What types of breath weapon (if any) do Dracoliches get? Is it the same as in life? Cuz I'd love to see a Cone of Withering. Does such a thing exist?
Not until you just invented it. I really like that concept for the dracolich. Not quite a level drain but a life force depletion nonetheless.

Forgotten Realms has a monster called the Deep Dragon which is, in fact, a true dragon that lives in the Underdark. It's breath weapon is a Cone of Enervation, bestowing up to 2d4 negative levels at Great Wyrm.

That is, and I mean this literally... awesome.


Oh yeah, what about the Faerie Dragon's breath weapon? Isn't it a cone of Euphoria Gas? Where's the love?

Get real, they shouldn't even be considered as real dragons. In fact, those overgrown butterflies should be wiped from the pages of gaming history.

Dude, you seriously need to take a hit of the faerie dragon and mellow out, man.

EDIT: And it is NOT a gateway dragon! That's a myth projected by a repressive Theological-Oligarchical combine!


I've actually used faery dragons in ways that astounded and delighted the players. Your mileage may vary.

I was always fond of the Shadow Dragon's Energy Drain Breath Weapon. Makes Shadow Dragons even more deadly than your average wyrm.

And sorry to the Roger Eberts above; but I happen to love disaster movies (even bad ones). So I own (and love to watch) both The Core and The Day After Tomorrow. And Armageddon. And Deep Impact. And Earthquake. The list goes on and on.

;p

If I could think of a good alias for you, I would post in response. But I can't. I have failed you Saern.


Ha! I'm... unaliasable!

(Don't feel bad- I was going to back myself up with another alias, but I couldn't think of one for me, either :( )

NEARS I can tell, it's only getting started.

I shall cut down the tallest tree in all the forest with ... a ... cone of herring!

Me likey Cone of Envervation. I would love to describe its effect on a whole mess of PCs at once. But if it could wither limbs as well. . . Oooh. Nasty stuff.

I voted for Line of Lightning earlier, but I have been giving a lot of thought to a Line of Acid as well. Its just fun imagining a PC getting hit with the equivalent of a firehose full of flesh melting acid.

This is of course, opposed to the Faerie Dragon's "Hit of Acid" breath weapon. Although both can cause PCs to melt into the floor if they fail their save.

Wow. I didn't expect THAT to happen...

I agree with Saern, this alias thing is going crazy.


Lighten up zombie..this is fun.


One for "Saern" could be "SANER."

Hehehe!

You'll never find me lucky charms!

Yes!

I vote for that one. A cone (line?) of bees.

That alias is f#!~ing creepy.


The phoenix may fly, only when his feathers are grown...

Also, a wise bird knows to stay away from leprechauns... I mean, look at that evil grin.


I am partial to clouds of petrifying gas like a gorgons, myself.


Acid line all the way, though fire is a good classic. I don't think a paladin could hold a shield to that, it would just corrode. Go Black Dragons!!!! Poor pallies, haha I laugh in their holy faces!

Sir Smashes Alot...all for the black dragon!


My vote is for the faerie dragon euphoria gas cloud.

Hey man, you got some faerie dragon breathe?

Wasn't thier a dungeon adventure where a group of goblins held a faerie dragon so as to get high?

Nah, man, that was just sumpin' we were talkin' about on the way to the convenience store to get munchies when we had the munchies.

(Yes, I think it actually was, but I don't remember how long ago)

It was the closest thing to a leprechaun I could find in the avatars, but now that I did...it's affecting my mind.

Follow the rainbow! It'll lead you to me pot o' gold!!!

ha ha ha. That's from the Simpsons. There was a piece in an issue of Dragon that talked about Dracoliches and one of the examples of the undead dragons was the Breather of Locusts. Check it out and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Eh? The chlorine gas is still there, it just does acid damage.

But if we really want to nit-pick, the green dragon's breath is never explicitly identified as chlorine (though the dragon as a whole does smell of one). Back in D&D cartoon, when Tiamat attacked the kids with her green head, all they needed was to cover their nostrils and mouths and eyes, but Diana and Bobby, the most exposed skin-wise, weren't acid-burned.


I gotta go with cone of fire. I mean come on, as stated previously, it's instant Dinty Paladin Stew. Like the shirts say, they're crunchy & taste good with ketchup.


Like several others, I have to go with Cone of Fire because it's so classic.


I am torn between the shadow dragon's energy drain (a cone at that) and the Greyhawk (steel) dragon's constitution drain energy weapon. Both fall under other so that is where I voted.

Back in 1st edition chlorine gas was the green dragon's attack.

I guess one could use the D&D cartoon to illustrate a game rule... but that lil barbarian Bobby would have fallen his first day in the realm, down into a sloshy puddle of Bobbysauce. ;)


Line of Lightning. I just got a thing for blues. always thought the reds were too typical and the blues can have a reason why they do the things they do and i just fell in love with em plus its just cool

Fire


I voted Cone of Fire because it is a classic dragon ability (and ... Fire...Heh...Heh).

My second favorite would be the violet, crystaline lozenge from the Amethyst Dragon in Monster Manual 2 (They can also breathe a line of concussive force, but that's not quite as cool). My third favorite would be the cone of dehydration from the topaz dragon.

The Exchange

i choose a line of lighning cause i'm a blue dragon fan, but the coolest has to be the cone of weakening gas (think of all the strength drain ha ha ha!!)

Dark Archive

I prefer the cones to the lines in general, and I really like cone of acid because I can describe in horrid detail the flesh dripping from the bones of the players after they get nailed by it. Think "Robocop."

Cone of Acid.

LSD, that is...


I like the combo breaths, like the pyroclastic's.

That, or oddball ones like the gloom dragon's apathy gas.


The amethyst dragon's "exploding violet lozenge" is interesting and sort of grody at the same time.


Not as grody as the phlegm dragon. Oh, wait, he just has a really bad cold...

Line of Lightning because blue dragons are lawfulevil

Why?

Hmm. Well Cone of paralysis gas is always fun. disarm the pesky intruders, gut their mage and cleric is a generally good idea, then sit down and tell the surviors who they work for.

Cone of energy drain is just terrifying. Shadow dragons are scary.

in the end though, Line of lightning. Got to love my blues.

(Storytime. Draconomicon says that blues build up static electricity. We had a party with a blue and a silver in it. Blue kept touching the silver, shocking him ;-)


Spoiler:
I should have picked other. I love the flaming oil spat by and orange dragon! Oh and the spoilers are just cuz I've been away for a while and I wanted to try some of the new code listed at the bottom of the post thing. ;)
