Each of an edict dragon’s wings holds a single symbol spell activated only at the dragon’s command as a swift action, affecting targets in a 60-foot cone.
Parapet Wings (Ex)
An edict dragon gains a +2 shield bonus to AC, increases its spell resistance (if any) by 2, and cannot be flanked. If the dragon is flying or makes a wing attack, it loses this benefit until the start of its next turn.
Powerful Wings (Ex)
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.
Sweeping Scrawl (Su)
An edict dragon’s tail sweep marks each creature in the area as with its scrivener ability (Reflex negates). The scrivener penalty increases to –4.
An edict dragon can speak with any creature that has a language, as if using tongues.
