Breath Weapon [two-actions] (evocation, primal) The dragon breathes a flurry of piercing crystals that deal 12d6 piercing damage in a 40-foot cone (DC 30 basic Reflex save). They can’t use Breath Weapon again for 1d4 rounds.

Crystallize Flesh [free-action] (primal, transmutation) Trigger The crystal dragon damages a creature made of flesh with a jaws Strike; Frequency once per day; Effect The dragon embeds transformative crystals in the creature’s flesh. The creature must attempt a DC 30 Fortitude save.

Critical Success The target is unaffected.

Success The target is slowed 1 for 1 round as portions of its flesh turn crystalline.

Failure The target is slowed 1 and must attempt a Fortitude save at the end of each of its turns; this ongoing save has the incapacitation trait. On a failed save, the slowed condition value increases by 1 (or by 2 on a critical failure). A successful save reduces the slowed condition value by 1. A creature unable to act due to the slowed condition from Crystallize Flesh is petrified permanently, transforming into a crystalline statue. The effect ends if the creature is petrified or the slowed condition is removed.

Critical Failure As failure, but the target is initially slowed 2.
