It can be administered orally or by hypodermic injection. This Mind-Altering Formulation is still Very Rare and Extremely Expensive!
Cost: 3 weeks at 3,600 Florins (300c) per dose.
Effects: Will Altering (Tell the Truth)
Duration: Two Minutes.
In game terms it requires an EXC Courage or Health score to resist the drug. If the recipient fails then he or she must answer any question put to them truthfully for the two minute duration of the drug's effects. There are still possible side effects to Veritasin, The Host should secretly draw a card from the pack:- If it is the Ace of Spades, the recipient is allergic to the formulation and is now mortally wounded and if the card is a Joker, then perhaps the recipient can lie regardless of the drug or the Host can decide that another more dramatically suitable effect occurs.
