I created this for an adventure I'm DMing, and I thought I should share it with the world. However, due to this, I only have the young version.

This is an undead dragon made from its own perpetually burning ashes, created by an evil divine ritual. They are in permanent service to their creator.

Miscellaneous checks:
History DC 35: This creature resembles Jarthrax, a primordial in the shape of a dragon made of flame.

It tries to surprise enemies, either from "unsubsiding" or using Flame Teleport or a summoning match to teleport in, unleashing Flameburst as it enters. It then attempts to immobilize ranged attackers with Ash-Grab so that it can Slam melee fighters into oblivion. Whenever it is recharged, the dragon uses Flamewall so that it can teleport around the battlefield.

Also: when these dragons are created by means of a not-yet-created ritual, five summoning matches attuned to that particular dragon.

Summoning Match
When struck, the attuned dragon immediately Flame Teleports to the match, regardless of its location.

These were originally created by the Unnamed One, a powerful mummy lord who was the head of a cult of flame and undeath, known as the White Flame.

There isn't a description written for Flame Body. Typo?

Yes, typo. I shall fix it presently (literally).
