Chemical Agents
Nasty toys for CP2020

BioWarFare Punk (21kb)
This is a list of chemical warfare agents I pulled together from CP2020, various supplements, I.C.E.'s CyberSpace, the Tank Girl RPG, and a few other sources. Each agent is listed with name, strength of effect, effect, vector and cost.

Strength is the number required on a roll of BOD or RESIST TORTURE/DRUGS to ignore the effects of the drug (although some have a Strength rating of "Auto" which means you cannot ignore the effects).

Several of the agents in question have mutliple strength ratings and effects. What this means is that a single roll of BOD or RESIST TORTURE / DRUGS is required and is then referenced to the list. Any levels the roll exceeds are ignored, but any levels that were not exceeded are applied.

For Example: Let's say I just squirted MonStEr with Antidiuretic Hormone during one of his rampages and he rolled a Resist Torture / Drugs roll of 17. This means he completely ignores the Strength 10 and 15 results, but still is affected by the Strength 20 and 25 results - meaning severe embarrassment and dehydration.

For the record, Beta and Alpha Fomorol are the brand-names of Biotoxins I and II respectively in our games.
