Pathfinder: New Monster – Slime Beast

Longtime followers of JBE will know that I run a Kingmaker Pathfinder game at home. We’re currently playing in our alternate adventure path (Carrion Crown) while I do a rewrite of adventure 4. Short of the long, the group has gone a little off the very loose AP rails and adventure 4 is being tossed for my campaign. While I’m using some of it as a basis, I need new material. The Book of Beasts: Monsters of the River Nations is a great place to start, but I need more. So I’m generating my own adventure and some custom monsters during this break. Today I created this monster and I thought I would share it with you. So here you go, one free monster. Enjoy.

Special Abilities


Acid Body (Ex) The physical form of the slime beast is a gelled acid. It is immune to all damage from piercing or slashing weapons . Additionally, all objects that strike the slime beast sustain 1d6 points of acid damage. Creatures that strike the slime beast with a natural weapon or an unarmed attack sustain 1d6 points of acid damage.
Acid Glob (Ex) Once every 2 rounds, a slime beast can produce a ball of slime in its hand and throw it at a range increment of 10 ft. to a maximum of 60 ft. Those successfully struck by the blog of slime sustain 4d6 points of acid damage and must succeed a DC 24 Fortitude save or sustain an additional 4d6 points of damage the following round on the slime beast’s turn. Producing the glob of slime and throwing it  is a single standard action. Being completely submerged in water will reduce the second round’s damage by half.

  1. […] any artwork for it yet, but I figured I share my new monster with you nonetheless. Here you go. Slime Beast __________________ Dale McCoy, Jon Brazer […]

  2. i just built a pocket plane of corrosive water to teach my PC’s a lesson about wandering blindly into any and every portal in the realms. They’re currently standing outside the entry portal debating whether they should enter or not… gee I can’t guess what they’re going to decide! I needed some crazy acid blob monster to defend the gate home… and here it is! Thank you!

  3. You’re welcome. Glad I could help.
