Slotin instructed one of his colleagues to lay radioactivity-detecting film badges around the area, which required the scientist to go dangerously close to the still overheated core. The witnesses to the demonstration were taken to the Los Alamos hospital. Slotin vomited once prior to being examined, and several times more in the next few hours, but stopped by the next morning.
His general health seemed acceptable. But his left hand, initially numb and tingling, became increasingly painful. This was the hand that had been closest to the core, and scientists later estimated that it had received more than fifteen thousand rem of low-energy X rays. Five hundred rem is usually fatal for humans.
The hand eventually took on a waxy blue appearance and developed large blisters. His right hand, which had been holding the screwdriver, suffered lesser versions of these symptoms. They arrived four days after the accident. His temperature and pulse began to fluctuate. Slotin suffered nausea and abdominal pain and began losing weight. Eventually, he sank into a coma. He died nine days after the accident, at the age of thirty-five. The cause was recorded as acute radiation syndrome, also known as radiation sickness. His body was shipped to Winnipeg for burial in a sealed Army casket.
Slotin, at left, stands with his colleague Herb Lehr beside the first nuclear bomb, here only partially assembled. Slotin was one of only two people to die from radiation exposure at Los Alamos while the laboratory was under military control. In those early years, from to , there were about two dozen other deaths—truck and tractor accidents, inadvertent weapons discharges, a suicide, a drowning, a fall from a horse.
Four of the fatalities were just bad luck, involving a group of janitors who shared muscatel wine that was laced with antifreeze. Ellen Lander Yeoman. Travis Lee. Space, In Chains. Laura Kasischke. The Darkness Within. Jessica Major. Anomalies and Aberrations.

Melf's Acid Arrow, acid arrows and other such things should help blackblood club could come in handy if you can hit it -- Tensor's Transformation.
Give yourself all the buffs and be sure you are hasted so it never gets near you. If you go the lower resistance route you should have quite a few spells that will damage it I happen to like skull traps. Ring of the Ram should cause it damage you did pickpocket the first one from Tolgeras in the Government Building when you first got this quest like a good little thief didn't you?

Elfen Lied , Apr 3, Interesting, thanks guys. Unfortunately I do not have access to Tensor's Transformations, but I do have a crap-load of acid arrows, melf's acid arrow, and a wand of monster summoning, so I'll just try acid hit and run with summons keeping him busy.

They are not the most difficult boss around, that is sure. You need good defense nevertheless or they will shred you into pieces.
