Inflammable servants are quasi-intelligent minions from the elemental plane of fire that rarely roam beyond their own plane unless summoned by a petty god to do their bidding. They are often used by the gods to deliver death threats to one another.

They can perform only one major task at a time and will attempt to complete that task at all costs. Inflammable servants that fail or are thwarted in their missions immediately die in a fiery explosion equal to 3 fireball spells.

On the plane of fire, Inflammable Servants rarely take visible form, but on the material plane, they appear as avenging angels with feet of flame and eagle-like wings. Their fierce countenance belies their nature, as they rarely attack unprovoked and will go out of their way to avoid conflict as they attempt to complete their tasks.

Although armed with both swords of flame and bows of fire (normal damage for each +2 fire damage), they prefer to attack with a piercing stare, which acts as a 2x magic missile spell. They are immune to normal weapons and fire-based attacks.

Inflammable Servants cannot speak to mortals, being under binding contracts to the petty gods, even though they are fluent in a multitude of magical languages. They cannot be summoned by normal summoning spells and will only take directions from the petty gods themselves.

They hate dwarves for some unknown reason.

Note: I'll have another write-up or two using this same illustration in the next day or so.
