Breath Weapon The bronze dragon breathes in one of two ways. The dragon can't use Breath Weapon again for 1d4 rounds.

  • Lightning (arcane, electricity, evocation); The dragon breathes Lightning in a 60-foot line that deals 6d12 electricity damage (DC 28 basic Reflex save).
  • Repulsion Gas (abjuration, arcane, incapacitation, mental); The dragon breathes a 60-foot line of repulsive gas. Each creature in the area must succeed at a DC 28 Will save or become fleeing from the dragon for 1 round (or 2 rounds on a critical failure).

Draconic Frenzy The dragon makes two claw Strikes and one tail Strike in any order.

Draconic Momentum When the dragon scores a critical hit with a Strike, it recharges its Breath Weapon.

Water Mastery (arcane, transmutation, water)

For up to 30 minutes per day, the dragon, along with allied creatures and vessels within 50 feet, can move at double their normal Speed in water.


Bronze dragons are among the most common of metallic dragons and the most likely to ally with mortals on worthy quests. However, they are naturally scholarly creatures who would rather remain in their lairs studying esoteric lore than go off on a wild adventure. These aloof and stoic dragons also act as preservationists, guarding storehouses of ancient lore from destruction or perversion. Bronze dragons are principled and protective, but while their silver cousins are quick to crusade for justice, bronze dragons prefer to find an important location worthy of their protection and guard it against any attack or unwelcome intrusion.

Bronze dragons' mastery over water and affinity for electricity means they are a boon to sailors caught in thunderstorms. A bronze dragon's enemies quickly discover neither cloudy sky nor turbulent sea provides shelter from their wrath.

Bronze dragons lair along shorelines, often in partially submerged sea caves.

While all dragons keep hoards of treasure, the hoard of a bronze dragon more resembles a vast library—with the shelves kept carefully above the waterline, of course. In addition to their collections of esoteric lore, bronze dragons keep treasures associated with the sea, such as beautiful scrimshaw, flawless pearls, and equipment inlaid with mother-of-pearl and abalone shell.
