General Items are non-weapon, non-armour, non-vehicle type stuff. Things that you may use on your travels and adventures.

Apparel and uniforms.

Carrying Capacity and Survival Gear
Equipment for carrying things and field survival.

Medical Equipment
Various kinds of medical equipment, from kits, drugs, and chemicals--including nanotech.

Professional Equipment
Equipment and basic toolkits necessary for certain professions.

Computer Electronics
The coming of the microprocessor in the 1960's heralded the beginning of the Information Age, goaded on by developments in microcomputers, virtual intelligence, holographic memory, fibre optics, artificial intelligence, and carbon nanotube circuitry over the course of several subsequent centuries. In the modern day of the 33rd century, computers are a ubiquitous part of daily life in human society.

Surveillance Equipment
Advancements in computer technology and consumer electronics are mirrored in equipment used for surveillance, whether used by government, private individuals, or criminals.

Amatoxin is a group of at least eight related toxic compounds found in several genera of poisonous mushrooms. They are lethal in even small doses, and the most well-known producers of the toxin are the Amanita mushrooms such as death cap and destroying angel, the Galerina species, and the Lepiota species collectively known as dapperlings. Amatoxin impedes cell metabolism, causing lysis in the cell membranes of the gastrointestinal tract and the liver.

Anthrax is a bacterial infection caused by exposure to Bacillus anthracis spores. While technically a biological disease, Anthrax is not contagious and will not ordinarily pass from person to person. Instead, and especially when used intentionally as a weapon, it is deadly if untreated. The infection can cause skin lesions and ulcers, pneumonia, and gastrointestinal bleeding.

Arsenic is an elemental chemical that has a long history as an acute poison. It interrupts adenosine production in cells, wrecking metabolism and causing organ failure and severe internal haemorrhage. Victims of arsenic poisoning often bleed out from the inside, finally vomiting or urinating blood.

Atropine is a medicinal compound that is used to treat nerve toxin poisoning. It is found naturally in nightshade plants, including mandrakes and deadly nightshade, and often induces sluggishness, drowsiness, and salivation.

A toxin derived from the South American poison dart frogs of Earth, batrachotoxin is extremely lethal even in small doses. It has been used for thousands of years to poison arrow-tips of tribesmen, and acts by arresting cardiovascular and nervous systems, causing paralysis and heart failure.

By contrast, Belladonna is a compound of atropine and other chemicals derived from the deadly nightshade or belladonna plant. In low doses it was once used as an anaesthetic, as a precursor to refined atropine. However, it is more famed for its historical use as a poison. It typically causes muscle weakness and paralysis, as well as delerium and hallucinations.

Botulinum toxin is a potent neurotoxin derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria, and is the primary cause of botulism. When eaten or injected, botulinum is an extremely deadly poison that causes the paralysis of the lungs and respiratory failure.

Chloral hydrate
While having limited use as a sedative and hypnotic drug, chloral hydrate is dangerous and can be easily abused as a hypnotic poison, especially when combined with ethanol to make "knockout drops".

A well-known and potent hypnotic drug, the fumes of chloroform can induce drowsiness and unconsciousness when used in proper doses.

Hemlock has a long history as a deadly poison, when concentrated in drinks or ingested. Coniine is the active compound that makes hemlock so deadly, acting on the central nervous system to impede respiration.

Similar to hemlock in action, curare is an alkaloid toxin extracted from many plants native to the Americas that causes muscle weakness and respiratory failure by slowly paralysing the lungs.

Cyanide, typically in the form of potassium cyanide, is a deadly poison with a long history as a compound in suicide pills. The poison acts by halting cellular respiration, leading to respiratory failure and internal bleeding. An average human would die within two minutes from even a 70 mg dose.

Cyanide gas

Cyanide gas is another deadly form of cyanide, often used in execution chambers.

This is a class of toxins produced by venomous mamba snakes. They act on the central and peripheral nervous systems, causing muscular spasms followed by paralysis, and respiratory failure.

These toxins are naturally found in venomous widow spiders, and while not typically lethal in humans in the wild, they can be extracted and used as potent poisons. Latrotoxin acts on the nervous system, causing a massive release of neurochemicals to cause crippling pain, followed by muscle contractions. In high doses, it can cause the breakdown of red blood cells and severe internal bleeding.

Mercury is an elemental chemical that in high doses can be toxic to humans. Mercury poisoning causes a chronic itching feeling, the discolouration and peeling of skin, and eventually kidney dysfunction or failure. Acute poisoning can cause neurological degeneration.

Mustard gas
Mustard gas is a sulfur-based chemical weapon, a cytotoxin and vescicant that causes severe blistering and bleeding on the skin and in the lungs.

Phosgene gas
This chemical warfare agent is the most well-known and employed "nettle agent", a corrosive pseudo-blistering chemical that causes skin rashes and respiratory irritation.

A highly toxic protein derived from castor oil seeds, ricin in its purified powder form is among the most deadly extract toxins. As little as 2 mg can kill an adult human, though that typically takes a few days and it is notably less toxic that botulinum or tetanus. Unlike most ingested toxins, its frequency is 1 save per day, for 10 days, rather than per minute. This reflects the slow-acting process of this particular poison.

Sarin gas
An extremely powerful nerve toxin, used as a chemical weapon. It is many times more lethal than chlorine, cyanide, mustard, or phosgene gas weapons.

Used practically as a potent pesticide, this alkaloid is derived from the same plant that produces curare. It causes convulsions that eventually prevent the respiratory system from functioning.

Tear gas
A variety of lachrymatory agents exist, including CS gas and pepper spray. They all have the same physiological effects, operating by causing hyperactivity of the tear ducts, along with skin, throat, and eye inflammation and respiratory dysfunction. These effects are temporary, but are severe enough to incapacitate its victims.

A toxic compound found in several species of Earth fish and some other species, particularly pufferfish, the blue-ringed octopus, harlequin toads, roughskin newts, and moon snails. It paralyses the diaphragm, causing respiratory failure and death very swiftly in even small doses.

A number of chemicals exist as immobilisers and sedatives like barbiturates, sometimes antipsychotics like diazepam. These are used widely in medical settings, but also by animal handlers to incapacitate dangerous animals. Such tranquillisers are injected, and sometimes administered by dart guns.

Viper venom
Most kinds of vipers produce a haemotoxic venom, destroying red blood cells and inducing coagulation in blood vessels. Typically, the victims of such snakebites suffer embolisms and die.

VX gas
Easily one of the most powerful nerve agents in use in chemical warfare, VX causes uncontrolled muscle contractions. Much like sarin, it forces the victim's air out of their lungs, leading to respiratory arrest and suffocation.
