Black Pudding Town Swallower Tactics[edit]

A black pudding town swallower will first try to engulf as many enemies as possible. Then it will melt away the grabbed enemies and slam into ungrabbed enemies.

Black Pudding Town Swallower Lore[edit]

A character knows the following information with a successful nature check.

DC 15: Black puddings of this size are usually summoned by powerful mage.

DC 20: When in a dungeon with immaculate walls, oozes are most likley in the area, waiting to eat. After eating oozes usually go into a torpor.

DC 25: No one understands where oozes come from. Many are natural, yet they can be created by spells and phenomena. Failed attemtps at powerful rituals can also make oozes, yet some of this size are made by evil wizards or necromancers.

Encounter Groups[edit]

Usually, these are used as guardians or as traps. Many tribes of trolls might have one in thier possesion.
