I just got back from a run to pick up some cigarettes (Marlboro Reds for those interested). And, it got me thinking. Runners? Druggies? You tell me.

As for me, Nightshade smokes cigarettes, and 2 of my team smoke cigars. Oh, and one MAKES BTLs.

I usually give my PCs a different vice, from NERPS Anti-D to Zen depending on the character, but usually nothing henious simply to make it easier on the GM.

I'm waiting to see who votes that they're 'clan'. biggrin.gif

My current character would never use or deal, but the last one... Our troll "found" 60 hits of NovaCoke and he took to dealing (what he wasn't using, that is.) My last character made a deal or two, just for fun and some beer money. Well... SoyBeer or whatever.

I'd be the biggest fucking BTL junkie you'd ever see.
Weredigo
Me and all my characters have the same vices, Nicotine, Caffine, with just a pinch of THC every now and then...
Tziluthi
Amazing how much difference a single letter can make. Us clan folk don't need no drugs.
Grinder
My current character is a an ex-cop who sometimes drinks too much and who sells hard drugs and btls. He and his team have a contact at the mafia who gives them names of rivals selling drugs so my char and the team beat them up, take their drugs and sell them.

My lchar before was a THC-addicted elf ki-adept.

Personally, i drink too much at parties (let's say once or twice a month) but don't drink the rest of the month. Sometimes i smoke some thc, but that's not that often.

When I skimmed through that, I could have sworn that you'd written "to kids" rather than "and btls". And for some reason I found that pretty funny. smile.gif

My character has just gone down the dark road of combat drugs, just starting to get addicted now makes some fun playing!

Drigs for us, you gotta watch for dem damn drigs. Getcha every time, do drigs.
Fortune
Silly rabbit! Drigs are for kids.

Much like me, my characters... Caffeine, Nicotine, Sugar and sex. What more addictions can a man take?
Talia Invierno
Coffee has to be one of the most popular addictions -- after all, so many of us know that one so well. For variety, make it an addiction to caffeine in a character that won't touch anything but a specific brand of soft drink (Scorched, maybe?).

In the PC I've just been handed, I get to figure out how to play an addiction to the "zombie-making" drug (most probably fugu + Datura) ... but without knowing what it is. (Character has just been ex-zombified.) I'm thinking to start with a desperate need to somehow reduce the sheer amount of sensory stimulation (too much! from a normal environment), go from there. Hopefully she won't end up addicted to too many other substances in the process of trying to figure it out ...

When I kill myself, I'm using a gun. Cigarettes are for cowards.

Much as I'd like to say that I'd be above such things...

Well, as big a tool as Dennis Miller is, he made a very profound joke about virtual reality, oh, about 12-15 years ago (I'm pretty sure it was the HBO special he did from Washington, D.C. in 1993). Something to the effect of, "the day an unemployed ironworker can lie in his BarcaLounger with a Fosterís in one hand and a channel-flicker in the other and fuck Claudia Schiffer for $19.95, itís gonna make crack look like Sanka."

Wait, rock and roll is an addiction?

Actually anything that a person Wants rather then Needs can be classified as an Addiction, wether it be physical, mental, social, emotional.

Actually, if you require it so you don't go into withdrawls, then it's an addiction.

Wanting it does not mean you're addicted -- just that you want it.
