Slime Glands is a physical mutation which allows a creature to spit Slime.pngslime into a targeted 3x3 area. For each of the cells in that area, there is an 80% chance of creating a pool of 500 drams of slime. This mutation also grants Slimewalking.[1]

Slime Glands costs one mutation point at character creation and, like all 1-point mutations, cannot be leveled-up.

Ability Cooldown

Slime Glands' cooldown (CD) in rounds depends on the user's willpower (WI) attribute:

Advantages & Disadvantages

This section is opinion-based. Your mileage may vary.

Advantages

  • Very low mutation point cost
  • Can be used to hinder enemy movement by filling tight corridors with slippery  slime.
  • Allows you to walk over slime without slipping.
  • Can dilute dangerous liquids with slime, making it slightly safer to wade or swim through.
  • Always have slime available, which can be used to extinguish fire or create  gel.

Disadvantages

  • Creatures slip in a random direction, meaning that a pool of slime may actually move them closer to the player.
  • Some creatures, such as those found in slime biomes, are immune to slipping on slime.
  • Very easy to mix pools of valuable liquids, such as  water or  cloning draught, with slime.
