* Beryllinthranox is unique creature.

Beryllinthranox is one of the smallest Dragon Overlords, with a body length of but one hundred and fifty feet, plus a tail of nearly that length. However, her crafty intellect and menacing demeanor are apparent to those who have encountered the ancient wyrm. Beryllinthranox is a shrewd bargainer, diplomat, and manipulator of others. She is often amused and entertained by the failings of lesser creatures, but more often irritated and impatient. Those who fail her repeatedly earn the vengeful wrath of the Green Peril.


Beryllinthranox does not rely upon her physical power to defeat opponents, as she realises that there are enemies that might defeat even her. Indeed, if Beryl had not relied on her intelligence to out-maneuver foes, she might not have survived the Dragon Purge. Beryllinthranox loves magic, and will often target opponents from the wing with her spells and spell-like abilities, while her physical might shrugs off missile attacks.

Breath Weapon (Su): Beryllinthranox' breath weapon is a cone of corrosive (acid) gas 80 feet long. Creatures caught in the cone suffer 26d8 acid damage (Reflex save halves, DC 40).

Frightful Presence (Ex): Beryllinthranox can unsettle foes whenever she attacks, charges, or flies overhead. Creatures within a radius of 390 feet are subject to the fear if they have fewer than 41 HD.

An opponent that succeeds at a Will save (DC 37) remains immune to her fearful presence for one day. On a failure, creatures with 4 or fewer HD become panicked for 4d6 rounds and those with 5 or more HD become shaken for 4d6 rounds.

Water Breathing (Ex): Beryllinthranox can breathe underwater indefinitely and can freely use her breath weapon, spells, and other abilities while submerged.

Immunities (Ex): Beryllinthranox is immune to acid, sleep and paralysis effects.

Spells: Beryllinthranox casts arcane spells as a 19th-level sorcerer (save DC 17 + spell level). She has access to the domains of Aeromancy, Enchantment, and Transmutation, and can also cast spells from the domain of Sensitivity as arcane spells. See Magic in the Fifth Age for details on Fifth Age sorcery.

Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day — suggestion, dominate person; 1/day — command plants, plant growth. These are as the spells cast by a 19th-level sorcerer (save DC 17 + spell level).

Tail Sweep (Ex): Beryllinthranox can sweep with her tail as a standard action, affecting a half circle with a radius of 30 feet, centred on her rear. Creatures within the swept area are affected if they are Small or smaller. The sweep automatically deals 2d8+27 points of damage; affected creatures can attempt Reflex saves to take half damage (DC 40).

Blindsight (Ex): Beryllinthranox can ascertain creatures by nonvisual means with a range of 390 feet.

Keen Senses (Ex): Beryllinthranox sees four times as well as a human in low-light conditions and twice as well in normal light. She also has darkvision with a range of 1,300 feet.
