Spread Poison

1
A consumable vial that lets you afflict a target with a debilitating illness, poison, or malady of some kind.
Used by Evan Nyx, Created by Gengreatest.
(When activating this Effect, it is obvious you are interacting with the target. )

Evan puts his mask on and throws two vials of green liquid onto the ground creating a chemical reaction and a cloud of gas released via a chemical reaction.


Use up this vial and spend an Action to activate. Select a Living target within 20 feet. Roll 7 dice Difficulty 6, penalty does not apply. Your target may resist by rolling Body at Difficulty 7.

If you succeed, the target is afflicted with a Condition that causes one of the following symptoms:

  • Poisoned: The target gains a Severity-1 Injury which ignores Armor and doesn’t heal naturally. For every hour that passes, they receive a new identical Injury. If this new Injury would kill them, they roll 1d10 at Difficulty 6. Success cures the condition; otherwise, they will die.
Symptoms begin to appear immediately, and will remain and continue to worsen until the affliction is cured. The affliction is not contagious and will not spread to others.

The affliction can be diagnosed with a Medicine roll, and may be cured by modern medicine through treatment at a fully equipped facility. Treatment outside of a facility may stop the affliction from worsening for a day, but will not cure the underlying Condition.

Any Scars, Traumas, or Injuries caused by your symptoms cannot be healed until the underlying Condition is cured.

  • This consumable is destroyed when used and cannot be used again.
  • Successfully diagnosing an affliction also includes information about the treatment method.
  • Curing an affliction removes the Condition, but does not automatically heal any Injuries, Battle Scars, or Traumas which may have been caused by that condition.
