exposed to and affected by that poison (if it fails its Fortitude saves). For example, if a fighter drinks a poisonflesh draught of blue whinnis poison, he becomes immune to blue whinnis for 8 hours. If during that time, he is bitten by a dire weasel, the weasel has effectively ingested a dose of blue whinnis poison and must make Fortitude saves to resist its effects. The character cannot use his own
bodily materials, such as blood, to envenom his own weapons, as the poison in his system degrades within a few minutes of leaving his body. The character cannot poison another creature by biting it.

Preservative Balm: A quantity of this rose-scented balm liberally applied to a dead body helps to preserve it. A Medium-sized creature requires one full jar.

Smokestick: This alchemically treated wooden stick instantly creates thick, opaque smoke when ignited. The smoke fills a 10- foot cube (treat the effect as a fog cloud spell, except that a moderate or stronger wind dissipates the smoke in 1 round). The stick is consumed after 1 round, and the smoke dissipates naturally.
Snappowder: One dose of this semi-colourless powder covers a 5 ft x 5 ft area. Any creature weighing more than 20 lbs. that walks (slithers, whatever) on it sets off these tiny harmless explosives with a snapping sound and a tiny flash of light. This effect lets you hear creatures sneaking up on you and see where a creature is moving even if it is invisible or concealed by normal darkness. Creatures standing perfectly still can’t be detected, but creatures in melee combat usually can. You can automatically locate the square where a moving creature is, and the sparking trail it leaves allows you an additional reroll of the miss % due to concealment. The
strewn powder can be detected with a DC 18 Spot or Search check. It can be swept up without setting it off.

Somnolence Draught: This pleasantly-scented liquid is quaffed by a character immediately before going to sleep. It allows her to get eight hours worth of sleep in a time span of only four hours of otherwise normal sleep. A wizard character still needs to get 8 hours of rest before she can prepare spells, but this does not need to be 8 hours of actual sleep. Somnolence draught has no effect on elves, who “trance” for four hours in place of sleep. A dose of somnolence draught affects only creatures that normally sleep for 8 hours a night.
Sonicpoint Arrow or Bolt: This is an arrow or crossbow bolt to which a little aerodynamic vial of a volatile alchemical substance has been attached near the head. When the arrow or bolt hits, the vial breaks, exposing the substance to air, to which it reacts explosively. This causes +1d4 hit points of sonic damage to the target. If the arrow or bolt misses, it is always destroyed since the vial breaks anyway, and the resulting sound burst shatters the arrow. A sonicpoint arrow or bolt is less aerodynamic than a normal one, and a weapon firing one has half the normal range increment. The vial itself may be removed from the arrow or bolt, and thrown as a grenade-like
weapon with a range increment of 5 feet. There is no splash damage from the vial, arrow, or bolt.
Spec: Weight: 3 lb. for 10 arrows or 1 lb. for 5 crossbow bolts.
Soupstone: Small smooth stone. A Soupstone can turn a total of 10 gallons of water into hot nourishing broth before going inert.

