This fire-lizard has enhanced its protective scales with a shell of volcanic rock. Since its only natural predator is presumably the lava lamprey, this is probably going to result in those evolving into something even more horrible than they already are.
It breathes fire at you. Which seems like it wouldn't add much, since you're already swimming in lava, but it's surprisingly effective. (hot damage)
It scratches you with its red-hot claws. I mean, everything in here is red-hot, you'd think you'd've gotten used to it, but... (hot damage)
It swings its rock-covered tail at you, thumping you right in the <arse>.
The basaltamander grabs your leg and swims deeper into the lava, where the heat and pressure are even more intense than the red-hot molten rock you were already just sort of blithely swimming around in. (hot damage)
It breathes fire at you, but you duck under the surface of the lava to avoid it.
It tries to claw you, but the weight of its armor makes it easy to avoid.
It tries to hit you with its rock-covered tail, but mass and momentum are harsh mistresses.
It tries to attack you, but doesn't move very quickly -- what with the solid crust of rock covering its body. (FUMBLE!)
Some of the lava you're swimming in goes between your toes. (hot damage)
|You acquire an item: basaltamander tongue (15% chance)*|
|You acquire an item: basaltamander buckler (% chance)*|
|You gain 25 <substat>.|
