Potions and Poisons

Firemilk | a medical ointment, often used to clean a wound. It is poured directly onto open wounds and burns on contact. In Westeros boiling wine is used instead if Firemilk is unavailable.

Manticore Venom | the poison of the manticore. It is deadly and kills the instant it reaches the heart, though it can be thickened to delay the effect.

Milk of the Poppy | The Milk of poppy is a medical drink, an opiate made by Maesters from the Poppy flower and white in color thus its name “milk of the poppy”. The Milk is used as a pain killer or anesthetic in Westeros. Normally given to those mortally wounded or in great pain. It has a quick effect of causing sleep, even for people in great pain. It is highly addictive.

Moon Tea | a type of herbal tea that is used in the Seven Kingdoms as well as beyond the Wall to prevent or abort pregnancies. It is made generally by maesters and wise women out of the flower tansy, mint, wormwood, a spoon of honey, and a drop of pennyroyal.

Myrish Fire | a medical ointment, that originated in the free city of Myr. It is often used to clean a wound and burns on contact. Myrish fire wines are drunk to help with digestion.

Shade of the Evening | a thick, blue wine, peculiar to the warlocks of Qarth. It is made from the inky blue leaves that grow on the black-barked trees found around the House of the Undying. It is deep blue and viscous, flowing like honey. It has an unappetising smell and initial taste, having been compared to ink, spoiled meat, and rotten flesh, but upon swallowing tastes like all things its imbiber has ever tasted, and more. It is used heavily by the warlocks of Qarth, whose lips have been turned blue by its extended use. The Undying Ones have drank so much of it not only their lips have turned blue, but their entire bodies as well. It is mildly hallucinogenic.

Sweetsleep | a drug that gives the gift of painless death. In small doses it can be used to moderate fits. Three doses of sweetsleep will cause the victim to slip into a sleep that they will never wake from. It is very sweet and best used in sweet foods, such as cakes, pies and honeyed wines.

Tears of Lys | The tears of Lys is a rare and expensive poison dissolved into liquids. It is clear, sweet as water and leaves no trace. The effects of the poison cause a sickness in the bowels and belly, eating away at them. It is created by the alchemists from Lys.

The Strangler | a rare poison which makes the victim unable to breathe. The poison is made from plants that are only found on islands in the Jade Sea. The leaves of the plant are picked and aged, then soaked in a wash of limes, sugar water and rare spices from the Summer Islands. The leaves are then discarded, but the liquid is kept and thickened with ash and allowed to crystallize. It turns a deep purple color.

Vinsonge | a medical drink. Made by Maesters it is used as a painkiller

Widow’s Tears | a poison named so for its color. It shuts down the bladder and bowels until the person dies from the body’s own poisons.

Wildfire | A highly volatile liquid that bursts into flame upon contact with the air. Once wildfire takes fire, the substance will burn until it is no more. It will seep into most materials so that they take fire as well. Wildfire will burn even when floating on water, it is typically commissioned for use as a weapon of war, though alchemists will sometimes use wildfire torches as a display of power. It grows stronger and more volatile over time.

Wine of Courage | a mixture of nightshade, bloodfly larva, black lotus root and many secret things. It is created by the Astapori and given to the Unsullied at every meal from the day they are cut. It is a numbing agent that makes the taker feel less and less with every consumption.
