This medium-sized dragon has glossy-scarlet scales. It has razor sharp-looking teeth and claws.


Poresche, like most red dragons, makes snap decisions, preferring to attack with his bite and claws, leaving his breath weapon as a last resort.

Breath Weapon (Su): Cone of fire, 30ft long, every 1d4 rounds; damage 4d10, Reflex half DC 18.

Caster Level: 1st level.

Sorcerer Spells Known (5/4; save DC 11 + spell level): 0 –detect magic, light, read magic, resistance; 1st –magic missile, true strike.


See Poresche's entry on the Dragonlance Lexicon.

**Poresche's abilities are that of a red dragon of twice his age. This change affects all of his special abilities (such as spells or breath weapon), AC, speed and ability scores but does not effect his HD, base attack, saves, skills or feats. Unlike other red dragons and due to the circumstances of his hatching, Poresche has a neutral alignment.
