Skin a pyrothag hide
Other glowing violet mote of essence
The pyrothag is a huge creature, towering over the tallest of giantmen.  Scorched black by the heat of its environment, its thick skin protects it from blows and the hostile lava flows.  The most striking thing aside from its size, is the lack of facial features.  A smooth face matching its smooth black skin leaves one wondering how such a thing could have evolved.

Other information

Their massive glaes club is a modified quarterstaff and weighs approximately 95 lbs.

If their club attack misses you, there is a chance it will strike the ground sending shards flying at every player in the room. These shards are dodgeable, but are potentially lethal if they hit you.

Example text:

A clean miss.
A massive pyrothag smashes its massive club into the ground, spraying the area with shards of razor-edged rock!
You barely duck out of the way, as a shard of rock comes flying at you!

Pyrothags are weak against vibration attacks and flares, and will suffer from an additional crit cycle whenever damaged is received from a vibration source, such as a bard's sonic weapon flares.
