  • Black Ichor. A patch of Black witches’ butter has blindsight for a range of 10 feet, and explodes a black corrosive ichor at a single target if it detects movement. A creature struck by the ichor takes 6 (1d10) acid damage. If they are unarmored they take 7 (1d12) acid damage instead. A creature may try to avoid some of the spray by making a successful DC 10 Dexterity saving throw. If they succeed they take half damage from the attack.


Black witches’ butter are a subterranean jelly fungus.

The fungus lies in wait along a wall or ceiling until it senses prey. Upon sensing movement within 10 feet, the fungus explodes a black corrosive ichor at a single target. It will then slowly move over and consume its prey.

The corrosive ichor dissolves both flesh, leather, and metal. Sages say large and huge specimens of this jelly fungi have been known to exist.
