Talk:Sea Slime (5e Creature)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

I am planning on employing the Sea Slime. I have a few suggestions based on how I intend to use it. It would in general be useful for all creature creations to give them a Healing rate. Since I plan on throwing this at a party not quite at a level to deal with it without considerable luck, they may have to retreat and come back at it at a later time. My use plans on the creature healing at a rate of 1hp/hr so long as it has a food source.

Because of the environment in which they are encountering it, and they are in a situation which requires they prove success of their actions I am having the slime lose cohesion upon death, so its body simply dissolves away into the water in which it is dwelling.

Also, because this adventure may be used as part of an ongoing campaign, I have been wondering about how the slimes reproduce. Mitosis? Some sort of spores? Eggs? Or should its "death" simply be viewed as dispersing the slime and a number of polyps connect to various food sources and grow back until they become larger threats? Including attaching to anyone who is in the water with it when it dies, causing an infection which requires Lesser Restoration, Remove Disease, or application of fire to remove. If not removed they will develop a rash which turns into a flesh eating infection and a severe burning sensation.

You could use the short rest and long rest rules for recovery. As for your other question, I envision most ooze-type creatures reproducing by division, but if it's your campaign, you can make them do whatever you want them to do. SirSprinkles (talk) 05:00, 17 April 2019 (MDT)
