my new entry for the creature of the week activity on concept art.org
Red Hot Doom
This magical lava being was created by Nephaestos, an powerfull fire magician.
When he conjured it, it existed an relative short time, exactly seven minutes, but this was enough to burn down the entire east wing of the magical university of Goch.Nephaestos himself surprisingly survived the catastropy by jumping out of the window of his laboratory and right in the Goch river. His burning beard shining in the dark. It is said that the lava being appears every year on that same day in an random location of the city.And during seven minutes it burns down everything around it.
Nephaestos was banned from the magical university and from the city of Goch and never seen since then.
Red Hot Doom is the name the people of Goch gave this terrible being.
Until today Goch still stands because every year the city is prepared for Red Hot Doom´s arrival.
It´s the reason why the Gochians always keep an huge bucket filled with water in each room of their houses.
