Dragonbane was a rare but extremely well-known poison that was extremely harmful to dragons.[1]


Ironically, the formulation of dragonbane originated from the same creature it was intended to harm. It was composed of the blood of three different varieties of dragons.[1]

Dragonbane appeared as an opaque, bright-blue liquid.[1]


When any non-dragon creature was exposed to dragonbane, they felt extreme pain throughout their body, including their internal organs.[1]

When a dragon was affected by the poison, by mere contact alone, they became unable to breath for a period of time.[1]


Flagrant imitations of this potent poison were more often encountered in the Realms than the genuine substance. This was partially due to the fact that dragons regularly killed-on-sight any individual they encountered who carried true dragonbane.[1]
