A Quivering Ooze is a strange creature of the Riverlands. A transparent blob of clear jelly that can spread over a large area in the gloom of the river's edge. The Ooze moves very slowly, engulfing its prey by gradual stealth, and then dissolving it with its acidic flesh. Anything that the Ooze engulfs takes D6 Lethal damage per round, including weapons, armour, and stone. Armour protects for a number of rounds equal to its protection, and then has been eaten through.
Attacking the Ooze is very difficult. Any blow against it subjects the attacker (and the weapon) to the same damage. The Ooze will attempt to pursue a target (opposed Agility). If it can catch one it will try and suck them in (resisted Physical) and engulf them. Large Oozes can engulf multiple targets. Ooze flesh retains it's corrosive properties for only a few days after its death. If it can be collected and used in that time (glass and glazed pottery are both resistant) then it can give a +2 crafting bonus for etching metal and similar tasks.
In water the Ooze has +8 A and D.
