Special Traits

  • Heated Body. A creature that touches the large fire crab or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 14 (4d6) fire damage.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The large fire crab makes two claw attacks
  • Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (1d12 + 6) bludgeoning damage plus 14 (4d6) fire damage. If both claw attacks hit in the same turn and the target is huge sized or smaller, target is grappled (escape DC 16). While grappled, a target takes 14 (4d6) fire damage at the start of its turn. The fire crab can only grapple one target at a time and cannot perform a claw attack while grappling a target.
