Blood amniotes were a type of undead ooze made of congealed blood and which gorged on blood.[2][1]

Description[]

Blood amniotes were composed of hundreds of dead bodies that had died within close proximity of each other.[1]

Combat[]

Blood amniotes would sneak up behind their prey and attempt to grapple them with numerous grasping tendrils, then proceed to drain blood from their victim's body.[3]

History[]

Around the Year of Wild Magic, 1372 DR, one could occasionally find blood amniotes within the Dungeon of the Crypt.[4]

Rumors & Legends[]

Scholars were uncertain as to the exact origin of blood amniotes, with debates split between spontaneous formation or artificial creation through necromantic rituals involving mass sacrifice.[3]

One legend claimed that they inadvertently came about due to the actions of priests of Orcus. The legend stated that the priests unleashed a storm of burning blood against two opposing armies and that from this mass slaughter arose the first blood amniotes.[3]
