A hideous molten stone statue come to life, with flames licking across its body.

“Their innumerable sculptures of demons and dragons assumed a lugubrious aspect. The restless light of the flame made them move to the eye. There were griffins which had the air of laughing, gargoyles which one fancied one heard yelping, salamanders which puffed at the fire, tarasques which sneezed in the smoke. And among the monsters thus roused from their sleep of stone by this flame, by this noise, there was one who walked about, and who was seen, from time to time, to pass across the glowing face of the pile, like a bat in front of a candle.”
-Victor Hugo, _The Hunchback of Notre-Dame_, 10, ch. IV. 1831.

Useful Info

Molten gargoyles are the rarest of the gargoyle types. They aren't much stronger than a standard gargoyle, but their attacks inflict additional fire damage, and their Bolt of Magma can hurt. They can be found in Gehenna, the Desolation of Salt, some volcano layouts, and certain fire-themed vaults.


Spell set I
Slot1 Bolt of Magma (3d15) Natural flag
