Combat

Breath Weapon (Su): A shadow dragons breath weapon is a cone of billowing, smoky shadows with an energy drain effect. Creatures within the cone gain 5 negative levels: the saving throw to remove the negative level is 29. A successful Reflex save (DC 29) reduces the number of negative levels by half (round down).

Shadow Blend (Su): During any conditions other than full daylight, a shadow dragon can disappear into the shadows, giving it nine-tenths concealment. Artificial illumination, even a light or continual flame spell, does not negate this ability. A daylight spell, however, will.
