Word of Wizards - Excerpts: Brown Dragon
Draconomicon Excerpts: Brown Dragon
Welcome the newest member of the Chromatic family; the brown dragon.
This lazy glutton among dragons live for the sole purpose of eating the easiest and tastiest of meals and would almost do anything (even at the behest of its hoard) to get it.
It lives in the desert and breathes out hot stinging sand that also blinds its targets. Other than possessing valuable and magical treasure, the brown dragon also collects expensive utensils and silverware. It also boast rare books among it's hoard although I have my doubts that they contain any potent arcane spells than recipes.
Although the attractions of the brown dragon is quite amusing, the sand-based attacks of the 16th level Solo Lurker Elder Brown Dragon is no laughing matter. It has a Sand Spray attack that is an immediate reaction to anyone that uses a ranged attack on the dragon which could blind them.
Its Breath Weapon stays on the battlefield until the end of its next turn and anyone that is adjacent or moves through the area takes ten damage.
Haven't had enough? How about its Quicksand Vortex which allows it to transform into sand, shift through occupied squares and deals 2d6+4 damage and blinds anyone it passes through.
