Special abilities Edit
An adult gold dragon has the usual dragon immunities to paralysis, mind-affecting, and sneak attack, and it has permanent true seeing.
This creature can use its fire dragon breath and weaken dragon breath each thrice per day and its aura of dragon fear once per day. Additionally it can cast, as a spell-like ability, blindness/deafness, charm person, lightning bolt and magic missile each twice per day with a caster level of 7.
- Like all the metallic dragons, the gold dragon is of the commoner faction and, as a result, is non-hostile.
