Monsters: Ooze

Monsters: Ooze

These ones were a pain to stat up. I've had to use at least 6 different books to properly represent the engulfing attack and the ooze senses. But I'm glad to be done with these. Oozes are always fun, but they can be very deadly in GURPS. I've decided to omit their splitting ability, because I cannot come up with a proper way to represent it, aside from Duplication with Uncontrollable Trigger.

Engulf: If the black pudding starts its turn in close combat with prey or can move there on its turn, it tries to engulf its target; no attack roll is necessary and its quarry may defend only by dodging and retreating. In addition, if it is moving through an SM+2 or smaller creature, this counts as an automatic slam attempt (Pyramid #3-77, p. 6). Failure to dodge means being sucked inside and pinned if of lower SM than the black pudding, or partly stuck in the black pudding and grappled if of equal or greater SM. The victim can break free by winning a Quick Contest of ST (allowed only every 10 seconds if pinned; and on a 17 or 18, he becomes so entangled that he cannot escape on his own); the black pudding has +10 to ST if pinning or +5 if grappling. Engulfed victims cannot breathe. If they run out of breath before they break free, they start to suffocate (see Holding Your Breath, p. B351 and Suffocation, p. B436). The typical black pudding can pin/grapple one foe; later enemies are pushed along in front of it unless they win a Quick Contest of ST to prevent it from moving. The black pudding can actively constrict engulfed victims, attacking them each turn with a Constriction Attack (p. B43). This ability has effective ST 24.
Acid: The creature secretes a digestive acid that dissolves organic material and metal, but does not affect stone. Any organic or metal creature or object touching the black pudding takes 1d-1 corrosion damage per second. Engulfed creatures and objects take it as Large-Area Injury (p. B400).
Ooze Senses: An ooze’s entire body is a primitive sensory organ that can ascertain prey by scent and vibration. It uses standard range penalties instead of a -1/yard penalty when detecting smells, and gets a +5 bonus on Smell and Taste rolls (Sense roll 15). Its smell operates both in air and underwater. In addition, the ooze can detect vibrations in the air. It can locate prey in the dark, but cannot detect details. To use Vibration Sense, the ooze must make a Sense roll (10). Consult the Size and Speed/Range Table (p. B550) and apply separate bonuses for the target’s size and speed, and a penalty for the range to the target. Wind will generate “noise” that interferes with this sense. Find the speed of the wind on the table and assess the relevant speed penalty. A successful roll reveals the rough size, location, speed, and direction of movement of the target, allowing the ooze to move to it and attempt to engulf it.

Engulf: If the black pudding starts its turn in close combat with prey or can move there on its turn, it tries to engulf its target; no attack roll is necessary and its quarry may defend only by dodging and retreating. In addition, if it is moving through an SM+3 or smaller creature, this counts as an automatic slam attempt (Pyramid #3-77, p. 6). Failure to dodge means being sucked inside and pinned if of lower SM than the black pudding, or partly stuck in the black pudding and grappled if of equal or greater SM. The victim can break free by winning a Quick Contest of ST (allowed only every 10 seconds if pinned; and on a 17 or 18, he becomes so entangled that he cannot escape on his own); the black pudding has +10 to ST if pinning or +5 if grappling.

