ECOLOGY

Organization solitary, pair, or cluster (3-5)

Salamanders are serpentine creatures from the Plane of Fire. They are wicked and cruel, but also well known for their expert craftsmanship for weapons and armor.

As such, they are sought out by devils, efreet, and other evil beings to commission powerful weapons for their armies.

Salamanders love to dwell within fiery places, such as flaming pits or lava pools. They tolerate cooler places, but cannot abide the cold. The heat from a salamander’s body transfers to any metallic weapons it carries, leaving their enemies burnt after any combat.

The lair of a salamander is always considered to be Extreme Heat. They can tolerate being in placed of lower temperatures, but only when forced; and they are even more disagreeable than normal when in such cooler areas.

Noble salamanders are powerful taskmasters who treat their people like slaves at the forges. They possess a number of fiery powers that – while useless against their own kind – are deadly against mortal foes.
