Gold dragons are graceful and sinuous. They hate injustice and foul play, and will do what they can to right wrongs even at a young age. On hatching, a gold dragon's scales are dark yellow with golden metallic flecks. They smell faintly of saffron and incense.

Though possessing a few of their elder kin's hereditary advantages, wyrmling gold dragons are the least formidable of all forms of gold dragons.

Special abilities Edit

A wyrmling gold dragon has the usual wyrmling immunity to paralysis and permanent true seeing.

This creature can use its fire dragon breath and weaken dragon breath each thrice per day. It can also cast polymorph self as a spell-like ability thrice per day with caster level of 7.

Notes Edit

  • Added int the Shadows of Undrentide expansion.
  • Like all the metallic dragons, the gold wyrmling is of the commoner faction and, as a result, is non-hostile.
  • All wyrmlings have a naturally fast movement rate.
  • The deck of hazards summons an identical creature (but with a challenge rating of 3) as the non-evil hatchling. This creature will transform into an ancient gold dragon if damaged or killed. The ResRef of the hatchling is x0_hatch_good.
