SPECIAL ABILITIES

Blight Coils (Su)

In place of dealing damage with its constrict ability, the dragon can expose the target to its virulence ability or cause the target to take damage from one disease it has as if a day had passed.

Constrictor (Ex)

An apocalypse dragon has no wing attacks, but its bite gains the grab ability and it gains the constrict ability, dealing damage equal to that of its bite attack.

Vile Fortitude (Ex)

An apocalypse dragon is immune to cold, death effects, disease, and poison.

Virulence (Su)

Any creature damaged by the dragon’s breath weapon must succeed at a Fortitude save at the same DC or contract slimy doom, with no onset time. An adult dragon’s disease deals 1d6 points of Constitution damage; this increases to 1d8 and 3 consecutive successful saves for an ancient dragon.

ECOLOGY

Environment any (Abaddon)
Organization solitary
Treasure triple

These planar dragons ravage places of growth, life, and fecundity.
