blue dragon's scales vary in color from an iridescent azure to a deep indigo,
polished to a glossy finish by blowing desert sands. The size of its scales increases
little as the dragon ages, although they do become thicker and harder. Its hide
tends to hum and crackle faintly with built-up static electricity. These effects
intensify when the dragon is angry or about to attack, giving off an odor of ozone
and sand. Their vibrant color makes blue dragons easy to spot in barren desert
surroundings. However, they often burrow into the sand so only part of their heads
dragons love to soar in the hot desert air, usually flying in the daytime when
temperatures are highest. Some nearly match the color of the desert sky and use
this coloration to their advantage.
dragons lair in vast underground caverns, where they also store their treasure.
Although they collect anything that looks valuable, they are most fond of gems-especially
blue dragons attack from above or burrow beneath the sands until opponents come
within 100 feet. Older dragons use their special abilities, such as hallucinatory terrain, in concert with these tactics to mask the land and improve their chances
to surprise the target. Blue dragons run from a fight only if they are severely
damaged, since they view retreat as cowardly.
Breath Weapon (Su): A blue dragon
has one type of breath weapon, a line of lightning.
Water (Sp): A blue dragon of any age can use this ability three times per
day. It works like the Create Water spell, except that the dragon can decide to
destroy water instead of creating it, which automatically spoils unattended liquids
containing water. Magic items (such as potions) and items in a creature's possession
must succeed on a Will save (DC equal to that of the dragon's frightful presence)
or be ruined. This ability is the equivalent of a 1st-level spell.
Imitation (Ex): A juvenile or older blue dragon can mimic any voice or sound
it has heard, anytime it likes. Listeners must succeed on a Will save (DC equal
to that of the dragon's frightful presence) to detect the ruse.
Other Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day-ventriloquism (adult or older);
1/day-hallucinatory terrain (old or older), veil (ancient or older), mirage arcana (great wyrm).
Skills: Bluff, Hide, and Spellcraft are considered class skills for blue dragons.
