Combat

A nether dragon uses its greater arcane sight to home in on areas of powerful magic. It usually uses ethereal jaunt to approach invisibly, then unleashes its nether disjunction ability, quickened greater dispel magic, and a flurry of attacks against spellcasters. A nether dragon ignores non-spellcasters unless they inflict significant damage (over one-quarter of the creature's initial hit points). A nether dragons uses its nether disjunction ability as often as it can, and uses quickened greater dispel magic every round on whichever foe has the most active spell effects. If reduced to fewer than one-quarter its starting hit points, a nether dragon attempts to flee via ethereal jaunt.

Spell-Like Abilities: At will—quickened greater dispel magic. 3/day—etherealjaunt. Caster level equal to the nether dragon's Hit Dice (18th level for the nether dragon presented above).

Qreat Spellbreaker (Sp): A nether dragon's physical attacks all count as spellbreak attempts, as per the Spellbreakerf feat; the creature does not have to spend a full attack action or a standard action to attempt a spellbreak. In addition, any creature struck by a nether dragon's bite or claw attack is subject to a greater dispel magic at a level equal to the nether dragon's Hit Dice (18th level for the nether dragon presented above). Note that nether dragons have a variety of other feats that further enhance their spellbreak and dispelling abilities, such as Devour Magicf and Feedbackf.

Force Shield (Su): A nether dragon gains a deflection bonus to its AC equal to its Charisma modifier times 2.

Greater Arcane Sight (Su): Nether dragons are always under the effects of a greater arcane sight spell. This ability cannot be dispelled. In addition, nether dragons do not need to concentrate to determine whether a creature has any spellcasting or spell-like abilities, whether these are arcane or divine, or to determine the strength of the most powerful spell or spell-like ability the creature currently has available for use; nether dragons always know this information.

Magic Consumption (Ex): If a nether dragon's spell resistance successfully resists a spell, the creature absorbs the spell's energy. The nether dragon gains 2d4 temporary hit points per spell level of the absorbed spell. If the spell was 5th-level or higher,

the nether dragon also gains a +2 enhancement bonus to all ability scores. This bonus stacks with itself, so a nether dragon that resists two 5th-level spells gains a +4 enhancement bonus to all ability scores. These temporary hit points and enhancement bonuses last for 24 hours. The temporary hit points also stack with themselves (i.e., if a nether dragon resists two spells, it gains temporary hit points for both of them) and those provided by the nether dragon's nether disjunction ability.

Nether Disjunction (Sp): Once every 10 rounds as a free action, a nether dragon may use Morden's disjunction (caster level equal to the nether dragon's Hit Dice; 18 th level for the nether dragon presented above). If the creature disjoins any spells with this ability, it gains 2d4 temporary hit points per level of each disjoined spell. These temporary hit points last for 24 hours. These temporary hit points stack with themselves (i.e., if a nether dragon disjoins two spells, it gains temporary hit points for both of them) and those provided by the nether dragon's magic consumption ability. The DC is Charisma-based.

Spectral Form (Ex): Nether dragons are composed of nether energy and are only partially corporeal. They have a 20% chance to ignore all damage from any corporeal source, save that from ghost touch weapons or force effects.

Superior Spell Resistance (Ex): Nether dragons are highly resistant to magic. A nether dragon's spell resistance is equal to 20 + its Hit Dice.

Skills: Nether dragons have a +8 racial bonus on Move Silently checks.
