Mature Adult Brass Dragon Wyrmskull

Wreathed in a ghostly aura, the disembodied skull of a great dragon hovers here, silent and ominous. Beneath a crown of scarred horns, ominous flames flicker within eye sockets long bereft of mortal sight.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Ghostlight (Su)

Her bite attack ignores the reduced damage against incorporeal creatures. In addition to its usual damage, it also deals 1d6 fire damage. Those who take damage from her bite are lined with faerie fire for 1 minute.

Lorewarden (Ex)

She can make use of bardic knowledge as a 16th-level bard. She gains a +8 bonus on all Knowledge checks and can make any Knowledge check untrained.

Move Sand (Sp)

She can move sand to excavate ruins or hide treasure. This functions as move earth (CL 16th), but it only affects sand. This is equivalent to a 5th-level spell.

Sleep Breath (Su)

Instead of a line of fire, she can breathe a cone of sleep gas (40-ft. cone). Creatures within the cone must succeed on a Will save (DC 20) or fall asleep for 1d6+7 rounds.

Speiro (Su)

Once per week as a full-round action, she may strike the ground with her jaws, sowing teeth into the ground. At the beginning of her next turn, 7 skeletal warriors burst from the ground within 10 feet of her to fight at her command. These undead linger and obey her for 1 hour (or until brought to 0 hit points), at which point they crumble to dust. These skeletal warriors are treated as human warrior skeletons but have 7 Hit Dice and fast healing 5. They also gain a +7 bonus to attack and damage rolls, natural armor bonus, and saving throws. These skeletal warriors are immune to fire (in addition to cold) and share her ghostlight, blindsense, damage reduction, and spell resistance. Her teeth gradually regrow over the course of a week after using Speiro. The loss of her teeth has no effect on her bite attack.
