Creating The Potion Candles

After many days of deliberation, we have finally come to an agreement on how we were going to present the statistics for our Potion Candles. We are very excited to share these with all of you (finally). But, before we do there are a few things our editor wanted to say. You're all, of course, welcome to skip this rant and head right on down to the stats.

 

I would first like to say thank you for taking the time to read this section and I truly hope you enjoy our Potion Candles and item stats. You have all been very supportive and the TTRPG community is filled with some of the most lovely, supportive, amazing, and downright talented people.

 

Now over to the rant no one came here to read.

 

The way we suggest you use these candles is just that, a suggestion. Our Potion Candle statistics are for anyone who wishes to play the items in-game and does not want to create their own effects and stats for them. I would like to say, that there is no right way to play with these candles in your campaign or one-shot. We made our Potion Candle line for the intended use of being in-game items for your tabletop role-playing game experiences. The game we are most familiar with and wrote out our stats for is Dungeons & Dragons. You are however welcome to use them in any other TTRPG setting. Whether that setting is fantasy or not doesn't matter, you are the keepers of your own fate and we're not about to tell you which tabletop game to enjoy.

 

With these candles, we wanted to create a fun experience for both the players and enjoyable non-game-breaking items for the Dungeon Master (though we make no promises DM). 

 

Co-Owner of A Few Burnt Hairs, Laura Narvaez (yes Laura specifically), had the fantastic idea of wanting to create a product for everyday use that could also be used within the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Rather than make candles for each character class she instead thought of candles that would be items in-game. What better transition than potions into candles she thought and so A Few Burnt Hairs' Potion Candles were born.

 

Now what you've all been waiting for.

 

 After hours of looking at the descriptions and effects of the potions we were putting into candle form, and looking through the create your own items section in the Dungeon Masters Guide we finally came up with a fitting manner to present the items.

 

These statistics are free to use for anyone and everyone. They are not exclusively for people who have purchased our candles or any of our items. Feel free to use our Potion Candle stats in your game or campaign. It's always exciting for us to hear people tell us how they used the items we created in their last session. We love to hear the zany stories and the shenanigans everyone gets into.

Potion Candle Stats

Alluring Candle Of Charm

After 10 minutes, the creature that breathes in the scent of the candle becomes Charmed by the first creature they see for the next 1 hour. If the creature is of a species and gender you are normally attracted to, you regard it as your true love while you are Charmed. This purple-colored candle has a sweet citrusy smell.

Comprehensive Candle Of Language

This spell does not decode secret messages in a text or a glyph, such as an arcane sigil, that isn’t part of a written language. This candle smells of leatherbound books and is colored a royal blue.
