Adhesive
Effect: A mimic exudes a thick slime that acts as a powerful adhesive, holding fast any creatures or items that touch it. An adhesive-covered mimic can use it to automatically grab any creature it hits with it's pseudopods. A weapon that strikes an adhesive-coated mimic is stuck fast unless the wielder succeeds on an Escape check. Strong alcohol dissolves the adhesive, but the mimic can dissolve it's adhesive at will, and the substance breaks down 5 rounds after the creature dies.
Mimic Shape ♦ at-will
Effect: A mimic can assume the general shape of any object that fills roughly 150 cubic feet (5 feet by 5 feet by 6 feet) or 1 square, such as a massive chest, a stout bed, or a wide door frame. The creature cannot substantially alter its size, though. A mimic’s body is hard and has a rough texture, no matter what appearance it might present. This grants the mimic a DC 30 against Perception checks made to detect it.

General Information[edit]

Mimic Tactics[edit]

A mimic often surprises an unsuspecting adventurer, lashing out with a heavy pseudopod. The creature does not necessarily fight to the death if it can succeed in extorting treasure or food from a party.

Mimic Lore[edit]

A character knows the following information with a successful Dungeoneering check.

DC 15: It is said mimics are not natural creatures but were created long ago by a now-forgotten wizard. Ever since, these terrible things have served to guard treasures. A mimics glue-like secretions can be dissolved by using strong alcoholic spirits. Beer, and/or wine, are too weak to dissolve the glue.
DC 20: Most mimics can be bribed with a substantial amount of food or gems, although if they have gone too long between feedings it may be impossible to reason with them. All mimics have the ability to speak Common almost right from "birth".

Encounter Groups[edit]

Mimics are solitary creatures that tend to inhabit deserted locales that contain the remnants of habitation, allowing them to blend in as part of the background and more easily hunt unwary prey. They dislike sunlight and therefore always dwell in darkened or subterranean environments. Mimics may serve other creatures as a form of guard as long as they are well fed and given the occasional gem (which they enjoy looking at between hunts).
