Notes **this one is for Classic Fantasy** These are typically the most bad tempered and abusive of dragon kind, quick to anger and resentful of intrusion. They are not as intelligent as other dragons, although still more so than the white sub-species and can be far more cruel. They are both cunning and malevolent, preferring to lair in bleak landscapes or the darkness offered by heavy vegetation. They prefer to strike from hiding using their surroundings as cover, often springing from a deep pool or swamp to catch their prey unaware. Like all dragons, black dragons are motivated by the urge to horde treasure. The breath weapon of the black dragon is a stream of highly corrosive acid that can reduce an opponent to bone in little time; they themselves are immune to acid. Black dragons are born with the ability to breathe underwater. Speak/Sleep: Black dragons have a 30% chance of being able to speak and a 50% chance of being found asleep. Magic Skills: Black dragons that can speak are able to cast Arcane spells once the requisite skills equal or exceed 50%. This includes cantrips. Black dragons may not cast Arcane spells in excess of Rank 1 regardless of skill. Extra Abilities: Breath Weapon (Line of Acid): A black dragon’s acid shoots out in a line 3 metres wide for a range equal to the dragon’s CON x3 in metres. All opponents in the line of effect are subject to acid damage. They can try to Evade, and halve damage if they do. The acid does 2D6+2 points of damage to each of the target’s hit locations: Armour does protect against this damage, but is eaten away by it. Once the armour is gone, the acid will start attacking the HP. The acid will last for 1D3 turns or until washed off. There is a chance equal to the damage rolled x5%, of the attack producing an acidic gas that may be inadvertently inhaled. If inhaled, match the dragon’s CON x5 against the victim’s Endurance, if overcome they begins taking 1d2 points of damage directly to their chest hit location as the gas begins to burn their lungs. This is in addition to any damage to the chest from the acid. Once they vacate the area of effect, the damage to the lungs ceases. The gas, even if not inhaled, causes burning of the eyes, nose and mouth, the effects of which is a 1 grade penalty to all skill rolls for the entirety of time exposed to the gas, and 1d3+1 minutes later. Infravision. Black dragons see into the infrared spectrum. The maximum distance is 18 metres (60 ft) unless specified otherwise. Immunity to Acid: Black dragons are completely immune to damage caused by acid. Darkness: 3 times a day, the black dragon can cause darkness as per the spell, in a 3m radius per 1/10th Willpower
