SPECIAL ABILITIES

Death Throes (Ex)

A Jubilex-touched marsh jelly deals 3d6 points of acid damage and 3d6 points of profane damage to anything within 10 feet when it is killed. A successful DC 22 Reflex save reduces the acid damage by half (but does not reduce the profane damage).

Disorienting Glow (Ex)

When a marsh jelly first takes damage, its body begins pulsating and flashing rapidly, emitting an eerie greenish glow. Creatures viewing a pulsating marsh jelly must succeed on a DC 22 Will save or be dazzled for 1d4 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based.

Poison (Ex)

Tentacle–injury; save DC 22; frequency 1/ round for 4 rounds; effect 1d2 Dexterity damage; cure 2 consecutive saves. The save DC is Constitution-based.

ECOLOGY

Environment any (Abyss)
Organization solitary or globe (2-5)
Treasure standard

Jubilex-touched marsh jellies are advanced jellies that have been “blessed” by the Lord of the Underpits. They are found floating throughout the slime pits and bogs of his Abyssal plane. Jubilex sometimes sends these creatures to the material planes to aid his worshipers, avenge those who have wronged him, or to simply wreak as much havoc as possible.

A Jubilex-touched marsh jelly’s natural weapons are treated as chaotic-aligned and evil-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
