and slime compound that's not
fit for swimming, let alone drinking."
The Slime Sea is the expanse of slimy water that covers the entirety of the Far, Far Range. Falling into the slime sea results in an instant knockout, and due to the jetpack's limited use, it acts as the world's physical barrier.
Slime Sea water cannot be vacced for use in the Vacpack.
The Slime Sea that covers most of the Far, Far Range is something of a mystery. It is seemingly a mixture of water and slime that is believed to be the primordial pool where all slimes emerged, though its true purpose is entirely unknown by even the most esteemed slime scientists.
What is known is that the liquid found within the Slime Sea is not fit for drinking, watering crops, or even swimming, as most things seem to quickly sink to the bottom. When a slime enters the Slime Sea it quickly vanishes but it is widely believed that this far from ends the slime's existence, for slimes that enter the sea can often be seen quickly returning back on land, happy as ever. In fact, many slime scientists believe that slimes use the sea as a means of transportation, moving swiftly below the surface and popping out on land wherever they see fit.
But all theories aside, one fact remains very clear, most especially to ranchers: don't enter the Slime Sea!
- The Glass Desert is the only zone not located in the slime sea. Instead, it is surrounded by a sea of golden sand, referred to by Hobson in one of his notes as the "sand sea". However, it is functionally identical.
- Despite the slime sea covering much of the world, areas with no defined biome are instead classified under the Unknown biome. The only areas marked as The Slime Sea are the bridge connecting The Dry Reef to The Moss Blanket, the islands which lead to Moustache Island, and the rocky outcrops behind The Grotto leading back into The Dry Reef where the Night Light can be found.
