acid

acid is a caustic liquid that causes damage upon contact. A composite liquid with acid will be acidic, and objects covered in it will be covered in acid. Because of its properties, only inorganic containers will be able to hold acid safely without dissolving.

Physical contact with acid will cause the object to take Total liquid Volume * Acid drams /16 (min 1) to Total liquid Volume * Acid drams (min 2) acid damage every turn. This includes the container the acid is in if the container is organic like a Waterskin.pngwaterskin. Liquid containers corroded by acid will have sizzling prepended to their name until the container is completely destroyed. If destroyed within an inventory, the acid will pour over the owner, dealing the same damage. Waterskins have a hidden ♥30HP, so acid can be held for a short period of time, depending on volume, for short liquid transfer.

Creatures with full acid resistance will not take damage from stepping on or swimming in acid, but acid still has a chance of destroying the creature's feet and body armor if swimming in an acid pool (greater than 1,000 drams)

Evaporation[edit | edit source]

When heated to a temperature of 350, the acid will evaporate into Corrosive gas.pngcorrosive gas, with a density of the puddle's volume in drams/20. The acid created by Fuming vents.pngfuming vents also evaporates quickly, regardless of temperature. Trying to pour or collect acid that is about to evaporate gives the message "It's fizzy." and the action fails.

Uses of Acid[edit | edit source]

Consuming Acid[edit | edit source]

When consumed without preparation, the imbiber will take ♥10d1010-100 (Avg: 55) acid damage for every dram they consumed.

When cooked, there will be simple Acid-based cooking effects.
