Flame Breath (Recharge 5-6). The trumpeter spews out flames in a 10-ft. cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw, taking 12 (3d8) fire damage on a failed save or half as much on a successful one.
The Flaming Tundra's only bird, the devil's trumpeter is a beautiful sight. Covered in dazzling white feathers with bright red legs and fiery orange eyes that look like glowing jewels, despite its fiend-esque name, the devil's trumpeter's true species is a swan. In addition to the usual Flaming Tundra creature's gas sac that allows fire breath, the trumpeter's beak is perpetually fueled by heated gas, causing it to glow orange-yellow with heat. It uses this to melt and chip away at the thick layers of ice that cover the Tundra's lakes and rivers in search of its favorite food, the drifting geysers. In areas where there are less weeds to eat, the devil's trumpeter will target Flaming Tundra cod as prey; in this way, the trumpeter regulates both the cod's population and the drifting geyser. As it can fly even through tough blizzards, the devil's trumpeter would rather flee a predator than fight, but if inclined to attack, it will viciously jab with its heated beak and blast flames.
