Recipes Wiki, the recipe cookbook YOU can contribute to!

A moist-heat cooking method in which ingredients are cooked in water or other liquid heated to approximately 212 degrees F. (the boiling point of water). At the boiling point large bubbles will steadily break the surface of the liquid. The high temperature of boiling can make foods tough and the turbulence of the liquid can cause fragile ingredients to fall apart, so dishes like stews are generally cooked at a simmer, and ingredients like fish and fruit are poached.

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Geyser titans are level 89 Summoning familiars, introduced with the "Summoning 2" update on 31 March 2008. They are part of the Titan group of familiars, and provide a boost for the Ranged skill. Geyser titans are also able to recharge all Amulets of glory in a player's inventory (and equipped) with one click.

Geyser titan pouch

Geyser titan pouch is made by using a Summoning pouch on a Summoning obelisk with 222 spirit shards, a Blue charm and a water talisman in the inventory. Making the pouch earns 783.2 experience points. Using the pouch to summon a Geyser titan gains 8.9 experience points.

Geyser titans may be commonly found in Castle wars and other mini-games, possibly because of their high combat level and their useful scroll, which actually hits higher based on the defence bonuses of the opponent's armour.

Boil scroll

Boil scroll enables the use of the Boil special move for a Geyser titan. Using the pouch on a Summoning obelisk creates 10 scrolls.

Trivia

  • If a player has five or more Sharks in their inventory, the Geyser Titan will dispense random but true facts about sharks. They can be read on the dialogue page.
  • Some players suspect the Geyser Titan contains water from the Hero's guild fountain, because they can both recharge an Amulet of Glory.

Boil was the nickname of a clone trooper who served in the 212th Attack Battalion of the Grand Army of the Republic and was a member of Ghost Company. Around 22 BBY, after the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Boil was among the troops dispatched to liberate the Twi'lek homeworld of Ryloth from the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Led by High Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Clone Commander CC-2224, Ghost Company was assigned to destroy the Separatist proton cannons based out of the city of Nabat. After the company reached the city, Boil, along with fellow trooper Waxer, was assigned to scout ahead.

During their recon mission, Boil and Waxer stumbled upon a young Twi'lek girl named Numa. Despite protests from Boil, Waxer decided to take her with them, and the girl led the two clones to the remains of her shattered home. There, the three were attacked by several gutkurr creatures, but escaped through a secret passage shown by Numa. After rendezvousing with the rest of Ghost Company, Boil participated in a raid on the Nabat courtyard, where Separatist battle droids had rounded up the city's inhabitants near the proton cannons. While Ghost Company distracted the droids, Boil, Waxer, and Kenobi went through a secret passage shown by Numa, liberated the Twi'leks, and destroyed the cannons. Later in the war, Boil took part in a battle on the planet Geonosis under the command of General Kenobi. After Kenobi's LAAT/i gunship was shot down by enemy fire while attempting to land on the planet, Boil and Waxer rescued the Jedi General and escorted him to the Republic's position.

Biography

Assault on Ryloth

"If we're here to free the tail-heads, the least they can do is get out of our way."
―Boil — (audio)Listen (file info)

A clone of bounty hunter Jango Fett, the clone trooper nicknamed "Boil" was born on the planet of Kamino and bred to fight in the Grand Army of the Republic.[1] During the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Boil served under Clone Commander CC-2224—nicknamed "Cody"—in the Ghost Company unit of the Grand Army of the Republic's 212th Attack Battalion.[1]

Boil and the rest of Ghost Company head for Nabat.

