Special Traits

  • Ooze pond. The pond is wide but shallow. Creatures inside the pond can be seen but have total cover. A creature within 5 feet of the pond can take an action to pull a creature or object out of the pond. Doing so requires a successful DC 12 Strength check, and the creature making the attempt takes 18 (4d8) acid damage. The pond can hold only one large creature or up to four medium or smaller creatures inside it at a time.


  • Pseudopond. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (4d8) acid damage. If the target is medium or smaller, it is grappled (escape DC 13) and restrained until the grapple ends.
  • Dunk. The pond dunks the creature grappled by it into its corrosive surface. The creature must succeed on a DC 14 Dexterity saving throw or take 18 (4d8) acid damage and be engulfed. On a successful save, the target takes half the acid damage and isn’t engulfed. The engulfed creature can’t breathe, is restrained, and takes 21 (6d6) acid damage at the start of each of the pond’s turns.


Crystal clear shallow pond, perfectly devoid of all flora and fauna. The surface shimmers in any light and dissolves anything it touches.

Gelatinous ponds lie in wait for their prey, patiently resting in an open field or calm forest for months or even years. Like their cuboid relations, gelatinous ponds dissolve living tissue, leaving only the bones and teeth of their victims.
