Business Name: Pharmacy
Having attended to his most pressing duty, James slips across the grassy lawn to the nearby pharmacy. A vrusk in a pharmacists white coat helps McKilin restock his medkit with biocort and plastiflesh and the medic buys an extra 10 doses of biocort for a rainy day. Frontier Date 40.309 Another shore leave another visit. Sni'ktl scritches as his eyes and antennae paruse the phails, hypo's, cans and good old fashioned bottles. This time its four cans of "no sting" antiseptic, thirty cans of skin tone neutral biocort, twenty doses of "zippy dude" (a new brand of accelerator drug) and an oxydrug injector with ten shots of intravenous oxygen. Just once he'd love to come here only to browse. Goods/Services:

Accelerator Drug - This drug speeds up the body's actions. Only a medic may administer this successfully. When under the effects of the drug, a character adds +2 to the initiative die roll (in addition to normal bonuses) and can make one extra attack per turn in melee combat. The effect will last for a number of turns equal to the character's Stamina score (at the time the drug is taken) divided by 10. Each turn the character is accelerated, the person will lose four Stamina points. Lost points are healed like normal wounds.
Anesthetic Drug - This drug works exactly like a doze grenade, except that it must be injected into the target. Anyone may give the injection.
Oxy Drug Injector - This slowly releases oxygen into the bloodstream, supplying all needs for twelve hours. Oxy drug injectors are usually worn on the wrist, feeding the drug directly into the blood. The injector must be attached at a hospital. Once the injector is attached, the character may refill it with oxy drug as needed. The cost of a refill is noted on the price list. Note that an oxy injector will not protect a character in space; a spacesuit must be worn.
Staydose: Staydose puts a character to sleep for 24 hours, slows down his heartbeat and breathing, and helps stop bleeding. If a character's Stamina has been reduced to O or less, a Staydose injection must be given in 10 turns and will keep the character alive until he is taken to a hospital.
Stimdose A Stimdose injection gives a character 10 extra Stamina points for three hours. After three hours, the character loses the 10 Stamina points and must rest without moving for 24 hours. A Stimdose injection will not raise a character's current number of Stamina points above his original Stamina score. A Stimdose will not revive a character whose Stamina has been reduced to 0 or less. It wail revive a character who was knocked unconscious by a doze grenade, but will not restore 10 Stamina points to the character.
Universal Antibody - This antibody helps protect the person from any type of disease. It may only be injected at a hospital. Characters with the universal antibody have a +20% chance to resist any disease (if the chance to resist the disease is 0% (nil), the character is given a 20% chance). This product is a great boon to galactic tradesmen and explorers of new worlds.
