Special Traits

  • Amorphous. The pudding can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide without squeezing.
  • Reactive Regeneration. When the pudding is exposed to piercing or slashing damage, it regains 6 hit points.
  • Spider Climb. The pudding can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down and ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.
  • Tumorous Form. Any creature who touches the pudding or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or contract a tumorous disease which manifests immediately. The diseased creature suffers disadvantage on Charisma checks and –2 on attack rolls, and its hit point maximum is reduced by 10 for every 24 hours that elapse. Magic such as a lesser restoration spell cures the disease. If the disease reduces the target’s hit point maximum to 0, the target dies and reanimates in 2 (1d4) hours as a flesh pudding.

Actions

  • Pseudopod. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a creature, it must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, the creature is afflicted with a tumorous disease. The diseased target suffers disadvantage on Charisma checks and –2 on attack rolls, and its hit point maximum is reduced by 10 for every 24 hours that elapse. Magic such as a lesser restoration spell will cure the disease. If the disease reduces the target’s hit point maximum to 0, the target dies and reanimates in 2 (1d4) hours as a flesh pudding.
  • Devour Corpse. The pudding consumes the dead body of a creature at least Small in size. It gains a cumulative +1 to attack and damage rolls for 1 minute and regains 12 hit points. Any points beyond its hit point maximum are treated as temporary hit points.
