What’s in that Container? part 3 Magical Substances

These are mostly in potion form but sometimes powdered. Pretty much this can be used as potion treasure tables but has some unpleasant ones also. I prefer most potions being a few ounces but some might be a quart or even a gallon.

d10 Potion Forms 
1 Small medicine bottles with only a few ounces or liquid, one round to use
2 Glass or clay bottle or sealed jar with a quart of liquid, one round to use
3 Powder can be eaten, one round to use
4 Powder or vapour can be inhaled, one round to use
5 Medicine bottle of vapour to inhale, one round to use
6 Pill, usually large and foul tasting, one round to use
7 Candy or cake, one round to use
8 Eyedrops, one round to use
9 Ointment can be rubbed over the body, one round to use, d3 if clothed
10 Liquid requires a syringe, d3 round to use but 1 once your hooked

Sometimes potions are made with mistakes or the alchemist or whoever can make inbuilt weaknesses for various reasons. Making batches increases risks of side effects. Sometimes they arise from substitutions in recipes or poor aging 
(that powder was a liquid potion). A potion pusher might cut the potion with some other ingredient like opium. Such potions might be slightly cheaper. A potion maker can take longer to make a pure potion and use better ingredients and can be an extra 200gp. Some side effects are an improvement. A fireball potion that only harms chaotic evil people might be handy. Potion users often carry a identical healing potion and injected poison potion tegether to stop enemies using them. Some users might resist the negative effects eventualy or have a antidote. If your addicted to a potion you can substitute alcohol or other substance to abuse instead.
