SPECIAL ABILITIES

Dragon Force (Su)

A blue dragon releases the dragon soul within, improving itself or an ally by touch. This ability grants the subject an increase to all physical damage, melee and range, by +1 per three caster levels. It also grants the subject an increase to all magical damage and healing by +1 per three caster levels. This ability lasts for a minute. Blue mages may learn this ability as an 8th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 31).

Exploding Bubbles (Su)

As a standard action, Bismarck breathes out exploding bubbles within a 15-ft. cone that does 15d6 points of damage (half water/half wind) and are knocked prone. A successful Reflex save (DC 30) reduces the damage by half and are not knocked prone. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 6th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 27).

Flash Rain (Su)

Once every 1d3 rounds as a standard action, a blue dragon causes a shower of icy cold rain in a flash, hitting all those in a 30-ft.-cone. Those in the area of effect take 10d6 ice and 10d6 water damage, a successful Reflex (DC 30) for half damage. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 8th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 31).

Unfettered Swimmer (Su)

While swimming, the blue dragon is treated as if under the effects of the spell freedom of movement.

Vortex (Su)

A blue dragon can create a whirlpool as a standard action, at will. This ability functions identically to the whirlwind special attack, but can only form underwater and cannot leave the water. A blue dragon can maintain this vortex for 5 rounds.

Water Breathing (Ex)

A blue dragon breathes water and can use its breath weapon, spells, and abilities underwater.
