Frost Breath (Recharge 6): The mephit exhales a 15-foot cone of cold air. Each creature in that area must succeed on a DC 10 Dexterity saving throw, taking 5 (2d4) cold damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

The SendingStone review

The Ice Mephit is a fairly weak monster with a challenge rating of only 1/2. It has low HP and average abilities in most categories, but is immune to cold and poison. Its most interesting feature is its ability to breathe a cone of cold damage, which can deal decent damage to a group of players. In terms of alignment, it is classified as neutral evil, which suggests it may be more inclined towards selfish or malevolent behavior. Overall, the Ice Mephit is not a particularly dangerous or unique monster, but could still pose a threat to lower level players.

Ice Mephit is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Ice Mephit Pathfinder edition. Want to use Ice Mephit in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
