At birth, a copper dragon?s scales have a ruddy brown color with a metallic tint. As the dragon gets older, the scales become finer and more coppery, assuming a soft, warm gloss by young adult age. Very old dragons? scales pick up a green tint. A copper dragon?s pupils fade with age, and the eyes of great wyrms resemble glowing turquoise orbs.


A copper dragon appreciates wit and usually doesn?t harm creatures that can relate a joke, humorous story, or riddle the dragon has not heard before. It quickly gets annoyed with anyone who doesn?t laugh at its jokes or accept its tricks with good humor. It likes to taunt and annoy opponents into giving up or acting foolishly.
An angry copper dragon prefers to mire foes using transmute rock to mud. The dragon pushes trapped opponents into the mud or snatches and carries them aloft. A copper dragon tries to draw airborne enemies into narrow, stony gorges where it can use its spider climb ability and maneuver them into colliding with the walls.
Breath Weapon (Su): A copper dragon has two types of breath weapon, a line of acid and a cone of slow gas. Creatures within the cone must succeed on a Fortutude save or be slowed for 1d6 rounds plus 1 round per age category of the dragon.
Spider Climb (Ex): A copper dragon can climb on stone surfaces as though using the spider climb spell.
Spell-Like Abilities: 2/day?stone shape (adult or older); 1/day?transmute rock to mud or mud to rock (old or older), wall of stone (ancient or older), move earth (great wyrm).
Skills: Bluff, Hide, and Jump are considered class skills for copper dragons.
