The development of this drug came from the hardships imposed on the people of Boletus by the neighboring city-states Neben-Skerah and Zoethall. In 1698 HE, Boletus chemists came up with a way of feeding an inert drug into worms that would then pass on to the warm-blooded creature. They then got the people of Neben-Skerah and Zoethall hooked on Boletus's special worms; a foodstuff that on the surface goes by the name Lir'frod Meat.
The alchemist who invented this drug called it EQ13-Mycel. It was one of hundreds worked on before coming up with a drug that would make the surrounding people treat Boletus's people as equals and with fairness. Users of this drug gave it a more fitting name, Boletus Chain.
This is the state of the drug when it is being carried by the Gall Worms of Adunamar.
This state is reached when a warm-blooded creatures consumes a portion of the worm. The drug permanents the meat, lasting even if boiled or charred.
Boletus Chain has a high addiction rating. After two successive failed Fortitude (DC17) checks, the imbiber is addicted, needing a fix or suffering withdrawal symptoms.
