Long Time Outsider Pondering Possibility of Becoming A Zar
Could be, there's plenty of doubled up terms in the setting (we are a 15 year old project after all Smile ).

A sophont designed to release aerosolised drugs as a defence is certainly something that could be done in the setting. Would be a bit of a weak weapon however. Aside from many sophonts being naturally immune (like vecs, neogens or heavy tweak clades) bionts in the setting are typically augmented with personal medical systems. Implants in their respiratory, circulatory and cerebral systems could filter out any harmful or unwanted intoxicants before they had an effect.

Tangentally when sophonts want to get high in OA they could consume drugs and set their medisystem to allow intoxication or they could run drugs programs through their DNIs and feel whatever they want whenever they want, at a touch of a neural button!

I have an article on my list to add to the site that features this.
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
