    Default Goldenborn Colossia (PEACH)

    Goldenborn Colossia
    This hulking beast stands nearly twenty feet tall. It has the head of a golden dragon, but the body of a humanoid. Its shining golden skin ripples over bunched muscles, and it carries a gigantic scimitar and tower shield. You almost think it's a statue until it turns to look at you. You get the feeling that going against it would be a very bad idea.

    Dragonbane
    A goldenborn colossia deals an extra 3d6 damage to creatures of the dragon type or the dragonblood subtype.

    Aura of Fear
    Any creature who is not a metallic dragon or a goldenborn colossia must make a DC 26 Will save upon seeing a goldenborn colossia. Creatures who fail with less than 6 HD flee in terror for 1d6+1 rounds. THose who fail and have more than 6 HD are shaken until either the goldenbron colossia is out of sight or the affected creature strikes the colossia. This is a nonmagical mind-affecting fear effect. The save is Charisma based.

    Breath Weapon
    Once every 1d4+1 rounds, a goldenborn colossia can breate a 30' cone of fire, dealing 6d6 points of fire damage to all creatres captured in the cone. Affected creatures may attempt a DC 25 Reflex save for half damage. The save DC is Constitution based.

    Goldenborn colossia are towering warriors built to defend any fortress for as long as is feasibly possible. With their natural abilties coupled with their amazing fortitude, the colossia are almost fotresses themselves.

    Strategies and Tactics
    Goldenborn colossia act as defenders and willingly let themselves get hurt to defend their friends. Frequently they open combat by using their wall of force spell-like ability, either to divide their opponents or protect their backs.

    Society
    Goldenborn colossia speak infrequently and lumber slowly, unless they are on the battlefield. When they fight, they turn into whirling windmills of defensive destruction.

    Treasure
    Goldenborn colossia have no more possessions than they carry on themselves. Advanced goldenborn colossia may have better equipment, but this is due to them claiming it from a fallen dragon's horde rather than purchasing it themselves. Most valuables they find they give to charity or to a gold dragon.

    Goldenborn Colossia with Class Levels
    Most goldenborn colossia take levels in the ranger class, as it compliments their natural talents as well as their Dragonbane ability. Others take levels in paladin or cleric.

    It's one of 2 things:

    1: Someone is trying to break it.
    2: Someone is playtesting it against one of their characters.

    Probably 2. I think this is an fantastic creature. Excellent job. :D
    Funny, I always figured I'd be killed by a paladin.
    So, what you're saying is we rolled a 1 on our credit check?

    Yeah, I decided I'd try it out. Still trying to decide if I like it better or not.

    It looks interesting but I find the format hard to read.