If tangled, take 1d2 damage per round unless totally still. No penalty except damage if it is ignored. To remove, make a Dex or Escapr Artist check vs. DC20, or a Str check vs DC25.
Tanglefoot Bag: When you throw a tanglefoot bag at a creature (as a ranged touch attack with a range increment of 10 feet), the bag comes apart and the goo bursts out, entangling the target and then becoming tough and resilient upon exposure to air. An entangled creature takes a –2 penalty on attack rolls and a –4 penalty to Dexterity and must make a DC 15 Reflex save or be glued to the floor, unable to move. Even on a successful save, it can move only at half speed. Huge or larger creatures are unaffected by a tanglefoot bag. A flying creature is not stuck to the floor, but it must make a DC 15 Reflex save or be unable to fly (assuming it uses its wings to fly) and fall to the ground. A tanglefoot bag does not function underwater.
A creature that is glued to the floor (or unable to fly) can break free by making a DC 17 Strength check or by dealing 15 points of damage to the goo with a slashing weapon. A creature trying to scrape goo off itself, or another creature assisting, does not need to make an attack roll; hitting the goo is automatic, after which the creature that hit makes a damage roll to see how much of the goo was scraped off. Once free, the creature can move (including flying) at half speed. A character capable of spellcasting who is bound by the goo must make a DC 15 Concentration check to cast a spell. The goo becomes brittle and fragile after 2d4 rounds, cracking apart and losing its effectiveness. An application of universal solvent to a stuck creature dissolves the alchemical goo immediately.
Thoughtfocus Incense: Used by scholars to increase concentration, a stick of thoughtfocus incense burns for 1 hour, creating an invisible scent cloud 15 feet in diameter. While breathing this incense, a character has the benefit of a +1 competence bonus to Knowledge checks. This bonus does not stack with other competence bonuses from any source.
Thunderstone: You can throw this stone as a ranged attack with a range increment of 20 feet. When it strikes a hard surface (or is struck hard), it creates a deafening bang that is treated as a sonic attack. Each creature within a 10-foot-radius spread must make a DC 15 Fortitude save or be deafened for 1 hour. A deafened creature, in addition to the obvious effects, takes a –4 penalty on initiative and has a 20% chance to miscast and lose any spell with a verbal component that it tries to cast.
Since you don’t need to hit a specific target, you can simply aim at a particular 5-foot square. Treat the target square as AC 5.
Tindertwig: The alchemical substance on the end of this small, wooden stick ignites when struck against a rough surface. Creating a flame with a tindertwig is much faster than creating a flame with flint and steel (or a magnifying glass) and tinder. Lighting a torch with a tindertwig is a standard action (rather than a full-round action), and lighting any other fire with one is at least a standard action.
Titan Gum: Fast setting glue. Bonds in one round and can support 5000 pounds. Str check vs DC20 to separate glued items.
Toxic Tooth: Made to look identical to its wearer’s actual teeth (including the addition of plaque, random filth, and gaping cavities if necessary), a toxic tooth can hold a single dose of a contact or inhaled poison. To activate a toxic tooth, the wearer must bite down hard enough to crack it, then spit or exhale the poison at an adjacent creature.Doing so requires a standard action to make a ranged touch attack, but does not provoke attacks of opportunity.If the attack hits, the target is exposed to the poison and must save normally.Activating a toxic tooth also exposes its wearer to the poison.
Trail Bar: This tough, 4-inch-long bar of vegetable matter provides the equivalent of one day’s worth of food.A creature that has consumed a bar (which takes about 10 minutes) receives all the nutritional and stomach-filling value of a full day’s food—if none of the flavor.However, consuming a second trail bar before 24 hours have passed sickens the creature for 1 hour.Rangers and bounty hunters carry trail bars only if going into the wilds for long periods of time, and even then only reluctantly.
Traveler’s Solace: Fiery, unpleasant liquid. Effects last for 1d4 hours. Only useful once per 8 hours. If used by someone who is Fatigued, the user no longer has any Str or Dex penalties. Once Traveler’s Solace wears off, the user must rest for 8 hours to become Rested. If used by someone who is Exhausted, the user is only at Str –4 & Dex -4. Once Traveler’s Solace wears off, the user must rest for 8 hours to become only Fatigued.
Trollbane: A sticky blue substance that when applied to a slashing or piercing weapon, causes the creature hit by it to be unable to regenerate the damage from that particular wound. Trollbane must be reapplied after each attack.
Truth Wine: A sweet, white wine. Any non-elven drinker of a glass of Trurh Wine must make a Will save vs. DC15 or they will be unable to lie for the next (10 - Con bonus) minutes.

The candle’s creator must have at least 1 rank in Knowledge (religion).
Vapors of Sleep: A quickly evaporating liquid. Grenade-like weapon with a range increment of 10’ -or- it can be soaked into cloth. If a cloth is soaked with Vapors of Sleep and held over a target’s mouth & nose (i.e., a successful grapple), the target must make a Fortitude save vs. DC 13 or sleep for 1d4 hours. If thrown, the target of a direct hit must make a Fortitude save vs. DC 13 or be at a –2 penalty on all action for 1d4 rounds.
Verminbane Incense: Used to repel vermin of all kinds, verminbane incense burns for 1 hour, making a light cloud of a 15-foot diameter. The cloud is too light to provide cover in combat. Its scent makes vermin feel ill. Vermin must make a Fortitude save DC 15 to enter the cloud. If vermin are attacked from within the cloud, they can make another save to ignore the scent in order to attack back. Once a save is made, the vermin is immune to the effects of verminbane for 24 hours. Verminbane incense uses the same scent as verminbane salve. Creatures
that are vermin-like in nature, but not of the vermin creature type find the scent irritatingly pungent, but it has no game effect upon them.
Verminbane Salve: This minty cream is used by spreading it over one’s body. Its scent makes vermin feel ill. The scent stays with you until the salve wears off, in 4 hours, or until it is washed off. Complete immersion will wash the salve off immediately. Vermin must make a Fortitude save DC 15 to come within 5 feet of the wearer. If vermin are attacked by the wearer, they can make another save to ignore the verminbane and attack back. Once a save is made, the vermin is immune to the effects of verminbane for 24 hours. Verminbane salve uses the same scent as verminbane incense.
Alchemy or Profession (herbalist) check DC 16 to create. Market Price: 5 gp. Weight: 2 lb. per jar.
Vine Oil: This fishy smelling oil when spread over the body numbs the body to pain for an hour. This allows the user to fight below 0 hit points all the way until they reach -5 hit points. Vine oil however robs the user of the ability to stabilize below 0 hit points naturally on their own.
Vitality Draught: One dose of this sweet refreshing solution relieves fatigue effects (as described on page 278 of the Player’s Handbook) from any source except ones resulting from non-instantaneous magical or supernatural effects. The draught does not affect a character’s need for sleep.
Warmsuit: This cold weather outfit that keeps you warm in almost any environmental circumstances. It is made of special heat-retaining materials so that even if you get immersed in icy water it keeps you as warm as if you were dry. It does not retain water and completely dries itself out within one hour, even during the coldest winter nights. In addition, weighs only half as much as furs.
Weatherstone: A stone treated with a special alchemical substance, its changes in colour can be used to predict natural weather within 24 hours, with 90% accuracy. When a character views the weatherstone, the Dungeon Master secretly rolls percentile dice.
