Special Abilities

Acid (Ex) A gelatinous cube’s acid does not harm metal or stone.

Bodiless Casting (Su) A mythic sorcerous cube can spend one use of its mythic power to ignore either the verbal or somatic component of a spell that it casts, or it can spend two uses of its mythic power to ignore both. This does not increase the level of the spell or its casting time.

Command Oozes (Su) A mythic sorcerous cube can compel the obedience of other oozes as though it was using the Command Undead feat to control undead (DC 20 Will negates), issuing its commands empathically rather than requiring spoken commands. It may use this ability up to 9/day, though it may control only 14 Hit Dice of oozes at a time. Gelatinous cubes count as only half their actual number of Hit Dice when determining how many can be controlled.

Mind Meld (Sp) A mythic sorcerous cube can read the thoughts of any creature it has engulfed as a free action, as if using detect thoughts (DC 20 Will negates), and as a full-round action the cube can ask an engulfed creature a single question as if interrogating a corpse with speak with dead (DC 21 Will negates). As a full-round action, a mythic sorcerous cube can also spend one use of its mythic power to use one of the following spell-like abilities on an engulfed creature: charm monster (DC 22), dream (DC 23), modify memory (DC 22), or suggestion (DC 21).

Sorcerous Origin (Ex) Mythic sorcerous cubes have the spellcasting ability and class skills of 10th-level sorcerers. They gain bloodline spells and other class abilities as per the bloodline they possessed in life, usually the aberrant, protean, ooze, or starsoul bloodlines. A mythic sorcerous cube with the protean bloodline, like the one above, typically knows the following mythic spells: color spray, confusion, dimension door, fireball, fly, gaseous form, magic missile, stinking cloud. This modifies the spellcasting ability of a non-mythic sorcerous cube.

Spell Absorption (Su) When a spell fails to overcome a mythic sorcerous cube’s spell resistance, it can spend one use of its mythic power as an immediate action to absorb the spell into itself. It can use the spell’s energy to heal 1d4 hit points per level of the spell. If the spell is a 5th-level or lower-level spell on the sorcerous/wizard list, the mythic sorcerous cube can absorb knowledge of that spell for 1 minute, allowing it to cast that spell using its own spell slots. If it uses the stolen spell against its original caster, the mythic sorcerous cube increases the spell’s caster level and save DC by 2.

Suspended Magic (Ex) A mythic sorcerous cube can suspend any number of rods, staves, or wands within its gelatinous mass simultaneously and can activate one such item per round as a standard action. As long as a staff or wand has at least one charge remaining, it is unaffected by the cube’s acid regardless of its material composition. A mythic sorcerous cube can also benefit from up to two magical rings suspended within its body.

Transparent (Ex) Due to its lack of coloration, a mythic sorcerous cube is difficult to discern. A DC 20 Perception check is required to notice a motionless mythic gelatinous cube. Any creature that fails to notice a mythic gelatinous cube and walks into it is automatically engulfed.
