Delta-8 products were created by the Scavs who later formed the Apex, a group of survivors whose goal was to rebuild society after it fell apart due to a virus known as Delta-8. The Apex has become self-sufficient and even trade with other nearby communities. Members of the Apex can be distinguished from normal humans by their cybernetic implants and their red eyes which are a result of prolonged exposure to Delta-8 and can look at more info to learn more.
The origin of DELTA-8 is unknown but there are theories that it was designed as some sort of biochemical weapon or may be part of an antidote for another virus; both ideas seem farfetched however because if this were true then why hasn’t the government come forward with information about it? It has been theorized by some that Delta-8 was just an experimental drug that got out of control which seems more likely than the other theories. If this is true, then there may be a cure for it somewhere in the city.
Most people who were exposed to DELTA-8 died within 24 hours but there are rumors that if you can hold on long enough after becoming infected you will start developing strange abilities and even change physically. There also seem to be two strains of Delta-8, one causes death almost immediately while the other has a much slower effect with symptoms appearing anywhere from a week to a month after being exposed. These symptoms usually include flu-like symptoms followed by insomnia, hallucinations, paranoia, and eventually death. It should be noted however that exposure to delta 8 onlineis not contagious.
There are several different types of abilities that can develop depending on the strain of Delta-8 one was exposed to but all seem to have their limits. Abilities include telekinesis, superhuman strength, regenerative powers, and even mind control. One thing that I have noticed about Delta-8 users, in general, is their strange fascination with fire which may be caused by hallucinations or something else entirely.
I’m tired so I think I will call it a night. These old computers keep crashing on me. They are becoming more common lately which makes me worry that DELTA-8 might still be out there somewhere.
