"Yes and no. While it is a notable a poisonous substance, I use it solely for the medical prospects." Malcolm went on to explain quite happily. It was becoming clear it was dangerous to speak shop around this healer with the risk of a lesson or lecture around every corner. "The same toxins found in deathcaps that affect the nervous system are also brilliant at killing off unwanted bacterial infections and fungus. You just have to be careful with the application and ensure it's diluted to the point where if it does entire the blood steam the worst that'll happen is the patient may feel some dumbness in the affected area."Stryder221 wrote:"Just about anything can be a poison, if you use enough of it and/or in the right way."
Malcolm's tone and expression shifted very quickly once he'd finished his chain of thought, recalling Phaing's wording and the possible implications of what she may have been asking.
He seemed somewhat offended by the concept of being confused for a brewer of poisons. He leans in close to the pair and his voice seems to lower to a deeper sombre tone. "I assure you both, you won't find any such substance in my store. Nor will I tolerate either of you experimenting in such a distasteful practice should either of you wish to continue studying alongside me. Am I understood?"
"Hmm?" Malcolm hummed, turning back to catch the last glimpse of the wolf leaving the establishment, suddenly bringing joy and excitement flooding back into his cheeks. "Right, well come on then. What are we waiting for?" Malcolm ask as he quickly shuffles out his seat and starts heading to follow the exotic visitor.Stryder221 wrote:"Speaking of the wolf, though..." This sight was what had led to him nudging Malcolm, motioning over to a certain Keidran, waving to the innkeeper before heading out. The guy stuck out like a sore thumb, which probably meant his sudden nudge was unnecessary.
