A formless mass of ancient fire, bound by heat and malevolence. The slightest disturbance will destroy the bonds holding it together and unleash a fire storm. It longs for that release, yet seems reluctant to move while being observed.

Useful Info

Creeping infernos are fragile entities that explode into Fire Storms (8d8.25 damage) when killed. They are found naturally in Gehenna, or created by stokers.

They move like lurking horrors. Every turn, if a creeping inferno is in your line of sight, it can only move if distance <= 1d(LOS_range + 1) - 1.[1] So when encountered at the edge of LOS, it is likely to not move, but the closer you get, the more likely it is to charge at you.

Tips & Tricks

  • Just about any attack, such as javelins or any number of spells, will take one out.


  • Creeping infernos were added in 0.28.
