Suude is an illegal substance sold in Tal'Dorei. It is refined from arcane residuum, and causes a head rush and enhances senses and magic.[1]

Properties Edit

When suude is smoked, the user must make a Constitution saving throw or be knocked unconscious.[2] Upon a successful save, the user gains one sorcery point and access to a Metamagic option for one hour.[3] More sorcery points can be gained by smoking more suude, but doing so increases the risk of an overdose.[4]

The exact Metamagic granted is based on the color of the suude[5]:

  • Brown suude: Extended Spell[3]
  • Blue suude: Twinned Spell[6]
  • Red suude: Distant Spell[6]

On the Stream Edit

Scanlan told Jarett Howarth about how Vox Machina had met and allied with J'mon Sa Ord, and offered to get Jarett pardoned for an unspecified crime he had committed back in Ank'Harel. In exchange, he asked Jarett to get him some drugs. Jarett protested that he didn't deal with that kind of thing, but told Scanlan he could get some suude in the Turst Fields south of the Alabaster Sierras. Jarett offered to send a courier to get it, but warned Scanlan that the substance was highly illegal. However, Jarett did point out that the prison he'd normally be locked in is currently out of use due to the Chroma Conclave's attack on Emon, so now would be the best time to buy some. It took a bit more convincing from Scanlan, but eventually Jarett promised to get him some suude,[7] which he eventually supplied.[8]
The Mighty Nein loot the Overcrow Apothecary and manage to find a bag that Beauregard identifies as Suude, ground whitestone, equal to 1,000 gold worth of enchanting. This discovery leads Caduceus to conclude that the store was a front rather than a bona fide business.[9]
