Most outsiders think that the plane of fire is the most inhospitable place possible. The existence of plants or natural beings seems alien to most at first, but in reality, the plane of fire has a diversity of flora (and ecosystems!). In this volume, I will provide a brief overview of the different ecosystems found in the plane of fire, the flora found in each of them, and entities inextricably linked to the plane of fire's natural wonders.
Chapeter 3: Plane of fire creatures
As one of the few creatures in the plane of fire able to traverse the shadow fire, the ember leshies are able to take care of any plant in the plane of fire, thanks to their fire immunity and absence of cold vulnerability.
It is unclear how the fire leshies first came into existence. Some scholars believe that the practice was brought on from outsiders from the material plane. Others believe ember leshies are not leshies at all, but rather a creature that hosts the spirits of fire inside of them. I am not sure either way, but I lean towards the first theory, seeing how it's mostly druids who create a body for these creatures to inhabit, and druids who call forth the spirits into these small, molten bodies.
Ember leshies are normally found in the uninhabited portions of the plane of fire, although a few people have managed to convince some ember leshies to come into the cities to manage brass orchid gardens. Wherever they are found, they are typically quite protective of their area, and will try to convince intruders to leave. It is unclear how ember leshies decide whether one is intruding in their territory, but if you find yourself being asked to leave, you better listen to them.
Whenever a fire leshy uses one of its cold attacks, its molten body hardens on the outside creating slag. It takes 31 days for the slag scar to start disappearing and even longer for the slag to fall from their body. An ember leshy who becomes fully covered by slag dies.
Once a quiet grippli town, it is now the site of an azer encampment and a menagerie of strange plants and animals.
