Creatures in the area take 2d8 fire damage (DC 17 basic Reflex save), and small unattended flames (such as torches) are extinguished.

Breath Weapon [two-actions] (arcane, fire) The steam mephit spits a cloud of steam in a 15-foot cone that deals 2d6 fire damage to each creature within the area (DC 17 basic Reflex save). The steam mephit can’t use Breath Weapon again for 1d4 rounds.


These brash and arrogant creatures are among the more energetic mephits. They are quick to nominate themselves the leaders of any group, barking out orders in shrill, high-pitched voices and insisting on having everything done their way. Even when they aren’t bossing others around, the constant hiss of steam escaping from their pores ensures that there is never a quiet moment.
