Lumen are a mysterious race of creatures found only on The Net. Appearing as misty globes of luminance, very little is known about them. They traverse the net always it seems, with little to distinguish one from the next.

Retributive Burst (Ex)

A Lumen is capable of absorbing damage directed at it. It can absorb 100 points of any damage — physical, force, elemental, etc. When it reaches the threshold, it explodes in a burst of stored energy — this is a 30’ burst that hits all non-lumens in the area for the total damage sustained. If the lumen ever goes five rounds after taking damage without taking any damage, it will burn off any sustained in a quick burst under the same rules.
If the Lumen erupts because of passing the threshold, it breaks up into a glowing cloud as per Gaseous Form for 1d6 + 3 rounds. After the rounds have passed, the Lumen will reform back into it’s original form.
A lumen can only be killed by damaging it while it the gaseous form. It has 5 HP per HD, in this form.
