Help me build a radioactive Dragon.


Homebrew and House Rules


So I want to build a Dragon that’s type is radioactiive. I’m trying to do a little work as possible from scratch and doing more of swap abilities of a Say a Red or Black dragon and tweek some abilities. Like add a radioactive aura (depending size/age is sevarity), breath weapon would be fire that is requires a fort save for radioactive damage.

What Dragon do you think would be the easiest to convert and would you change the CR?


Add Poison Dragon template to Fire Dragon, rename it to Radiation. That's about all you need to do. ^^


Ha!

You are making the Plutonium Dragon!

I'd say just pick a Dragon that already exists and add a DC vs. Constitution Drain in his immediate aura and lingers after it leaves an area.


I never really thought about this before, but the Plutonium Dragon must be Lawful Good: Plutonium is a metal, after all.

Chaotic good and his name is hulk if he is a green dragon base


Lawful or Chaotic Neutral; I have a hard time seeing a “good” dragon poisoning and potentially mutating local local life passively.

That Poison Dragon is pretty cool.

I’ve considered giving it mutations off of of the mutant template but decided it has a better chance at creating mutants then becoming one.


I've actually seen a Chaotic Neutral uranium dragon discussed elsewhere on the internet, don't know if they actually provided stats for it though.

Personally, I like the idea of starting with a red dragon and adding radiation effects to its aura and breath weapon, as well as possibly adding the (earth) subtype in addition to the (fire) subtype.


Plutonium dragons are unstable, so it might keep changing it's personality.

Red dragon, radioactive mutant, Remind you of anything?

Maybe it's not her fault that she is toxic. Think Dr. Manhattan or Rapuccini's Daughter.

Of course. Totally.

And there be mutant versions with 2 heads, one that flies, one from space. Maybe create different versions based on giant gorillas, giant moths, or giant turtles. Maybe a Wizard makes a Colossal Adamantine Golem Version and climbs inside it....


I promise kaiju were not the inspiration but definitely has similarities

I wouldn't think any less of you if they were.


I had the idea for at least a year or a dragon that aura was radioactive and was the source of strange abundance of mutations in an areas where they never existed before.


Dinosaur fossils may have been the inspiration for dragon legends.
Drakes are practically a not so missing link between dinos and dragons.
