Mud Gun (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, a brown dragon can shoot mud out of its mouth towards a single target with an earth projectile. The brown dragon must make a ranged touch attack (+7), if it hits, the attack deals 1d6+2 earth damage and must make a Fortitude save (DC 10) or be inflicted with the Weighted status effect for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 1st level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 17).

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 1d2 rounds.
