PF2 The Universal Dragon, 2nd Edition


The subject of colour coded dragons came up in the General RPG forum and as I had made a "universal dragon" for PF1 I decided to see if I could quickly whip one up for PF2. The dragons in the Bestiary are a bit of a hodgepodge and I do not have any guidelines for monster creation so I did my best to guesstimate good proficiency bonuses. The only addition I made which is a bit of a departure from the standard rules is that I gave my adult dragon resistance 10 to both bludgeoning and slashing damage for those armour-like scales. That could easily be dropped though, and they could be given damage immunity based on their breath weapon instead.
