Drugs and Toxins

Drugs

25cr, mass 1, non-energized, rq# -

Drugs generate effects as indicated and can be Neutralized like a Toxin with a Science check of 11 and a MedKit or 8 in a Sick Bay or with administration of a “Detox” drug. It is an automatic action to administer drugs to an unresisting target (willing, stunned, unconscious, dead, etc.) Resisting targets can be drugged with a successful grapple attempt (page 40).

Patches

Drugs can be applied as patches. This increases their mass to 2 but does not require a free hand to activate. If you want to apply your patch to somebody else, it requires 3 automatic actions: remove it from your body, apply it to target’s body and activation.

*Drugs marked with an asterisk give the listed benefit but put a +1 difficulty penalty on all other skill checks.

Toxins

Needlers and Gas grenades are loaded with poisons. Consult the specific Toxin to see the effect it generates. You can purchase single doses of toxins to administer just like any other drug with a successful grapple (page 40)

Needlers

Any character shot with a Needler is automatically under the effect of the Needler toxin.

See Needler on page 83.

Gasses

A character in a module with a gas cloud at any point during the phase including the end of the phase must make a passive Athletics check of 11 to avoid the Gas effect. Once a character is affected, they suffer just as if shot by a needler with the toxin.

Ending Toxic Effects

A Science skill check of 11 as an action with a MedKit can be taken to neutralize all toxins and drugs in a character’s system. (Science check vs. 8 with a Sick Bay).

The Detox drug clears all drugs and toxins from the system.
