Acid, Ooze, or Slime Domain

Post by Kenji » Sun Jul 11, 2021 12:47 am

Slime domain is present in the source materials (Spell Compendium 280)
Ooze domain is present in the source materials (Fiendish Codex I 89-90)
Acid domain is homebrew

Vanilla does not have a strref tlk entry for Slime
Vanilla does have strref tlk entries for Ooze and Acid

Random statistics that totally shouldn't affect your opinion nor should they be recognized as anything official or valid statistics:
"Acid Domain D&D" has the most Google results out of all 3 (615,000) → likely due to Acidic Domain in Chemistry
"Slime Domain D&D" has the second most Google results out of all 3 (354,000)
"Ooze Domain D&D" has 271,000 Google results

On official Arelith discord, searches resulted in the following numbers:
56+ pages of messages that included "Acid"
37+ pages of messages that included "Ooze"
22+ pages of messages that included "Slime"

I'm abstaining from voting for now.

Considering there's an Ooze stream and an Oozemaster in Anundor I think Ooze clerics of Ghaunadaur and whoever could have their own domain separate from acid (maybe even getting the ooze stream at some point.) Slime or ooze seem interchangeable to me, I know there's technical differences but it's close enough you could call the domain either (or both.)

I'm not sure and too lazy to check what clerics specifically take acid. I mean, take acid domain, which would want that portfolio instead of "ooze and slime" or whatever. Though I'm sure ooze clerics do enjoy their hallucinogens.

Back when I made Andunor (A long time ago) I made the Ooozemaster because I envisioned a new class, a variant of Palemaster, where one experiments on oneself to become part slime, this gaining the same damage resistances as Palemaster, and instead of summoning various undead as one climbs in levels, the PC can call upon ever more powerful slimes. I'd made the Slime Temple too, and kind of had a thing for it then - it's more thematic for the UD, and, frankly, the edginess factor with Palemaster was getting tired, even then.

Anyway, I was told then that an Ooozemaster class variant of Palemaster was way too ambitious. But then? That was a different time, when we didn't have the development capabiltiies we do today.

The domain name will be changed to Ooze for the time being since I did find a reference that sourced Ooze Domain as one of the official contents:
https://forums.giantitp.com/showthread. ... n-List-3-5

Also, I should mention that...
Acid and Ooze are available as strref strings in vanilla tlk
Slime is not available and will therefore take up a precious tlk slot

Hence my decision to go for the Ooze domain instead of Slime.
