SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Shapechanger. The copyblob can use its action to polymorph into an object or back into its true, amorphous form. Its statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. It reverts to its true form if it dies.
  • Adhesive (Object Form Only). The copyblob can choose to adhere to anything that touches it. A Large or smaller creature adhered to the copyblob is also grappled by it (escape DC 12). Ability checks made to escape this grapple have disadvantage.
  • False Appearance (Object Form Only). While the copyblob remains motionless, it is indistinguishable from an ordinary object.
  • Grappler. The copyblob has advantage on attack rolls against any creature grappled by it.
  • Passionate Artisan. The copyblob is proficient with one type of artisan’s tools of its choice. It can use its Shapechanger trait to turn into a usable set of these artisan’s tools. The copyblob can work together with friendly creatures who are also proficient in the same type of artisan’s tools, granting them advantage on any ability check associated with using these artisan’s tools.

ACTIONS

  • Pseudopod. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) bludgeoning damage. If the copyblob is in object form, the target is subjected to its Adhesive trait.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) acid damage.

ABOUT

Copyblobs are intelligent shapeshifters with the ability to take on the form of inanimate objects. Though they are also known as “smart mimics”, copyblobs are only distantly related to their more predatory cousins. However, they are often mistaken for mimics and attacked on sight by overeager adventurers. For that reason, many copyblobs are elusive, preferring to hide and socialize only with other copyblobs and the occasional friendly monster.

Yet, a few copyblobs are either too bold or too curious to remain hidden. These more adventurous copyblobs seek out open-minded people to chat with, exchange gossip, and sometimes discuss the overly specific interests some copyblobs might develop over the years. A copyblob that feels safe among friends will often be very chatty and strive to be helpful, taking on the form of useful objects for its friends.

Staying in one shape for too long can be boring, so copyblobs explore many different shapes and activities throughout their lives. When a copyblob finds a craft it is passionate about, it strives to learn all it can about it and becomes a copyblob artisan, a true master of its craft.

Copyblob artisans can take the shape of and function as the artisan’s tools they are experts in, allowing them to practice their craft anytime and anywhere. Their social nature makes most copyblob artisans eager to meet and work with other experts in their field, and they love nothing more than talking about their craft and collaborating with other artisans on wonderful creations.

Pact of the Chain Familiar. At the gamemaster’s discretion, a warlock with a pact of the chain may choose the form of a copyblob artisan for their familiar.
