Old or younger sky dragons fly with good maneuverability while all older sky dragons have perfect.
A very young or older sky dragon’s sight is not impeded by clouds or fog, or by spells that create areas of fog.
Any flying creature damaged by the breath weapon of an ancient or older sky dragon must make a Fortitude save with the same DC as the sky dragon’s breath weapon or lose the ability to fly for 1d4 rounds.
An old or older sky dragon’s breath weapon can affect creatures normally immune or resistant to electricity damage. A creature immune to electricity damage still takes half damage from the breath weapon (no damage with a successful saving throw). Resistant creatures’ electricity resistance is treated as 10 less than normal.
