2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.

Hypo Canister[edit | edit source]

[[Summary::Hypo canisters are small glass compartments that contain certain substances, and that are used by injecting them with the hypo pistol delivery system.]] Standardly, each hypo canister is depleted after three uses. Hypo canisters can contain a myriad of different drugs, ranging from medicine to stims. Some of them are beneficial, yet others are hazardous to the user's health.

Canister Types[edit | edit source]

The different types of ammunition for the hypo pistol can be classified and categorized in different levels of effects. These levels are quite akin to spell levels, wherever applicable, and behave as such. The maximum level of a hypo canister is 6th. Where applicable, the save DCs for the effects of the canister and its cost can be found at the header of each table.

Creation[edit | edit source]

The creation of hypo canisters is an alchemic process, that requires extensive knowledge of chemistry and chemicals as well. Making a hypo canister requires an empty canister (2 gp), and sufficient chemicals as base material. The actual crafting requires Craft (alchemy) and Heal checks with a DC of 13 + twice the level of the hypo canister.
