Notes Phoenix lives in the hottest of deserts, nobody has seen more than one in existence. Every hundred years it builds itself a nest from cypress blocks and rare ingredients that are necessary for the rebirth and renews itself in a conflagration of fire of intensity 5. Fire cultists have thruout the history been looking for the phoenix nest and often found it. They consider the phoenix a holy beast and the renewal the holiest of events. If the nest is found before renewal they start to form a Burning Man event nearby and will protect the beast against any unholy intruders whether they are knowledge seekers, protagonist against the fire cults or ones who seek immortality or a unique plaything for their masters. Before the conflagration phoenix might be vulnerable to water (in very, very large quantities) - very large water elementals might be able to intimidate phoenix. Heat and fire caused by phoenix will ignite anything flammable in 1d2 rounds - burning all the leather straps, wooden parts of weapons and cause heat and fire damage 2d6 to 1d4+1 hit locations. All fire damage is protected against only by magic. Rebirth on fiery pyre of material in 1d10 years if killed.
