Why do they have the earth subtype? I'm not objecting here, I just don't understand it.

That combined with the theme of Dragon's teeth just makes me think of those skeletal warriors from greek myth. :smallbiggrin:

Most dragons have an elemental subtype so I decided to give them one as well. These ones charged with the elemental of earth which strengthens their skin, teeth, and bone.

As for the Dragon's Teeth, I just got an idea for my next creature. :smalltongue:

I've started to add in Elemental Draketooth. The first of which is Ash Draketooth.

Nice creature!

Is spell resistance 6 even worth it? If I understand the mechanic right, a 1st-level caster could reliably beat it.

I based it off a Celestial Dog which is where the SR 6 comes from. Favour-wise they have the draconic resistance to magic, but it is so weak that it rarely protects it.

Also I've now added the Abyssal Draketooth stats to the Elemental Draketooth list.

I like these. The fluff is good.

For the Abyssal Draketooth, with 4d12 HD, the average is 24, not 9. I assume a copy-paste error?

Thanks. :smallsmile:
And I've fixed the average HP. (Another thanks for noticing).

Edit: Just so everyone knows I'll be going through a mix of every two elements in my campaign setting as such it might take a week or so for me to make every single Draketooth I have planned.

Also does anyone have any ideas for Earth + Positive, Fire + Negative, Positive + Wood, or Water + Wood?

Edit Edit: Just added in the Misty Draketooth.

Verdant Drake. A earth drake with lots of fauna on it. Possibly attracting insects/ small vermin to live on it.


Fire + Negative

Ashen Draketooth.


Positive + Wood

I would make a Draketooth that grows fruits that has healing properties.


Water + Wood

I have no idea.

Water and Wood... maybe some association with algae, kelp, or some kind of aquatic fungus? They could have an SLA similar to 'obscuring mist', except refluffed as being green goop (algae) or something of that nature.

I liked this so much just finished it and put it in the OP. :smallbiggrin:


Ashen Draketooth.
I accidently put Fire + negative in that list. Ash Draketooth is already Fire + Negative. :smallredface:

I'll probably make this one next. Goodberrys and magic pears. :smallamused:

Interesting... Kelp has a few spells for it, but I like the Algae idea more. If I can't find some spells which work with it properly I'll just make some. :smalltongue:
