Breath Weapon (Su)

Each type of mephit can unleash a particular breath weapon every 4 rounds as a standard action. The DC is Constitution-based and includes a +1 racial bonus.

The breath weapon of a steam mephit is a cone of steam that deals 1d4 fire damage. The scalding water also causes living creatures to be sickened for 3 rounds. A Reflex save halves the damage and negates the sickened effect.

Boiling Rain (Su)

Once per day a steam mephit can create a rainstorm of boiling water in a 20-foot-square area. Living creatures within the area take 2d6 points of fire damage (Fortitude DC 14 half; caster level 6th). This ability is the equivalent of a 2nd-level spell.


Environment any (elemental planes)
Organization solitary, pair, gang (3–6), mob (7–12)
Treasure standard

Steam mephits are commonly found on the Plane of Fire. These mephits are overconfident and brash.