Engulf: If the gray ooze starts its turn in close combat with prey or can move there on its turn, it tries to engulf its target; no attack roll is necessary and its quarry may defend only by dodging and retreating. In addition, if it is moving through an SM-1 or smaller creature, this counts as an automatic slam attempt (Pyramid #3-77, p. 6). Failure to dodge means being sucked inside and pinned if of lower SM than the gray ooze, or partly stuck in the gray ooze and grappled if of equal or greater SM. The victim can break free by winning a Quick Contest of ST (allowed only every 10 seconds if pinned; and on a 17 or 18, he becomes so entangled that he cannot escape on his own); the gray ooze has +10 to ST if pinning or +5 if grappling. The typical gray ooze can pin/grapple one foe; later enemies are pushed along in front of it unless they win a Quick Contest of ST to prevent it from moving. The gray ooze can actively constrict engulfed victims, attacking them each turn with a Constriction Attack (p. B43). This ability has effective ST 12.
Acid: The creature secretes a digestive acid that dissolves organic material and metal, but does not affect stone. Any organic or metal creature or object touching the gray ooze takes 1d-1 corrosion damage per second. Engulfed creatures and objects take it as Large-Area Injury (p. B400).
Ooze Senses: An ooze’s entire body is a primitive sensory organ that can ascertain prey by scent and vibration. It uses standard range penalties instead of a -1/yard penalty when detecting smells, and gets a +5 bonus on Smell and Taste rolls (Sense roll 15). Its smell operates both in air and underwater. In addition, the ooze can detect vibrations in the air. It can locate prey in the dark, but cannot detect details. To use Vibration Sense, the ooze must make a Sense roll (10). Consult the Size and Speed/Range Table (p. B550) and apply separate bonuses for the target’s size and speed, and a penalty for the range to the target.

A successful roll reveals the rough size, location, speed, and direction of movement of the target, allowing the ooze to move to it and attempt to engulf it.

Acid: The creature secretes a digestive acid that dissolves flesh. Any fleshy creature touching the gray ooze takes 1d-1 corrosion damage per second.
Ooze Senses: An ooze’s entire body is a primitive sensory organ that can ascertain prey by scent and vibration. It uses standard range penalties instead of a -1/yard penalty when detecting smells, and gets a +5 bonus on Smell and Taste rolls (Sense roll 15). Its smell operates both in air and underwater. In addition, the ooze can detect vibrations in the air. It can locate prey in the dark, but cannot detect details. To use Vibration Sense, the ooze must make a Sense roll (10). Consult the Size and Speed/Range Table (p. B550) and apply separate bonuses for the target’s size and speed, and a penalty for the range to the target. Wind will generate “noise” that interferes with this sense. Find the speed of the wind on the table and assess the relevant speed penalty.

Engulf: If the gelatinous cube starts its turn in close combat with prey or can move there on its turn, it tries to engulf its target; no attack roll is necessary and its quarry may defend only by
dodging and retreating. In addition, if it is moving through an SM+1 or smaller creature, this counts as an automatic slam attempt (Pyramid #3-77, p. 6). Failure to dodge means being sucked inside and pinned if of lower SM than the gelatinous cube, or partly stuck in the gelatinous cube and grappled if of equal or greater SM. The victim can break free by winning a Quick Contest of ST (allowed only every 10 seconds if pinned; and on a 17 or 18, he becomes so entangled that he cannot escape on his own); the gelatinous cube has +10 to ST if pinning or +5 if grappling. Engulfed victims cannot breathe. If they run out of breath before they break free, they start to suffocate (see Holding Your Breath, p. B351 and Suffocation, p. B436). The typical gelatinous cube can pin/grapple one foe; later enemies are pushed along in front of it unless they win a Quick Contest of ST to prevent it from moving. The gelatinous cube can actively constrict engulfed victims, attacking them each turn with a Constriction Attack (p. B43). This ability has effective ST 30.
Acid: The creature secretes a digestive acid that dissolves organic materials, but does not affect stone and metal. Any organic creature or object touching the gelatinous cube takes 1d-1 corrosion damage per second. Engulfed creatures and objects take it as Large-Area Injury (p. B400).
Paralysis: A gelatinous cube secretes an anesthetizing slime. If a creature touches the gelatinous cube with its bare skin, it must roll HT to resist. It becomes paralyzed for 3 seconds per point of margin of failure.
Ooze Senses: An ooze’s entire body is a primitive sensory organ that can ascertain prey by scent and vibration. It uses standard range penalties instead of a -1/yard penalty when detecting smells, and gets a +5 bonus on Smell and Taste rolls (Sense roll 15). Its smell operates both in air and underwater. In addition, the ooze can detect vibrations in the air. It can locate prey in the dark, but cannot detect details. To use Vibration Sense, the ooze must make a Sense roll (10).
