Hellfire is a rare flame created by extracting energy from a tortured soul. Found almost exclusively in the Nine Hells’ deepest reaches, these vile flames burn uncontrollably in areas where souls are gathered.
Effect: Whenever a creature that is not a devil enters a square containing hellfire or starts its turn there, it takes ongoing 5 fire and psychic damage per tier (save ends). If the creature is bloodied, the damage increases by 5. In addition, whenever a creature takes ongoing damage from hellfire, the creature cannot take opportunity actions or immediate actions until the start of its next turn.
Usage: Hellfire is common to the Nine Hells and rare elsewhere. Diabolists and those in service to Mephistopheles might know how to create hellfire and use it to ward their lairs.
