Gas dragon breath (shifter)

Innate level: 9
Range: touch
Save: reflex 1/2
Spell resistance: no
Area of effect: 15 meter cone
Duration: instantaneous

Description: The dragon breathes a poisonous gas dealing acid damage based on the dragon's age. The DC for resisting the acid is 15 + (druid level + shifter level)/2 with a 4 point penalty if the dragon does not have 10 shifter levels. The poison, which is applied independent of the reflex save, is epic wyvern poison.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This ability is intended for shifters in the ancient green dragon form of dragon shape.
  • The dragon's age is normally the sum of druid and shifter levels. If used by a creature with neither druid nor shifter levels, the age is character level, halved for player characters.
    • Under normal conditions, the minimum effective level for shifters is 15, while the minimum effective level for druids is 18.
  • The damage for each age category is given in the following table. (Aside from an anomaly at level 37 and a minimum of 1d6, the damage increases by 2d6 for every 3 levels past 10.) Four more dice are rolled if the caster has at least 10 shifter levels. (Italicized entries are not possible under standard circumstances.)

The levels for "wyrm" and beyond differ from the normal dragon breath determination.

  • This ability corresponds to the second listing of "dragon breath, gas" in the creature special abilities tab in the Toolset.
  • Monsters normally should use gas dragon breath breath (the first listing of "dragon breath, gas"), even though that ability lacks poison.
