Special Traits

  • Amorphous. The pudding can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide without squeezing.
  • Necrotic Form. A creature that touches the pudding or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 4 (1d8) necrotic damage. The pudding regains hit points equal to half the necrotic damage dealt. If damaged, the attacker needs to succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or be inflicted with Violet Corruption (see below).
  • Spider Climb. The pudding can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.
  • Violet Corruption. Purple growths appear on the flesh, spreading from the neck. At the start of the affected creature’s turn, they must succeed on a DC 14 Charisma saving throw or be compelled to bite the nearest ally for 5 (1d10) necrotic damage. A successful save means the creature acts normal but remains infected. The corruption is purged when the violet pudding is destroyed.

Actions

  • Pseudopod. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage plus 18 (4d8) necrotic damage. As well, the target needs to make a Constitution DC 14 saving throw or be inflicted with Violet Corruption.

Reactions

  • Split. When a pudding that is Medium or larger is subjected to psychic or slashing damage, it splits into two new puddings if it has at least 10 hit points. Each new pudding has hit points equal to half the original’s, rounded down. New puddings are one size smaller than the original.

About

An undulating mass of sickly purple phosphorescence, possessed of preternatural cunning and a desire to spread its corruption.

The pudding’s touch draws the life force from its victims and it shares a dim consciousness across its varied forms, from spore to ooze.
