This creature is unlike anything we’ve encountered so far. It is clearly an elemental but it seems to exhibit several physiological traits of various oozes as well. Could corruption be the cause of such a malformation? It is unknown.
The creature itself is fairly large, taking up the space of several small fishing skiffs or perhaps an elephant. It is deceptively difficult to quantify how much volume an amorphous creature takes up. The creature is the color of the ocean water from which it was created, rendering it effectively invisible in that water unless it is moving.
Low. These creatures do require sustenance, a fact we didn’t learn quick enough to preserve the first two captured specimens. They seem to feed on whatever they absorb in much the same fashion as a Gelatinous Cube. They are predominantly composed of water so their food requirements are low, approximately 2 pounds of fish every few days was enough to keep our third specimen alive and somewhat active. When they are in the water their needs change, using water for sustenance instead.
In a word? Angry. These creatures are not intelligent and whatever force animates them also imbues them with a need to destroy. They prefer to attack things smaller than themselves, regardless of the threat those things pose. Rafts were attacked as quickly as balloons or people.
Minimal. These creatures would be far more dangerous if they could strategize or retreat.
Fair. They can attack with many pseudo-pods of various sizes and lengths that they project from their core, battering their targets. They have a somewhat small range, our specimens weren’t able to strike at targets more than twenty feet away. Not all of the creatures are precisely the same though, it is assumed that larger specimens would have a longer range. The creature can also grasp a target and absorb it, generally killing the target via suffocation or, when no other targets are present, via the application of blunt trauma from within. Also, it should be noted that these creatures are very difficult to kill if they are in contact with a water source. Our fifth specimen, when in contact with the ocean, was able to withstand several large barrages of arrow fire.
Vulnerabilities and Immunities:
Cold works, as does electricity. Fire appears to do nothing. Acid is also ineffective. Aural damage was reduced in effectiveness. Piercing weapons were basically useless. Slashing and bludgeoning weapons were effective. Positive and negative energy attacks operated within normal ranges. Poison wasn’t effective. Disease was also useless. Force damage, as always, proved effective. Immune to suffocation. Starvation or dehydration is possible if time consuming. All of this was rendered useless if the creature was in contact with an external water source unless massive trauma was inflicted all at once.
Regular patrols along the fishing routes to keep the creatures at bay, they pose a large threat to fishermen and their ilk as well as anyone traveling by small seafaring vessels. When found, engage and exterminate.
