    A flamethrower Thomson? That would look really strange.... The plasma on the other hand reminds me of futurama :whoop:

    They're made of oil. I think they'd go up if they got a bit too close to fire.

    They could have some sort of transparent skin-iike covering that would make them a bit less flammable, but if you burned that away they would burn to nothingness.

    Maybe they should take more damage if burn?

    I burst into flames WAAAAY too much. So personally extra fire damage won't exactly help :zzz:
    Plus that would be a terrible racial ability....

    not all oil burn as good as ohter oils
    and some dosent burn at all i think
    by the way maybe they are not just oil maybe they have water in them yes i know water and oil is uncompatible but not if a third element like sope or something els that makes water mix vit oil was added

    p.s. humans or any of the races are not very resistant to fire they either :fireball:
    not even robots.they take damges because the cpu and battery gets overheated very fast and they got a lots of other parts in them that can catch fire to

    First off, I love love love the Oscura, they're so cool! <3

    Anyway, when I was exploring the other night and inadvertently took a swim in a pool of oil, an idea for a racial bonus/trait for the Oscura struck me - no slowness debuff from contact with the Oil liquid, maybe even a slight buff from it.

    Man, It's been a while since I last heard of this race.

    Well, compared to something like higher jumps or faster mining, a buff or neutralized oil racial would be very situational.
