Red slaadi were a type of slaad.[1]


Red slaadi had long claws. If a humanoid were hit by one of these claws, it could become infected with a slaad egg.[1]

If allowed to mature, after three months the egg formed a slaad tadpole that erupted from the host's chest, destroying all internal organs and instantly killing the host. The newborn tadpole would then eat the corpse and within hours mature into either a blue slaad or a green slaad if the host was a sufficiently powerful spellcaster.[1]

Red slaadi appeared as the result of the chaos phage disease that infected humanoids by contact with blue slaadi hooks.[1]
