Alphanella Seeds

A highly addictive hallucinogen, Alphanella seeds are used by many artists throughout the galaxy – notably the painter Poor Yorick – to help fuel their inspiration. Strangely, despite the popularity of the seeds, little is known of the Alphanella plant, although it is presumably either quick-growing, adaptable to wide range of climes, or both.

The seeds themselves are small and brown, but each of them is quite potent, although the effects tend to wear off quickly. The effects include enhanced senses and cognition, and an unchained imagination. But long term use tends to debilitate the user, leaving them unable to think or talk straight when they are not on the drug.

Higher doses can induce trance-like states that last for several hours, sometimes even days.
