Like a fire elemental, a bomb is both fast and agile, and the merest touch from its fiery body is enough to set most materials aflame. Unlike a fire elemental though, as an Outsider, a Bomb can enter water or other non-flammable liquid without suffering ill effect. Bombs vary in size from have a width of 2-4 feet and generally have negligible weight. Bombs generally speak Ignan and have hot tempered, foul personalities.


A Bomb generally likes to reserve its burning hands attack for only the most annoying and difficult opponents, instead preferring to use its bite and Body Blow attacks freely but will always act as directed by the Summoner.

Special Attacks[edit]

Burn (Ex): A Bomb's bite attack deals piercing damage plus fire damage from the Bomb's flaming body. Those hit by a Bomb's bite attack also must succeed on a Reflex save or catch on fire. The flame burns for 1d3 rounds, and the save DC is 14. A burning creature can take a move action to put out the flame; the save DC is Constitution-based. Creatures hitting a Bomb with natural weapons or unarmed attacks take fire damage as though hit by the Bomb's attack, and also catch on fire unless they succeed on a Reflex save.

Body Blow (Ex): In place of their standard bite attack, a Bomb may instead make a "body blow" attack. This is resolved as an overrun / trample attack. To do so, a Bomb spins in place before flying at its run speed of 200 ft for the round but with poor maneuverability for the purpose of this attack and hurls itself at its target. If successful, the target takes 2d6 points of fire damage. Regardless of whether the attack was successful or not, the Bomb uses his remaining movement, generally to return to the area which he started the round in. A Bomb still provokes attacks of opportunity for its movement.

Spell-like Abilities: 3/day Burning Hands (DC 12). Caster level is equal to the Summoner's class level (minimum of 1st). The save DC is Charisma based.

Grow (Su): Each time a Bomb is struck with a physical attack it absorbs some of that energy and grows slightly in size. Every 2 hits cause it to grow 1 size category, from Small to Medium and then Medium to Large, etc. For every size category it grows, it gains +1d8 bonus damage on its next Self-Destruct attack and takes a -1 size penalty to AC and gains +1 natural AC bonus (keeping its normal AC the same).


Self-Destruct (Su): When used, the Bomb will attempt to do its Self-Destruct attack. When using its Self-Destruct attack, a Bomb will target the last person who successfully struck it for damage. The Bomb will take a move action to get as close to the target of the attack as possible, up to adjacent if such movement is possible, and will then explode in a 15 ft radius, dealing 4d8 + (summoner's level X 3) fire damage to any creature within 15 feet. Using Self-Destruct dismisses the Bomb immediately upon exploding.
