Pre FDA Drinks were just Game Potions in Disguise

Hi there, Damien here. I just wanted to tell you all how handsome and beautiful you look this fine and wonderful day. I read a lot. I read two books a week, on average, and about a quadrillion history articles. And let me tell you something – I’m starting to think that the FDA shut down real life game potions. Let me show you why.

  1. Let’s get the most famous one out of the way quick. Coca-cola. Everybody knows that it had cocaine in it. It was developed by John Pemberton as a way to ease himself off of opium while still killing the pain of wounds got fighting in the Civil War. Pemberton soon realized that the concoction seemed to be an upper. It didn’t just kill pain. It made him happy, it gave him energy, and it seemingly increased his ability to see things that were farther away.
Plus it was amazing to snort lines of it up one’s pretty little nostrils!

Let’s put that into game terms. Coca-Cola = +1 health regen/s +1 stamina regen/s, +10% farsight for ten minutes, + 1000 Let’s Partay!

2. Next on the list is 7 Up. It is not so well-known for its drunk properties, perhaps because its name wasn’t a tit for tat advertisement of the drugs contained within. Well, unless you were one of the lucky few who knew that the atomic weight of its main ingredient, Lithium, is 7. And that Lithium is known as a giddy antidepressant, thus an upper.

I . . . I can’t stop laughing. So happy!

So let’s call it a potion of happiness? + 5 to all CHR-based checks for 1 hour.

3. This one has been off the public radar for a long time, but once upon a time people heralded the unique and potent effects of the elixir Laudanum. Opium juice! The drink was heralded for a number of magical properties, most notably its ability to aid sleep, but it also cured essentially all disease.

Also a tremendous remedy to finding clues and solving crimes in Victorian Era London!

Potion of cure disease – ends disease debuff, allows peaceful slumber, halving the necessary time to encamp.

4. AI rolled through all sorts of brands of cough syrup while compiling this list before I landed on an old top shelf brand of merit. Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup. It was a delicious elixir made for children that was half morphine. Not only did it treat coughs, but it could be used for all sorts of pain and even purportedly mellowed people out. A powerful potion indeed!

Please, mam, can I have some more?
