    This is a bush, so I think it counts. If that is not a reason, then it is because it is created by Druids, mostly as forest protectors.

    Description/background/characteristics

    A shrub stands in your path. It is aight with bright, red flames that char its black, burnt skin. The bush's leaves are no longer green, but instead a sickly brown. Its bright yellow eyes make you feel like your soul is being stared into, and a terrifying moan emerges from its mouth, which radiates the heat of the fires of Hell.

    This is a tree that has been made into a guardian by a druid. Lawful druids use these as law enforcers to donate to big cities that are nearby the forests. Good and True Neutral druids use these as protecters of their forest. Evil druids corrupt these beings to kill their enemies. Chaotic druids use them for their own, spontaneous puproses. They are peaceful if left alone, but if sent to attack or are disturbed, they become agressive, tenacious, and territorial.

    Combat

    These creatures, if found in groups, first concentrate on setting everybody on fire first. With their opponents disabled, bodies burning and weapons heated, they proceed to attack with their slams and bite.

    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
