Adrenal Boost

Adrenal Boost: This adrenal gland enhancement
supercharges the character’s adrenal response to
situations that invoke stress, pain, or strong emotions
(fear, anger, lust, hate). When activated, the concentrated
burst of norepinephrine accelerates heart rate
and blood ow and burns carbohydrates. In game terms, this allows the character to ignore the –10
modi er from 1 wound and temporarily increases
REF by +10 (also boosting REF-linked skills and
Initiative). These modi ers apply until the character
has calmed down (if the character also has endocrine
control, p. 304, then adrenal boosts can be activated
and deactivated at will, and the negated wounds are
cumulative). [High]
