  • Death Burst. When the lavafolk dies, it explodes in a burst of fire and magma. Each creature within 10 feet of it must make a DC 11 Dexterity saving throw, taking 7 (2d6) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Flammable objects that aren’t being worn or carried in that area are ignited.
  • Freeze. If the lavafolk takes cold damage, it partially freezes; its speed is reduced by 20 feet until the end of its next turn.
  • Ignited Illumination. As a bonus action, the lavafolk can set itself ablaze or extinguish its flames. While ablaze, the lavafolk sheds bright light in a 10-foot radius and dim light for an additional 10 feet.


  • Burning Touch. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (2d6) fire damage. If the target is a creature or a flammable object, it ignites. Until a creature takes an action to douse the fire, the target takes 3 (1d6) fire damage at the end of each of its turns.


This rough humanoid blackened exterior crackles with flames.

Lavafolk live on the island of Lavaland and don’t venture further, for good reason. Surrounded by water, they turn into basalt statues if they plunge into its depths.

Unfortunately, they make their homes in active volcanoes and it is not uncommon for their young to be flung far from the island. The lucky ones land on boats, although the captains may not think so.

Say What? Lavafolk do not speak the Common tongue, which makes relations heated at best.
