A relatively new, dangerous street drug that can range drastically in price, depending on purity. Addicts are easy to spot: their hands tremble with excitement, their speech is exuberant, and most telling of all, their irises become purple-stained and slightly deformed, taking on the shape of a fractal spiral.
Spiralers have incredibly vivid hallucinations while they’re on the drug, and they tend to believe that each such trip is a continuing leg of their spiritual journey. Particularly heavy users disappear. Such disappearances are generally thought to be either because an addict leaves behind their regular life to join a spiritual messiah in a distant compound, or because they die of an overdose in an illegal drug den.
