Green Dragons Pt. 3

Adult green dragons are the nation breakers. The ones that kings and queens send adventurers to deal with, because they are razing entire cities and controlling entire forests. These are the first green dragons that really “feel” like true dragons. They are huge, intelligent, and cruel.

Ifor Talfryn, Adult Green Dragon, CR 13

Ifor is an adult dragon, and has come to the conclusion that endlessly assaulting caravans isn’t wise for his health. Eventually someone will send some competent dragon slayers and he will have a real problem. As such, he is taking time off from gathering a horde, and instead focused on planning his long life. While not agreeable and excited at the prospect of entertaining guests, Ifor is much more open to negotiation than others of his kind.

Alignment:Lawful Evil

At huge size, stealth becomes a challenge for Ifor, he can sneak up on merchants and the general commoner, but dedicated dragon slayers are probably going to be able to spot him. As such, he spends most of his time near his lair, lounging around the reclusive lake and chatting up the evil nixies who inhabit it. He keeps key points of entry to the clearing and his cave warded with the alarm spell, and always has Mage armor cast. In combat he makes heavy use of web and fog cloud, before wading in to squash whatever thought it could challenge him one on one.

Breath Weapon SU: as a standard action, once per 1d4 rounds, Ifor can breathe a cone of corrosive acid gas 50ft long dealing 12d6 acid damage reflex save DC 27.

Frightful Presence EX: Ifor can unsettle foes with a mere presence. The ability takes effect automatically whenever Ifor attacks, charges, or flies overhead. Creatures within a radius of 180ft are subject to the effect if they have fewer than 20 hit die. A potentially affected creature that succeeds on a Will save (DC 25) remains immune to Ifor‘s frightful presence for 24 hours. On a failure, creatures with 4 or less HD become panicked for 4d6 rounds and those with 5 or more HD become shaken for 4d6 rounds.

Lair

Ifor has cleared a small pond of some Chuul placed there by a mad wizard experimenting, for which the inhabitants, a tribe of Nixie, are endlessly thankful. The nixies and dragon spend most of their days endlessly talking about the vast lifetime of experiences an immortal tribe of Nixies, and a 185 year old dragon have experienced. Ifor uses these chats to plan for a long life ahead, and the Nixies enjoy the protection offered. Ifor has claimed the cave, behind a waterfall, as his lair, and rests there at night.

Addfwyn, Mature Adult Green Dragon, CR 16

Addfwyn has weathered her first dragon slayer ambush, and come out stronger for it. As such, she has laid claim to the entire Breckonridge Forest, and the villages within. She makes her rounds monthly between each village to collect tolls, but also to ensure they are fully submissive and don’t plan any sort of revolt.

Because of the nature of Addfwyn’s work, she always has Mage Armor cast. In addition, prior to entering a town she will cast Comprehend Languages and Mirror Image. She lands, and demands tribute, which should be prepared. If not, she begins a campaign of harassment, breathing a cone of acid, before taking flight, and using all of her web, fog cloud, and fireball spells remaining for the day. She will return daily at dawn until the village offers the tribute promised. When collecting tribute, she will use suggestion while chatting up a few townsfolk to see if she can gather rumors or plans about a revolt.

Breath Weapon SU: as a standard action, once per 1d4 rounds, Ifor can breathe a cone of corrosive acid gas 50ft long dealing 12d6 acid damage reflex save DC 29.

Frightful Presence EX: Addfwyn can unsettle foes with a mere presence. The ability takes effect automatically whenever Addfwyn attacks, charges, or flies overhead.

A potentially affected creature that succeeds on a Will save (DC 27) remains immune to Addfwyn ‘s frightful presence for 24 hours.

Drywson Teague, Old Green Dragon, CR 18

Teague is a dragon on hard times. He was recently driven from his lair, and escaped with only what he could carry. After settling in the remote Cadwaller Forest, and getting his bearings, he struck out again to rebuild. The first thing conquered, a military outpost, which now makes up his lair and rebuilds a base of his horde.

Drywson Teague is not a happy dragon. He is paranoid and has no time for niceties. He always has mage armor cast, and a series of alarms fill the woods surrounding his tower alerting him to hostile approach. When that happens, he casts Mirror Image and peers over the destroyed roof and will send a major image of himself flying from the tower. If it draws fire, spells, or attention, he prepares resist energy as appropriate. Once the illusion is up, or its obviously not believed, he Dimension Door’s next to the threat invisibly, and immediately full attacks unsuspecting spellcasters. He makes heavy use of his Plant Growth, and once per day will drastically improve a half mile portion of the forest near his tower, making it difficult to navigate through the denser forest.

Breath Weapon SU: as a standard action, once per 1d4 rounds, Teague can breathe a cone of corrosive acid gas 50ft long dealing 16d6 acid damage reflex save DC 32.

Frightful Presence EX: Ole Teague can unsettle foes with a mere presence. The ability takes effect automatically whenever Teague attacks, charges, or flies overhead. Creatures within a radius of 240ft are subject to the effect if they have fewer than 26 hit die. A potentially affected creature that succeeds on a Will save (DC 29) remains immune to Teague‘s frightful presence for 24 hours. On a failure, creatures with 4 or less HD become panicked for 4d6 rounds and those with 5 or more HD become shaken for 4d6 rounds.

Lair

Teague has taken over a military outpost, established deep in the forest, ironically to serve as an early warning against threats like wandering dragons. The watch tower is set with provisions and equipment for 20 men, and Teague is a new arrival, so he has not done much to customize it, aside from widening the rooftop entrance, and placing giant boulders in front of the front doors.
