This rich brown goop smells heavenly. It's the food that eats back.

A strange ooze that sneaks into places food is prepared feeding off the pantry snacks until it can hunt bigger tastier prey, it appears to be rich delicious hot gravy right down to the scent and taste. It attracts pretty by appearing to be a tasty treat, only for the eating to go the other way. For this reason it has adapted to naturally slip into bowls, containers, or on top of appropriate food to appear as being part of a normal kitchen environment.

Out of most oozes, gravy oozes are surprisingly dexterous. When active or attempting to trick prey their core body temperature grows quite high.


Ambush predators, they rely on surprise attacks and grapples to stop counterattacks and fast healing to repair the damage taken from this tactic. If badly wounded they are not opposed to using their Compact ability and rolling away.

Compact (Ex): The gravy ooze can pull into a tight, nearly solid ball for mobility and defense as a swift action. In this state they gain +10 natural armor, gain +10 to their land speed, and they reduce their size category by one. They lose their slam attack and engulf abilities, and must release any grapples. This is largely a defensive maneuver to escape for cover or slip into a tight container.

Delicious (Ex): The gravy ooze smells like delicious food. Creatures which get within 5 ft (or for creatures with Scent whenever they get into scent range) must make a Will save DC 18 or be compelled to take a bite using a bite attack or an unarmed strike, even if a more suitable weapon exists. Creatures get a save each round to resist as long as they can smell it. It does not function on creatures without biology.

Heat (Ex): The gravy ooze has a high internal heat. It deals 1d6 points of fire damage on its natural attacks and to creatures grappling it.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a gravy ooze must hit with a slam attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.
