Default Skaoi's Hair

Skaoiís hair
1hit point, immobile, 1point penetrating damage (sting) one shot when stepped on. Camouflaged. typically found in clusters of 3d6

2mm long needle shaped mollusc-like immobile amphibian, found on the beaches of the arctic iceshelf. Camouflaged as an ice crystal, a Skaoiís Hair sting can easily penetrate the sole of a standard spaceboot delivering a sting of nerve toxin. Whilst essentially harmless due to the minuscule dose, the toxin will register on scanners as highly lethal !!

Typical use....make the players paranoid... and could be used to create a dose of a very lethal unique and unregistered poison if collected in quantity.

Neat

And given the time and effort, having the "Lethal" poison break down over a relatively short time at above 20C would be just typical!

This strikes me as more simple player harassment. No way of detecting it given the size. As for the minuscule doze, one milligram of VX is lethal to an adult male, with lesser quantities capable of killing susceptible individuals.

If stepped on, the person goes into muscle spasms induced by the agent for a period of time and then should take a permanent loss of 1D6 to his dexterity due to long-term nerve damage.

I march to my own set of bagpipes. Caution: This individual thinks that studying logistics is FUN.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
