Necrotic Ooze

The necrotic ooze is a type worm-like creature that appears to be in a small puddle of sludge. Sometimes it is mistaken for a baby black snake. However, this is a living ooze, which using stealth sneaks into a target’s occupied space then strikes. It must be this close as it's reach for attack is 0 feet. However, if bitten, this little worm often becomes mistaken for some sort of undead, as its bite is capable of a life-drain. It inflicts a single point of piercing damage from the bite, but then delivers a necrotic drain for d6 points of damage. Further, the victim must make a Resilience save (DC:12) or have the lost points removed from the Body score maximum value as a life-drain. This draining effect will heal back at the same rate natural healing occurs; however, while under the normal maximum, natural and medical healing will not occur during rests. Magical healing can restore current points but cannot exceed the max value at the time.
Because of its smaller size and rubbery form, it gains +3 in the Other category of AC. Further, the necrotic ooze is immune to blunt damage and resistant to non-magical edged and piercing weapons. These creatures are effectively mindless, granting them immunity to all mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, illusions, etc). Further, they are blind (but have 20-feet radius of blindsight) which gives them immunity to gaze attacks, visual effects, illusions, and other attack forms that rely on sight. Like all oozes, these are immune to poison, sleep effects, paralysis, polymorph, and stunning.
The wormlike oozes are hermaphroditic. When two breed, they leave behind roughly 100 gelatinous eggs in a small puddle of highly acidic milt. A dozen or so become fertilized and survive long enough to hatch, after which they immediately devour the others.
