Blood oozes are tiny, wormlike creatures, roughly 1 inch in length. They are fat to the point of looking as if they will explode, and they are segmented like maggots but colored a distinct dark red. On either end of the worm are small teeth-lined apertures, which they use to bite their victims. They move by sliding and pulling themselves along. Their skin is thin, almost translucent, allowing one to see shadows of veins within the creature. They are soft and smash very easily. When smashed, they explode with a pop, splattering tissue and blood everywhere.

Magical Creations. The blood ooze is a magical creature formed in the laboratories of evil wizards. These creatures exist to cause pain and suffering, serving many an evil lord as a plague upon their victims. The worms reproduce so quickly that any region afflicted with only a few can suddenly find itself swamped with thousands of them. Blood oozes do not need food or water due to their magical nature. They only seek “food” to create more of themselves.

Duplication. If the blood ooze scores a successful hit that does 1 point of damage, the worm releases and moves to bite again. The wound sprouts a second blood worm, replicating the first one almost immediately.

Hordes of the Things. Blood oozes are dangerous creations, for when they strike a victim and cause damage, they instantly replicate, splitting in two. The second blood ooze immediately attacks. In this way a few blood oozes can turn into scores and threaten even the most powerful.
