|Volatile Fulgurium Fuel Rod|
A Fulgurium fuel rod that has been further refined to supply power for much longer than normal. However, its radiation shielding can only partially limit the emitted ambient radiation, so the rod must be handled with care.

Function & Usage
Volatile Fulgurium Fuel Rods can be used in a Nuclear Reactor to provide power, or as ammunition for the Rapid Fissile Accelerator. The condition of the fuel rod drains as it is used, and when it reaches 0% it no longer produces power. Empty fuel rods can be refilled with more Fulgurium, or recycled into Depleted Fuel. Volatile Fulgurium Fuel Rods are significantly more long-lasting than any other fuel rods, however this is offset by the danger that handling them presents; unlike other fuel rods, Volatile Fulgurium Fuel Rods will constantly inflict 1 Radiation Sickness per second to characters within 1.25 meters. Wearing a PUCS is the ideal solution when handling them, as it grants 90% resistance to Radiation Sickness. Other radiation protective gear include the various types of Diving Suits and the Hazmat Suit.

- All fuel rods were initially intended to cause minor radiation sickness while being handled, however this feature is unimplemented due to bugs. The Volatile Fulgurium Fuel Rod lacks this behavior, due to its much more intense effects.
