Description The name says it all -- a brewed beverage which does not have the usual characteristics
"Strange brew, kill what's inside of you."

Strange brew is an artifact in Godville, often acquired as the treasure when a hero kills a monster. It has a modest value, and can be exchanged for gold coins at a trader's shop (or when a roadside trader is encountered).

Mythical Origins

According to the myth,[1] strange brew was first made by a mad witch wearing an outfit of electric blue. She went on a ocean voyage through a dangerous storm, and somehow this lead to the invention of strange brew.[2] Another version of the story attributes its creation to some kind of "glue-based she-demon"[3]. The truth may lie somewhere in between these two legends.

If you won't miss them too much...


Strange brew was obviously designed to be imbibed,[4] but the effects of its consumption are neither refreshment nor intoxication. {Heroes or Heroines}}can use it as a powerful de-wormer. Any parasites in the hero's system will be instantly exterminated. That being said, most heroes are sad and lonely travelers who enjoy the company of their tapeworms or Toxoplasma gondii.[5] As a result, the overwhelming majority of adventurers simply sell off the strange brew, using the resulting coins to buy some standard brew at a standard bar.[6]

Cultural Legacy

Most of our current knowledge of the history of a strange brew comes from a lyric poem[7] written many thousands of days Before Godville (b.g.), though its accuracy has been disputed by Mad Witch Anti-Defamation League as well as several music critics. Everyone agrees, however, that strange brew will, in fact, kill what's inside of you.
