An edict dragon’s tail slap is a touch attack that deals no damage but instead writes a rune on the target that imposes a –2 penalty to AC for 1 minute. A target may bear only one edict dragon rune at a time. The dragon can also use its tail as a mundane writing utensil.
An edict dragon can speak with any creature that has a language, as if using tongues.
Environment any (Axis)
These planar dragons establish bastions of order and transform lawless towns into shining examples of urban grandeur.
