Breath Weapon (Su):
A Styx dragon has two breath weapons: a 100-ft. line of acid (6d6 acid, Ref DC 25 half) that persists for 3 rounds (dealing half damage on the second round and one-quarter damage on the third round), or a 50-ft. cone of stupefying gas. Creatures within the gas must make a Fortitude save (DC 25 neg.) or take 6 points of Intelligence damage. DC Con-based.
With a successful grapple check, a Styx dragon can crush a grabbed opponent, dealing 4d8+24 bludgeoning damage.
Any creature hit by the dragonís bite or tail attack must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC 25 neg.) or contract Stygian wasting. The symptoms of the disease include flesh rotting away and hair falling out. The incubation period is 1 day, and the disease deals 1d6 points of Charisma damage. A victim must make three successful Fortitude saves in a row to recover from Stygian wasting (see Disease, page 292 of the Dungeon Masterís Guide).
Improved Grab (Ex):
To use this ability, the dragon must hit a Large or smaller creature with its tail blade attack. If it gets a hold, it can constrict in the same round. It can also attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.
Although Styx dragons are aquatic, they can survive indefinitely on land.
Styx Adaptation (Ex):
Styx dragons are immune to the harmful effects of the Styx, and they can breathe water.
