i promise, once i finish this entry, i will try my best to work on something that isn't entirely horrifying. i'm beginning to worry myself. :P

however.

been working on a kind of santharian version of bedbugs, as suggested i don't know how long ago by mister Anfang. one of the things they do is to occasionally make people dream. the dreams, i think, are addictive. so i was wondering about the bugs being powdered and sold, as:
a) a cure for stuff like sleep-ill, though perhaps not a very effective one,
b) a recreational drug. same idea as most, in that you're escaping the waking world.
what i've been trying to find out, and not quite managing, is what sort of drugs are already in Santharia, aside from booze and maybe pipeweed? is there room for this? i basically need to know if there's room for drug problems in some of the rougher areas of the bigger towns and cities, hence why this is posted here and not in the bestiary. also information on other recreational drugs'd be useful, so i don't duplicate anything already on site.

any help treasured as a gem of immeasurable preciousness. grin

Tharoc weed is used as a recreational drug, I believe

and Mayu beans have been a favourite addiction of RPers for years

Veell Elixir is addictive and causes peculiar delusions. The ingredients are at present not known, so there might be something in there. It's certainly worth a reference.

A simple search for 'addiction' in the Santharian search engine also revealed the Gunthreed Plant, the Arv (see also Valan's re-work in progress), the Vaninen Concoction, and the Santharian Addiction Syndrome (SAS). So you might want to have a look around and find a niche that hasn't been explored yet.

Good night, sleep tight, and hope that the bedbugs bite!

Daylong tea also has addictive qualities

You certainly should! I'd love to read about bedbugs, and am curious to see whether there'll be a bedbug hiveling. At present, I don't understand how a dream-inducing drug can alleviate sleep-ill, but you'll tell us that, I expect.

As far as creature-induced dreams go, there's also the ugling (might be worthwhile to compare bedbug and ugling dreams?) ...

Just as the author the Sleep-Ill entry I figured I'd mention, Sleep-Ill is in fact a santharianized version of narcolepsy. It's a condition whereby a person can fall asleep at random. Sort of the opposite of insomnia in that it tends to be too much of a good thing. So a sleep-inducing substance would be redundant for someone who suffers from it.

Perhaps these dream-inducing bugs could make sure they fall asleep at regular intervals by stimulating the are of the brain that controls sleep in certain ways? If that doesn't work, than these bugs could be used to cure a Santharian version of Insomnia.

good points Valan and M'ruk, thanks! i had vague ideas about it putting people out - sleep-ill was kinda tacked in there as a placeholder for "find out anout santharian sleeping problems", and therefore i really have no excuse for not doing lots of research on this. unfortunately i'm effectively moving house, so it might take a while.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
