  • Fortitude. If damage reduces the dundee dragon to 0 hit points, it must make a Constitution saving throw with a DC of 5 + the damage taken, unless the damage is from a critical hit. On a success, the dragon drops to 1 hit point instead.
  • Water Susceptibility. For every 5 feet the dundee dragon moves in water, or for every gallon of water splashed on it, it takes 1 cold damage.


  • Multiattack. The dundee dragon can use its Frightful Presence. It then makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its constrict.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (2d8 + 5) piercing damage.
  • Constrict. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one creature. Hit: 10 (1d10 + 5) bludgeoning damage, and the target is grappled (escape DC 17). Until this grapple ends, the creature is restrained, and the dundee dragon can’t constrict another target.
  • Frightful Presence. Each creature of the dragon’s choice within 120 feet of it and aware of it must succeed on a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or become frightened for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a creature’s saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the dundee dragon’s Frightful Presence for the next 24 hours.


  • Bloody Rampage. When the dundee dragon takes damage, it makes one Bite attack against a random creature within its reach.


This dragon possesses a serpentine body covered in green scales, gleaming ominously under the sunlight. Its eyes burn with a fiery glow, reflecting the rage and hunger that dwell within.

Also known as the Dragon of Strathmartine, the dundee dragon preys on unsuspecting villagers and instills fear throughout the region. It is most commonly associated with the well where a farmer’s daughters vanished and the dragon’s nest was discovered. The dragon’s presence left a lasting impact on the landscape, forever shaping the names and landmarks of the area.

The dundee dragon is a fearsome predator, hunting both livestock and humans alike. It possesses a voracious appetite and a relentless pursuit of prey. However, when immersed in water, the dragon’s movements become sluggish, rendering it vulnerable.

The dragon’s ferocity in battle make it a formidable opponent. Its bites can rend flesh, and its powerful tail can constrict and restrain its victims. Encountering a dundee dragon is a harrowing experience.
