Aberrant dragons - first shot at true dragons

Attached is (or should be) a file describing two true dragons. Neither the CR nor the SR is final yet, so I look especially in those areas for feedback. But general feedback is welcome, too, of course. ;)

No problem, I'll find something. :)

A few things:

I've noticed a few errors. At some age categories, the brainstealer dragon has psionic abilities, but no manifester level (that's what I get for trusting the MMII too much :eek:).
The extract ability is not complete. It should obviously read "extracts the opponent's brain, instantly killing it." :rolleyes:
The second sentence in the eyestalks ability is rather pointless, as the first sentence describes the process more or less flawlessly.

Also, does the layout appear botched (Headers directly within tables, tables that are fused together, etc), or is it all right?

why don't you download it and find out? :D

No, actually it looks good, but I like my own table setup better, for obvious reasons... (It's mine) :D

And as I said, I'm very tempted to use them...

I don't trust my word version, the layouting of my monster file is killing me again and again. :D

Actually, I seem to have a better grip of it now, but I still don't really trust it.

Not by me... But maybe if you bug Boz, Erica, or Scott long enough they'll tell you what they think... I think that goes for Magus and Ias also...

What nothing on my Microsoft joke? I feel hurt... (No not really)

You want opinions, Knight Otu? They're both great, especially the brainstealer. I can just see a paragon brainstealer wyrm, being worshipped by a primitive clan of illithids as a god.
And they'd be about half right.

Demiurge out.

Well, Krishnath, I got the idea simply because it hadn't been done before. Since the illithids once had a great civilization that has since been lost (probably in the Gith Wars), perhaps there are pockets that have since fallen into savagery. Just a thought.

Demiurge out.

I do like the idea, though it is not exactly the background I had in mind. :)

I envision them more as a type of dragon that would become more common/active in apocalyptic times, either as "side effects" or as the forces behind those apocalyptic times.

Villager
Hmm... I would go with side effects.... :D

As for Half-Fiend Red Dragons, If it's chaotic evil you'd better not, as Chaotic Evil creatures tend to be psychotic megalomaniacs bent on the destruction of the world through the summoning of elder horrors such as Cthulhu or Shub-Niggurath. Phew, that was a long sentence... :D
