Description

This poultice is brewed from thick, sticky pine sap, rubbery pulp, and thick, gluey botanical gels. The holder activates the poultice by mixing it with a small blob of refined pine tar. The poultice creates a sticky ball of irritant tar that the holder can hurl at their enemies as a ranged touch attack, following all the rules of a ray. If the tar ball strikes, it deals (Circle 5 damage): 1d6+1 points of damage per character level (max 15d6+15 at character level 15) points of Acid (energy, common) damage + your Strength modifier, and the corrosive, sticky tar clings to the target inflicting the Slowed condition until the start of your next turn.
