A place wherein this Dwarven Cleric can share his love of maps, dice, miniatures, and all things involving gaming and general geekery--not to mention the occasional witty non-gaming observations--whilst escaping from the humdrum existence of his routine Terran existence.

Hail and Well Met, fellow traveler! May my Stronghold provide a place for enlightenment and amusement, and somewhere to keep your dice dry. Enter and rest awhile.

Please Exc-ooze Me -- The Bestiary: Baby Black Pudding [OSR Challenge Creature]

OK, so.... Since the OSR Challenge short adventures are to be short on detail, and becaue I wanted to include this little guy, I'm listing the stats here, in a separate post. I understand that this may not quite meet the spirit of the OSR Challenge, but I just couldn't get this idea out of my head.

A baby ooze.

OK. Maybe it's not really a "baby" ooze, but a smaller-than-usual one, size: large rather than XL. Why do we need such a thing? You'll see. Soon.

Essentially it's a standard black pudding from the Monster Manual, just with some reduced stats.

I suppose you could go with a regular black pudding, but a split pudding, but I like the concept of "junior" a little better for my needs.
