Alright, so I'm almost sure this has been discussed before, but a quick, not-in-depth search didn't turn up much. We need SOME kind of messages during drug highs, even just at the very beginning.
Now, my character doesn't use drugs very much, but when she does, I have very little idea of how to roleplay it. Because I have a tendency to @holdback a lot, for IC reasons, I can't see the buffs and penalties the drug gives me, so I have no idea whether my character is high. This is an ISSUE, because I can't roleplay being high if I don't know I'm high. This issue also arises in the Korova Milk Bar, when immies accidentally take HARD DRUGS without knowing at all, and those HARD DRUGS don't affect them at all until they start withdrawing, at which point they're like, What the fuck. All I'm asking for is messages at the start of the high, giving you a rough idea of what's going on ('You suddenly feel super zen, man.' 'You let out a breath as all the pain slips away from you.' 'Oh shit you're tripping balls, are you hallucinating or is this shit real??!!') so that you can actually ROLE-PLAY being on drugs. Also, another message for coming down off the high, and another once it's over, would be really nice. I'm not asking for constant, railroading messages that are the same for everyone, like withdrawals. That would be boring. Instead, I want guidelines so that I can make my high unique, make it my own. Characters shouldn't take drugs for stat boosts, that's not what people take drugs for in real life. They should take them because they wanna get high.
