Lair

The lair of the Ragecaster is a pit of boiling magma created as a physical embodiment of his anger. It flows through the cavern in swirling currents causing any that enter to suffer sever heat exhaustion.

On initiative 20, losing any ties, a creature who has spent the previous round in the cavern must make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or suffer a level of exhaustion. The immense heat is also physically damaging. Any creature that starts their turn in the Ragecaster’s lair is dealt 7 (2d6) fire damage.

  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) bludgeoning damage and 14 (4d6) fire damage.
  • Ragecaster Staff. Choose one spell from those listed on the staff. Deduct the charges from the staff when using this attack. Once the staff has expended all of its charges it ceases to function.
  • Lava Wave (recharge 5-6). The Ragecaster ushers a wave of lava forth in a 25ft. cone. Any creature caught in the cone must make a DC 19 Dexterity save or take 82 (15d10) fire damage and ignites in flames taking 5 (1d10) fire damage each round at the start of their turn until they spend an action to put themselves out. On a success they take half damage and do not ignite in flames.

Any creature caught in the path must make a DC 19 Dexterity saving throw or take 44 (8d10) fire damage and ignite in flames taking 5 (1d10) fire damage each round at the start of their turn until they spend an action to put themselves out. On a success they take half damage and do not ignite in flames.

About

This monstrosity was once a regular human. Obsession with creating the perfect magic item drove his life to ruin.

Upon presenting his creation to the world, a flaw was quickly pointed out. The crowd began to laugh at his work. This caused him to boil over with a blinding rage. He then turned his creation on the crowd, expending every spell he could.

Once his rage subsided, there were none left standing. He realized he could never be a part of this world and disappeared into the Fey Wilds where the magic of that land changed him into a large beastial form fueled by his wild raging emotions.
