    Default [4e] Coin Dragon (PEACH)

    Inspired by this thread, what do you think?

    Coin Dragon
    Coin Dragons are created to protect vast hordes of treasure. Or rather, they are created so vast hordes can protect themselves. Originally created by an ancient and clever Red dragon, so he could go out (in search for more treasure) without worrying about some conniving adventurer stealing anything. They have since evolved, and coin dragons without an owner become fearsome dragons in their own right.

    Coin Dragon Lore
    A character knows the following information about coin dragons with a successful Arcana or Dungeoneering check.
    DC 15: Coin dragons were created to protect the hordes they were made from, using the treasure as a weapon. They remain dormant, appearing as a pile of treasure, until disturbed.
    DC 20: Coin dragons can usually be found in some remote hideaway or deep within an ancient ruin, remnants or an older empire or elder wyrm. They spew coins from their maw in a bludgeoning breath.
    DC 25: By absorbing coins and items, these dragons can heal themselves. They even take on the properties of the magic they have consumed.

    Coin Dragon Tactics
    Preferring to surprise intruders, coin dragons will lie still, looking like nothing more than an unguarded pile of treasure, until their prey has come within their reach. A coin dragon will typically open with with frightful presence, and then spend an action point to bite a stunned foe with a weapon. On the next round it will attempt to absorb the dropped item it it's still unattended, and spend it's other action point to catch as many enemies as possibly with it's breath weapon. It will then use draconic greed, switching it with bite if absorption could be used (and for OAs).
    More powerful coin dragons will use treasure's promise as much as possible before attacking, in hopes of gaining control of minions for the fight (which will then surrender their items without a fight once everyone else is taken care of).

    DM Note: A coin dragon is it's own treasure. All the coins and items used to make it in the Living Horde ritual spill into a pile upon the coin dragon's death, and are retrievable. This includes any items it has absorbed.

    Living Horde(ritual)
    Spoiler
    Show
    Living Horde
    You weave arcane magic through every jewel and coin of your cache, infusing it with a protective life of it's own.

    Level: 5+
    Category: Creation
    Time: 8 hours
    Duration: Permanent
    Component Cost: Varies
    Market Price: 1,000 GP
    Key Skill: Arcana

    You touch a gathered collection of treasure and transform it into a Coin Dragon. This horde must include at least one magic item and a large amount of coins, but may also include gems, jewelery, potions, residuum, and other valuables. The type of dragon depends on the size of the horde and magic items involved:
    +1 Coin Dragon: Requires a DC 20 Arcana check to create. The horde must include at least 1 +1 magical item and 5,000 coins (worth at least 360 GP). Any magical items are treated as if the coin dragon had absorbed them.
    +2 Coin Dragon: Requires a DC 24 Arcana check to create. The horde must include at least 1 +2 magical item and 25,000 coins (worth at least 1,800 GP). Any magical items are treated as if the coin dragon had absorbed them.
    +3 Coin Dragon: Requires a DC 28 Arcana check to create. The horde must include at least 1 +3 magical item and 75,000 coins (worth at least 9,000 GP). Any magical items are treated as if the coin dragon had absorbed them.
    +4 Coin Dragon: Requires a DC 32 Arcana check to create. The horde must include at least 1 +4 magical item and 125,000 coins (worth at least 45,000 GP). Any magical items are treated as if the coin dragon had absorbed them.
    +5 Coin Dragon: Requires a DC 36 Arcana check to create. The horde must include at least 1 +5 magical item and 625,000 coins (worth at least 225,000 GP). Any magical items are treated as if the coin dragon had absorbed them.
    +6 Coin Dragon: Requires a DC 40 Arcana check to create. The horde must include at least 1 +6 magical item and 3,125,000 coins (worth at least 1,125,000 GP). Any magical items are treated as if the coin dragon had absorbed them.

    The created creature is completely subservient to you (as if dominated, but it is not dazed), but will only defend the location it was created at, and will not attack anything unless that location has been invaded, or if something is actively trying to steal a part of it. It's chosen defending location can be changed with a 1 hour ritual (included with the Living Horde ritual).
    If it's creator dies the coin dragon becomes it's own entity.

    Thanks!

    Anyone else have anything? I figured it could be especially fun to mix and match now that Adventurer's Vault is out.

    Fun.

    One question, though: Are magic items gone when absorbed?
    Or are they retrievable after it dies?
    My homebrews:

    Oh, and I can make avatars on request. Just PM me. Please note, however that I am not especially experienced.

    The items are retrievable, as are all the coins and items used to create the coin dragon. The dragon is basically it's own treasure. I'll update that, nice catch.
