This naturally occurring fruit comes from a strange flowering tree that grows only on remote islands. It resembles a pear, but with a more golden color and a slightly rounder shape. Lotus fruit is very tasty, as crisp as an apple but sweet as a pear, and very filling a single fruit is enough for one meal. Upon eating one of these fruits, the person must make a DC 16 Will save. If he succeeds, he is dazed for one round. Failing the save means that the individual suffers a 10 penalty to Intelligence, cannot cast any spells, and wants nothing more than to stay in this location and eat more lotus fruit. The individual can make a new Will save each hour, but each additional fruit consumed increases the DC by 5. Attempting to take the person away from this location, or to deprive him of more lotus fruit, will cause him to burst into a berserk rage. The penalties vanish if the person goes one full day without eating another lotus fruit.
