Potions are consumable, one-shot artifacts in Sorcery & Super Science!. They’re often the first things a sorcerer makes after discovering his power, but they are also quite capable of impressive results when crafted by a master. Any liquid is suitable for making potions and many people believe that special, secret ingredients and preparations are required, but potions are made just like any other artifact with one special difference: a spirit can be transferred from any object containing a spirit into a potion during the potion-creation process. For example, a sorcerer has a normal black pearl in which he has placed two spirits with hopes of eventually creating the artifact called a black pearl. Instead of finishing his project, the sorcerer could transfer one of those spirits into a potion.

Potions contain no Fortune. Drinking a potion is an attack action.

I'm going to use several of these, thanks! Potions are the only magic item I allow to be bought in our game, and I'm attracted to simpler items like some of these for that purpose. I'm looking forward to the mislabeling of a potion and the resulting soap bubbles for example.

I wonder what might happen if some seeds were eaten whole, shortly before imbibing the Potion of Bountiful Harvests? ;)
