Its occupants 
Its other occupant 
What happens when the PCs decide to visit”

Fisk Borg

A roster of oozes with rules for the creature type, an ooze-symbiote character class, and an ooze-centered dungeon
Efficiently presents information in each section
Subtle and relatively traditional but still effective in visually reinforcing the concept; dungeon features clean, efficient layouts and design for easy use by GMs
Class is more powerful and versatile than some other classes, but balanced by the monetary and/or inventory cost of feeding the ooze
