I Would Sell Haga to a Slayer Such as You?!?

James Mishler has posted his rules for black lotus in D&D. He gives it a wonderfully pulp, sword-and-sorcery vibe:

While sleeping under the fumes of the black lotus, the sleeper has terrible nightmares. For the uninitiated, these seem nothing more than horrific dreams; the reality is that a part of their spirit travels forth unto dark planes, strange realms of time and space, and there witnesses terrible events, past, present, and future.

I'm always hesitant to add another stat I or my players need to keep track of, but there's some very fun, atmospheric stuff here. I'll certainly be giving it a careful review for use in my Moldvay/Cook/LL hack.
