SPECIAL ABILITIES

Frost Armor (Su)

Once every 1d4 rounds as a standard action, white dragons grants allies an icy barrier. All allies gain the effect of Ice Spikes, as the black magic spell. The allies must be within 30 feet of the white dragon, when he uses this ability, to receive these bonuses. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 4th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 23).

Ice Shape (Su)

A white dragon can shape ice and snow at will. This ability functions as stone shape, but only targeting ice and snow, not stone. A white dragon’s caster level for this effect is equal to its Hit Dice.

Icewalking (Ex)

This ability works like the spider climb spell, but the surfaces the dragon climbs must be icy. The dragon can move across icy surfaces without penalty and does not need to make Acrobatics checks to run or charge on ice.

Ice Block (Su)

As a standard action, a white dragon creating an ice encasing around the victims feet in solid ice 5 inch thick within 75 ft. The target of this spell receives the Immobilize status effect and takes 3d6 points of ice damage, if the victim makes the save (Fort DC 18) they take half damage and resist the immobilize status effect. The victim is unable to move for the duration of the spell, until cured, removed with fire, or by smashing through it.

The ice has hardness 0 and 15 hit points; if broken, the creature is freed. A creature can break the ice as a full-round action with a successful Strength check (DC 19) or Escape Artist skill check (DC 24). Blue mages may learn this ability as a 3rd level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 21).

Snow Vision (Ex)

A white dragon learns to see perfectly in snowy conditions. A white dragon does not suffer any penalties to Perception checks while in snow.
