This rad slug can spit out slime that deals 2d6 + your Intelligence modifier psychic damage on a hit, and you can use your Intelligence modifier for the attack rolls, in which you are proficient. In addition, you can grapple with your Slime Spit like you normally would, but you can use Intelligence(Arcana) in place of Strength(Athletics) for the grapple check. You cannot use this feature when trying to escape a grapple. The damage of your Slime Spit increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown on the Rad Slug table.
At 5th level, when you make an attack with your Slime Spit, you can attempt to grapple the target as part of the same action.
At 11th level, any grapple attempt you make with your Slime Spit automatically succeeds if the target is Medium or smaller.
At 17th level, when you begin a grapple with your Slime Spit, if the target is creature, it must succeed on an Intelligence saving throw or be stunned until the grapple ends. The DC for this saving throw equals 8 + your Intelligence modifier + your proficiency bonus.
Extends the distance of your Rad Slug Slime Slide by 10 feet. Additionally, creatures your slime touches (either by your slime spit, or by steady rolling over them) roll a Constitution saving throw (16) or have their AC reduced by 15 until the state of your next turn. Crits with slime Spit steady reduce the enemy’s AC to 0 until the start of your next turn!
As an action, you can unleash the fury of your mind. When you do so, all creatures in a 60-foot cone originating from you must make an Intelligence saving throw. On a failure, a creature takes 2d8 + your Intelligence modifier psychic damage and is stunned for 1 minute. A stunned creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on a success. The DC for this saving throw equals 8 + your Intelligence modifier + your proficiency bonus. The damage of your Mind Blast increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown on the Rad Slug table. You have 1 use of this feature, and you regain that use when you finish a short or long rest.
At 5th level, when you start your turn with no uses of your mind blast left, you can roll a d6 (no action required). If you roll a 6, you regain the use of your mind blast.
At 11th level, you regain the use of your Mind Blast if you roll a 5 or a 6 on the d6.
At 17th level, when a creature succeeds on it's saving throw against your mind blast, it takes half the damage it would have taken on a failure, instead of none.
While you are grappling an incapacitated creature, you can attempt to remove its brain. Make an attack roll using your Intelligence modifier in which you are proficient. If it hits, you deal 3d10 piercing damage to the target. If this damage reduces the creature to 0 hit points, you break open its skull, rip out its brain, and devour it. Once you use this feature, you can't use it again until you finish a long rest.
At 17th level, you no longer have to finish a long rest before you use your Extract Brain again. You must still abide by all other restrictions stated.
