(S. Narthul, Q. Narsúlë)
Other Names: Tongue-toaster, Tonsil-death.
Type: Circulatory Relief.
Original Reference: Previously unreported.
Range/Where Found: Short grasslands and meadows, as
well as in gardens.
Characteristics: Firebreath is a member of the chili family,
producing a fruit similar to hot peppers. These small. toeshaped
fruits range in color from orange to deep red.
Firebreath flowers are small and white, appearing in spring
after the plant has reached a height of 2’.’
Medicinal Uses: If cut in half, rubbed with blood and placed
on a wound, firebreath produces a surprisingly cool
sensation, halting bleeding, dosing wounds, and instantly
healing 1-10 hits; if not pre-seasoned with blood, however,
the resulting pain is so intense as to nearly raise the dead.
Firebreath fruit must be fresh for its healing to be effective;
dried fruit is only going to elicit curses, no matter how much
pre-seasoning is performed.
Other Uses: The fire breath fruit is a favorite among those
who enjoy spicy cuisine, adding it to food in fresh or dried
form. Many carry a small stash with them in case their
innkeeper has run out. Ingestion of the fruit has no
medicinal effect except to relieve constipation.
Cost: 4 gp/dose (fresh); 4 sp (dried).
Difficulty of Finding: Medium.
Warning: If anyone handles a cut up firebreath fruit with
their bare hands and touches their eyes, they are blinded for
2-6 minutes and in such pain as to be unable to do anything
besides scramble for water with which to bathe their eyes.
