I am trying to understand the economic impact of this proposal. From what I can tell, DiamondNine is suggesting that a character with 'chef / cooking' type skills should be able to use 'drugs' as an 'ingredient' in food.
If the drugs have to be procured ICly, and the 'cook' is not actually making the drugs themselves, what is the issue? How does that differ from a tailor needing to buy materials? Or even a chemist needing to come up with precursors? (I'm totally new here and know nothing about chemistry. If chemists don't need ingredients and can just conjure drugs up out of thin air, then this analogy breaks down.)
I wasn't aware that corp characters can get hooked on KMB foods. That seems like a bit of IC info that should be pulled out of this thread.
From a theme perspective, I think it that cooking with drugs is great. Introducing a mechanic where characters are concerned about eating food from strangers is a good one. Historically speaking, it seems like as long as there have been written accounts of life, there have been tales of enemies drugging each other. Why should Sindome be any different?
