GeekOut Top 10s

Happy Spooky Season!

The witches brew, fruit of the cauldron, magic in liquid form, bottled and corked, and ready for mass distribution. They can be medicinal, toxic, empowering, destructive, or just plain weird. Sometimes it’s important to just randomly drink bottles you find on the ground especially if they glow, because it could be any of those adjectives, or all of them, and you’ll only know if you try.

Hold your nose, down the hatch, and hope this one isn’t poison. It’s the Top 10 potions. (more…)
