#RPG #DnD – 5e – The Pseudointellectual Dragon

Tiny dragon, neutral good

Small, drab dragons who hoard unconventional (meaning wrong) lore, and expound loudly and at length on subjects they know nothing about.

Some perversely masochistic magicians have them as familiars, enjoying the opportunity they provide to hone their rhetorical skill. Other pseudointellectual dragons find productive employment as journalists, sages, loremasters, cultural critics, Inhuman Resources department heads and sensitivity readers.

These roles will suffice until Talk Radio or social media are invented in whatever fantasy realm they find themselves.

Challenge: 1/4 (50 XP)
Armor Class: 13 (natural armor)
Hit Points: 5 (2d4)
Speed:15 ft, fly 60 ft.

STR: 6 (−2) DEX: 15 (+2) CON: 10 (+0) INT: 10 (+0) WIS: 10 (+0) CHA: 15 (+2)

Skills: Deception +4, Any Intelligence Skill +2
Senses: blindsight 10 ft, darkvision 60 ft, passive Perception 11.
Languages: Understands Common and Draconic, and can bullshit in either.
Ripe Bullshit: The pseudointellectual dragon has advantage on Charisma (Deception) checks that rely on the spoken word.
Magic Resistance: The pseudointellectual dragon has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
Limited Knowledge: The pseudointellectual dragon ignores any roll higher than 10 on an Intelligence-based roll, taking the 10 instead.

Actions
Bite: Melee Weapon Attack:+4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage.
Bullshit Breath (Recharge 5-6): The pseudointellectual dragon utters a confusing babble of nonsense in a 15 ft cone. Any creature within that area that can comprehend Common (or draconic) must make an Intelligence Save against a DC11 or suffer one of the random effects of the Confusion spell.
