Land of Parma
In the land of Parma, spells may be placed into a number of different consumable items. Mechanically, these items are no different from potions, but they typically represent the background of the creator. The alternative potions presented here are only examples. Many other items exist and may be encountered or used by adventurers. (See Complete Arcane, p. 138.)
Potion Fruit: Grown primarily by half-giants and thri-kreen whose forefathers migrated from Athas, potion fruits can be cultivated in the time it would take to brew a potion of the same sort. While the magic of a potion fruit keeps it fresh indefinitely, they are typically dried for ease of storage and transport.
Heli-cakes: These sweet treats are baked by the clergy of Heli. Minor cakes are given out at festivals while more potent blessings are sold. Though primarily prepared by priests, Heli-cakes may also be made by mages.
