A honey blood can grow to a diameter of up to 5 feet and a thickness of about 5 feet. a typical specimen weighs about 210 lbs, but can compress its body to fit into cracks as small as 1 inch wide. they are blood red in color and taste quite a bit like sweet and sour sauce(the good kind.) They speak their own language, which it takes two points in speak language which is effectivly a secrate language because it is incomprehensible. They understand all languages.

With a successful grapple the honey blood can excrete a toxin onto the creature being grappled, as a free action each round.
__________________________________________________ ________
poison | type | primary | secondary:
Honey Blood drool | touch dc 17 | 2d6 str | 1d6 str
__________________________________________________ _______
after the acid digests the victim the honey blood takes on the victim's con mod X it's hit die in temporary points---they last 9 rounds

the creature sicretes a digestive acid that dissolves organic material and metal quickly but does not effect stone. any melee hit or constrict attack deals acid damage, and the opponent's armor and clothing dissolveimmediatly unless it succeeds on a DC 21 reflex save.; the save dc's are constitution based.

The honey blood acidic touch deals 21 points of damage per round to wooden or metal objects, but the aberration must remain in contact with the object for 1 full round to deal this damage.

Collective mind:
Honey bloods maintain telepathic contact with all other honey bloods on the plane it currently inhabits, this allows them to formulate and execute intricate plans as well as quickly adapt to many situations.

When anyd living creature ingests a portion of honey blood it must make a DC10 fort save or begin hosting a young honey blood, the DC goes up by 5 every day that the honey blood is consumed.
information on host of the honey blood is coming

clearly an ooze, though it is an abberation...which is odd

But, if it's an [Ooze] type, it gets ooze traits, which includes being mindless. I suppose that is why you've chosen [Aberration], as it is the closest thing to an ooze, but can still be intelligent.

Well, let's see if I can read through it closely...
It's a blood red ooze that tastes like sweet and sour sauce. It is in constant contact with all other honeybloods on its plane. It also impregnates people who it.

Therefore it must be....

The Super Sinister Sweet and Sour Sauce from Space!

fluff please?

Seconded... CR depends on tactics to a degree.

And their are precedents for oozes occasionally NOT being mindless, you just need to specify the variations from the standard rules.

Personally I would like to see them try to be upstanding members of the community, occasionally found hard at work in mines and as hired guards. They also cultivate brown bears for reproductive purposes (since bears like sweet stuff) and perhaps occasionally selling bits of themselves as poisons, including for the execution of particularly vile criminals. But their main source of income is in relaying messages via their telepathy for quick delivery to far locations (they etch the telepathy-gram into a plank of wood with their acid and hand it to the recipient). I mean really, just because you have the POWER as a race to be a world-wide threat by taking aggressively self-interested actions, doesn't mean you WILL. I want to see more horrific looking creatures, capable of dealing painful deaths even to seasoned warriors choosing to live simple, peaceful lives, causing no particular trouble to those who don't cause them any. Just the barbed mass of flesh (or whatever) next door, you know?
