The entire purpose of the world is skribbane! Which is immensely hard to satisfy, seeing whereas Alorael has it all locked up and guarded by sniper rifle...

Okay. Now to answer the question:

Skribbane is not copied on anything. It is an original drug. As best I can tell, Skribbane is a modified form of Energy Herb, grown to be chewable. You chew it, it stings your mouth, you get enfused with energy and as the game puts it "You feel like rushing out and killing something evil!" use it too much, it stops doing good things for you. you get addicted and the addiction damages you if you dont chew enough skribbane. Skribbane is incredibly powerfull because its % based. Instead of getting a set +100 HP or something over the top, it gives you roughly +25% of your normal full MP/HP back, or something thereabouts. What makes it insane is that this can be added on no matter what. You can have used Divine Restoration, and hence already be over the top for HP, and still chew 10 skribbanes to get an insane HP boost over that. In short....Skribbane is what you use if your rushing through the game, not doing sidequests or levelling up or getting equipment, and yet wish to slay the last boss. Also , it should be noted that you can get 2 pieces of skribbane herb in the first province, and 5 in the Isle of bigail (since thats where its grown....them dirty anama's!) So have fun, chew your heart out (not literally, hopefully) and take that skribbane and LIKE it! - by the way, you also get a "special package of herbs" as a sidequest.....thats skribbane, but you cant use it.

1. Is there any withdrawl effects of just having one chew of skribbane?

2. Where are those two samples in Kriszan Province?

This, of course, coming from somebody who has never played E3 beyond the unregistered version. Just curious.

First coupla chews doesnt do anything addiction-wise. As far as the samples in Kriszan....I'll have to re-search (or research) the area. Sorry. Skribbane really isnt that important anyway.

I'm gonna open a desintoxication center for the spidweb board's member !
It's gonna be free of charges for the ones who triple post. :)

I don't think the K province has the drug in Exile.

I'm not sure about that, though I've thoroughly searched out everywhere in the demo.

In fact, I don't think Aloreal's pitiful drug can be found in the E3 demo. Except (possibly? Haven't played E3 in over a year) in the crazy monk's hut.

A comes before E in my name.

Mockery is perfectly natural, but my drug is not pitiful. It is also mine. If my dealers have been selling to others, there will be consequences. Oh yes, there will.

Triple posting, on the other hand, is entirely unnatural. Boo!

—Alorael, who has his own detox proposal. Anyone caught with skribbane will be sniped. They will then be forced to do hard manual labor on a skribbane plantation for the next two decades.

How do you snipe someone without killing him?

Well, you'd probably be even better taking out someone's leg in a combat situation. Enemy combatants won't stop to help a dead man, but somebody who's injured will lure in more targets for you to keep on debilitating. So depending on your circumstances, snipe-to-kill is a poor idea.

There are some mad monks in Gebra, which can be reached by taking a ferry from Storm Port in southeastern Valorim. They're the only mad monks I can think of in the demo of E3.

—Alorael, who doesn't recall seeing any skribbane there. He thought that the monks were driven mad by kung fu, especially the feisty slap of pain, and not mere drugs.

In the scenario Backwater Calls (currently in beta) , you can buy Gremlin Wine, by the shot. Go Gremlin. Hic! Merlot with tangy herbs and spices. A fine bouquet.

Actually, I once toured those islands, or maybe they were the islands off of Bigail, but somewhere I met a huge encounter of monks, mad monks, and gorgons I think(?). They hacked and slashed my rather unexperienced party to death with their 6 hits apiece. I hate those stinkers.

Add a pinch of pixie dust to your gremlin merlot and it will give you that far away feeling...

You have committed a major breach of the CoC, WM. I'll let you figure out how!

—Alorael, who will take skribbane over coffee spiked with cocaine any day. Sure, the latter has caffeine as well as a harder drug, but skribbane is skribbane.

I think skribbane is an original drug *shrug*

Okay. From the top:

I chew my skribbane, and
Chase it down with lots and lots of cheap wine
then I
drink a little normal wine
Chase that with some mushroom merlot and almaria yellow for variety
not done yet
kick it with the gremlin wine
tip it with the soporific brew
the soporific herbs, those I chew
and after all of this, I get sick and spew spew spew
