Adamantine Weapons (Ex)

The teeth and claws of a clockwork dragon are made of adamantine and have the qualities of a weapon made from that material.

Efficient Winding (Ex)

Built for long and dangerous missions, a clockwork dragon can function for 3 days per HD each time it is wound up.

Self-Destruction (Ex)

When a clockwork dragon’s hit points are reduced to 10% of its total (20 in the case of most clockwork dragon) or less but are still above 0, the creature self-destructs on its next turn, bursting into an explosion of metal scraps and steam that deals 10d6 points of slashing damage plus 10d6 points of fire damage to all creatures within a 20-foot-radius burst. A successful DC 22 Reflex save halves the damage. The save is Charisma-based.


The clockwork dragon is a masterpiece of clockwork construction and is exceptionally difficult to create. The creator must begin with crafted clockwork pieces worth 25,000 gp.
