Commentary[edit]

This is an updated version of the 3.0 Oozemaster, which I tweaked to make more interesting. -- Eiji 03:03, 31 January 2008 (MST)

You may want to add something regarding intelligence scores when become an Ooze. By gaining the Ooze type, they gain all traits (unless otherwise noted). And, as it's not noted; they gain the Mindless trait. Just make a note of it. --TK-Squared 21:20, 27 February 2008 (MST)
Done, thanks for noticing. -- Eiji 22:54, 27 February 2008 (MST)
I like it, but... I guess I just have a hard time thinking of an ooze as something that comes off a caster-type. Still, I'd play it, if only because I like oozes. ^_^;; --Ddragon Necrophades 23:04, 22 September 2008 (MDT)
Thanks. Mmmm, ooze caster. One day I'll play that dragonborn goliath wizard oozebound so I can be a powerful build Con based self buffing wizard. FIRE BREATHING JELLO! -- Eiji 23:21, 22 September 2008 (MDT)
hee hee hee, that'd be funny, but I wonder, since they wouldn't technically have a mouth, how would they exactly "breathe" fire while still in goo form? I'm actually wondering, also, does the DR stack with any other DR that the character might have from another class level? You didn't say. Rith 12:47, 22 October 2008 (MDT)
It's carbonated slime. Fizzle, pop, spew! Anyway, I believe unless stated otherwise, all like DR from classes stack, so barbarian's DR/- stacks with Dwarven Defender's DR/-, and thus likewise Oozebound. -- Eiji 19:46, 22 October 2008 (MDT)
Hate to say it but, I don't believe damage reduction stacks, you just get the best one. --Calidore Chase 19:55, 22 October 2008 (MDT)
A little correction, it's actually more accurate to say unless stated otherwise, it doesn't stack, but the classes all 'state otherwise' generally. Things from templates, spells, and items don't always say that. In any case, it's meant to stack so I'll clarify, just in case. -- Eiji 20:22, 22 October 2008 (MDT)
Well thanks for the info, I really think this PrC is very interesting and I'm probably going to use it for an NPC in my campaign. (Although it could use some extra fluff text in my opinion) Can't wait to see my PC's faces when they realize that an Ooze is talking to them. Rith 21:36, 22 October 2008 (MDT)
I have a question on the charisma penalty. Is the penalty (-1, -2, etc.) to the Oozebounds ability score or just all charisma based skills? -Tyraxor 22:10 6/6/0p

(Resets the indent) To the ability score. Though... I have considered changing it since it makes sorcerer slimes all but impossible. On that note... Discuss. Is it balanced to make it a skill penalty? -- Eiji 22:59, 6 June 2009 (MDT)

Changing it directly from a stat penalty to a skill penalty will hurt non-sorcerers MORE, and make sorcerers playable. Honestly, I don't see it as a big deal to have it as a skill penalty, or to just remove it. Dragon Child 23:03, 6 June 2009 (MDT)
I am ok with that, I don't see a diplomacer type trying to become an ooze. A sorcerer, however, I can see doing it, as will several other Cha based but not necessarily "social" builds. I am keeping it, half for balance and half due to the spirit which I made it... an updated 3.0 class. Should I consider your last post a vote for skills and not ability? -- Eiji 23:07, 6 June 2009 (MDT)
Yup. Dragon Child 23:08, 6 June 2009 (MDT)

Paradigm Shift[edit]

This page is now a concept Bill Cosby could be proud of. You knew it was jello all along. If you're looking for the original Oozebound it has been moved here- [1] -- Eiji 23:32, 29 August 2009 (MDT)

Why? Y'know, seeing the class presented in this way makes me less inclined to take it seriously, and I doubt many DMs would permit a character with the "Jello form" ability at his table...


Rating[edit]

Power - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because the power of this class is quite balanced and nearly perfect. --173.247.24.74 16:39, 27 August 2012 (MDT)

Wording - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because this is well worded and i cannot find even one breakable wording. --173.247.24.74 16:39, 27 August 2012 (MDT)

Flavor - 4/5 I give this class a 4 out of 5 because the flavor is absolutely amazing, but not as detailed as some. --173.247.24.74 16:39, 27 August 2012 (MDT)
