KS hates me for this. I'll go home tonight and do a translation and compare the two. I don't have any points of reference, so from here he looks very "eh, okay, it's a dragon." I can't figure why you have the Breath Weapon as an EB, though, seeing the damn thing can melt rocks. Mmm... UEP rules...

I'll do a 3.5 edition version; it may not be that different, but I'll also employ my VPP rules to give slappy a Magic Pool and see how that turns out. Like I said, I have to do mine and then look at yours and go "Hmm, okay, I see this... this... OH, that's why it looks like that!" I'll post it when it's done. Prolly take me about an hour or so.

Reminds me of the Conversion I did of the entire Gold Dragon line, which I actually converted as a divine dragon but used the Gold as a base. Still haven't gotten around to posting it yet though XD. Anyways, looks good, maybe I'll try converting the Red Dragon into a Fire Dragon ;)

Actually, here's a question, why do you have +3 INT Only for sense rolls instead of another Enhanced senses point? Especially since that +3 INT won't actually give him another +1 on any rolls (unless there's another INT buff somewhere I didn't notice).

 

Also, for his Sorcerer levels that he should have you should use KS's sorcerer stuff. Although what I'd do is give him a Fire VPP representing that he has control over Fire not Magic, but that's just me. :ugly:

Re: Shadowcats Vault of Insanity: Adult Red Dragon

 

the borrowed 3E monster manual I have doesnt talk about reds being able to shapeshift, unless I was looking in the wrong place, I was using the alertness feat conversion from Killer Shrikes site

Re: Shadowcats Vault of Insanity: Adult Red Dragon

 

Dont know about 3e and beyond but red dragons (like gold & silver) used to be able to polymorph into human form.

 

 

When I read that, I was like the travelling gnome... "No way!" lol

 

I checked my old AD&D books (1st and 2nd Ed) - I find no mention of the red dragon being able to shapeshift in either edition.

 

I recall reading somewhere (perhaps an old Dragon Magazine article) that any red dragon would loathe to lower itself to such an inferior physical form.... :idjit:

 

Dragons were always my favorite monsters!

Maybe I missed it, but what does it do to accomplish the age old dragon ability to generate fear? PRE attack or something else?

this is an adult age dragon' date=' but the PRE based fear attack gets stronger as the dragon gets older[/quote']

Ah! That makes sense. :)
