Energy Drain (Su)

Living creatures hit by the Slaad Lord’s slam attack gain 3 negative levels. The DC is 45 for the Fortitude save to remove a negative level. The DC is Constitution-based.

Amorphous (Ex)

The Slaad Lord of the Insane is not subject to critical hits, and having no clear front or back, cannot be flanked.

Change Shape (Su)

The Slaad Lord of the Insane can assume the shape of a humanoid as a standard action. In humanoid form, the slaad lord cannot use its natural weapons and does not deal negative levels. He usually assumes as a human male fighter cloaked in black plate armor wielding an iron black longsword (purportedly the legendary Black Sword: a +3 cold iron longsword that stuns any creature struck, as if by a power word stun spell, for 1d10 minutes if the victim fails a DC 24 Fortitude save).


Environment Limbo
Organization solitary or troupe (Lord of the Insane plus 1-2 death slaadi)
Treasure triple standard

The Slaad Lord of the Insane is one of the most powerful slaad lords in existence, and no slaadi questions his authority or rulership, even the other slaad lords.

The Slaad Lord of the Insane is one of the few slaad lords that enjoys traveling the planes and often enters the Material Plane disguised as a tall, mystical warrior adorned in black plate armor. In the outer planes, he is often encountered in his amoeba form or that of a great golden slaad.

The Slaad Lord of the Insane generally covers an area about 5 feet wide and feet tall, but being similar in makeup to an ooze, can flatten his form and cover a greater area or squeeze through openings much smaller than would normally be allowed. His tentacles are 10 feet long.

The Slaad Lord of the Insane attacks using his spell-like abilities and slam attacks. His natural weapons, as well as any weapon he wields, are considered chaotic-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. His natural weapons are considered epic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
