Herstory Tour Link (As mentioned in the announcements!)

You can also find the rules from which our DM adapted the opium rules here!

Opium.  Consume 1 dose on a long or short rest.  Grants 1d6 temporary hit points which last until your next rest.  If consumed on a long rest, restores all your hit dice (as opposed to half).  Roll a Con save against addiction (DC 10 + addiction counter).

On each long rest, roll a Con save to shake off 1 point of addiction on a success (DC 10 + addiction counter).  If you have any points of addiction and take a long rest without consuming opium the following effects occur based on your addiction counter.

Addiction 1-3: You regain no hit dice during a long rest.  Your sleep is troubled by restless dreams.

Addiction 4-6: You regain no hit dice and only half your spell slots during a long rest.  You have trouble sleeping at all and feel jittery and uncomfortable, making it hard to focus.

Addiction 7-10: You regain no hit dice, no hitpoints, and half your spell slots during a long rest.  You cannot sleep or relax without opium.
