Ochre jellies resemble giant amoebas, consisting of a thick, golden sludge.


The ooze’s body is made up of yellow-orange colored acid capable of dissolving any organic material. An ochre jelly can grow to a diameter of about 15 feet and a thickness of about 6 inches, but can compress its body to fit into cracks as small as 1 inch wide. A typical specimen weighs about 5,600 pounds.


They lurk in dungeons, slowly creeping along floors, walls and ceilings, under and through doors and cracks looking for victims. When they are found, the ochre jellies extends itself and latches onto them, then proceeding to constrict and engulf them. The jelly exudes pseudopods to slam and grapple foes in combat.


Ochre jellies reproduce asexually, occasionally being found with several of its divided offspring.


Ochre jellies were known to exist in the dungeon of Xûl-Jarak in Thar.[2] They could also be found in the ruins of the Ulcaster school near Beregost.[3]
