TL 4
A drug that is both beneficial and highly dangerous, boost functions as a temporary adrenaline-enhancer. Boost was originally conceived for military purposes in an attempt to make the soldiers stronger, faster and more combat capable. A single injection of Boost grants the character a +4 bonus to Strength and a +2 bonus on Reflex saves, increases the characters movement speed by 10 feet, and increases the characters Hit Points by +4 per level. These effects last for 1 minute (10 rounds)

Unfortunately the side effects of Boost almost outweigh the benefits. For one, the chemical is addictive and can alter the perceptions of the character so that they think they can’t live without a dose of the drug. Additionally repeated use of Boost has debilitating effects on the body’s immune and nervous systems.

Each time a character uses a dose of Boost, they have a 10% chance of suffering a -2 penalty to Dexterity and a -1 penalty on Fortitude saves. These penalties last for 24 hrs.

If the character uses the drug again before recovering from these penalties the penalties increase and the recovery time extends for an additional 24 hours and are cumulative with the previous penalties.

Example: If a character uses another dose of Boost while still under the effects of the penalties the character suffers a -4 penalty to Dexterity and a -2 on Fortitude saves and the recovery time increases to 48 hours.
