You know why I'm here, Slog.

The Cloaca Surprise is a recipe that is taught by Slog of the cloaca.pngSlog of the Cloaca for 50 Mollusk reputation. Slog will not teach this to True Kin. Eating this recipe will cause the player's body to morph into a body similar to Slog's. Their sprite will transform into Slog's, but horizontally flipped and with white as the main tile color.

Currently[1], the recipe has no effect on the Chimera mutation.pngChimera genotype, instead showing the message "your stomach gurgles pleasantly".

Body Slots

A picture of the player character's sprite after consuming the surprise, which is Slog's sprite but horizontally flipped and white.
The player sprite will retain their original tile colors, which is usually bright white with detail colors depending on their calling or caste.

The consumer's original body will be swapped with a predefined body form which will always have these slots:[2]

  • Head
  • Feelers (replaces face)
  • Back
  • Hands
  • Hand (2)
  • Missile Weapon (2)
  • Tail
  • Thrown Weapon
  • Floating Nearby

This means that for the average human player character:

  • Arms will be lost (arms granted by Multiple arms mutation.pngMultiple Arms stay)
  • Feet will be lost (feet granted by Multiple legs mutation.pngMultiple Legs stay)
    • The player can no longer become prone unless they still have feet from Multiple Legs
  • First face slot will be renamed to Feelers (any other faces will remain the same)
  • The mutation Bilge Sphincter will be granted
  • A tail slot will grow with the Lua error in Module:Favilink at line 92: bad argument #1 to 'len' (string expected, got nil). as a melee weapon
    • This part is considered essential, preventing it from being dismembered

Consuming the Surprise


You feel an uncomfortable pressure across the length of your body.

Feelers rip through your scalp and shudder with curiosity.

A bilge hose painted with mucus undulates out of your lower body. It spews the amniotic broth of its birth from its sputtering mouth.

The following gets added into the Journal:

You ate the Cloaca Surprise.

Attempting to eat the surprise again will give the player this message:

Your genome has already undergone this transformation.
