DescriptionWARNING: THIS DESCRIPTION IS FOR GAME PURPOSES ONLY. DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, USE ANY OF THE HERBS ON THIS WIKI FOR ANY REAL LIFE PURPOSE WITHOUT CONSULTATION WITH AN EXPERT ON HERBS AND THEIR EFFECTS.
The root of this herb sends the recipient to sleep. The sleep will last five hours, during which time the person cannot be woken except by a Antidote (Sorcerer*, Level 4), Neutralise Toxin spell (Warlock*, Level 4) or potion (i.e. Theriac). The root is said to bear a resemblance to the naked male form, hence its name. The plant has several dark green leaves which are about 30 cm long. The purple flowers of the plant are bell shaped. The root of the plant must be boiled on the night of a full moon and left to sit for an entire month before use. According to Kaikuhuran* legend, the sun god, Ra, sent Mathor to the Lands of Legend* to punish mankind. Mathor’s slaughter was so intense, that Ra took pity on man, and forced Mathor to drink the blood of his victims mixed with Mandrake root. He fell asleep and when he awoke was unable to remember why he had come to earth, and so the slaughter was ended.
