  • Resistance: Fire
  • Breath Weapon: 5 by 30ft.Line( fire damage
  • DC=8+CON MOD+pro
  • 1st level:2d6, 6th level:3d6, 11th level:4d6, 16th level: 5d6.

So the brass dragon gets resistance to fire which is by far the most helpful resiatnce. As a breath weapon it’s a 5 by 30ft line. The creatures targeted by must make a dex save. On a failed save they take fire damage the DC is found by 8 + your constitution modifier plus your proficiency bonus.

In terms of damage at first level its two die six, at sixth level 3 die six, at eleventh level 4 die six and at sixteenth level five die six which is quite good. With their mechanics addressed let’s take a look at their actual features.


So they have no horns or the whiskers. They do however have a boney plate on their forehead. Looks pretty cool.


In terms of personalities they love to socialize. Their favorite treasure is conversation pieces. They’re egomanics they don’t get along with other brass and they dislikes metal. Which is pretty cool.


In terms of other facts they typically reside in deserts hate the blue dragons and they can burrow as well. Not mechanically granted but it is something that you might like to incorporate into their civilization. That being said, let’s take a look at my personal thoughts on them.


I think they would make great barbarians or even great monks the fact that they dislike metal kind of opens up a lot of avenues for them to be unarmed combatants. They could also make really good druids along that same vein of thought.

Maybe even clerics you know like why not. I think there’s a lot of good role play opportunity for him i really do and bards man they would make fantastic bards.


That being said guys! thank you so much for checking out this article and i really do appreciate it. I hope you all have a wonderful day and as always happy adventuring.
