Tempo is a Bioengineered Awakened Drug (BAD) manufactured from several awakened plants found in the temperate jungles of South America. The drug itself is described as a white powder with a crystalline shimmer. It is commonly applied through adhesive patches, but can also be ingested.
Tempo causes euphoria, an increased sense of empathy, and mild hallucinations. Additionally, many users have claimed that the drug allowed them to perceive astrally, even with no awakened talent.
Tempo is highly addictive, both physically and psychologically. Over time, users will also build up a tolerance to the drug, requiring larger doses with greater frequency to achieve the same “high.”
