Numbfish jelly venom was a poison extracted from the numbfish jelly. It was harvested by pirates from the Nelanther Isles and sold to merchants in Skullport and Waterdeep.[1]


This liquid was a cloudy, white substance that could be mixed in a drink or used as a contact poison. A single dose typically cost 300 gp.[1]


A victim exposed to this substance experienced numbness in the limbs that could range from annoying to debilitating. If not quickly treated (or resisted), it soon got worse and even affected the victim's thoughts, impairing their judgement.[1]
