Feng Shui: The Lost Island
This is a coil of wires attached to a rectangular 3 inch by 5 inch ARB battery pack which can be strapped or taped to any sufficiently large portion of your outer anatomy. When plugged into an AI/O port, the ARB pack writhes obscenely, generating energy that stimulates your nervous system, making you artificially faster. Make an Arcanowave Device check when you first plug it in, with your Speed rating as the Difficulty. Add the Outcome of this check to your Speed for the purpose of making Initiative Checks. This effect lasts for a number of sequences equal to the Outcome. Having your nervous system hopped up in this way is debilitating; at the end of any sequence in which you’ve had your neural stimulator plugged in, you suffer 1 point of Impairment. Impairment is cumulative. Unplugging and then immediately replugging a neural stimulator is especially debilitating, adding 2 points of Impairment each time it is done.
