OriginEdit

Robert Clay Allison (September 2, 1840 – July 3, 1887) was a prime example of a cattle rancher and people rustler, with a nasty penchant for petty violence. The stereotypical unhinged outlaw ready to fire at any provocation. Many (possibly exaggerated) yarns tell of graphic mob lynchings, knife duels with the loser dead in a ditch and up-close shootings.

One popular yarn ends with Allison shooting his dinner host Chunk Colbert dead across the table. Even though he expected some sort of action, Allison still accepted the invitation "Because I didn't want to send a man to hell on an empty stomach." Another tells how he rode his horse buck nude around town save for his gunbelt. The Cimarron, New Mexico gunslinger acted as a sort of devious protector, killing hoodlums and officials alike. The only logical way for such a chaotic man to bow out was being run over by his own wagon while riding it.

EffectsEdit

Increases aggression that prepares the body for confrontation. Stimulates awareness of one’s surroundings and permits for short bursts of strength or coordination greater than normal.

Makes the user overwhelmed by rage and can turn minor annoyances into compelling reasons to murder a man they just met. Violent tendencies with greater desire to inflict pain all grow until the user’s own bullheadedness gets them killed.
