Desc Ription

These unnatural creatures are the product of decades of research on the part of the black dragonflight. While Deathwing aimed to create chromatic dragons years ago (this desire constituted much of his motivation for attacking Grim Batol), he was never able to capture enough eggs to succeed. His son, Nefarian, has recently succeeded to an extent, creating dozens of these chromatic dragon whelps — young dragons with the properties of all five dragonflights. Raised in captivity, they know only servitude; although highly intelligent, none of these whelps has the power or cunning to break Nefarian's grasp on their minds.

Chromatic whelps speak Draconic, and some speak Common as well.


Chromatic dragon whelps are fearless in combat, not having learned the value of their own lives. They rotate through dieir breath weapons in hopes of finding a weakness in their enemies, using their claws to attack in between breaths.

Breath Weapon (Su): Chromatic dragons possess die breath weapons of each of the five flights. The dragon may choose which breath weapon to use when it breathes, but it still must wait ld4 rounds before using any other breath weapon. The DC for all saves is 17. It chooses one of the following:

Black Breath: 30-ft. cone, 4dl0 fire.

Blue Breath: 30-ft. cone, 4d6 cold; secondary effect mana bum (as a 4di-level caster)

Bronze Breath: 30-ft. cone, 4d6 fire; secondary effect accelerated aging.

Green Breath: 20-ft. cone, 4d6 acid; secondary effect sleep (as 4th- level caster).

Red Breath: 30-ft. line, 4dl0 fire; secondary effect scorch and renew land.

See the dragon entries in the Monster Guide (and, for blue dragons, in Lands of Mystery) for more information.

Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day—protection from evil, purify food and drink, tongues-, 2/day—speak with animals; 1/day—detect thoughts (DC 14).

Subtype Combination: Chromatic dragons have both the cold and fire subtypes, which effectively cancel each other out. A chromatic dragon does not have immunity or vulnerability to either cold or fire.
