SPECIAL ABILITIES

Dragon Force (Su)

A brown 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).

Earthen Ward (Su)

Once every 1d3 rounds as a standard action, a brown dragon grants nearby allies a powerful stony hide. All allies get the effect of Stoneskin, as the white magic spell. Allies must be within 30 feet of the brown dragon at the time he uses this ability to be affected. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 6th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 27).

Earthquake (Su)

As a standard action, a brown dragon can cause the ground to erupt around it within a 30-ft.-radius. Creatures within the area of effect take 8d6 points of earth damage and are inflicted with the Weighted status effect for 1d6 rounds (Reflex save DC 25 for half damage and negates the status effect). Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 23).

Eerie Howl (Su)

Once every 1d2 rounds as a standard action, a brown dragon can emit a loud, piercing howl within a 10-ft.-radius. Creatures within the area of effect are inflicted with Disable status (Fortitude save DC 25 to negate) for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 5th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 25).

Magnitude 8 (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds, a brown dragon can cause the ground to erupt wildly around it within a 60-ft.-radius. Creatures within the area of effect take 15d10 points of earth damage and are inflicted with the weighted status effect. They must make a successful Reflex save (DC 25) to reduce the damage by half and negate the status effect. Blue mages may learn this ability as an 8th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 31).

Slow Breath (Su)

Instead of a line of jagged rocks, a brown dragon can breathe a cone of slowing gas. Those in the cone must make a Fortitude save or be slowed (as per the spell slow) for 1d6+4 rounds.
