The potion of sleeping can make you fall asleep.


Quaffing a blessed potion puts you to sleep for for 13-23 turns, an uncursed one for 25-35 turns, and a cursed one for 37-47 turns.

If you have sleep resistance or free action, "you yawn" and the potion will have no effect.[1]

Monsters will throw these at you. If the potion hits you, then the vapors will make you fall asleep ("You feel rather tired.") for 1 to 5 turns, and abuse your dexterity.[2] If the potion hits a monster, then the monster temporarily sleeps ("(The monster) falls asleep.") for 1 to 12 turns, unless the vapors miss the monster or the monster has sleep resistance.[3]

Encyclopedia entry

This entry is also used for the potion of booze.

On waking, he found himself on the green knoll whence he had first seen the old man of the glen. He rubbed his eyes -- it was a bright sunny morning. The birds were hopping and twittering among the bushes, and the eagle was wheeling aloft, and breasting the pure mountain breeze. "Surely," thought Rip, "I have not slept here all night." He recalled the occurrences before he fell asleep. The strange man with a keg of liquor -- the mountain ravine -- the wild retreat among the rocks -- the woe-begone party at ninepins -- the flagon -- "Oh! that flagon! that wicked flagon!" thought Rip -- "what excuse shall I make to Dame Van Winkle!"
