The green blob is a creature belonging to the Science experiments category.
Attacks and techniques
This creature has one attack: Acid bite.
|Damage type||Range||MAPT||IS||LDV||Pain (All ACs)|
- Fire immunity: This creature cannot receive the On fire effect.
- Is a blob: Constructs have no Armor Class, cannot feel pain (no Pain Sensitivity), and have no Blood. Blobs do not usually leave corpses that can be butchered, and in fact do not use the regular limb health system at all. Instead, they possess an HP counter which can be damaged using limb damage. Blobs are considered to be neither Armored or Unarmored, and all limb damage they receive is automatically reduced to 1 (if it was more than 1) per hit, with the exception of Explosion-type damage.
- HP: 30

Certain creatures in the Mazes are the result of past scientific experiments that have, for one reason or another, either gone wrong or been released into the Uncivilized Area, where they proceeded to "go native" and become one of the many species of creatures inhabiting the UA.
Blobs are considered living creatures, but only in the same sense that viruses, amoebae and other simple organisms are living creatures. In the strictest sense, blobs are protists; a category of living creatures that is considered to be neither an animal, plant, or fungus. Specifically, they appear to most closely resemble the category of slime molds.
A singular blob is considered to be a single-celled organism, but exhibits unique and strange properties - namely, an extreme resilience to all but the most violent forms of damage, as well as an outer shell that is completely impervious to fire. They are composed of three parts: a nucleus acting as a central nervous system (the "core" or "brain"), a filling of brightly-colored, usually highly corrosive substance, and an outer layer called the "skin" that can stretch and deform. The underbelly of that skin can open and close microscopic pores at will, leaking a small amount of its own filling for the blob to slide on, conferring the blob the ability to move in any direction (if very slowly), much like a snail.
Because blobs have no definite shape and are essentially viscous masses of material, they will deform and wobble when struck. Sufficiently hard impacts will cause them to "chip" and lose a small bit of themselves. If the blob manages to slide over a chipped bit of itself in time, it will re-absorb that bit and retain its size. The only way to reliably destroy a blob is to either chip it enough times to eventually destroy its core and not allow it to reform, or entirely vaporize it at once, usually through the use of an explosive device.
Green blobs are the first type of blob that were discovered, and is the most commonly encountered. Although not harmless, in large part due to their tendency to "bite" on organic material (by opening a pore and leaking their corrosive filling onto it, then try to absorb that organic material into themselves, dissolving it and presumably absorbing it), they are also very easy to avoid, as they are slow-moving. However, doors are no issue to these creatures: they can simply flatten themselves and seep under doorways. More commonly, they sometimes fall down sinks and toilets, traveling down pipes and across the sewer network. It is believed that this method of travel is the reason green blobs have spread across the entirety of the UA, and why most of the UA sinks, showers and toilets are clogged and unusable even when the piping should otherwise be functional.
If you see a green blob, avoid it if you can, as they are generally not worth the ammunition needed to destroy them. Some use the creatures as target practice with low-powered firearms, however this is not a safe or advisable method of training. Green blobs are only a threat in large numbers, particularly when they move as one group and begin blocking the roads; at which point they frequently attempt to bite travelers and passers-by on the roads. In such a scenario, a well-placed grenade is advisable and cheaper than firing the hundreds of rounds of ammunition needed to gradually chip them down.
