Cheese Monster

This grotesque creature looks across between a large slug and a three-legged toad. Its disproportionately large maw is lined with innumerable needle-like teeth.

Gobble (Su)

A Cheese Monster is able to consume twice its own weight in cheese (or other dairy products) up to four times a day. This is the equivalent of a full round action, in which the object being gobbled is held firmly by the Cheese Monster so that it may eat as quickly as possible. Any attempt to remove the target dairy item at this point initiates an opposed grapple. Unopposed, fully twice the Cheese Monster's weight (if available, otherwise all) is consumed.

Scent Dairy (Ex)

This ability functions much as the scent ability, except that the range is 90 feet and the Cheese Monster can use it exclusively to sense dairy products. Dairy products in air-tight containers are not detected, but all others are including milk produced in mammalian nursing.


The Cheese Monster has a tail equal in length to its body, tipped with a venomous stinger. In the wild it will sting a nursing animal, so that it may suckle without encountering resistance. A stung creature is stunned for 1d6 rounds (Fortitude save DC 14.)

Note that Tiny or smaller creatures become Paralysed rather than Stunned.
