Breath Weapon (Su): A t'ien lung has one type of breath weapon, a cone of fire. Once a dragon breathes, it can't breathe again until 1d4 rounds later. A blast from a breath weapon always starts at the dragon's mouth and extends in a direction of the dragon's choice. If the breath weapon deals damage, creatures caught in the area can attempt Reflex saves to take half damage (8d10(22)). A juvenile lung dragon's breath weapon is a cone of 40 length.
Control Weather (Sp): Juvenile T'ien lungs can use this spell-like ability 8 times per day.
Fly (Su): Though wingless, t'ien lungs can fly magically due to a magic yellow pearl embedded in their brains. If removed from the dragon, this pearl loses its magic but is still worth 1,000 gp. The dragon can cease or resume flight as a free action.
Water Breathing (Ex): A t'ien lung can breathe water as easily as air.
Other Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day - pyrotechnics.
Immunities (Ex): All dragons are immune to sleep and paralysis effects.
Spell Resistance (Ex): As dragons age, they become more resistant to spells and spell-like abilities, as given in the variety descriptions.
Blindsight (Ex): A juvenile dragon can ascertain creatures by non-visual means (mostly hearing and scent, but also by noticing vibration and other environmental clues) with a range of 120 feet.
Keen Senses (Ex): A dragon sees four times as well a human in low-light conditions and twice as well in normal light. It also has darkvision with a range of 400 feet.
Detect Thoughts (Su): Lung dragons can use this ability as the spell of the same name, continuously, with a range equal to 20 feet.
Invisibility (Su): Lung dragons can become invisible or visible at will. As with the invisibility spell, making any attack causes the dragon to become visible.
Alternate Form (Su): Lung dragons can assume any humanoid form of Small to Large size as a standard action. This ability is similar to the polymorph self spell but allows only humanoid forms. When using this ability, dragons gain a +11 circumstance bonus on Disguise checks.
Plane Shift (Sp): All lung dragons can move between the Spirit World and the Material Plane as often as they desire. Shifting planes is a standard action.
Skills: Dragons purchase the following skills at 1 rank per Hit Die: Listen, Spot and Search. The remaining skill points are generally spent on Bluff, Concentration, Diplomacy, Escape Artist, and Knowledge(any) at a cost of 1 skill point per rank. Dragons cannot purchase skills that are exclusive to a class. Dragons that can cast spells have the Spellcraft skill for free at 1 rank per Hit Die, provided they have an Intelligence bonus of at least +1 (Intelligence score 12+).
This subtype usually is used for elementals and outsiders with a connection to the Elemental Plane Air. Air creatures always have fly speeds and usually have perfect maneuverability (see the section on Movement).
Spirit creatures include some fey and elementals (nature spirits), outsiders (celestial spirits), undead (ghosts and ancestors), and even dragons. Spirit creatures are nor necessarily incorporeal, despite their name - in the worlds of Oriental Adventures, some spirits are as much flesh and bone as humans are. The only game effect of the spirit type modifier is that spirit creatures are all affected by spells such as commune with greater spirit, invisibility to spirits, and protection from spirits.
