Title: Custom drugs - show us your best product
Post by: Jack_Spade on (12:33:13/07-06-15)
I tried to make some worthwhile drugs with the new Chrome Flesh rules. So far it seems that every good combat drug will severely weaken your muscles (there are a lot of blocks that lower STR and only one to raise it)
But generally custom drugs are useless as combat drugs since very few combats are longer than 3 combat rounds and speed enhancers will produce so addictive substances that you can just put a bullet in your own brain and save you the pain.


My best product so far is "Mule" (Warrior Foundation + Stonewall 3)
+2 Willpower, no side effects. 7R 135NY per dose

Useful as a "On your feet" medication in your auto injector is
Tank+Brute 1 and a prepared Bodyguard BTL (Target: Self)
with +3 Body and +1 Will you hopefully will come back from overflow damage.

Since we have no idea (my guesses are up on my thread about them) how the Addiction Ratings or Addiction Thresholds work..... I don't see how you do you figure we can use this yet. Did you find the missing Text that goes with the Table to explain the * on it?

Nope, therefore I did not calculate the rating and threshold.
Personally, I think it's Level -1 of each block to rating and threshold.

As a Face, I'd quite like a few doses of this:
Smooth Criminal, 6R, 115 per dose
CHA +3, Social Limit +1, AGI -1, STR -1, Crash DV 2S

Makeup:
Foundation: Charmer (CHA+1, Social Limit +1, AGI -1)
Block 8 (Smoothtalk): Level 2 (CHA +2, STR -1, Crash DV 2S)

Addiction Rating 6, Addiction Threshold 2, unless the blocks are supposed to add something to rating and/or threshold.

Addiction Rating of 7 & Addiction Threshold of 3.

Sorry for necro, but I wanted to keep the drugs in one topic.  Here's a couple of mine:

Street Name: Spider Bait
Cost: 245
Availability: 12R
Vector: Injection
Addiction Type: Both
....Rating: 7 (4 weeks)
....Threshold: 3
Speed: 3 combat turns
Duration: 10 x 2D6 min
Effect: +4 Logic, +4 Intuition, +1 Willpower, -1 Body, -1 Agility, -2 Charisma
Crash: 2S Damage (unresistable)
Formula: Genius(F), Razor Mind (2), Stonewall (2), Strike (1), Duration (1)

Beloved by many deckers but also used by a few burnout mages, Spider Bait improves mental focus.  However, the user experiences a detachment from his body and emotions while on the drug.

---------------

Name: Stage 2
Street Name: Rigged
Cost: 245
Availability: 12R
Vector: Injection
Addiction Type: Both
....Rating: 7 (4 weeks)
....Threshold: 3
Speed: 3 combat turns
Duration: 10 x 2D6 min
Effect: +3 Agility, +2 Logic, +2 Intuition, -2 Charisma
Crash: 4S Damage (unresistable)
Formula: Warrior (F), Razor Mind (2), Stonewall (1), Strike (2), Duration (1)

A less powerful version of a recent failure to develop a new combat drug.  Ripped from the data core of a pharmacorp, it was discovered to be more successful as a two stage drug.  Along with the formula, a number of possible applications was also released.  The most scary, or interesting depending on who reads it, is what is being called juicing.  Stage 1 is a hit Jazz , Stage 2 is an injection of Rigged, and finally a hit of Guts.

---------------

Street Name: Talisman
Cost: 225
Availability: 11R
Vector: Injection
Addiction Type: Both
....Rating: 7 (4 weeks)
....Threshold: 3
Speed: 3 combat turns
Duration: 10 x 2D6 min
Effect: +1 Body, +4 Willpower, -2 Strength, Pain Resistance 3
Crash: 2S Damage (unresistable)
Formula: Tank(F), Stonewall (1), The General (2), Strike (1), Duration (1)

Not many will admit to using it, but magic users of many traditions have made use of Talisman.

-------------------------

Street Name: Blaze
Cost: 405
Availability: 19R
Vector: Injection
Addiction Type: Both
....Rating: 8 (3 weeks)
....Threshold: 4
Speed: 1 combat turns
Duration: 10 x 1D6 min
Effect: +4 Agility, +1 Reaction, +2 Logic, +2 Intuition, -1 Strength, -2 Charisma, +2D6 Initiative, -1 to all limits
Crash: 9S Damage (unresistable)
Formula: Warrior (F), Razor Mind (2), Shock & Awe (2), Speed Demon (1), Stonewall (1), Strike (2), Speed (2)

A new drug being developed to compete with Kamikaze and Jazz, Blaze has found a following within gangers.  The short duration and incapacitating nature when the drug wears off prohibit any serious consideration by anyone else.

