Shmowder is a type of cure in Pathologic 2. It can completely cure the Sand Plague from the player or an infected NPC. If used on the player, it can have a dramatic affect on their total health but cannot cause death.

Shmowders can be obtained through trading with Teensy, trading at the Dead Item Shop, collecting them from children's caches, during a game of hide and seek on Day 2, or trading a Leash with a Doghead in the Nutshell from Day 4 on. The game of hide and seek and trading the leash are the only guaranteed sources of Shmowders. All other sources are chance spawns.

A box filled with a yellowish powder. Guess it's for some kind of game. The box seems to be filled with powder made of assorted ground pills. A box filled with powder made of assorted ground pills. Extremely harmful to one's health... yet somehow cures the sand pest completely.

Before the Plague:
Smells like medicine. A dangerous idea for a game. Destroying this would be the responsible thing to do. Powders, or "shmowders," as the kids call them, can sometimes cure any disease. Or at least they used to. Khan, the children's leader who now rules the Polyhedron, claims that all the real "shmowders" were used up long before the epidemic.

After the Plague:
A ridiculous mixture of random pills cures sand pest. Maybe it's because the plague itself is a combination of many diseases? It attacks every organ, every Layer, and changes every day.

Notes

  • Shmowders take up 1x1 inventory space and stack up to 5 times.
  • Though Shmowders are considered very dangerous and possibly deadly, use on a NPC will have no drastic effects, and will cure them of the Plague.
  • When trading with a Teensy, Shmowders are valued at 35, other than during the hide and seek game during act two, where one of the players will value it at 5. The Fellow Traveller values Shmowders at 40.

This "shmowder" is very old, made ten years ago, or even more. Which is impossible, since the First Outbreak only happened five years ago. Item is not present in The Marble Nest. Item is not present in the Alpha.

Acquirement

In order to find the Old Shmowder, the player must have a Kickstarter backer code for the event. Once entered and using a new save file, the player will find a Note in the cabinet in the Haruspex's Lair directing them to the Warehouses. They will find several children who say they wish to capture an elusive cat. In order to do so, they need some Milk.

After pouring some Milk into a bowl, the children thank the Haruspex and offer him the Old Shmowder.

Shmowder is a type of cure in Pathologic. It can completely cure the Sand Plague from the player or an infected NPC.

When used by the player, the Plague will be completely cured and health will be reduced down to only 5 points. If health was less than 5 when the Shmowder was taken, it will not change.

Quote

A mix of randomly chosen drugs (mostly antibiotics). Those "shmowders" were created by children to "play Plague." The random recipe produced an unexpected result—the powder completely removes the effects of Sand Plague infection, but severely damages health.
