- The quicksilver camera requires a mana-sensitive film plate (p. 214, Street Grimoire) for each use. Standard rules for the quicksilver camera apply, with the following changes: development time takes five minutes instead of two, and the threshold for tests made with developed images are increased by 1.

A rare entry from the secretive Telestrian Industries, the
Shamus is basically a forensic analysis laboratory rolled
into one compact drone. The drone’s design appears to
be partly canine, partly arachnid. Four legs with multiple
joints support the body, while a cluster of sensors
in front suggest compound eyes below a more conventional
head. The sensor suite built into the Shamus is
extremely impressive, boasting a full range of visual
sensors, X-ray scanners, ultrasound sensors, and even
a biomatter sampler for checking biological samples.
Additionally, the Shamus is capable of projecting a trideo
display into open space, connecting to an investigator’s
PAN to easily allow the investigator to re-create
a crime scene in real time.
However, the feature that sets the Shamus apart
from all other drones in this space is the quicksilver camera.
Normally a quicksilver camera requires a magician
to operate, but the Shamus has been outfitted with a
unique (and proprietary) blend of reagents that can operate
the camera in lieu of a magician. Mana plates are
still required for operation, and they are available for purchase
through Telestrian Industries-affiliated vendors.
