The Trading company and other sources around Arklay are selling a new, amazing high - Exta-Z
This is part of a sim story plot along the same lines as H1NZ, building a permanent issue that people need to deal with. EXTA-Z is a new type of drug created by an unknown source, mixing traditional Ecstasy with the newfound high traits of zombie flesh... While at first this might sound insane, the pill will NOT kill your character, and the only risk of anything permanent is addiction and becoming a carrier. The effects and stages are outlined bellow.
Stage 1 (First Week):
This is the 'high' phase, during this time the drug induces heightened senses, mild hallucinations, a feeling of being content with life, and a feeling of bliss... This can lead to reduced ability to process bad situations and can make the character more agreeable to things they wouldn't normally agree to. This effect will last 2-6 hours with a calm let down and is HIGHLY addictive.
Stage 2 (Second Week):
One week after taking the drug, even if the character only ever had one, negative side effects will occur as the tainted zombie flesh starts to mess with the system. The consumer will become paranoid, violent, irritable, might have some issues with speech and will contract a high fever. Self harm can take the form of clawing at the skin to remove 'itches', getting as bad as the victim possibly biting themselves. These effects last 1-2 weeks. Taking more of the drug removes this negative effect for 2-3 days at a time, but resets the 1-2 week timer after the effects return, causing characters to have to chose between suffering for a couple weeks or remaining an addict.
Stage 3 (OPTIONAL):
In some rare cases, the side effects continue to an even worse state, causing people to become 'living biters'. These living biters are still human and still alive, able to communicate and operate objects the same as a sane person could... Only they're not sane at all. People that hit this stage will become murderously violent, have a permanent hunger (which might cause cannibalism), and have their mind overtaken by voices. People at this stage also become incubators for the H1NZ Virus (they will not catch it themselves). This stage will last as long as Stage 2, except pills will NOT remove the effects.
