Monsters: Salamanders

Monsters: Salamanders

Salamanders are serpentine outsiders from the Elemental Plane of Fire with a penchant for smithing. There are two species - flamebrothers and average salamanders, and the average salamanders sometimes become noble, gaining extra size, strength, and magical abilities.
