Quick Rust (Ex) Any metal object in the swarm is destroyed. Masterwork and magic items get a DC 17 Reflex save or gain the broken condition. If they fail a second save, they are destroyed. The save is Dexterity based.

squareIt is thought that the demons which originally came to Pradjna brought these mites with them to aid in the extraction of frozen ore, but they, like the other fell creatures, became trapped in the frozen tundra. Occasionally, a fiendish rust mite swarm is released and creates havoc until it is destroyed.
