Is there any way to remove or neutralise Immunity from an energy type from a creature


Rules Questions


I ask because in the Kingmaker Module it talks about finding a Silver Dragon that has been killed by a Black Dragon and the corpse has clearly been massively damaged by Acid.
But Silver Dragons are immune to Acid.

Is this just an error by the Module writers or is there a way that the Acid Immunity could have been neutralised , even if only for a short period?

Thanks


Hmm I thought silver dragons were only immune to cold at first but upon looking it up acid as well. Maybe their mind was where mine was and just focusing on the cold immunity since their breath is cold.


Or the Black Dragon mutilated the Silver's corpse - assuming the immunity ends upon death.


I always assumed the scales were immune to the same thing the dragon was even after death because of the dragon scale plates having immunity to their dragons element. Hmm except I don't think silver dragon scale is immune to both acid and cold. Yeah I think this one is over my head.


A miserable weapon can cut down resistances, but not immunities. And it seems unlikely that a dragon would be wielding one. It might have minions, I suppose.

My bet is on writer error. :-(


It's probably an error of the AP writer. I can't recall any general rules about disabling immunities or the such.


I feel like their was a spell then realized I was thinking of flare from Final fantasy.


According to Ultimate Equipment, dragonhide is immune to everything that the living dragon was.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Oh nice. So then I would have to say even a dead dragon is still immune.

Also armor is immune to sleep and paralysis yay!


Well, its hide is. But maybe its dead innards aren't? Grisly speculation... it's not even 8:00 AM and I'm already talking about dissolving a dead dragon's guts with acid. What's wrong with me?


See now I would have to assume a black dragon guts are pretty immune to acid since it breaths it but I guess it could be up in the air for a non acid breathing dragon. I think writer error might be making the most sense.

Damn straight.

There's only one solution. And the future interview will go something like this:

"So, what led you to become a wildly successful gaming mogul, conquering the industry and ultimately purchasing the renowned Paizo corporation?"
"Well, I just really wanted a table avatar on the messageboards."

You laugh, but in 1975, Steve Jobs doodled the outline of an apple and thought "Man, that would look good on the back of lots of stuff." #TheMoreYouKnow

Writer error.

Some spells and mythic abilities can bypass non-mythic immunities, yet nothing is mythic in Kingmaker.


I think that entire post might be made up especially that apple part.

When you get right down to it though, isn't, like, everything made up?

Yeah... that's the ticket...

I would argue with you but I feel at this point we are derailing pretty hard.

I always thought that dragon was killed by other means and then the black dragon just continuously acid bathed its body to either disrespect or predigest it. I could imagine the creature's hide being acid proof but maybe not it's insides.

Scarab Sages

I suspect they just didn't realise it was immune to acid but there are weird thongs out there like the grayflame weapon which you can channel positive or negative energy into getting different coloured flames that negate specific immunities and the monks fists negate certain resistances as well so there may be something.


The black Dragon used a Polymorph Any Object scroll to turn the corpse of the silver Dragon into wood, acid breathed on it, and a few hours later the Polymorph wore off - but the damage didn't.

The editor deleted that part of the story with a note of "too wordy, too deep in the weeds here".


Kineticists can ignore immunities and resistances with specific attacks.
