Blood And Chocolate Book [UPD] Download
This is how adventure module books should be made. Playable as you read it and the adventure makes it so the system only matters if you want to go Rambo on everyone. While it's great as a stand alone game, it can also be introduced into a larger campaign, via the chocolate being available in stores as cheap rations.

Respiratory secretions and cerebrospinal fluid must be cultured on chocolate agar. Blood cultures are positive in meningitis. Capsular antigen may be detected in cerebrospinal fluid for early identification if Gram stain is unsuccessful. Haemophilus ducreyi grows on Mueller-Hinton agar with 5 percent sheep blood in a CO2 enriched atmosphere.
Haemophilus species are Gram-negative coccobacilli that share common ultrastructural features with other Gram-negative bacilli. Their cell walls contain lipooligosaccharide, which resembles the lipopolysaccharide of Gram-negative bacilli but has shorter side chains (hence the designation oligosaccharide rather than polysaccharide). Haemophilus species have generally been thought not to make toxins or other extracellular products that account for their ability to produce infection. These organisms require hemin (factor X) and/or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) (factor V) for growth. Whereas NAD+ is released into the medium by red blood cells and is available to the bacteria in blood agar, hemin is bound to red blood cells and is not released into the medium unless the cells are broken up, as in chocolate agar. Haemophilus influenzae requires both factors X and V; accordingly, it grows on chocolate agar but not on blood agar (Fig. 30-2), although it may appear on a blood agar plate as tiny satellite colonies around the colonies of other bacteria that have lysed red blood cells. Haemophilus parainfluenzae requires only factor V and therefore is able to grow on blood agar (however, recent reports suggest that many isolates identified as H parainfluenzae actually are H paraphrophilus). The long-prevailing notion that H ducreyi grows only in clotted rabbit blood has been dispelled by recent studies that show slow growth of this organism in Mueller-Hinton agar containing 5 percent sheep blood. All Haemophilus species grow more readily in an atmosphere enriched with CO2; H ducreyi and some nontypable H influenzae strains will not form visible colonies on culture plates unless grown in CO2-enriched atmosphere.
Gematogen is still sold today, but some companies use a powdered blood product with no ruddy or otherwise bloody qualities. Others coat it in chocolate. One unknowing taster described her first Gematogen bar as \"a red-tinged soft Tootsie roll\" with a \"strong molasses base\" and a \"strange note of metal on top.\" After discovering the bar's most noteworthy ingredient? Suddenly, she said, \"it all made sense.\" 350c69d7ab
