This sickly grey liquid does not actually contain alcohol, but it has much the same effect on mind flayers as alcohol has on humanoids. It is made of the distilled fluid of human brains, using only choice donors to ensure the best flavor. Some mind flayers go without sustenance for weeks before consuming brine, which supposedly enhances the taste to rapturous levels.
A mind flayer who consumes a flask of illithid brine must pass a DC 11 Fortitude save or become intoxicated (see Arms and Equipment Guide, page 32). All other races are instead sickened for 1 hour if they fail their save.
Cost: 100 gp per flask.
