Earth Dragon

Earth Dragon by Forrest Imel
We have new releases coming along shortly with many things in various states of editing and a whole whack of art coming in. Right now, I should be working on Monsters Unleashed but I do not like my work on the Ioun Beholder so it is time to break away from that.

One of our newest artists is Forrest Imel. You can see Forrest's work here.

The image to the right is a piece of stock art we are selling with Forrest. Forrest had created this piece for his own use but allowed us to license it for stock art sale. Currently, he doesn't have any statistics so I thought I might take a moment to do them up here.

Earthstrike (Ex) As a full-round action the earth dragon can strike the ground with incredible force. It makes a trip attack CMB +13 against all opponents standing within 30 ft. of it. This action does not provoke attacks of opponent. Any creature tripped is knocked prone in the square they are in and suffer 2d6 points of nonlethal damage.

Earth Dragons, better known as World Breakers are terrible creatures who revel in the destruction of objects. They travel the desert wastes of Porphyra and shatter any settlement they come upon. It is unclear if Earth Dragons were native to Porphyra before the Grand Reconstruction or if they are a more recent immigrant. Some have suggested that the Earth Dragons are minions of The Lord of the Burning Throne, Fenris Kul. Regardless of their original, Earth Dragons present one of the most constant threats to the people of the desert wastes.
