Gumwall Ooze

If you're from the Seattle area, you might know where the inspiration from this monster came from.
If not, the Gumwall in Seattle is a very interesting, disgusting thing.When they announced it was to be cleaned, I could only imagine it roaring to life in protest to become one of my favorite monster types: an ooze!

Without further ado...

Sticky (Ex)

Any opponent within 5 feet of the gumwall ooze who successfully hits it with a melee attack automatically receives a ropey tendril of chewed gum affixed to him. Those affected by the gum tendrils cannot move more than 5 feet away from the gumwall ooze and take a –2 penalty to AC as long as they are stuck. The gumwall ooze tendril can be removed by making an opposed Strength check as a standard action or by dealing 8 points of slashing damage to the tendril (AC 13, damage does not deplete the gumwall ooze’s actual hit points, nor incur a new tendril). The gumwall ooze cannot move more than 5 feet away from the target, but can release its tendril as a free action. There is no limit to the number of tendrils that a gumwall ooze can produce, but only one tendril can affect each individual target at a time. A gumwall ooze has a +4 bonus to attacks on opponents that have its tendrils affixed to them.

The Gumwall Ooze is a unique creature consisting of discarded chewing gum from the many thousands of residents and visitors to a large seaside town. After locals began raising concerns about the health and safety of such an object - many calling it a monstrosity - the city decided to do away with it. Unfortunately, imbued with a small fraction of each person who contributed, it has gained sentience and waits for it’s chance to strike back at the populace...
