13th Age: New Monsters Aplenty

image As mentioned in the description of the Deadly Delves: Reign of Ruin, there are over 20 new monsters in this adventure. A number of them are half dragons. Yes, this dragon has been busy! Right now I want to share with you two of those half dragons in this adventure. We hope you enjoy them in your own 13th Age adventures.

Half-Dragon Lizardman Brutes
This lizardman stands a full head taller than his savage brethren, his scales a deep, near-black green and his eyes a bright crimson red. Leathery wings spanning eight feet rise from his shoulders, and his facial structure is noticeably more primal and draconic than the rest of the Ixtupi.

Large 4th level wrecker [dragon]
Initiative +8

Stone-tip spear +10 vs. AC—15 damage.
Natural 16+: The lizardman brute can make a bite attack against the target or another creature engaged with it as a free action.

[Special trigger] Bite +10 vs. AC—10 damage, and the lizardman brute can make a ripping frenzy attack against the target as a standard action during its next turn if it’s engaged with that target.

[Special trigger] Ripping frenzy +8 vs. AC (3 attacks)—10 damage.

R: Thrown spear +8 vs. AC—15 damage.

C: Acid breath +9 vs. PD (1d3 nearby enemies)— 10 acid damage, and 5 ongoing acid damage.
Miss: 5 acid damage.

Flier: Half-dragon lizardman brutes are clumsy fliers, usually hovering only momentarily to attack with their spears or breath weapons.

Intermittent breath: Half-dragon lizardman brutes can use acid breath twice per battle, but never two turns in a row.

Resist acid 12+: When an acid attack targets this creature, the attacker must roll a natural 12+ on the attack roll or it only deals half damage.

Orsephia, Half-Dragon Sphinx
Imagine a great cat with the cruel countenance of a drow and the temper of a dragon, then make it a madcap genius. We promise you that Orsephia is worse.

R: Maddening Riddle +11 vs. MD—20 psychic damage.
Natural even hit: The target is stunned until the end of Orsephia’s next turn.
Natural odd hit: The target is confused (save ends).

Flier: Orsephia is a competent flier who uses the vaulted ceiling in her chamber to her advantage if forced to fight.

Intermittent breath: Orsephia can use acid breath twice per battle, but never two turns in a row.

Resist acid 12+: When an acid attack targets this creature, the attacker must roll a natural 12+ on the attack roll or it only deals half damage.
