Black Waves (Su)

Once every 1d2 round as a standard action, a black dragon spreads dark waves from herself. All creatures within a 30 ft.-radius must make a Reflex save (DC 16) for half damage or take 3d6+12 points of shadow damage. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 21).

See in Darkness (Su)

A black dragon can see perfectly in darkness of any kind, including that created by the blacklight spell.

Terror Touch (Su)

As a standard action, a black dragon reaches out with terror towards an opponent within 35 feet. The affected creature becomes frightened. A frightened creature flees from the source of its fear as best it can. If unable to flee, it may fight. A frightened creature takes a –2 penalty on all attack rolls, saving throws, skill checks, and ability checks. A frightened creature can use special abilities, including spells, to flee; indeed, the creature must use such means if they are the only way to escape. If the subject succeeds on a Will save (DC 16), it is shaken for 1 round. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 17).
