Interesting discussion, but I think rule of cool could reasonably trump mere science in a game about magic powers.   :P

Step 7.
Wait until you reach the third step in achieving your character's destiny, getting an extra 3 nudges to all your rolls. Grin wickedly as all your attacks now get 6 free nudges.  >:D

Seriously though, clever idea. I love the poisons listed in the new supplement.

It's mostly just good for boss fights, since you can one shot extras anyway, but it'd be totally worth it for boss fights, especially if the boss has good armour or bloodmaking abilities, or just way more health than can be practically eliminated in a couple of actions. Also, endless swarms of minions. With a high Steel rating you could split your pool between getting auto-beat-catching nudges off the poisoned boss, and then making a free multi-target attack against the minions.

Man, this is making me want to resurrect Ser as a Skaa.
