Trembles is a degenerative neurotoxin distilled from a rare type of fern. As the name suggests, victims find themselves afflicted with unsteadiness, poor reflexes, and traitorous muscles as the poison runs its course. Though not particularly potent, trembles is useful for maiming or incapacitating a subject rather than killing him outright.
Once the initial interval has elapsed, victims suffer a penalty of one Kept Die (–1k1) on all uses of Martial Knacks. After the second interval has elapsed, the penalty increases to two Kept Dice (-2k2) until the poison runs its course an hour later.
Notes: Repeated doses in rapid succession can simulate a stroke or aneurism, muddying the diagnosis.
