Obeah Level Four Variant

Salubri skilled in Detox can remove poison and other harmful material from a patient's body. The subject has to drink a point of the caster's blood (which is used to burn out the poison). Depending on the severity of the infection, it may take more time to flush it out. Alcohol is trivial to remove compared to hepatitis.


The character must donate one Blood Point (for every extra point given, the difficulty on the roll is reduced by one, minimum difficulty is 5). Then an extended Intelligence + Medicine roll is made, difficulty depends on the nature of the poison/infection.


Foreign Intrusion




Other drugs, flu, cold


Moderate poison, moderate viral infections


Potent poison, severe viral infections


Lethal poison, life-threatening infections

The character must roll twice the difficulty number in successes to completely remove the foreign influence. For instance, AIDS is a life-threatening infection, difficulty 9 to detox. The healer must roll 18 successes to entirely remove it. If Detox is interrupted before it's finished, poison may be partially diluted, and infections may be slowed (at the Storyteller's discretion). During the Detox process, Willpower points may be spent (maximum of one a turn). Each point spent equals five automatic successes.
