Heated Body. A creature that touches the remorhaz or hits it with a melee attack while within 1 meter of it takes 10 (3d6) fire damage.

Spellcasting. The remorhaz uses Primal (Wis) to cast spells (spell save Difficulty 12, +3 to hit with spell attacks). It has 11 mana, a mana limit of 2, regains all expended mana when it finishes a long rest, and regains half its total mana when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following spells:

Cantrips (at will, 14th-level spellcaster): cauterize wound, control flames, produce flame

1 mana: ash fall, burning hands, continual flame, fiery rebuke, flaming weapon, immolation, protection from fire, pyrotechnics, rising phoenix, scorching bolts, searing burst, searing strike

2 mana: animate flames, fireball, flame bane, flaming sphere, heat metal, incendiary cloud, minute meteors, molten upheaval, wall of fire

Actions (2)

Bite (1/turn). Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 2 m. Hit: 40 (6d10 + 7) piercing damage plus 10 (3d6) fire damage. If the target is a creature, it is grappled (escape Difficulty 10). Until this grapple ends, the target is restrained, and the remorhaz can’t bite another target.

Swallow (1/turn). The remorhaz makes a bite attack against a Large or smaller creature it is grappling. If the attack hits, the creature takes the bite’s damage, it is swallowed, and the grapple ends. While swallowed, the creature is blinded and restrained, it has total cover against attacks and other effects outside the remorhaz and it takes 21 (6d6) acid damage at the start of each of its turns. The remorhaz can have only one Large creature (or 2 Medium, 3 Small, and 5 Tiny) creature swallowed at a time.

While the remorhaz isn’t incapacitated, it can regurgitate all swallowed creatures at any time (no action required) in a space within 1 meter of it. The creature exits prone.

If the remorhaz takes 30 damage or more on a single turn from the swallowed creatures, the remorhaz must succeed on a Difficulty 25 Fortitude saving throw at the end of that turn or regurgitate the creature, which falls prone in a space within 1 meter of the remorhaz. If the remorhaz dies, a swallowed creature is no longer restrained by it and can escape from the corpse by using 4 meters of movement, exiting prone.

Once a creature is no longer swallowed, its armor or natural armor is corroded 2 until the end of the remorhaz’s next turn or until the end of the round if the remorhaz is dead.

Spells

As an action, you sear the wounds of a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw. If the creature is at full health, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it takes 1d6 fire damage and can’t regain health until the end of its next turn. If the creature is alive and has 0 health, it becomes stable. If the creature is currently bleeding, the bleeding stops.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

At higher levels

You can increase this spell’s damage by 1d6 when you reach 9th level (2d6) and 17th level (3d6).

As an action, you choose nonmagical flame that you can see within 10 meters and that fits within a 1-meter cube. You affect it in one of the following ways:

  • You expand the flame 1 meter in one direction, provided that wood or other fuel is present in the new location.
  • You reduce the flames on any object within the cube. If you use this twice, you can extinguish the flames on an object.
  • You reduce the burning condition by 1 for a burning creature in the cube.
  • You cause the flames on a burning creature in the cube to burn a bit brighter. The creature takes 1d6 fire damage.
  • You double or halve the area of bright light and dim light cast by the flame, change its color, or both. The change lasts for 1 hour.
  • You cause simple shapes—such as the vague form of a creature, an inanimate object, or a location—to appear within the flames and animate as you like. The shapes last for 1 hour.

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can have up to three of its non-instantaneous effects active at a time, and you can dismiss such an effect on your turn (no action required).

This spell’s damage increases by 1d6 when you reach 9th level (2d6) and 17th level (3d6).

On a hit, it takes 1d8 fire damage.

On a critical hit, it takes twice as much damage.

On a miss by 4 or less, it takes half as much damage.

Fireworks. The target explodes with a dazzling display of colors. Each creature in a sphere twice as big as normal centered on the target must succeed on a Fortitude saving throw or become blinded and deafened until the end of your next turn.

Smoke. Thick black smoke spreads out from the target in a sphere twice as big as normal, moving around corners. The area of the smoke is heavily obscured. The smoke persists for 1 minute or until a strong wind (at least 30 kilometers per hour) disperses it.

As two actions, you call forth a fire elemental which appears in an unoccupied space that you can see within 10 meters. The elemental is a fire elemental companion, using 2 resources. The creature has no mana or stamina dice, but you can infuse it with mana, psi, or stamina dice by expending mana up to your mana limit or psi up to double your mana limit. For each mana or 2 psi you expend, the elemental gains 1 mana or 2 stamina dice. The elemental is friendly to you and your companions, and it disappears when it drops to 0 health or when the spell ends.

When you cast the spell—and once on on each of your turns thereafter as an action—you can mentally command any creature you animated with this spell if the creature is within 50 meters of you (if you control multiple creatures, you can command any or all of them at the same time, issuing the same command to each one). You decide what actions the creature will take and where it will move during its next turn, or you can issue a general command, such as to guard a particular chamber or corridor. If you issue no commands, the creature only defends itself against hostile creatures. Once given an order, the creature continues to follow it until its task is complete.

When the spell ends, either because your concentration is broken or because you decide to end it, the bead explodes.

    If the glowing bead is touched before the interval has expired, the creature touching it must make a Reflex saving throw.
