- QL 1: Tree dragons become aggressive when you threaten their nest. They like shiny objects.
- QL 2: You can lure them with shiny items. They can use their fire breath five times per day.
- QL 3+: You can dodge their fire breath if you know how they set up their attacks.
*) Fire Breath: Tree dragons can use their fire breath five times per day. Flammable objects can be set ablaze by this attack, catching fire on a 1 on 1D6. Fire breath affects one target per use.
Movement Patterns: If you know the movement patterns of the tree dragon (Animal Lore check with QL 3), you get a bonus of 2 to dodge the tree dragon’s fire breath.
Shiny Objects: If heroes in a tree dragon’s line of sight are carrying shiny items openly, make a Willpower check for the dragon. If the check fails, the tree dragon tries to steal the item.
