Traveller: Thaer of Tomorrow
Germium-based psychotropic drug invented by Dr. Lorenzo Luminato during the Vein War on Aren. It is usually packaged as a pale pinkish mist and applied to the cornea with a hypospray. Its synthesis involves dissolving unstable ionized Germium in a solution of heavy water thus surrounding it in a protective neutron “cloud” and giving the substance its name. The effects of Cloud vary with the user but the most commonly reported experiences involve euphoria, tingling sensations in the extremities and heightened perception of color as well as hallucinations in high doses.
Since its invention a number of different variations of cloud have gained popularity. The most popular variants are listed below.
- Drosis: A milky-green liquid miasma containing steroid and opioid elements designed to treat chronic pain and ease fatigue, usually administered by injection.
- Ambrosia: A pinkish gel miasma applied topically to the skin. Possesses strong euphoric and mood-elevating properties ideal for treatment of depression and post-traumatic stress.
- Chaos: A black crystalline miasma that can be smoked, snorted or eaten. Highlights the hallucinogenic and dissociative properties of cloud. Medical applications unclear.
