The Mind Killer
An illegal substance that began trickling out of the Hive Adna Underhive some eight months ago, Fear has since permeated every level of Hive society, topping even Obscura as the drug of choice for the local citizenry. The drug is a powerful hallucinogenic that induces an hours long fugue state in the user, granting them visions of apparently fantastical worlds, though the motif of a city of spires beneath a blood red sky seems unusually common. Some users also note a strange lurking fear within the dream that they are unable to place, and most simply put it down to the thrill of proscribed substance use. This strange sensation has not curbed the drug’s popularity, and given the vast majority of Hive Adna’s inhabitants have never seen the sky, this is hardly surprising.
So far, no amount of analysis by either Interrogator Crowe or Cyberseer Raziel has conclusively shown what the substance is composed of, though the latter was unwilling to rule out xenos, archeotech or warp influence.
