New Angels Of Promise
Marketed as the ultimate personal protection device, the Fumigator is nothing more than a small can of gas that can be hung from a belt loop, purse, or even carried in the palm of someone’s hand. The gas inside is a severe irritant when sprayed in the vicinity of a target’s eyes, nose, mouth, or other mucous membranes. The victim of the gas will suffer from burning and tearing (in the case of the eyes) and, when inhaled, will suffer from severe nausea. Basically, it will keep someone off balance and distracted long enough for a potential crime victim to flee the area or call for help. The gas inside breaks down quickly, so there is no fear of it affecting others that may be nearby. This weapon is only effective if the target is mortal and has an unprotected face – particularly the eyes and nose or mouth. As long as the user of the Fumigator wins the Combat Contest, the victim will then suffer the effects of the spray. Armor does not protect against these effects, unless said armor protects the victim’s face – in which case it simply blocks the spray. Anyone affected by the Fumigator must succeed at a Hard Tenacity Feat Test to resist this. If this Test is failed, the victim loses 2 Actions per turn for one to ten minutes (roll one die), which can effectively reduce a character’s Actions to zero. Only one Test needs to be made per turn when struck by the spray and the effect of the stun is not cumulative. A target may again be affected on the turn following his recovery from the last spray.
