Default Re: Would catnip affect catfolk?

So, if catfolk have catnip, what other species have a species-specific intoxicant they might indulge in?

Dwaves, naturally, would have their ale. Orcs I think have a whiskey variant that's pretty awful for non-orcs but they definitely like it. Elves I think are mead, or wine, but whatever it is it's suuuuper fancy.

Gnomes? Probably huffing straight benzene.
Halfling is easy, "pipe-weed" whatever that stuff is.
Coleopterans would be... probably a plant pollen? They're giant beetles, and ordinary earth-beetles probably aren't equipped with the biology to enjoy intoxicants. They spend a lot of time underground, so may a root-based intoxicant or a mineral based one. Maybe the get high off of powdered agate or something.

Fantasy version of MKUltra

In non combat time the classic is leave some where they can find and take it. Yhen attack later while they are drunk/drugged.

In my present fantasy game we have moth-folk with Addiction (soft, warm light; incapacitating, legal) [-10]; from GURPS per se.

Mothman: "brb, gonna go light up"
Buddy: "Cigarette?"
Mothman: "Nah, zippo"

Caribou-folk get messed up on insanely deadly mushrooms. There is a black(gold) market on the caribou byproduct that has removed the toxic compounds, leaving enough of the psychotropic drug for other's use.
