Green goo is a harmful liquid that is commonly found within the depths of Golgotha. Something covered in green goo has the prefix gooey. It adds self-poisoning based effects to cooked meals.

Becoming prone in green goo will cause the creature to make a toughness save of difficulty 30. If this fails, they will be inflicted with poison that causes the creature to take ♥1d2+23-4 (Avg: 3.5) a turn for a duration of (1d2+2)d2 turns.


At 110°, green goo will evaporate into poison gas.
