Tonic Allergy (D)

You are allergic to tonics.

The chance your mutant physiology reacts adversely to a tonic is increased to 33%.
If you react adversely this way to a salve or ubernostrum tonic, the adverse reaction effect is chosen randomly from among other tonic effects. You will still heal.

Tonic Allergy (D) is a physical defect that raises the chance of reacting adversely to tonics up to 33% (up from the default 5% for mutants). Creatures with this defect also may have a random adverse reaction in response to salve injectors or ubernostrum injectors, which don't ordinarily cause adverse reactions. The effect is chosen randomly from other adverse tonic reactions.

Advantages & Disadvantages

  • Provides four extra points for choosing other starting mutations
  • Makes salve injectors and ubernostrum injectors always heal you for the full strength, which otherwise only grant 1 tick of healing from the default adverse reaction.
