Blue, Red, and Metal Slimes appear as large droplets of gelatin with a cartoonish looking face. They move by bouncing around at high speeds. Their main attack is bouncing and touching a creature with their acidic bodies, doing damage according to their type, eating away non-metallic objects. After killing a humanoid creature, it will absorb the creature's face to replace its old face, giving it powers of rudimentary speech and sight. It has to absorb a face every two weeks or otherwise its internal acids will destroy it, making it blind and speechless.

If killed, their acids go inert. They taste like Jello and, like Jello, have little nutritional value.

Blue Slimes are the most common of all of the slimes. They have 1 Hit Die and do 1d4 damage with their touch. 

Red Slimes are bit stronger than the Blue Slimes. They have 2 Hit Dice and do 1d8 damage.

Metal Slime is the most powerful of the slimes, composed of a metallic-like gel that is hard to damage. They have 5 HD and do 1d12 damage per attack.  


  1. Thank you. Now I need to add these to wilderness encounter tables. My wife, who loves the Dragonquest series, will love this.

    1. I'm glad you're enjoying these. And thank you for being patient while I play "catch up" for the challenge.

  2. I've probably logged hundreds of hours of my life playing the original NES Dragon Warrior. I think the noise the slimes make when you hit them is permanently embedded in my brain :)
