Special Abilities

Caustic Spit (Ex) A dragontoad can spit a glop of corrosive slime that burst with fire a moment later, dealing 2d4 points of acid damage and 2d4 points of fire damage to a creature within 30 feet on a successful ranged touch attack. A creature struck has to make a Reflex saving throw (DC 15) or becomes entangled with the sticky goo, suffering the damage each round for the next 1d4+1 rounds. The creature can take a full round action to attempt to free itself by making a successful Reflex saving throw, Escape Artist, or Strength check (DC 15). A dragon toad can use her caustic spit every 1d3 rounds. The saving throw DC is Constitution-based.

Mighty Jaws (Ex) A dragontoad powerful jaws add twice the creature's Strength bonus to damage inflicted and inflict triple damage on a confirmed critical hit.

Vestigial Wings (Ex) A dragontoad is always treated as if it had a running start when jumping and never suffers falling damage as long as it is conscious and capable of taking actions.

Dragontoads are draconic creatures that cross the line between reptiles and amphibians, a barely sapient, primal branch of dragonkind, or so it is speculated, though a stories of a a progeny of a dragon turned into a toad surface from time to time. Dragontoads don't seem to care anyway.


Greater dragontoads (CR 5) have giant simple template, more functional wings giving them flying speed of 40 ft. with clumsy maneuverability, and more caustic spit dealing 2d6 points of acid and 2d6 points of fire damage per round.
