Hungry Ooze

Item

Image ball-of-sludge25.jpg
Description Sadly, toxic waste isn't an uncommon sight in Metroplex. However, this handful seems a little different.

It feels like it has a strange potential, particularly in the way it slowly flows towards other objects. Perhaps it'd do something interesting engulfing them.

For now, though, it's just a blob of toxic waste that constantly bubbles, releasing strange fumes.
Type Offhand
Use See "Feeding" below
Effects +2 Etheric Power
+2 Fire Power

Feeding

When used:

The ooze slowly flows as you watch, as if looking for something. You imagine it's hungry, but it seems intent on ignoring anything you'd consider edible.

"Feed it" link next to drop down list - you can feed it any piece of equipment except for a few exceptions (quest items, unearthly items, and a few more exceptions - see below).

Or, if you don't have anything to feed it:

You don't seem to have anything to feed your ooze.

Feeding something to the ooze:

You feed your <item> to the ooze. It slides over the <item>, dissolving it, before settling into a new shape.

If you feed it an item of the same kind again (eg. feed it another hat when it's a caul) you get the message:

Your ooze doesn't seem to want that.

Feeding it an item worth 0.20 to 0.39 gives:

You feed your <item> to the ooze. It slides over the <item>, dissolving it.

Feeding it an item worth .40 to .59 (massive stone talon or knuckle strands) gives:

You feed your <item> to the ooze. It slides over the <item>, dissolving it.

The ooze burbles wordlessly after digesting your <item>. Depending on your mood, you can easily anthropomorphize it as happiness or an upset stomach.

Feeding it an item worth > .60 (tested up to 1.00) (glimmering HUD, handheld core) stash:

You feed your <item> to the ooze. It slides over the <item>, dissolving it.

The ooze makes a strange vibrato trill, flowing into several unnatural configurations before settling on a new shape. If you didn't know better you might think it's dancing.

All items without a stash value cannot be fed to the ooze.
