The relative vulnerability of dragons to certain builds. Yeah, in my home-game, I fixed that via templates etc., but the matter of fact remains that in mythic rules, this is further enhanced. Enter this pdf.   Beyond a number of suggested abilities from the Mythic Adventures base book to help design challenging draconic adversaries, we receive new abilities – a lot of […]
