The most lethal of all poisons, two-step venom is a distilled concentrate of several of the nastiest poisons known to mortals. It gains its name from the simple fact that very few of its victims can take more than two steps before dying. Like hand of death, two-step venom is usually carried in fragile containers and is instantly absorbed into living flesh, where it races through the bloodstream until it finds the heart and brain, which it destroys. The use of two-step venom against a sentient being is generally considered to be a crime punishable by death in most civilized areas.
A thrown poison is a type of consumable alchemical item that represents a small breakable vial being hurled at an enemy. To use a thrown poison the prop to represent the poison must be "at hand", easily reachable. As long as this is the case you may use a tag bag to make the attack described by the item. After this is done make sure you remember to destroy the piece of paper that represents the item, it was used when you "threw" it at your opponent in character.
Blade poisons, ingested poisons, and thrown poisons all require the herbalist skill to use. If a character attempts to use any of these types of alchemy compounds they fail to use the item successfully and suffer the effects as if the item were used on them.