Circa 22 BBY,[3] Techno Union Foreman Wat Tambor took control of the planet Ryloth and subjugated its Twi'lek inhabitants to an oppressive occupation. In response, the Republic initiated an offensive to liberate the Twi'leks. Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano were able to destroy the Separatist blockade surrounding the planet, allowing the ground invasion forces to land.[4] Alongside High Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi, Commander Cody, and the rest of Ghost Company, Boil boarded the LAAT/i gunship[2] Crumb Bomber,[5] which departed for the city of Nabat.[2]

Aboard the gunship, Kenobi and Cody instructed their men to utilize blasters and EMP grenades only, in order to avoid destroying the Twi'leks' home. At that moment, Separatist proton cannons below attacked the Republic Acclamator I-class assault ships, forcing them to pull back. Aboard one of the transports, Jedi Master Mace Windu contacted Kenobi via a holoprojector and tasked him and Ghost Company with eliminating the cannons so the transports could land. After reaching the planet's surface, Ghost Company took out several B1 battle droids in a bunker on the outskirts of Nabat and entered the city.[2]

Boil receives a hug from Numa.

Kenobi assigned Cody to pick his best men and scout ahead, and Cody chose Boil and two other troopers, Wooley and Waxer. Seeing that Nabat was abandoned, Cody and Wooley went to search the courtyard, while Boil and Waxer were ordered to go south and return to the Republic position by an appointed time. In one of the city's alleys, the clones stumbled upon the young Twi'lek orphan Numa, whom Waxer wanted to take with them. Boil was against such a decision, believing that the girl would only slow them down, and the two started to argue. The two then noticed a Separatist recon droid flying nearby, and they hid in the alley until it left the scene. The droid's appearance prompted Boil to hurry Waxer, but the latter continued to insist on taking Numa with them and ultimately convinced Boil to do so.[2]

Numa initially thought the clones to be droids and bit Boil's finger when he reached to her. To calm the girl and prove to her that they were living beings, Boil and Waxer removed their helmets and gave her a ration bar. After tasting the bar, Numa called the clones "nerra," a Twi'leki word unknown to the two. Boil and Waxer returned to their scouting duties, and Numa followed them. The girl, however, soon ran in the direction of the recon droid, and Waxer chose to follow her there, much to Boil's dismay. Numa led the two clones to her shattered home,[2] and Waxer noticed her tooka doll lying on the floor.[5] After Waxer gave the doll to Numa, she began to cry, and the clones comforted her.[2]

Liberating Nabat

Kenobi: "Waxer. Boil. Come with me."
Boil: "We're with you, sir."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boil, during the attack on the courtyard — (audio)Listen (file info)

Boil then received a transmission from Cody and realized that they were late. He wanted to answer Cody, but Waxer convinced him that the best way to explain their delay would be to reach the Republic position and tell Cody that their comlinks had been jammed. Boil agreed, but before the clones were able to get very far, several gutkurr beasts attacked them, and the troopers were forced to retreat with Numa back into the home. In order to escape the creatures, Numa led the clones into an underground passage, and the three re-emerged near Kenobi, Cody, and the rest of Ghost Company, who had just fought off a number of gutkurrs themselves. Conversing to Numa in Twi'leki, Kenobi discovered that she had the ability to lead them to the Twi'lek prisoners, who had been rounded up at the courtyard and were being used as "living shields" for the proton cannons.[2]

While Cody and the rest of his company created a diversion to distract the droids, Boil went through a secret passage with Kenobi and Waxer to free the hostages, and they were successful in doing so. Kenobi then took control of one of the proton cannons. With help from Boil and Waxer, who loaded the weapon with shells, the Jedi was able to destroy the other cannons.[2] The T-series tactical droid commander TX-20,[5] used his Armored Assault Tank to destroy Kenobi's cannon, however, and blasted the Jedi, Boil, and Waxer aside. Numa, worried for her new friends, ran over to the clones. After they recovered, she ran over to Kenobi. TX-20's tank targeted her and Kenobi, but the now-freed Twi'leks attacked the tactical droid and destroyed him. With the cannons' menacing fire disabled, Mace Windu and the transports were able to land. As the Republic forces prepared to head to the capital city of Lessu to retake it and free the planet, Boil said goodbye to Numa and promised that they would return. Numa then called the clones "nerra" one last time, and Kenobi translated for them: "nerra" meant "brother."[2] Ultimately, the Republic liberated the planet and wiped out all remaining droid forces.[6][7]

