Half-Ooze: A stretchy, squishy, and very hungry playable race

Suggested Price $0.99

HALF-OOZES are a hybrid race born of adventurers who delved too deep and the creeping things that found them there. Hunger drives a half-ooze forward into adventure—a hunger that must be satisfied, lest it consume utterly.

A PLAYABLE RACE for those who want a creepy character, half-oozes are an entirely original creation, ready for any setting.

THREE SUBRACES offer slimy variety to players, each with original abilities unique to the nature of the ooze.

RIGOROUSLY EVALUATED by the community at r/UnearthedArcana and upvoted at over 90%, half-oozes are ready to hit your table.


Sometimes, in dark caverns or long-forgotten forests, a hapless wanderer meets an untimely end at the creeping pseudopids of an ooze sire. Usually catching travelers while asleep, the sire slies into a humanoid’s ears, nose, and mouth—and once it’s inside, it’s too late. What awakes from that slumber is a new creature, a half-ooze, half-humanoid thing that is aware of only three things: its strangely malleable body, the dim memories of its past life, and an overwhelming hunger.

Hey David, I am wondering if you ever planned to import this and other races you made into D&D Beyond?

Hey, that's a great question! I haven't messed with importing races there at all, but I'd like to try!

This is brilliant and has also for me been a perfect inspiration for an NPC for my campaign setting. Excellent work.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
