A potion of fire breath gives the drinker a limited ability to breathe fire.

Properties[]

A potion of fire breath is an orange-flickering liquid that gives off smoke. The drinker may use a bonus action to exhale fire at a target within 30 feet, forcing a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw. On a failure, the target takes 4d6 fire damage, and on a success, half as much. The drinker may exhale fire a total of three times for one hour after drinking the potion.[1]

When consumed, the potion warms like a fine whiskey, but the warmth grows to the point where it is almost too hot. It never quite reaches a point where it's painful, but a need to belch burbles within the user's stomach and they can let that belch fly forward.[2]
