Anti-Fatigue Stimulant Syringes
Spice is one of the most flourishing illegal markets in the galaxy, picking
up and consuming thousands upon thousands of people every year. It is also
one of the most addictive and mind corrupting businesses as well.
Most illeagl spices, such as Mk. VI, are generally sold on black- and
underworld-market depots operating on distant Mid and Outer Rim planets.
However, with careful, non-maket flooding dealing with the help of flase
advertising, some high-grade spices can be marketed as medical products.
The Mk. VI couter-fatigue stimulant drug is one of devastating long-term
effects. However, when used in moderation, it can be a helpfull tool to
those who need extra physical strength and perception for a short period
of time. Prying on the nervous system, the Mk. VI spice drug is merely
nothing more to the public than an anti-fatigue stimulant.
Dealers that sell Mk. VI are usually shady characters, and are ones that don't
stay in system very long. Imperial penal codes state that posession of spice is
illegal and can warrant anywhere from five years to life imprisonment.
However, selling illegal spice is a much more serious offense - life
imprisonment or even termination of the individual(s) involved.
Model: Loput Industries Mk. VI Counter-Fatigue Drug
Type: Anti-fatigue stimulant
Availability: 2, R or X
Cost: 50 (per syringe; 50 ml dose in each syringe)
When the character wishes to use the stimulant, have him make a Stamina check
and compare his roll with the chart below.
1-5 Stimulant works as normal.
6-10 Stimulant has no effect on user.
11+ Stimulant has no effect on the
user. User also suffers from 3D
If the roll of the numbers 1-5 comes up, the user recieves an additional +2D to
all Dexterity, Perception and Strength skill rolls for 1D hours (a maximum of 4
hours only). However, at the end of this period, the user SUFFERS a -1D from all
the attributes and their respective skills listed above (due to the awkwardness
of the character's normal ability after the drug).
Long Term Penalties:
And, for every two syringes a character uses (the gamemaster should keep track)
the character's Stamina skill is depleted by -1. (Example: Vandal Lawson uses
four syringes in one day and has a Stamina of 3D+2. His stamina now, after using
the drug, is only 3D). This is because the character becomes more use to and
dependant of the stimulant.
However, should the user withdraw from stimulant use after taking more than eight
doses (syringes), he is penalized by a -1D to all attributes and skills for a
period of 1D+1 days. If the user has taken more than twenty-five doses worth of
the stimulant, he suffers from a more severe penalty of 1D weeks of -1D attribute
and skill penalties.
