Mist Dragon, Young

This great dragon has a ridge of swept-back horns encircling its head with two larger and longer horns just above its eyes dominating the others. A ridge of similar smaller horns runs the length of its back from its shoulders to its tail. Its body is long, snake-like, and semi-material. It possesses no visible wings. Its scaled body is grayish-white.

Breath Weapon (Su)

A mist dragon’s breath weapon is a cone of cloudy scalding vapor. In still air, the vapor lingers for 1d4 rounds and forms a cloud that covers a radius equal to the cone’s length; on the second round, the vapor condenses into a heated smothering fog that deals 1d6 points of fire damage to creatures each round they remain in the area (Fortitude save halves this damage). The fog also blinds creatures (as the blindness spell) that fail the save as long as they remain within in the cloud and for 2 rounds after they leave the area.

Mist Vision (Ex)

A very young mist dragon can see perfectly in foggy conditions (such as those created by fog cloud or obscuring mist).

Water Breathing (Ex)

A very young or older mist dragon can breathe underwater indefinitely and can freely use its breath weapon, spells, and other abilities while submerged.


Environment temperate and warm forests and aquatic
Organization solitary or clan (2–5)
Treasure triple standard

Mist dragons are relatively passive (for dragons) and reclusive, preferring to spend their time away from most other races (including other mist dragons). Mist dragons make their lairs near large sources of water such as waterfalls, lakes, and seashores. A mist dragon resembles a gold dragon in shape and size. Its scales are shiny-blue white as a hatchling and gradually darken to a blue-gray color with metallic silver splotches.

Mist dragons usually spend their days moving from place to place in mist form. If threatened or angered, a mist dragon assumes solid form and attacks using its breath weapon, claws, and bite.
