Silver dragons are kind and helpful. They will cheerfully assist good
creatures if their need is genuine. They often take e the forms of kindly old men or
fair damsels when associating with people.
At birth, a silver dragon's scales are blue-gray with silver highlights. As
the dragon approaches adulthood, its color slowly lightens to brightly gleaming
silver. An adult or older silver dragon has scales so fine that the individual
scales are scarcely visible. From a distance, these dragons look as if they have
been sculpted from pure metal.
Silver dragons speak their own tongue, a tongue common to all good dragons,
and 16% of hatchling silver dragons have an ability to communicate with any
intelligent creature. The chance to possess this ability increases 5% per age
category of the dragon.
Silver dragons are not violent and avoid combat except when faced with highly
evil or aggressive foes. If necessary, they use feather fall
to stop any missiles fired at them. They use wall of fog
or control weather
to blind or confuse opponents before making melee attacks. If angry, they
will use reverse gravity
to fling enemies helplessly into the air, where they can be snatched. When
faced with flying opponents, a silver dragon will hide in clouds (often creating
some with control weather
on clear days), remain there using cloud walking
, then jump to the attack when they have the advantage.
Breath Weapon/Special Abilities:
A silver dragon has two breath weapons: a cone of cold
80' long, 5' wide at the dragon's mouth, and 30' wide at the end or a cloud
gas 50' long, 40' wide, and 20' high. Creatures caught in the cold are
allowed a save versus breath weapon for half damage. A silver dragon casts its spells
and uses its magical abilities at 6th level, plus its combat modifier.
At birth, silver dragons are immune to cold and can polymorph self
three times a day. Each change in form lasts until the dragon chooses a
different form and reverting to their normal form does not count as a change. They
also can cloud walk
. This allows the dragon to tread on clouds or fog as though they were solid
ground. The ability functions continuously, but can be negated or resumed at
will. As they age, they gain the following additional powers: Young: feather fall
twice a day. Juvenile: wall of fog
once a day. Adult: control winds
three times a day. Mature adult: control weather
once a day. Old: reverse gravity
once a day.
Silver dragons prefer aerial lairs on secluded mountain peaks, or amid the
clouds themselves. When they lair in clouds there always will be an enchanted area
with a sold floor for laying eggs and storing treasure.
Silver dragons seem to prefer human form to their own, and often have mortal
companions. Frequently they share deep friendships with mortals. Inevitably,
however, the dragon reveals its true form and takes its leave to live a dragon's
life for a time.
Silver dragons prefer human food, and can live on such fare indefinitely.
Because they lair in similar territories, silver dragons come into conflict
with red dragons. Duels between the two species are furious and deadly, but
silver dragons generally get the upper hand since they are more capable of working
together against their foes and often have human allies.
