  • Intergalactic. In outer space, the dragon can survive in the void and fly at incredible speed. Travel times vary, but a trip within a single solar system should take 3d20 hours, and a trip beyond should take 3d20 days or more if the dragon knows the way to its destination. The dragon can carry one rider of one size category smaller than itself, four passengers two sizes smaller, eight passengers three sizes smaller, or 16 passengers four or more sizes smaller. Passengers are protected from the void of outer space.


  • Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d10 + 2) piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) fire damage.
  • Solar Breath (Recharge 5–6). The dragon exhales a solar flare in a 30-foot line that is 5 feet wide. Each creature in that line must succeed on a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw, taking 10 (3d6) radiant damage and 10 (3d6) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
  • Channel Life (3/Day). The dragon creates a corona of sunlight in a 30-foot radius centered on the dragon. All living creatures within the corona regain 18 (4d8) hit points. Undead within the corona must succeed on a DC 13 Constitution saving throw or take an equal amount of radiant damage and become blinded for 1 minute. On a successful save, an undead creature takes half as much damage and isn’t blinded.


A solar dragon glows like the sun, with burnished wings that shimmer with waves of heat and gleam like flames. A crown of horns decorates its head. Arrogant and proud, solar dragons see themselves as the originators of light and life in the vastness of space. They treat all living creatures with a kind of detached paternalism, regal creators deigning to involve themselves with their creations.
