Green Dragons Pt 4

Very old and Ancient green dragons are a fine capstone to a campaign. They rival the archfey themselves when vying for territory and often control vast swaths of unsettled wilderness, or beyond.

Ceinwen The Greenway, Very Old Green Dragon, CR 19

Ceinwen is a reclusive, isolationist dragon, concerned for nothing but the forest, and her horde. This was made even easier for her, after a long conversation with a powerful archmage. The mage told her all about other forests, and dimensions, and as he went to leave, Ceinwen ate him. Now she uses his Cubic Gate to raid other realities, before returning home to safety, with an ever expanding horde.

Finding The Greenway without her knowledge is a challenge. Especially as she becomes more and more reclusive. More likely, she will appear high above a Bytopian city, unleash havoc, grab valuables and disappear before any response can be mustered. Prior to a raid, she will cast Mage Armor, Comprehend Languages, Mirror Image, Resist Energy (fire), Greater Invisibility,  See Invisibility, and Arcane Sight.

Breath Weapon SU: as a standard action, once per 1d4 rounds, Ceinwen can breathe a cone of corrosive acid gas 50ft long dealing 18d6 acid damage reflex save DC 33.

Frightful Presence EX: Ceinwen can unsettle foes with a mere presence. The ability takes effect automatically whenever Ceinwen attacks, charges, or flies overhead. Creatures within a radius of 270ft are subject to the effect if they have fewer than 29 hit die. A potentially affected creature that succeeds on a Will save (DC 30) remains immune to Ceinwen‘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.

Horde

Ceinwen has a true horde, in that it is a pile of treasure she has stolen from around the planes. Because its all stolen valuables, she doesn’t have much in the way of mundane useful items. Just things she thought looked valuable during her raids.

Teifion, Ancient Green Dragon, CR 21

At 943 years old, Teifion knows he is a world player, and is not shy about making demands when he wants something. He has already laid claim to the elven treetop city of Elidyr, after driving out its residence, and his neighbors are hoping this will appease him.

Alignment:Lawful Evil

Teifion is a gargantuan dragon, and over 900 years old. He is super intelligent compared to most species, 50ft long, and over 100 tons. There are very few things on the material plane that can threaten him, and he not only knows it, he knows specifically who they are. He makes heavy use of the Scrying spell to watch his foes, and more importantly their families, loved ones, and anyone he can use to dissuade enemies from attacking him. If someone were foolish enough to do so, he has allowed a tribe of greenscale kobolds to reside in the trees, provided they worship him, and sound the alarm. He always has mage armor cast (17 hour duration), but will also cast True Seeing, Mirror Image, Resist Energy, See Invisabilty, Comprehend Languages, and Greater Invisability. His primary tactic is to send Major Images of himself directly at his foes, to absorb their opening salvo, prior to using waves of fatigue and chain lightning from a distance. If someone manages to close, he has no objection to entering melee and destroying his targets.  

Breath Weapon SU: as a standard action, once per 1d4 rounds, Teifion can breathe a cone of corrosive acid gas 60ft long dealing 20d6 acid damage reflex save DC 36.

Frightful Presence EX: Teifion can unsettle foes with a mere presence. The ability takes effect automatically whenever Teifion attacks, charges, or flies overhead. Creatures within a radius of 300ft are subject to the effect if they have fewer than 32 hit die. A potentially affected creature that succeeds on a Will save (DC 33) remains immune to Teifion‘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

Teifion’s lair is the ex-palace of the treetop village. Built upon the tallest tree, and interwoven amongst its branches. He spends most of his time in the open air courtyard, sunning himself, but will retreat within if he is planning to actually sleep or do any Scrying. The kobolds (about 50) have taken residence throughout the rest of the city.
