SPECIAL ABILITIES

Dragon Force (Su)

A red 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).

Eruption (Su)

Once every 1d3 rounds as a standard action, a red dragon can cause the ground to erupt in a 20-ft.-radius diameter within 60 feet. Creatures within the area of effect take 15d6 fire damage and are knocked prone. A successful Reflex save DC 25 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).

Fire Roar (Su)

Once every 1d2 rounds as a standard action, a red dragon roars a fiery cone blast within 30-ft. burst. Any creature within the area of effect takes 10d6 points of fire damage and are inflicted with the Burn status effect for 1d6 rounds. A successful Reflex save (DC 25) reduces the damage by half and negates the status effect. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 5th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 25).

Glare (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, a red dragon may select a single target within 90 feet, who then takes 15d10 fire damage, dealing half damage to those normally immune to fire and treating fire resistance as if it was 10 points lower. They must then make a Reflex save (DC 25) for half damage. Blue mages can learn this ability as an 8th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 31).

Healing Flame (Su)

As a standard action, the red dragon manifests a sacred flame beneath his foe up to 30 feet away, dealing 6d6 points of damage (half holy/fire) and heals himself for half the damage dealt. The target must make a successful Fortitude save (DC 25) to take half damage and the red dragon does not gain any hit points. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 23).

Smoke Vision (Ex)

A red dragon can see perfectly in smoky conditions.
