General Rules: Monsters - Ignan Creature (Template)

Ignan Creature (from the Manual of the Planes)

Ignan creatures dwell in the Elemental Plane of Fire. They have the same general form as material beings but are bathed in flame, with hair and fur replaced with fire and scaled or armored portions replaced with blackened ash and charcoal. Their eyes glow with blue flames.

"Ignan" is a template that can be added to any corporeal creature of the following base types: Aberration, animal, beast, magical beast, plant, or vermin. The creature's type changes to "elemental (fire)". It uses all the base creature's statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

Hit Dice: Change to d8.

Speed: Same as the base creature.

Armor Class: Same as the base creature.

Attacks: Same as the base creature.

Damage: Same as the base creature.

Special Attacks: An ignan creature retains all the special abilities of the base creature and also gains the following ones:
  • Heat (Ex): In addition to the damage from their attacks, ignan creatures deal additional fire damage with their natural weapons (including claw, bite, slam, or tail attacks). The amount of damage depends o the Hit Die total of the creature (see the table below).
  • Burn (Ex): Those hit by the natural weapons of an ignan creature must succeed at a Reflex save or catch fire. The flame burns for 1d4 rounds(see Catching Fire in Chapter 3 of the Dungeon Master's Guide). The save DC is equal to 7 + the ignan creature's Hit Die total.
