A Greater Dragon is a large reptilian creature with covered in thick, bony scales with four powerful claws, two large wings, a long tail and a head. Dragons are creatures of the elements and every dragon is attuned to one or more element.
Dragons are the bridge between the elemental and physical world, acting as ambassadors between the two. The greatest dragons are responsible for shaping Saros and nearly all life on it. Greater Dragons are also known as True Dragons and all dragons have very similar traits, but they are divided into three categories based on their differences: Primal Dragons, greater dragons, and and lesser dragons. Any creature that is related to dragons, has draconic qualities such as elemental sense, or resembles characteristics of a dragon but is not truly a dragon is considered to be Dragonkin. (More...)

- Michael McElrath 07:18, 7 May 2012 (PDT): Reduced Health to 4*CON+2*CNV and Energy to 4*FOC+2*CNV. I don't know why they were 5&3 before. I assume it had to do with the higher rate of damage.
Okay, here is a problem I need help with. Attacks that deal additional effects. For example, Frostbolt
Lets say we have a character that has the frostbolt spell. Here is the current process for the attack.
- When the attack resolves, the attacker rolls 1d20 + their arcana skill, say 4dS (they're good at it).
- They get 15 on the attack roll, and 3 successes. Their total is 18. Awesome, they hit.
- They deal damage (not important)
- Then, they roll an additional number of dS equal to their intelligence modifier. Lets say 4dS, and they get 2.
- The attacker then adds this 2 to the modifier of their attack roll. This was actually done for efficiency, and it basically means if you did better, you do better overall. Their total is now 5
- This number is then compared to the relative defense. for Frostbolt, it is Fortitude. If they beat the defenders fortitude then the additional effect goes off.
Does this work? I feel like it is awkward. Data has to transfer from the initial attack roll to a secondary attack. I need feedback.
