asphalt

asphalt is a sticky liquid that is common in the Ovw asphalt mines.pngAsphalt Mines and in tarry biomes. Items that are covered in asphalt or contain it are tarry or tarred. When cooked, it grants effects related to forced movement. Walking on asphalt causes a creature to make a strength and agility save of difficulty 24 or a diminishing return based on the total volume of the asphalt. A failed save causes the creature to become stuck for a maximum of 12 turns with a strength difficulty save of 10* Drams/100 every turn to break free. It weighs 0.5 lbs per dram.

Unlike most other liquids, it is a hot liquid. Pouring it on something will not decrease its temperature. Drinking it will increase the imbiber's temperature by 500, and will deal ♥1d61-6 (Avg: 3.5) damage and ♥1d61-6 (Avg: 3.5) more for every 10% of the mixture that is asphalt. For example, 1 dram of pure asphalt will deal ♥11d611-66 (Avg: 38.5) , 50% asphalt will be ♥6d66-36 (Avg: 21) (temperature is unaffected). There is no damage taken if poured on something, although a creature covered in asphalt may become stuck.
