SPECIAL ABILITIES

Desert Wind (Su)

An ancient brass dragon can call up the desert wind to serve him. This functions as gust of wind, but any creature in its path must make a Fortitude save or be blinded for 1d4 rounds by the sand. The save DC for this effect is equal to the dragon’s breath weapon DC.

Fire Aura (Su)

An ancient brass dragon is surrounded by an aura of intense heat. All creatures within 10 feet of the dragon take 1d6 points of fire damage at the beginning of the dragon’s turn. A brass dragon can suppress or activate this aura at will as a free action.

Move Sand (Sp)

An ancient brass dragon can move sand to excavate ruins or hide treasures. This functions as move earth, but it only affects sand. The dragon uses his HD in place of his caster level for this effect. This is equivalent to a 5th-level spell.

Sandstorm (Su)

An ancient brass dragon can create a powerful sandstorm once per day as a full-round action. This storm has a radius of 1 mile and lasts for 10 minutes. This functions as a sandstorm (Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook 431), except that it is also accompanied by windstorm-level winds.

Sleep Breath (Su)

Instead of a line of fire, an ancient brass dragon can breathe a cone of sleep gas. Creatures within the cone must succeed on a Will save or fall asleep for 1d6 rounds plus 10 rounds.
