This article is about the terrain type. For the lawful god in the ice mage pantheon in SLASH'EM, see Air (god).

Air is a terrain type that only appears on the Plane of Air and in the form of bubbles on the Plane of Water. It is extremely hard to move on unless you are levitating or flying, and attempting to move otherwise may cause you to tumble. However, it is still possible to move across air by hurtling due to Newton's Third Law; in other words, by throwing things in the direction opposite of the one you want to move in. Beware, this will freeze you for one turn per square travelled.

The same ASCII glyph ( ) can also represent solid stone.
