I'm on day 3 of the Die2nite beta, and I noticed that a "Betapropin tablet 5mg" has appeared in my inventory as a professional tool. The mouse-over description in the "Use an object from my rucksack" section states "this small tablet has a somewhat surprising effect..."

What does this tablet do? I'm guessing since it's a drug, it will refill my AP. What is the "surprising effect"? Does it being a professional tool make it special in any way?

The being a professional tool means you can't drop it. –  user56 Nov 19 '10 at 22:59

It was a one-time item given out by the developers to beta testers. Using it sets your AP to 30/6. It doesn't count as a drug for the purposes of the "Clean" status (i.e. you're still clean after using it).

It's marked a "Professional tool" and therefore can't be dropped. If a person carrying one does manage to drop it somehow (i.e. by dying) it can't be picked up again by anyone else.

You get 30 AP as opposed to the usual 6. Use it wisely.

Apparently there's a side-effect from using it; I haven't seen what that is yet.

The side-effect can be becoming addicted, drugged, terrified, or any combination of the three. –  user56 Nov 19 '10 at 22:59
    
So does this mean I will end up with 30/6 AP, or is my AP still capped by my maximum? Does the object persist? Will I get a new one if I die and start in a new town? –  sjohnston Nov 19 '10 at 23:04
    
You'll be raised to 30/6, but you'll lose the AP on the days reset, and if you're not at 0, you'll waste a few AP. –  LessPop_MoreFizz Nov 19 '10 at 23:21
    
I've never seen or heard of any side effects from using the drug. Has anyone actually seen this happen? –  Brant Nov 19 '10 at 23:45
