Jump to: navigation, search

Fluff is a substance found in many places on the Disc. It its pure form, it comes in balls of various sizes and colours, but there are also various other fluffy items.

Gufnorkians can carry balls of fluff or other fluffy items for a ritual bonus. They get a smaller ritual bonus for being in a room with sufficient fluffy items on the floor.

Fluffy things can also be placed on Gufnork's low altar, which (while consuming them) provides some healing and can change your alignment slightly.

It is also the name of the "happy" in game bulletin board 'fluff'.

Balls of fluff

A ball of fluff can be referred to as a "fluff", or a "ball". In the plural, they are "fluffs", "balls", or "fluves".

Sizes and divisibility

They come in the following sizes:

Size Weight Approximate misc.area bonus range to summon with Summon Fluff[1]
tiny 1/9 lb
small 2/9 lb
sizeable 3/9 lb 155 and under
large 4/9 lb 155 - 272
huge 5/9 lb 266 - 409
enormous 6/9 lb 541

Balls larger than 1/9 lb can be cut with a knife, resulting in smaller pieces. Pieces are at least 1/9 lb, so there's a limit to how many pieces you can cut a fluff into. Doing this results in, for example, "a third of a huge ball of coral red fluff", and not a smaller ball.

Balls larger than 1/9 lb can also be eaten, reducing them by one size category (balls that are 1/9 lb can also be eaten--this makes them disappear).

Pieces of fluves, as well as small fluves gotten by eating larger fluves, retain properties such as consecration, wards, and remembered places.


Sources

Performing the Summon Fluff ritual will give you a ball of fluff, the size of which is skill-dependent. Naefela of Gufnork will sometimes perform this ritual when a player enters the room, either giving it to or throwing it at them.

You can also find small fluves by searching the fluff in the Gufnork passage room. They are the same colour and flavour as the fluff the passage room is covered in.


Uses

Fluves can be:

Since fluves created with Summon Fluff come pre-consecrated to your deity, they can also be convenient objects to Remember Place with.
