Special features

You can "jump into spring". This does some damage (a few hundred hitpoints) and causes you to be wrapped in a blanket of lard:

She appears to be wrapped in a blanket made of lard.

This appears to be the same effect as Granny Lipintense's Layer of Lard, as it shows up in shields.

Also, while in the spring, this will be added to your description line:

He is up to the neck in molten fat.

If you stay in the spring for too long (half a minute seems to be too long), you will be further burned and will die:

You stand up.
Your skin is burning from the boiling fat.
Hp: 123 (500) Gp: 50 (50) Xp: 7316
 Damage: 225 
The heat and pain of the boiling fat are too great.  Finally you expire and are deep fried by the fat.
Hp: 0 (500) Gp: 50 (50) Xp: 7319
 Damage: 123 
The greasy aura vanishes with a wet sound.
Someone says: MY, WE'VE BEEN A BIT CARELESS, HAVEN'T WE?  SHALL WE POPPADOM TO THE NEXT DIMENSION?

It appears that if you lose all your health from jumping into the springs, you will still burn.

You will need to "leave spring" before you can leave the room.
