Lava Children

So this is in response to Zak Smith's awesome posts on monsters from the original Monster Manual. I love the idea of "lava children," though to me the term conjures a troop of adorable, baby-shaped lava elementals. They're not evil, per se, but they're full of the terrifying glee of children with a lighter and a coloring book. They don't mean to burn down your house, but sometimes there's just no stopping the little bastards. I apologize for the strange formatting my blog forces on creature stat-blocks.
