Tavis used such drugs on Rhys which is how he "learned" about the blocking ability, straight from Rhys' unprotected mind. Rhys even told Tavis to fill him up with the drugs he swore only to use for healing and wade right in. So yes it does exist. And yes it is very useful for healing practices. And like any tool or Power, it can be used for evil.

And yes for short periods, just like Merasha, it can be overcome with great effort. I'm going to say there is an antidote for it. That quickens the recovery time once taken. Anyone have an old healer text around? Maybe in the King's Library.

I wonder if there might be a handy Healer's potion recipe or counterspell in Aliset's family grimoire?   ;D

Might be a worthwhile use of a Hero Point.   ;D

First off, Both Columcil and Washburn are Healers from the Thuryn line. What is the possibility that they may rediscover Rhys' blocking technique.  No drugs necessary. LOL

Extract of Stenrect Crawler Venom

The sting of a Stenrect Crawler is very fatal. Fortunately these magical creatures are not normally found anywhere in the wild. They are only summoned to a location by a skilled Deryni Mage, and generally an unethical one at that.

The extraction of the venom of a Strenrect Crawler is known only to a very few. One wrong move and the Deryni attempting to obtain the venom will be it's victim instead. It is rumored in some select circles that the Deryni faction known as the Black Order of Death has perfected the calling of this creature and the extraction of its venom.

However it may be obtained it is used on the blade or other sharp instrument that penetrates the skin and draws out the blood of the victim. The victim usually does not survive the attack.

The venom, in this form, causes intense and constant pain with the victim unable to perform any other actions. They will bleed from their eyes, collapse under convulsions and then enter the mercy of being unconscious.

In game terms. The player must make a Save Test ever turn for 1d6+1 turns. For each failed Test the character takes 1 HP of damage.

It is said, that the Black Order of Death has a distilled and more potent version of this poison.

Oh this isn't anything new. This is what Feyd used against Brioc de Paor. He unfortunately survived.

Any chance the Black Order developed an antidote. I mean you wouldn't want to accidentally cut your self with your own knife and not have a way to survive it.
