Poison damage is a special, decaying form of passive damage that can result from the use of certain combat items, familiars, spells and weapons. Some items do poison damage on their own, while others give a chance to inflict poison damage with weapon attacks.
Poison damage recurs in subsequent rounds of combat, decreasing in each round by 50% rounded down until there is no inflicted damage. Poison damage is treated as physical damage and can be decreased by the enemy's physical resistance.
Most poisons do not stack, and only the last poison to take effect will be used for poison damage. (Thus if you cast Stringozzi Serpent, a Mutant Cactus Bud attacked from a Buddy Bjorn, and a Mutant Gila Monster attacked as your familiar, only the Gila Monster's poison would have an effect.)
