Shredder Particles are loosely bound clusters of free electrons and positrons bound together by webs of electromagnetic energy and mutual repulsion. They have a devastating effect on ionic bonded metallic substances, causing the bonds that hold these substances together to fail and disintegrate into their component atoms.
Shredder Particles are a type of Exotic Particle - an Exotic Substance related to Etheric Science. A physrep of some kind of energy containment device can be used to represent up to 10 measures of this substance, but particularly large physreps can hold more.
A measure of Shredder Particles can be applied to any Weapon that can hold Charges. Applying a measure of this substance to such a device will temporary allow it to spend its Charges to strike for the REND call. If you are carrying a weapon enhanced by this substance, you may spend 2 Charges to strike for a single REND call.
As with all Exotic Substances, a character with at least 1 rank in the relevant speciality (Etheric Science in this case) can spend 1 minute of appropriate roleplaying to apply 1 measure of Shredder Particles to an item. After this roleplaying, they should unpeel the sticker that represents this substance, stick it to the lammie of the item being powered-up, and record the current date and time on it.
The boost provided by this substance wears off 2 hours after the time recorded on the sticker.
