Gelatinous slimy creatures, they rarely appears to have mind and comprehension. You are the lucky exception. Oozes don’t have fixed shape, moving constantly from one appearance to another which makes them immune to paralysation and resistant to other negative effects like poison and acid. Oozes mostly live in wet dungeons and caves and have a very wide variety of diet, so oozes get nourishment upon every enemy which was killed by it. They can have ESP, but can’t tell precise information about monster (don’t show monster’s list). They have excellent infravision and survivability. Oozes can duplicate themselves (
y key) making its minor copies which can attack and distract enemies. They can pass doors by crawling under them.
