Noxious Burst [two-actions] Toxic materials and churning rubbish within the filth fire’s body explode in one of three ways. The filth fire chooses the effect, but it can’t make the same choice twice in a row.

  • Fiery Beam (evocation, fire, primal) The filth fire expels a 30-foot line of flame that deals 3d6 fire damage with a DC 21 basic Reflex save.
  • Shrapnel Blast (evocation, primal) The filth fire shoots jagged rubbish out in a 5-foot emanation that deals 2d12 piercing damage with a DC 21 basic Reflex save.
  • Toxic Fumes (evocation, poison, primal) The filth fire belches a 15-foot cone of toxic smoke that deals 2d6 poison damage (DC 21 basic Fortitude save). A creature that fails is also sickened 1 (or sickened 2 on a critical failure).


These creatures look like roiling clouds of black smoke churning above a mound of burning refuse. Leering faces form and fade in the smoke above, while the burning trash writhes in spasmodic lurches, obviously alive.
