    Default Ooze character?

    Is there a book that details how to create an Ooze PC in D&D 3.X ? Looking on d20.org they don't have a LA =[
    I have to give Paizo credit...

    They took an established work and said they fixed it but didn't actually fix it and yet still made money off from it.

    How can you beat that?

    Oozes are nonintelligent, they aren't suitable for playing.

    They don't have an INT score...so how does that work?

    There has to be some ooze-based PrC around somewhere though...

    I'll look it up later to make sure, but off the top of my head I am sure there is a PRC in BoVD that turns you into a ooze at level 10.

    An ooze player would not be nearly as broken as warforged are so go ahead.
    Just remove their mindless traits and probably replace blindsight with eyes. Maybe replace immune to criticals with fortification and give them a small amount of DR and there you go. Also if it can literally squeeze into any hole give it an LA. (Yeah I know it's funny laugh it up)

    You could either try Oozemaster (PrC) for a humanoid that focuses on oozes.

    Or there is a template in Dungeonscape that gives Oozes intelligence.

    Masters of the Wild offers the Oozemaster prestige class, which changes your type to Ooze as its capstone. That's actually the most interesting thing about; the rest of its class features are very underwhelming and not worth the five lost caster levels. It's 3.0 besides, if that makes a difference.

    Normal oozes have LA "-" because they're mindless. You could make it a sentry ooze (template from Dungeonscape), but that would only give it Int 2, so still no level adjustment. (Do note, though, that the sentry ooze template technically grants +2 Int but doesn't actually give the creature an Int score. A creature can't gain bonuses to an ability score it doesn't have, so by RAW the "intelligent ooze" template is still mindless. Obviously not RAI, but still...)

    EDIT: Wow, ninja-ed eight times.

    Dandwiki has a pretty awesome homebrewed PrC called Oozebound (and also a silly version that is Jello themed). You get all sorts of cool abilities, and at the last level actually become a fully sentient ooze.

    I would provide a link, but right now that site seems to be down for me.

    Edit:
    Found it. Looks like fun.

    Yes, that's the one.

    I really like it, actually. Acid touch, immunities, and almost full casting. At the final level you can basically decide between one more caster level, and getting all the benefits of the ooze type, including immortality.

    Only problem I can see is that it doesn't grant acid immunity. You'd think a class that lets you secrete acid from your skin, would at the very least give you some resistance to it.

    Ooze-mad mage creation - started out not really intelligent, just hungry and wanting to survive. But as part of survival it found way to take over an elf-chick's body then had elf memories and more intelligence to work with, with comic results.

    They removed it? Oh well, I downloaded it before. Still need to get past the first level though, I keep getting side tracked by Heir To The Throne, now that I finally finished Descent Into Darkness, the most needlessly difficult campaign of all time. Amazing though.

    As for an ooze, this is just asking for homebrew, and it shouldn't be that difficult to balance.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    Gelatinous makes you lose Int (1) so can't play one: you'd need to be 1/2 Dragon to gain Int score high enough (bumps it to 3).

    So a Gelantious 1/2 Dragon (Race) would work. As well as adding anarchic unfinished (+5 LA) or axiomatic (perfect, LA +4).

    Your base Race's Int would be dumped to 1 than 1/2 dragon would add 2: so you'd have 3 Int.
    That's 3 LA though.

    I had a friend who played a cleric with the slime domain and obtained an item of acid immunity and rode around on a commanded gelatinous cube as a mount. Good times...

    make them either an awakened ooze or a half ooze (via magical metamorphosis of some sort; giving them some but not all aspect of ooze)

    There is actually a awesome comic called slimy thief about a (female :P) elf rogue who gets merged with an ooze due to a magic item...

    Can one Awaken an ooze, as a druid can awaken animals?

    Your DM would probably have to give an LA, but that might work. Or maybe a wizard researched a spell that awakens oozes, if such a spell doesn't already exist.

    I like the idea of a Living Blasphemy ooze that has become a Paladin. Terrible crunch-wise, I'm sure, but a funny class idea.

    Everyone knows optimizers have only two goals: to reduce their characters' charisma as much as possible, and to ruin the game for everyone by doing non-medieval stuff (ZOMG ROBOTS NOOOOOOOOO!!111!!!!!). Warforged hit both goals, and thus are very optimized, and thus are brokenly powerful.

    It all makes perfect sense.

    There is an awaken ooze spell, but it's in Dragon #304.

    There are a couple WotC Elite Opponents articles that do some... interesting things with oozes via templates. If you add one of the extraplanarish templates to an ooze, it usually bumps up the Int to a minimum of 3. I'd love to spring the fiendish monk cube on my players sometime...

    Living Spells are oozes, and one or two of them are intelligent... there's an Eberron PrC that lets you create living spells, but I forget if it was in a sourcebook or in Dragon.
