Hero Abilities Package - Dragon, Gold

Gold Dragon

Gold Dragon Racial Package (Cost 482-117=365)

Conversion Notes: This package represents the minimum abilities of a young (16 to 25 year old) gold dragon from the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons role playing game. All abilities which are only in hero ID work only in dragon form, or if polymorphed into an appropiate form to use this ability. This write-up uses Champions 5th edition rules.

Gold dragons are one of the larger common dragon types. They can breath a cone of fire or a cone of acid gas. They can also attack with their powerful claws and bite. From birth a gold dragon can polymorph itself three times a day, breath under water and is immune to fire and acid attacks. They are vulnerable to cold attacks.

Although generally considered a good race of dragons, player characters can play any alignment.

Gold dragons are wise, judicious, and benevolent. They often embark on self-appointed quests to promote goodness, and are not easily distracted from them. They hate injustice and foul play. A gold dragon frequently assumes human or animal guise and usually will be encountered disguised.

At birth, a gold dragon's scales are dark yellow with golden metallic flecks. The flecks get larger as the dragon matures until, at the adult stage, the scales grow completely golden.

Their favorite food is pearls and small gems. Like most dragons they can live for over 1000 years, sense the presence of invisible things, see in the dark, are immune to sleep and hold spells, and have large wings which allow flight.
