Are Ghost Possession Mobs Antags?

Figured I would ask this since it seems like admins have a lot of conflict answers. Ghost possession results from wizards using the summon events spell. Ghosts can possess any simple mob and don't get any flavortext when they become it as far as I am aware. I have seen it been used to kill people be...

Re: Giving botany a mutagen dispenser

the problem with botany isnt that they have to beg chemistry for mutagen, its that 90% of the time botany provides nothing of value to the station and chemistry doesn't benefit from tossing them mutagen when they ask for it.

Re: let medborgs inject the new chems

In my current WIP chem changes, Category 2's will be typed as such which will consequently flag on the borg hypo that it will cause side effects.
