In-game description "You sport gills."
Message when acquired "You grow gills!"
Message when removed "Your gills disappear."
Attribute changes -3 Appearance
Other effects Grants intrinsic water breathing

Gills is one of the 35 possible corruptions that can be inflicted on the PC. In exchange for a few points of Appearance it grants the PC the water breathing intrinsic, thus allowing him/her to travel across rivers and even underwater without injury.


Like sulfur breath, gills are definitely a very desirable corruption with only a minor downside. Water breathing is a quite difficult intrinsic to obtain, and it allows the PC to cross any river and even the Water Dragon Cave without taking any damage.
