Gelatinous cube

From PathfinderWiki
Gelatinous cube
(Creature)

A gelatinous cube is usually a large ooze that appears to be transparent and cube-shaped. The cubes have no visible organs or appendages. Cubes tend to hide and wait for prey to stumble into their embrace.[1] The cubes were first created through a sorcerer's experiments.[2]

Treasure

Gelatinous cubes do not collect treasure, but they tend to absorb it as they travel and are unable to digest it.[3] Indigestible parts of victims may remain suspended in a cube for weeks until the cube expels them from its body. Coins, weapons, metallic armor, gemstones, jewelry, potions, and glass flasks are commonly found inside gelatinous cubes.[4]
