ECOLOGY

Environment any (underground)
Organization solitary, pair, or guard (3-6)
Treasure incidental

This guardian creature is created when a black pudding is allowed to naturally grow before being exposed to sufficient demonic influences to instill low-level intelligence, granting it fiendish characteristics. When these traits and abilities are firmly in place, the resulting creature is decanted into a stone storm giant-sized mold and stone salve is magically applied to keep the form constant.

The resulting creature is a powerhouse of offensive capability, though somewhat vulnerable to magic if its spell resistance is breached, and it wades into battle with few cares, particularly as its stone salve protection is limitless. Its pseudopod is wielded as if it were a great club of appropriate size for the creature, one dripping acid.
