Addicted (Ex)

The strange fluid scavenger is addicted to strange fluids. She keeps her ability damage and penalties under control with lesser restoration. Roll once on Table: Strange Fluids Side Effects. If the result indicates a side effect that includes an addiction, the scavenger is addicted to that specific side effect in addition to Strange fluids in general.

There is a 50% chance the strange fluid scavenger drank her latest dose of fluid 1d4 hours ago and is still under the effects of the drug when encountered. If she has done so, apply the effects of the dose and roll on Table: Strange Fluids Side Effects. The alchemist uses alchemical allocation to consume her potion of lesser restoration to cure any ability damage she takes from the dose. The scavenger retains the unused dose of fluids in her inventory, even if she has consumed a dose earlier in the day.
