Description Your eyes have taken on some of the red metal's sheen. Some would think it's merely disturbing or write it off as designer cybereyes, but you know the change is deeper than a bit of cosmetic surgery.

They've shown you a bit of the pattern behind things… the gentle touch of fire, the harsh breath of toxins in the air. You can probably use that knowledge to save your own hide. But you feel, or rather you know, you can build something grander.

Chemistry Feeling inspired, you assemble some leftover chemicals into a nasty little brew.

Electronics There's enough left over here for a nasty surprise for the next fool to cross your path. gain the Jacob's Ladder technique
Sushi As you prepare the sushi, you notice tiny droplets of silver liquid leaking where you cut. Intrigued, you bottle some up for later. gain a metallic oil (Kinak says NO hard cap per day, but it isn't totally random)
