The stone of internal fire is a warforged embedded component that resembles a rust-hued and highly-polished stone. It is egg-shaped and warm to the touch. The stone is designed to be swallowed by the warforged, becoming incorporated into the warforged internal composition thereafter. Once internalized, the stone can be activated with a command word, allowing for super-heated fog to come spewing out of the warforged's mouth.
3rd Edition MechanicsEdit
When activated, the stone of internal fire takes 5 rounds to trigger. During these five rounds, both the stone and the warforged become incredibly hot. After 5 rounds, fog erupts from the warforged's mouth like the fog cloud spell but with additional properties. Any creature adjacent to the warforged while the stone is active takes 1d4 points of fire damage each round they stay adjacent. A creature that touches the warforged or is touched by the warforged takes 2d4 points of damage. this damage stacks with the damage from the fog.
The stone, however, also has drawbacks. Each round the stone is active, the warforged takes 1d4 points of fire damage. In addition, the warforged must make a DC 15 Fortitude check each round, or any flammable object worn, held, or carried by the warforged bursts into flames.
