the_logos will become famous soon enough
There's an article in Wired News today about addictions and such, and talks about Achaea's recent introduction of the hardcore (and extremely detrimentally addictive) drug gleam.

And a disclaimer to stop the inevitable trolling: We're not the first to do addictive substances in muds, by a long shot. (Although I haven't personally seen an implementation that is so punishing when going through what can be an extended - 25 hours of playing time - withdrawl.)

Don't use drugs kids! (unless it is a legal substance like nicotine, of course, which is government sanctioned and government subsidised but kills more people than heroin, cocaine, and rubber poodles combined.)
