Fragile Wings When the drake skeleton is reduced to fewer than half its Hit Points, it can no longer fly. If it’s aloft when this happens, it crashes immediately but can use the tatters of its wings to soften the landing, treating the fall as 20 feet shorter to calculate falling damage.

Speed 20 feet, fly 40 feet

Melee [one-action] fangs +20, Damage 2d8+12 piercing

Melee [one-action] tail +20 (reach 10 feet), Damage 2d4+12 bludgeoning

Draconic Frenzy [two-actions] The skeletal drake makes two Fangs Strikes and one Tail Strike in any order.


Moving with sinuous grace, these flying drake skeletons are held aloft by rotting membranes stretched between their bony wings. Although just as mindless as other skeletons, skeletal drakes maintain much of the draconic ferocity and raw spite they possessed in life, allowing them to attack viciously.
