SQ dogmatic discordance


Dogmatic Discordance (Su)

Good or evil creatures take a -2 penalty when making saving throws against a silver dragon’s spells, spell-like abilities, supernatural abilities, breath weapon, and aura.

Dragon Force (Su)

A silver 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).

Level ? Holy (Su)

As a standard action, the silver dragon releases beams of holy energy blasts towards all his enemies within a 30 ft. radius of him, exploding into intense light inflicting to all creatures with a total HD that is prime number dealing 20d8 points of holy damage and inflicting the dazzled status effect for 2d4 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 6th-level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 27).

Paralyzing Breath (Su)

Instead of a cone of sacred light, a silver dragon can breath a cone of paralyzing gas. Creatures within the cone must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 30) or be paralyzed for 1d6 rounds.

Spirit Blades (Su)

Once every 1d4+1 rounds as a standard action, the silver dragon calls forth up to six longsword-shaped force effects that float near him until directed for nineteen rounds.

The silver dragon can use a standard action to direct one blade to attack a target up to a distance of 50 feet away, or use a full-attack action to cause all six blades to attack up to six different targets up to a distance of 50 feet away, each to a different location if desired. Once he directs a spirit blade to attack a foe, the blade continues to make a single attack against that foe each round on the silver dragon’s turn until directed otherwise by him and as long as the foe remains within 50 feet of the caster. As a move action, the silver dragon can direct all currently attacking blades to switch targets to new foes within 50 feet. These weapons attack using the caster’s base attack bonus modified by its Intelligence modifier, and deal 3d6 points of damage plus an amount of force damage equal to the caster’s Wisdom modifier.

Physical attacks do not affect these blades, but a disintegrate-like abilities causes them to vanish. If a spirit blade’s target dies or moves beyond a 50-foot range and the caster does not retarget that blade by the end of its turn, the blade vanishes. Likewise, any blades that are not within 50 feet of the caster at the end of its turn also vanish.
