Mudlord

Edit Page Content

This fluid creature's roughly Humanoid form is composed entirely of thick gobbets of soggy, brown mud.

Mudlords are agile creatures made of living mud. Some are natural Elemental creatures, and others were created by long-term mixing of earth and magical water, such as by an enchanted fountain or pool leaking into the surrounding soil.

Regardless of their origin, mudlords are xenophobic and highly territorial. They avoid contact with Humanoid creatures, and go to great lengths to ensure their mud-filled lairs are far from any Humanoid settlements. If a group of humanoids settles too close to a mudlord enclave, the mudlords aggressively attempt to eradicate the Humanoid infestation from their lands.

Because its natural form is a loose pile of mud and it can flatten itself even further, a common mudlord tactic is to blend in with a swamp, quicksand, or other depression in the earth (using its Freeze ability to resemble a mud puddle) and wait for intruders to approach.

Among their own kind, mudlords are rambunctious and playful, engaging in wrestling matches, mud-throwing contests, and races. They have been known to ally with earth, mud, and water elementals, but consider themselves the superiors in these alliances because of their greater Intelligence. Exceptional mudlords often become druids, oracles, or rangers, and are more tolerant of humanoids, often accepting tribute from tribes of boggards, goblins, or Lizardfolk in exchange for truces. Some arise from contaminated sources (such as a demon imprisoned in water) and these might ally themselves with fiends, slimes, or other strange creatures.

A typical mudlord stands 7 feet tall and weighs 250 pounds.

Special Abilities

Engulf (Su) A mudlord can Engulf no more than one Medium or two Small or smaller creatures at a time.

Mudball (Ex) A mudlord can throw a ball of sticky mud up to 30 feet at an opponent's face as a ranged touch attack. It if hits, the target is blinded. Each round on its turn, the target can attempt a DC 16 Reflex save as a free action; if successful, the target shakes off the mud. The target or an adjacent Creature can wipe off the mud as a Standard Action. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Vulnerable to Magic (Ex) A Transmute Mud to Rock Spell deals 1d6 points of Damage per Caster Level to any mudlord in the area and automatically staggers it for 2d6 rounds.
