Duration: (10 – Body) hours, minimum 1 hour
Effect: Suspended Animation:
Originally designed as a surgical aid, slab places the user in a state of near hibernation where breathing and heart rate are lowered to an almost imperceptible level. A Perception + Medicine (4) Test is required to determine the character is still alive without proper medical equipment (a medkit is insufficient). At the end of the duration, the user receives a –4 modifier to Reaction for a number of hours equal to half the equivalent duration of the drug (rounded down). Side effects commonly include shakes, chills, and excessive appetite.
