Silver dragons are kind and helpful. They will
cheerfully assist good creatures if their need is genuine.
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.
Combat: 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
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 of paralyzation gas 50' long, 40' wide, and
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.
Habitat/Society: 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.
Ecology: Silver dragons prefer human food, and
can live on such fare indefinitely.
