Absorption is a status effect which pads the health bar with extra hearts.
Absorption adds 2 levels of extra health to the player, displayed as yellow hearts above the normal health bar. If the player takes damage while under this effect, just the "absorption health" decreases; the player starts losing "normal" hearts once it has completely depleted. Absorption health cannot be replenished by natural regeneration or other effects, and vanishes when the effect ends. Negative levels do nothing initially, but give 4 . (-level-1) (that do not vanish) when the effect ends.
