Dranoxeris The Black

This dragon doesn't follow all of the dragon's normal rules, with increased size and hit points as well as non-standard attacks to make it more dramatic.

This serpentine dragon has skin the color of deep volcanic rock, enormous claws, and jagged, stonelike horns and scales.

Permanent Draconic Growth Spell cast on him - Greatly increased size, only minor bonus to damage, not as accurate with melee attacks due to it not being his typical form.

Lava Eruption (Su) As a full-round action, a great wyrm underworld dragon can burrow through the ground up to twice its burrow speed. At the end of that movement, if the underworld dragon has use of its breath weapon, it can emerge from the ground spouting lava in a 30-foot-radius burst, dealing damage as the breath weapon.
