How's this for Tranquilizer Dart?
"If a character needs some Instant Sedation
, one of the most common delivery methods is the Tranquilizer Dart
. Simply put, this is a thin, pointed projectile that is shot at, thrown at, blown at, or otherwise flung at the victim from a distance. The sedative is either smeared on the dart or contained in an ampule or capsule attached to the dart. Blowguns and firearms are the most common way of propelling a Tranquilizer Dart.
Like other forms of Instant Sedation, Tranquilizer darts are subject to Artistic License – Medicine
: the same dose will work on everyone, they work exactly as fast as the plot demands, are exactly as effective as the plot demands, the effects last exactly as long as the plot demands, and they generally have little or no aftereffects beyond a slight headache or some residual grogginess. The victim may also either feel nothing, or react as though to an insect bite.
Occasionally the dart will have a non-sedative but related effect, delivering a paralytic or amnesiac drug instead, so the victim is still conscious but either can't move or won't remember what happened.
Compare to Knockout Gas
, a way to get an area effect."
