OriginEdit

The Chimariko were a Native American tribe in the Northwest of California, extinct since the 1920s. The Chimariko were profoundly affected by the destructive practices of gold seekers during California Gold Rush (during the 1850s). As a fanatically spiritual people, the Shaman of the tribe kept a close watch on the tribes spiritual regalia.

EffectsEdit

The drum used in rituals by the Shaman to induce hallucinogenic ‘Spirit Voyages’ can now perform the same act without the great quantities of drugs usually necessary. The person beating the drum is immune to the drums’ power. Beating the drum faster will also fasten the heart rate of those hearing it. Slowing it down will calm the people hearing the drum. The effect is only temporary though, lasting no more than 2 or 3 hours, after which the people will wake up with ‘a hangover’.
