SPECIAL ABILITIES

Frostdeath Bones (Ex)

The bones of a frostdeath dragon can be scavenged for use in the crafting of armor or weapons, increasing the DC of the Craft check by +10. Frostdeath weapons deal +2 cold damage and a suit of frostdeath armor or frostdeath shield grants its wearer cold resistance 5.

Suppressing Cold (Su)

A frostdeath dragon’s aura of suppressing cold extends to a radius of 50 ft. and deals 1d10 cold damage to all creatures within it at the start of the frostdeath dragon’s turn. Any non-magical open flames within the suppressing cold are automatically extinguished, and magical fire effects (like the flaming weapon enchantment or a fireball spell) must succeed at a DC 19 caster level check or are completely suppressed.

Even on a success, any fire damage dealt within the radius of suppressing cold only deals half as much damage as normal.
