With this skill, a character can resist one attack with the “Poison” qualifier for each time the skill is bought. This includes all alchemical substances (including ingested elixirs) as well as all monster attacks that use the word “Poison.” It does not include Oil of Slipperiness or Paste of Stickiness. This is a Smart Defense; see the “Defenses” section for details. In order to use this ability, the player must call “Resist” when struck by the attack. Each purchase of this skill also increases the character’s maximum Body Points by 1.
