  • many of the mentioned names are double entries or multiple names for the same ingredient.This is intentional as the list should represent obscure names such as would probably be found and used in in-world documents such as alchemical treatises, magical recipes or grimoirs.Occasionally the Narrator will have to decide if a special or individual item or maybe a specific sub-type or local variety is meant, depending on linguistic origin ,context or name.


Magical "potions", "elixirs" or "draughts" are only briefly mentioned in the legendarium, though technically Miruvor, limpë, Ent-draughts, water of the enchanted river or Orc liquor would count as such.Some third sources provide additional material, but even MERP or ROLEMASTER never fully fleshed out how or why alchemy works within Arda or who exactly made use of it.The above list mostly mentions some of the more rare or bizarre examples, many of which reputable wise or loremasters probably would not make use of, but which could be found among the men of darkness, wild men or maybe sorcerers, conjurers or the occasional shaman, herd wizard or woodwitch.Additional draughts, potions, ointments etc. Can of course always be borrowed from real world sources of folk-medicine , though a few ingredients maybe should be replaced with with their better known middle-earth pendants.Real world historical alchemical sources could be drawn upon to represent alchemical or magical traditions of the Black Númenóreans, Easterlings, Haradrim, or maybe even Orcs.
