The Ert Telden is a fish just over 1 meter long, which lives in backwaters, marshes and swamps. It has a unique self-destructive defense mechanism. When removed from water, it starts to burn with such intense heat that all creatures within 30 meters of the fish sustain 5 dice (d6) of heat damage on the first melee turn. On the second melee turn out of water, the Ert Telden explodes in flames, doing 10 dice of damage to all beings in range. It is sometimes captured and used as a weapon by certain tribes, who keep the Ert Telden in holding pools inside their walled village, and fling them over the walls with catapults at would-be attackers.
