Amorphous: The pudding can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide without squeezing.

Corrosive Form: A creature that touches the pudding or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 4 (1d8) acid damage . Any nonmagical weapon made of metal or wood that hits the pudding corrodes. After dealing damage, the weapon takes a permanent and cumulative -1 penalty to damage rolls. If its penalty drops to -5, the weapon is destroyed. Nonmagical ammunition made of metal or wood that hits the pudding is destroyed after dealing damage. The pudding can eat through 2-inch-thick, nonmagical wood or metal in 1 round.

Spider Climb: The pudding can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.


Pseudopod: Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 3) bludgeoning damage plus 18 (4d8) acid damage. In addition, nonmagical armor worn by the target is partly dissolved and takes a permanent and cumulative -1 penalty to the AC it offers. The armor is destroyed if the penalty reduces its AC to 10.


Split: When a pudding that is Medium or larger is subjected to lightning or slashing damage, it splits into two new puddings if it has at least 10 hit points. Each new pudding has hit points equal to half the original pudding's, rounded down. New puddings are one size smaller than the original pudding.

The SendingStone review

This is not an opinion piece about black pudding, but rather a set of stats for a creature in a role-playing game. It is rated as a challenge level 4 and has a high constitution but low charisma and dexterity. It is immune to various conditions and has a high HP. However, there is no discussion of its taste, nutritional value, or cultural significance in relation to black pudding as a food item.

Black Pudding is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Black Pudding Pathfinder edition. Want to use Black Pudding in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
