Rapture Ray

Weapon (energy pistol), rare

This burnished metal rod fires an inductive ray that triggers the pleasure center of the target’s brain, inducing feelings of extreme euphoria. On a successful hit, the target must succeed at a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw or be incapacitated for 1 round, overcome with waves of pleasure.

A successful critical hit doubles the duration of the effect.

So long as the wielder of the rapture ray takes no offensive actions against the target, he gains a +2 on all Charisma (Animal Handling, Deception, or Persuasion) checks against the target so long as he holds the rapture ray.

If a creature is implanted with a rapture chip that is set to the rapture ray’s signal, the wielder does not have to target that creature, affecting it automatically as long as it is within range. A rapture ray can be synchronized with up to four different rapture chips.

The sensation provided by a rapture ray is psychologically addictive, and a creature that experiences its effects may end up desiring the pleasure of the experience, ignoring all other stimuli and going out of its way to please the owner of the rapture ray in the hopes of being rewarded with further shots from it. Should a creature be affected more than three times by a rapture ray before it completes a short or long rest, it must succeed at a DC 10 Wisdom saving throw to avoid addiction. See the entry for rapture chip for details on addiction.

A rapture ray only works on creatures with developed brains, including beasts with Intelligence greater than 1. It has no effect on mechanical beings like androids or robots, nor on constructs, elementals, oozes, plants, or undead.

Damage 1d6 psychic; weight 2 lbs.; range 20/60; properties reload (10 shots).
