Page 1: Observations[]

'Should I chance to gaze upon but one more of these foul, fetid, green-slime-coated atrocities, I shall surely lose what wit remaineth to me,' wrote the naturalist Merlose after encountering this vile strain of Flan. Their bodies absorb light which they then emit to lure prey in the gloom of caverns. They are also able to release light in a dazzling flash, temporarily blinding foes. With their giant mouths, they swallow prey whole, using the nutrients from their food to divide and multiply, creating ever more flan-kin to terrorize and disgust.

A pure extract of oil from the creature known as the slime has been garnering the attention of natural philosophers. This slime oil has been found to have wondrous properties when used as a base or reagent in the making of medicines and various tinctures. Though the specific means of its use are closely guarded, it is clear that the special attributes of slime oil make it better than oil from other sources. We can but hope that our chefs do not discover it to well-suited to cookery!


The game's bestiary hints that Slime Oil is obtainable from this enemy, however, this is not possible, and Slime Oil can only be obtained either by stealing it from Orthros, or by winning the Balfonheim race's 90th level. The Zodiac versions added more ways to obtain the loot.
