This question already has an answer here:
I am due to run a game at a convention in the new year and want to pull out all the stops to make it memorable. One idea I have is to actually produce a potion for the player to drink once the character has found it. I have done this once before at my weekly game where I used an ornate balsamic vinegar bottle and papaya juice with purple food colouring and it worked fine, but I want to see if I wan take it to the next level.
So that was the background, here are my questions:
- Where can I find affordable bottles with a fantasy potion look to them?
- What substance would look and taste interesting in this situation?
- Is it just a bad idea to try get a player I haven't met before to drink an potion? Something tells me some people might be sceptical.
