Earthquake (Su)

Once every 1d3 rounds 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 20 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 1d4 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 20 to negate) for 1d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 5th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 25).

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 rounds.

Triumphant Roar (Su)

As a standard action, the brown dragon releases a raging fierce roar, boosting their personal attack power. This adds a +6 morale bonus to all attack rolls for eleven rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 21).
