Ooze

I've always considered these both "filler" and "copout" - just some malicious, amorphous blob or jelly, the kind you see in JRPGs, though obviously D&D was first. Still, they're really generic and don't take much thought, you can throw them anywhere, even easier than goblins. Sentient mold or whatever is just a bit on the floomfy side. I know fire is supposed to be good against a good number of these kinds of things, so probably that, though I think normal weapons hurt most of them, so hack and slash like anything else.

Ooze Reviews RPG & Card Board

Oozes are a great way to make a simple pit trap into a horrible campsite story. They all have really poor AC's though so you need about a 1 to miss.

-- A Black Pudding has has over 100 hp though to compensate for its low AC, the elder form having almost 300 hp! Also it has some nasty attacks, if it hits with its slam attack, it can automatically as a free action use improved grab. If it succeeds in grappling it does another slam attack along with acid damage, yikes.

The pudding's acidic touch deals 21 points of damage per round to wooden or metal objects, but the ooze must remain in contact with the object for 1 full round to deal this damage


Also if you attack it with slashing weapons it splits into more Black Puddings.

-- A Gelatinous Cube is a fun monster to toss at a "kick down the door" style low level party. The reward is well worth it, if the party survives. The first few rounds are the most important when fighting these. How the party encounters it and the reactions are huge factors. If you want to be particularly cruel put one at the bottom of a shaft or pit. Likely by the time the PC knows whats going on it is paralyzed inside digestive goo. :-/

-- Gray Oozes are your basic ooze, nothing mutch new here. Detecting it before it attacks makes a big difference though. Roll those spot checks spotters.

-- Ochre Jellys are less scary forms of Black Puddings. Don't attack with your sword unless you plan on fighting more than one at a time.
