Mimics speak Common.
A mimic often surprises the unsuspecting adventurer, lashing
out with a heavy pseudopod. Mimics are smart enough to avoid
fights to the death by extorting treasure or food from a party.
Adhesive (Ex): A mimic exudes a thick slime that acts as a
powerful adhesive, holding fast any creatures or items touching
it. An adhesive-covered mimic automatically grapples any creature
it hits with its slam attack. Opponents so grappled cannot get
free while the mimic is alive without removing the adhesive
first. A mimic makes one automatic slam attack each round against
any creature stuck to it. A weapon that strikes an
adhesive-coated mimic is also stuck fast unless the wielder
succeeds at a Reflex save (DC 16). A successful Strength check
(DC 16) is needed to pry it off. Strong alcohol dissolves the
adhesive. A pint of wine or a similar liquid weakens it, but the
mimic still has a +4 bonus to grapple checks. A mimic can
dissolve its adhesive at will, and the substance breaks down 5
rounds after the creature dies.
Mimic Shape (Ex): A mimic can assume the general shape of any
object that fills roughly 150 cubic feet (5 feet by 5 feet by 6
feet), such as a massive chest, a stout bed, or a wide door
frame. The creature cannot substantially alter its size, though.
A mimic's body is hard and has a rough texture, no matter
what appearance it might present. Anyone who examines the mimic
can detect the ruse with a successful Spot check opposed by the
mimic's Disguise check. Of course, by this time it is
generally far too late.
