Etheric Effects

Some effects alter the way that you see and interact with the world.

In particular:

  • Certain encounters are unlocked while under the effects of Eclipse (marked with an Eclipse.jpg icon)
  • Certain encounter don't show up while under the effects of Eclipse (marked with an coffee.jpg icon)
  • Some of the Etheric Techniques are powered or enhanced by use of Eclipse.

On the wiki, there are many things marked "while Etheric". Unless otherwise specified, this means that any of the following effects work, not just vanilla Etheric.

Gaining Side Effects

When you gain a bunch of energy of Etheric (or other Sight effect) at once, you can sometimes get different results depending on your equipment, skills, etc. This seems to happen from both drugs (eg. Eclipse) and encounter sources (eg. The Stash).
