Special Traits

  • Amorphous. The pudding can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide without squeezing.
  • Petrifying Form. A creature that touches the pudding or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it must make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, the creature magically begins to turn to stone and is restrained. If it used a nonmagical weapon made of wood or other organic material to hit the pudding, that weapon turns to stone. The creature must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn. On a success, the effect ends. On a failure, the creature is petrified until freed by the greater restoration spell or other magic. Nonmagical ammunition made of wood or other organic material that hits the pudding is turned to stone after dealing damage. Nonmagical ammunition made of stone that hits the pudding is destroyed after dealing damage.
  • Corrosive Form. The pudding can eat through 2-inch thick, nonmagical stone, including petrified creatures, in 1 round.
  • Spider Climb. The pudding can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down and ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.

Actions

  • Pseudopod. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a creature, it must make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, the creature magically begins to turn to stone and is restrained. If it is wearing armor made of leather or other organic material when hit by the pudding, that armor is turned to stone. The creature must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn. On a success, the effect ends. On a failure, the creature is petrified until freed by the greater restoration spell or other magic.
  • Eat Stone. The pudding touches an object or creature made of stone and digests up to 2 inches of material over a one-foot square surface. The pudding recovers 5 (1d10) hit points.

Reactions

  • Split. When a pudding that is Medium or larger is exposed to lightning 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 pudding’s, rounded down. New puddings are one size smaller than the original pudding.
