Numerian Fluid Scavenger

Bottles and flasks hang from the belt and tattered leather armor or this ragged, wild-eyed human.

Special Abilities

Addicted (Ex) The Numerian scavenger is addicted to Numerian fluids (see page 28). She keeps her ability damage and penalties under control with lesser restoration. Roll once on the Numerian Fluids Side Effects table on page 29. If the result indicates a side effect that includes an addiction, the scavenger is addicted to that specific side effect in addition to Numerian fluids in general.

Latest Dose (Ex) There is a 50% chance the Numerian fluid scavenger drank her latest dose of fluid 1d4 hours ago and is still under the effects of the drug when encountered. If she has done so, apply the effects of the dose and roll on the Numerian Fluids Side Effects table on page 29. The alchemist uses alchemical allocation to consume her potion of lesser restoration to cure any ability damage she takes from the dose. The scavenger retains the unused dose of fluids in her inventory, even if she has consumed a dose earlier in the day.

Once, the Numerian fluid scavenger roamed the Felldales, searching for fluids to sell to hapless addicts. Now, she’s become addicted to her own merchandise, and increasingly drinks her finds instead of making the long trek to civilization. As her symptoms worsen, the Numerian fluid scavenger grows more and more paranoid, convinced that strangers seek to track her back to her sources of Numerian fluids and rob her of her precious liquids.

If her addiction is lifted by a healer or simply through forced withdrawal, the Numerian fluid scavenger could be a powerful ally for one looking for a source of such potent reagents.
