Blood of the Mantis

Found in Imir , fabled to be imported from a distant empire where slaves are sent to die in ritual combat against giant insects , this sweet yellow liquid can produce two very different effects . If consumed it creates feeling of euphoria and has been known to occasionally result in auditory hallucinations . This effect can last for hours . If instead the nectar is spread across the skin like an ointment within a few minutes the user begins to feel aggressive and angry , suffering from muscle spasms and painful sensations across the arms and legs . The skin hardens granting a +2 natural bonus to AC . The user also benefits from a +4 alchemical bonus to Dex and gains tremorsense out to 90 feet as they are able to detect vibrations . This second effect lasts for only a few minutes . Rumors suggest that employing both methods at once will have disastrous results .
