    Black Cat

    TYPE: Drug

    INGREDIENTS: “Black mana”, a substance made from a perversion of mana in the drowned city -- though only a handful of people know this (mostly magistrates and city officials). Only through fluke did a couple of adventurers happen upon it and seize what they could -- and only with the aid of an alchemist did they create a marketable substance. Other ingredients: Trade secret.

    CHARACTERISTICS AND EFFECTS: An initial thrill of senses and surge of mana create a high that many find dark or ‘evil’. There is definitely something not right about this drug; perhaps one of the reasons it feels so good. Initial reactions are a numb tongue, some tingling to extremities, and a haze of gold or minor hallucinations. Overdose/extended use may lead to numbness of extremities, black/gold vision or blindness, more intense hallucinations, and mana poisoning. This drug is incredibly rare (for now) with only 1 known source for its primary ingredient, after which the drug is named. Dispensed as a drought in a little glass vial.

Glow causes euphoria and peace with the world as well as heightened senses. Sight becomes vivid and colors are more vibrant. Sounds can be felt on a spiritual and emotional level. Bonds can seem stronger than they really are. The drug makes a user feel nothing but positivity. Glowing eyes, usually just a flash but can last an extended period of time in rare cases. Negative side effects include: brain damage, psychosis, addiction, and even death.

    RARITY: Dependent on supply and demand. At times a dealer might be trying to push the product if the insects are breeding at a faster rate than they can sell and over infestations have devastating effects. When this happens the prices are dirt cheap.
