Breath Weapon [two-actions] (evocation, fire, primal) The tor linnorm expels a 60- foot cone of flame and ash dealing 20d6 fire damage to creatures within the area (DC 46 basic Reflex save). At the start of the tor linnorm’s next turn, the area affected by the breath weapon is covered in thick, scorching smoke that burns both the lungs and eyes, dealing an additional 10d6 fire damage to all creatures in the area (DC 46 basic Reflex save). A creature that spends an entire round in the smoke with open eyes must succeed at a DC 44 Fortitude save or is blinded for 1 minute. The smoke dissipates after 1 minute; in strong winds, the smoke dissipates in 5 rounds, and in more powerful winds, it may clear even more quickly. The tor linnorm can’t use Breath Weapon again for 1d4 rounds.

Constrict [one-action] 3d6+21 bludgeoning, DC 46

Slashing Claws [one-action] A tor linnorm makes four Strikes with its claws, each against a different target. These attacks count toward the tor linnorm’s multiple attack penalty, but the multiple attack penalty doesn’t increase until after the tor linnorm makes all its attacks.

Tor Linnorm Venom (fire, injury, poison); Saving Throw DC 44 Fortitude; Maximum Duration 10 rounds; Stage 1 8d6 fire damage and drained 1; Stage 2 12d6 fire damage and drained 2.


Tor linnorms dwell in the tallest volcanic mountains, either within natural formed caverns or within molten craters. A tor linnorm’s temper can be as hot and destructive as the magma the creature resembles.
