Ochre jellies were a dangerous variety of ooze.[3]

Description[]

Ochre jellies resembled giant amoebas, dark yellow in color. A mature ochre jelly reached up to 15 feet (4.6 meters) in diameter and around 6 inches (15 centimeters) thick. However, it could compress its mass to fit through gaps of only 1 inch (2.5 centimeters). Moreover, it had a mass of 5,600 pounds (2,500 kilograms).[3]

Combat[]

They lurked in dungeons, slowly creeping along floors, walls, and ceilings and under and through doors and cracks looking for victims.[3][2] When they were found, the ochre jelly extended itself and latched onto a victim, proceeding to constrict and engulf them. The jelly exuded pseudopods to slam and grapple foes in combat.[3]

Ecology[]

If cut, an ochre jelly could split into two similar, but smaller, offspring.[3]

Habitats[]

Ochre jellies were known to exist in the dungeon of Xûl-Jarak in Thar.[6] They could also be found in the ruins of the Ulcaster school near Beregost.[7]

In the Abyss, ochre jellies could be found in Shedaklah, the Slime Pits, the 222nd layer of the Abyss.[8]

Significance[]

They were favored by the drow deity Ghaunadaur.[9]
