Template Grafts | Universal Monster Rules


Dragon (Outer) Grafts

Outer dragons are comfortable flying through space, though they often land on planets and moons to feed on or interact with the native populaces at their whims.

Outer dragons use the same guidelines as metallic dragons for age, fly speed (except an outer dragon’s is supernatural rather than extraordinary), size, spell resistance, and the crush universal creature rule.

Void Dragon (CR 3+)

Source Alien Archive 2 pg. 43
Ancient and terrible entities that dwell outside of space have driven many void dragons beyond reason, and now they do nothing but feed and destroy.

Air-breathing creatures within the cone must succeed at a Fortitude save or begin attempting Constitution checks to avoid suffocation, even if they have environmental protections.

An affected creature can attempt a new Fortitude saving throw at the beginning of each turn to shake off this effect and regain its air supply.
