Conversion Notes: This package represents the minimum abilities of a young (16 to 25 year old) blue dragon from the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons role playing game. This write-up uses Champions 5th edition rules.
Blue dragons are a medium sized common dragon types. It is very intelligent. Although it can survive in any climate, it prefers deserts. They can breath a bolt of lightning or attack with their powerful claws and bite. Upon reaching 16 years of age a blue dragon can magically create or destroy water three times per day at will.
Although generally considered an evil race of dragons, player characters can play any alignment.
Blue dragons are extremely territorial and voracious. They love to spend long hours preparing ambushes for herd animals and unwary travelers, and they spend equally long hours dwelling on their success and admiring their trophies.
The size of a blue dragon's scales increases little as the dragon ages, although they do become thicker and harder. The scales vary in color from an iridescent azure to a deep indigo, retaining a glossy finish through all of the dragon's stages because the blowing desert sands polish them. This makes blue dragons easy to spot in barren desert surroundings. However, the dragons often conceal themselves, burrowing into the sand so only part of their heads are exposed.
Blue dragons love to soar in the hot desert air, usually flying in the daytime when temperatures are the highest. Some blue dragons nearly match the color of the desert sky and use this coloration to their advantage in combat.
Like most dragons they can live for over 1000 years, see in the dark, sense the presence of invisible things, are immune to sleep and hold spells, and have large wings which allow flight.
