Fire skeletons are undead human skeletons whose bone structure includes a high proportion of elemental fire. Their bones have a reddish tint to them and an aura of flame appears around them when they are in combat. They have the ability to shoot a sheet of flame from their hands. They are resistant to fire-based attacks and are slightly more difficult for clerics to turn, as they are turned as zombies.

COMBAT: Fire skeletons are similar to other undead skeleton in combat. They do get two attacks per round, one strike with each hand,
as they are not armed with weapons (weapons interfere with their burning hands ability).

BURNING HANDS: A fire skeleton is able to shoot a sheet of flame from its outstretched hands twice per day. This sheet of flame extends 15' feet and is 10' wide. Fire skeletons are immune to the effects of this attack from other fire skeletons.

FIRE RESISTANCE: Fire skeletons are immune to effects of nonmagical fires and gain a +2 to their saving throws versus fire based magical attacks.

SLEEP/CHARM IMMUNITY: Like other forms of undead creatures, fire skeletons are immune to sleep and charm spells.

  2. But they have no resistance to the mighty faith of Adzeer Mattui who will smite them as he laughs with joy.
