The Noronut tree is found in wide regions of the Tirakan south. It is found in Yadosia, Gasdaria, Toran and Yavon. Asgoran does a brisk trade in the ground nuts, but there is an import ban on them in Meridian.
The reason for the import ban is the extremely invigorating effect of the nut, which is particularly effective in ground form. After eating the nut, a character's quickness and deftness increase by 1D6 points for 4 hours. The price for this increase is a rapid loss of fluid, which leads to total exhaustion after the effect time has expired (minus 1D6 points on Quickness and Deftness for 4 hours). This malus can only be avoided (even reversed) by taking the nut again if another application is consumed.
The noronut is addictive the first time it is used - the consumer will not miss any obvious opportunity to get hold of the nut. Once in possession of the nut, the desire to taste it may come over him at any time.
