Ochre Acid (Ex)

An ochre jelly’s acid only affects organic flesh – not bone, stone, wood, or other materials.

Split (Ex)

When the ochre jelly is hit by an attack that deals electricity, slashing, or piercing damage while it has 10 or more hit points, the ooze splits into two identical jellies, each with half the original’s HP.

One jelly is in the same space as the original, and the other appears in an adjacent unoccupied space. If no adjacent space is unoccupied, it automatically pushes creatures and objects out of the way to fill the space (the GM can determine if an object or creature is too large to be pushed out of its space).


Environment marshes or underground
Organization solitary

Oozes are mobile forms of protoplasm that live to consume any organic matter in their path. Whenever these slimes sense a living creature nearby, they slither towards the creature, intent on engulfing and devouring it with acidic secretions. They mindlessly attack any organic creatures they encounter, dissolving flesh, bone, and even metal armor before moving on to consume its next meal.

The average ooze measures 25 feet across and 2 feet thick. It weighs about 18,000 pounds (1800 bulk).
