The Savage Frontier
Sentient ooze who wants to see the world
One day a gelatinous cube awoke after a good meal, a lost drow warrior, and realized that not only did it have telepathy, but that it was sentient and had a soul. Thus, it named itself Glabbagool. Glabbagool, being very new to this sentience things, is very curious about the world around it and wishes only to make friends. Shaking hands is a bad idea for two reasons. One, Glabbagool has no hands. Two, Glabbagool would melt any hands that touched it. h3. Stats Armor Class: 6 Hit Points: 84 Speed: 15 ft. Height: 10 foot cube Weight: 15,000 lbs.

Ooze Cube: The cube takes up its entire space. Other creatures can enter the space, but a creature that does so is subjected to the cube's Engulf and has disadvantage on the saving throw. Creatures inside of the cube have total cover. A creature within 5 ft. of the cube can take an action to pull a creature or object out of the cube. Doing so requires a successful DC 12 Strength check, and the creature making the attempt takes 10 (3d6) acid damage. The cube can hold only one Large creature or up to four Medium or smaller creatures inside at a time.

Hit: 10 (3d6) acid damage. Engulf: The cube moves up to its speed. While doing so, it can enter Large or smaller creatures' spaces. Whenever a cube enters a creature's space, the creature must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw. On a successful save, the creature can choose to be pushed 5 feet back or to the side of the cube. A creature that chooses not to be pushed suffers the consequences of a failed saving throw. On a failed save, the cube enters the creature's space, and the creature takes 10 (3d6) acid damage and is engulfed. The engulfed creature can't breathe, is restrained, and takes 21 (6d6) acid damage at the start of each of the cube's turns. An engulfed creature can try to escape by taking an action to make a DC 12 Strength check. On a success, the creature escapes and enters a space of its choice within 5 feet of the cube.
Glabbagool was hard-pressed to find friends within the Oozing Temple when a party of adventurers killed once of the more rude gray oozes he had been ignoring. The group, though hesitant, was nice enough to call him a friend and tell him bits about where they came from, so he disgorged the drow and his belongings as gifts to them, and now is giving them a tour around the temple.
Happily leading the way through the temple, Glabbagool took point and fell into a pit trap with a black pudding. He has no idea why somebody would put a black pudding in there. It was spicy, and it was delicious.
Having found new friends, when they flooded the Oozing Temple and escaped, Glabbagool followed. The party left Glabbagool behind because he slowed them down too much. Wishing to visit him in the future, Nashua tossed a silver piece into Glabbagool and told him to hold onto it. In the future he would find his oozy friend again and take him to the surface.
