SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Ice Walk. The dragon can move across and climb icy surfaces without needing to make an ability check. Additionally, difficult terrain composed of ice or snow doesn’t cost it extra movement.
  • Tunneler. The ice dragon can burrow through solid rock at half its burrow speed and leaves a 10-foot-diameter tunnel in its wake.
  • Harmed by Running Water. The ice dragon takes 20 acid damage if it ends its turn in running water.
  • Aversion to Sneezing. If something makes the ice dragon sneeze, it has disadvantage on attack rolls and ability checks until the end of its next turn.
  • Heated Body. A creature that touches the ice dragon or hits it with a melee attack while within 5 feet of it takes 10 (3d6) fire damage.

ACTIONS

  • Multiattack. The dragon makes three attacks: one with its bite and two with its claws.
  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +11 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 17 (2d10 + 6) piercing damage plus 4 (1d8) fire damage.
  • Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +14 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d6 + 6) slashing damage.
  • Fire Breath (Recharge 5-6). The dragon exhales fire in a 60-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw, taking 54 (12d8) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

ABOUT

This white dragon slides down the snow with its arms and legs tucked underneath it.

Native to the tiny island nation of Isa Poso, these dragons constantly breathe steam, which can harm creatures vulnerable to fire. It can breathe fire but is loath to do so in frigid environments, as they are harmed by water.

Adept Burrowers. Ice dragons build lairs by tunneling out of a huge, snowy hill and lighting a roaring fire at one end. Ice dragons drink flame as other creatures drink water, and always keep a huge pile of trees burning in their cavern lairs. They stack great piles of frozen meat against the walls for eating later.