Street Name: Arclight
Cost: 285
Availability: 11R
Vector: Injection
Addiction Type: Psychological (Both?)
Rating: 10
Threshold: 6
Speed: 3
Duration: 4d6 x 10 minutes
Effect: Logic +2, Intuition +2, Charisma +2,Willpower +1, Agility -1, Reaction -1, Strength -1
Crash Effect: 2S Damage (unresistable)

Originally developed by NeoNet as part of their matrix combat enhancement project, and still used for this purpose by NeoNet employees. Arclight has become one of the most popular technomancer, and decker, drugs on the grey/black market. What is surprising is the number of faces, and corporate deal makers, who have taken to using Arclight during high level negotiations where the mental focus provided allows many to pick up ques they would otherwise have missed and gain advantages throughout the negotiations due to this.

I would actually like to say thank you for this thread necro and to compliment you on the timing.

Just last night I was reading through the custom drug section of Chrome Flesh and asking myself, "When was that thread with the custom drugs? Right when Chrome Flesh first came out, right? Arrgh, [because I am lazy and insufficiently motivated] I'll never find it."

Lo and behold, here it is first thing in the morning!
Title: Re: Custom drugs - show us your best product

Tecumseh:  No problem.  I looked around for more recipes, but there just weren't any.  I figured if I shared a few, maybe others would too. :)

Adamo1618: I don't think we double the price and reduce threshold.  Since custom drugs are at minimum pharma grade, isn't that included in the cost and threshold when creating them?  Considering the price of the rest of the drugs out there, it seems like it is.

Stoneglobe:  I'm calculating Arclight's AR at 9 and TH at 5.  So, a little bit less of a hard core drug. :)  If you drop the duration down by 1 level, the AR goes to 8 and TH to 4 which is a lot more friendly. 30min to 3hrs duration with an average of 1hr 45min seems decent.

I apologize for the next one... I had to do it.

Name: P-Rn Stim
Street Name: Pornstar
Cost: 245
Availability: 12R
Vector: Injection
Addiction Type: Both
....Rating: 7 (4 weeks)
....Threshold: 3
Speed: 3 combat turns
Duration: 10 x 2D6 min
Effect: +3 Charisma, +3 Body, +2 Willpower, -1 Agility, -1 Reaction, -1 Strength, -2 Logic, +1 Social Limit
Crash: 4S Damage (unresistable)
Formula: Charmer(F), Smoothtalk (2), Resist (2), Brute (1), Duration (1)

Not sure about the vector.  It seems like the extra cost of inhalation/ingestion is for adding it to injection.  I wonder if it's possible to swap injection for one of the other 2 without a change in availability.

The BARON's Own
Vector: Ingested
Speed: 3 Combat Turns (9 seconds)
Duration: 10 x 2d6 Minutes
Addiction Type: Psychological (Rating 7, Threshold 3)
Effect: +4 Charisma, +2 Willpower, -2 Strength, -2 Agility
A slightly hallucinogenic drug made from a variety of "only the highest quality" chemicals.  It effects the pleasure centers of the brain, and gives the user a relaxed, sensual feel.  Users tend to be much more agreeable and calm, with similar physical effects as Ex.  The side-effects however, are muscle weakness and reduced coordination along with a slight feeling of dizziness.  This often results in users walking with a bit of a swagger.  Very much a "turn on and tune out" kind of drug.  As a bonus, the relaxed and calm state seems to make it easier for shamans and other magicians to channel mana without getting burnt.  After the high runs out though, the feeling of dizziness and disorientation is strengthened, resulting in 4S damage, unresisted.

I don't recall the price; I made this as a run reward for helping a voodou drug dealer.

For super cheap, Genius (F) by itself is still good.  75n for +2 Logic and +2 Intuition for a small physical penalty.

My apologies for the necro (it's just the Domain of Black, no shedim drek, I swear!) but here's my first foray into cooking drugs:

Name: Flash
Formula: Warrior + Stonewall 1 + Strike 2 + Duration Enhancer 2
Vector: ingestion
Speed: 3 combat turns
Duration: 10x3d6 minutes
Addiction type: physiological
Effect: +3 Agility
Crash: 2S unresisted
Addiction Rating: 8
Addiction Threshold: 4
Availability: 9R
Cost: 225Y per dose

What can I say, I hate, hate, HATE side effects.

EDIT: Once i've wrote it down, I realized that the duration wasn't long enough - I was going for something to take BEFORE the action - so I've added additional duration enhancer.
