Bestiary: Gold Dragon: Weakening breath


Rules Questions

Lantern Lodge

Weakening Breath (Su) Instead of a cone of fire, a gold dragon
can breathe a cone of weakening gas. Creatures within the
cone must succeed on a Fortitude save or take 1 point of
Strength damage per age category (Will save half ).

What does that mean
fort save to ignore breath all together, and then if you fail a will for half the strength damage? I've never seen an ability that called for two saves, but I can't find errata on it. Is that what that means?
