Breath Weapon (Su): A chromium dragon has two types of breath weapon, a line of solid ice (cold) and a cone of freezing crystals. Creatures within a cone of freezing crystals take 1 point of Dexterity damage per age category of the dragon (Fortitude half).

Flesh to Crystal (Sp): A great wyrm chromium dragon can use this ability once per day. It is similar to a flesh to stone spell, except that the victim is turned into a crystalline statue rather than stone (DC 17 + the dragon's Cha modifier). As a crystalline object, it is especially vulnerable to effects that damage crystal, such as a shatter spell. This is the equivalent of a 7th-level spell.

Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day - pass without trace (ice and snow only); 2/day - ice shape (as stone shape, but applies to ice instead of stone), wall of ice; 1/day - gelid blood*. (*If you are not using Frostburn in your campaign, replace this spell with eyebite.)

Skills: Appraise, Bluff, and Jump are considered class skills for chromium dragons.

Cold Subtype

A creature with the cold subtype has immunity to cold. It has vulnerability to fire, which means it takes half again as much (+50%) damage as normal from fire, regardless of whether a saving throw is allowed, or if the save is a success or failure.