Geonosis

"Why do we always get the fun missions?"
"Oh, this isn't the fun part. Getting back to the square is the fun part."
―Waxer and Boil — (audio)Listen (file info)
Boil helps an injured Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Later in the war, a rebellion occurred on the planet Geonosis, where the first battle of the war had taken place. The native Geonosians, led by Archduke Poggle the Lesser, constructed new droid factories and began producing battle droids for the Confederacy. In response, the Republic launched an assault on the planet, hoping to capture Poggle the Lesser and destroy his newly ray shielded factories. The Republic invasion force was divided into three groups, led by Generals Kenobi, Skywalker, and Ki-Adi-Mundi. All three strike teams were to break through the Geonosians' defenses and reach a rendezvous point, where they were to reassemble to attack the shield generator.[8]

Boil, along with Waxer, accompanied the strike force led by Kenobi and Commander Cody. The group set off for the planet aboard LAAT/i gunships and was able to reach the rendezvous point despite heavy flak fire from the Geonosians. After landing, Cody circled his All Terrain Tactical Enforcer tanks into a defensive formation, and the clone troopers engaged the enemy Geonosians. It was soon revealed, however, that during the landing Kenobi's gunship,[8] the Bad Kitty, had been shot down and had crashed five kilometers away from the clones' position.[9]

In order to rescue Kenobi, Cody called Boil and Waxer and ordered them to check the Bad Kitty for survivors. The two troopers made their way through the battlefield to the downed gunship and opened it. Inside the craft, they found the injured Kenobi and clone trooper Trapper, the only survivors of the crash. Provided with covering fire from the Republic's AT-TE walkers, Boil and Waxer escorted the two to Cody's position. Shortly thereafter, Skywalker's and Mundi's troops—along with some BTL-B Y-wing starfighters dispatched by Admiral Wullf Yularen—arrived to assist Kenobi's men and destroyed the shield generator.[8]

Personality and traits

"Don't cry, kid. We'll keep you safe. I…I promise."
―Boil comforts Numa — (audio)Listen (file info)
Boil in his customized armor on Ryloth

During the Battle of Ryloth, Boil displayed a very by-the-book attitude; and when things went against his beliefs, he was easily annoyed and often responded with sarcasm. At first, Boil did not have much compassion for the people of Ryloth, using the derogatory term "tail-heads" when referring to them and looking at their helplessness as a weakness rather than taking pity on them. He was reluctant to help Numa, believing that he and Waxer should be following orders instead of wasting their time looking out for her. As time progressed, however, Boil developed compassion and grew to care for Numa as well. He also tried to keep Waxer alive during the mission on Ryloth. When he and Waxer were late from their scouting mission, Kenobi noted that these unpunctual actions were not like them.[2] Boil also changed the color of his naturally brown eyes[10] to red.[2]

Equipment

On Ryloth, Boil wore clone trooper armor decorated with his unit's orange colors. His helmet was also adorned with an upside-down red triangle and a black symbol.[2] On Geonosis, Boil was clad in Advanced Recon Force trooper gear, also with the 212th's markings. At the time of the latter battle, an image of a green-skinned Twi'lek girl was painted on his helmet.[8] During both battles, Boil utilized a standard DC-15S blaster.[2][8]

Behind the scenes

The character of Boil was created for the 2008 The Clone Wars television series and appeared in two episodes of the series, "Innocents of Ryloth" and "Landing at Point Rain." Like all clones in the show, Boil was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.[5] Boil also appeared in the young readers book The Battle for Ryloth, which features several minor inconsistencies with "Innocents of Ryloth." In the book, both Waxer and Boil initially hesitate to take Numa with them, but ultimately decide to do so and then take her straight to Kenobi.
