"Half-dragon" is a template that can be added to any corporeal creature (referred to hereafter as the "base creature"). The creature’s type becomes "dragon." It uses all the base creature’s statistics and special abilities except as noted here.
Hit Dice: Increase by one die type, to a maximum of d12.
Speed: Half-dragons of Large or larger size have wings and can fly at their normal speed (average maneuverability). Smaller specimens have wings only if the base creature does.
AC: Natural armor improves by +4.
Damage: Half-dragons have bite and claw attacks. If the base creature does not have these attack forms, use the damage values in the table below. Otherwise, use the values below or the base creature’s damage, whichever is greater.
|Size||Bite Damage||Claw Damage|
Special Attacks: A half-dragon retains all the special attacks of the base creature and also gains a breath weapon based on the dragon variety, usable only once per day. Use all rules for dragon breath (see the Dragon entry) except as specified in the table below.
|Dragon Variety||Breath Weapon||Damage||(DC)|
|Black||Line* of acid||6d4||(17)|
|Blue||Line of lightning||6d8||(18)|
|Green||Cone** of gas||6d6||(17)|
