A fire-infused troll knows that acid is its worst enemy, so it tends to focus on foes not wielding weapons—especially those holding glass or ceramic vials. It typically breathes flame to set the battleground alight, granting it greater mobility and healing.
Fire-infused creatures’ bodies gain some of the qualities of elementals. Each time a fire-infused creature is exposed to a poison, paralysis, sleep, or stunning e?ect, it has a 25% chance to avoid it. In addition, there is a 25% chance that a sneak attack or critical hit deals no extra damage.
A fire-infused creature regains 1 hit point for each full round that it remains in contact with fire. When struck by a magical fire effect, the fire-infused creature heals 1 point of damage per 10 points of damage that the fire effect would otherwise deal.
A fire-infused creature can climb an object on fire as though it had a climb speed equal to its highest speed. Furthermore, it can fly at its highest speed with perfect maneuverability so long as it remains in contact with fire, and it can walk on flames at its highest speed, as though walking on air via the air walk spell.
Environment Cold mountains
Organization Solitary, pair, or gang (3–4)
A fire-infused troll can easily be recognized by its bright orange and yellow skin. Its hair is red in youth but becomes a smoky gray with age. A fire-infused troll stoops less than a normal troll, and its shoulders are less broad, but it possesses surprising agility.
