Fast Drug is named because it makes the universe (to its user) appear to move much more quickly. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The drug slows down personal metabolism at a ratio of approximately 60 to 1. Users are extremely vulnerable because they are living at such a slow rate; but physical aging is also slowed, and the need for consumable supplies is reduced, thus allowing conservation of air and food. [2] This can be particularly useful when trapped on a ship without properly functional life support systems.

Fast Antidote Drug[edit]

Fast drug takes effect immediately upon ingestion; one dose typically lasts for up to sixty days, making that time appear to be only one day. An antidote exists which cancels the effect remaining when taken. [3] An antidote is available to end the effect before sixty days.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Many societies experiment with extremely low temperature baths to slow down metabolism and others artificially induce comas. By the TL:10-12 epoch, the fast drug has become ubiquitous and highly valued for survival or emergency applications..

The Knowledge Drug is an RNA and a nootropic drug combination that can teach the user new skills and knowledge. Knowledge drug injections must be administered into the Cerebrospinal fluid by someone with medical skill to take proper effect. The drugs are tuned to either teach specific skills or apply to general knowledge and background information.

Opines are a class of drug used as an analgesic and pre-operative sedative. They bind to certain receptor sites in the human brain working as an analgesic and as a depressant: opines can also induce a sense of euphoria and pleasant physical sensations.

All opine is produced by synthesizing analogues of the chemicals found in the Terran opium poppy, (papaver somniferum), a flower native to Terra and used as an analgesic for millennia. Opine can be swallowed, applied topically or injected. It is sold in vials, capsules and derms, with 1 or 2 units being the usual dose. Opine costs around Cr5 per unit. Opines used by Humaniti include morphine, etorphine, and diacetylmorphine.

PDPT-beta is a chemical compound that serves as the basis for a family of experimental broad-spectrum antibiotics. The PDPT-beta based antibotics can be selectively "tuned" to wipe out specific types of bacterial, viral, or cancerous growths, while leaving adjacent benign growths untouched.

The compound was discovered by Seaharvester scientists in the corpse of a pre-reproductive phase daghasasi specimen in 1097, a creature native to Bellerophon (Solomani Rim 1519). The full name of the compound , Cis-1, 2 paradichloro-triethyl-aminopro-cyclohepa-trenyl-4-tricyclohexene-beta is rarely used. Thus far, no synthesis of the chemical has been produced, and no source other than the daghasasi oguls has been discovered.

Tech Level TL–9
Weight 1.0 gram

The effects of Pediica Spice is to cause a rapid increase in brain activity while slowing down the metabolism to a crawl. Many users enter what appears to be a catatonic state, unable to move or respond to external stimuli. The parts of the brain that govern imagination, art, and abstract thought go into overdrive. The catatonia and hallucinations generally last for half an hour. Long term exposure to spice can lead to permanent addiction and catatonia.

Pediica spice derives from the metamorphosed shells of a crustacean native to Pediica (Dagudashaag 2938). The Shagahi crustacea filled the world's equatorial oceans and, on their deaths, dropped the to the sea floor. Over time, with the correct pressure and temperature, the chemical changes produce the hallucinogenic powder. Later geographic uplifts makes these layers more accessable to mining.

Harvesting the spice is a difficult and time consuming affair, made more complex because the drug is illegal on most worlds. Pediica itself is classified as a planetary war memorial, the mines closed, and access guarded by the Imperial Interstellar Scout Service. When available a gram packet sells for Cr1,000 and will provide two 'trips'.

Slow Drug is named because it makes the universe (from the viewpoint of the user) appear to move more slowly.
  • This effect is achieved by accelerating the user's metabolism.
  • In effect, the user lives at a much faster rate, approximately twice as fast as normal. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

When taken, slow drug takes effect after about 45 seconds, and continuing to function for around an hour, give or take a number of minutes. At the end of its effect, the user receives physiological damage to the nervous system as part of the drug's effects. In addition, the user is extremely fatigued; he or she is treated as if utterly exhausted, and must recover from that fatigue. A person under the influence of slow drug, because he or she is living at twice the normal rate, is allowed nearly twice the reaction time available to normal individuals. The person can fire a weapon twice as quickly, or take twice as many melee actions, or move twice as far as normally. [2]

Medical Slow Drug[edit]

A medical slow drug is also available, being used to hasten recovery from wounds or illness. One dose causes unconsciousness, and the passage of thirty days equivalent time in one day. During this period, ordinary healing takes place. No wounds or physiological damage is received from the use of medical slow drug. Be certain to note the passage of time at the increased rate during period of drug use. [3]

Slow Antidote Drug[edit]

No information yet available.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Slow drug slows down the outside world allowing an individual to function at a much higher metabolic rate than normal. This also forces an individual to radically increase nutritional intake often forcing individuals to consume tens of thousands of calories or more within a single twenty-four hour period. Speeding up an individual’s metabolism and cognition can be very hard on the body and leave lasting physiological damage.

Yana is a mild euphoric and hallucinogen, which is both physically and psychologically addicting. It derives from the leaves of Redleaf, a plant native to Kediiga (Dagudashaag 2123). The plant itself is unregulated and is frequently exported as a decoration. Yana itself is highly regulated, and it is illegal to process, own, or use.
