A monster with darkvision can see perfectly well in areas of darkness and dim light, though such vision is in black and white only. Some forms of magical darkness, such as a 4th-level Darkness spell, block normal darkvision. A monster with Greater Darkvision, however, can see through even these forms of magical darkness.

Steam Vision

The steam mephit ignores the Concealed condition from mist and steam.

Fast Healing 2 (in boiling water or steam)

A monster with this ability regains the given number of Hit Points each round at the beginning of its turn.

Boiling Rain Two Actions (arcane, conjuration, fire, water)

Frequency once per day

Effect The scalding mephit calls down a rain boiling water that surrounds them in a 10-foot emanation. Creatures in the area take 2d8+3 fire damage (DC 18 basic reflex save), and small unattended flames (such as torches) are extinguished.

Breath Weapon Two Actions (arcane, fire)

The scalding mephit spits a cloud of steam in a 15-foot cone that deals 3d6 fire damage to each creature within the area (DC 18 basic reflex save).

The scalding mephit can't use Breath Weapon again for 1d4 rounds.

Arcane Innate Spells (DC 18, +10 to hit)

2nd Level: Obscuring Mist

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.



This rarity indicates that a rules element is very difficult to find in the game world. A rare feat, spell, item or the like is available to players only if the GM decides to include it in the game, typically through discovery during play. Creatures with this trait are rare. They typically can't be summoned. The DC of Recall Knowledge checks related to these creatures is increased by 5.


Effects with the fire trait deal fire damage or either conjure or manipulate fire. Those that manipulate fire have no effect in an area without fire. Creatures with this trait consist primarily of fire or have a magical connection to that element.


Effects with the water trait either manipulate or conjure water. Those that manipulate water have no effect in an area without water. Creatures with this trait consist primarily of water or have a magical connection to the element.
