Breath Weapon (Su) Cloud of steam 30 feet high, 30 feet wide, and 60 feet long, once every 1d4 rounds, damage 24d6 fire, Reflex DC 30 half; effective both on the surface and underwater. The save DC is Constitution-based.
Capsize (Ex) A great wyrm dragon turtle can attempt to capsize a boat or ship by ramming it as a charge attack and making a CMB check. The DC of this check is 25, or the result of the boat captain’s Profession (sailor) check, whichever is higher.
Freeze (Ex) A great wyrm dragon turtle can hold itself so still it appears to be a mound of rock. A great wyrm dragon turtle that uses freeze can take 20 on its Stealth check to hide in plain sight as a rocky outcropping or (if at the surface of a body of water) a small island.
Mirage (Su) When using freeze, a great wyrm dragon turtle can create illusory terrain as if using a mirage arcana spell (CL 12th). This terrain must be centered upon the great wyrm dragon turtle. It may incorporate but not hide the terrain feature the turtle appears to be.
Project False Image (Su) As a standard action, a great wyrm dragon turtle can duplicate the effects of a project image spell (CL 12th), except the image produced is that of any humanoid creature, not the great wyrm dragon turtle itself. The image moves according to the turtle’s whim without the turtle needing to move. The turtle may have only one projected avatar at any given time.

Great wyrm dragon turtles are ancient and enormous beings. Equipped with natural camouflage and powerful illusions, these oldest of dragon turtles can hide in plain sight. Many an encounter with a great wyrm dragon turtle is mistaken for an encounter with a strange hermit dwelling on a small island, the other party unaware that the hermit is a projected image and the island a turtle shell.

Though great wyrm dragon turtles claim territory in the manner of younger dragon turtles, they do so more out of habit than anything else. Jaded in their old age, their primary pursuit in life is entertainment. Accordingly, great wyrm dragon turtles value such things as philosophical debates and enchantment- or illusion-fueled mischief as much as they value treasure.
