Clockwork dragon

From PathfinderWiki
Clockwork dragon
A steam-powered clockwork dragon.

A clockwork dragon is a wonder of Azlanti magic and craftsmanship, originally designed to be used as a weapon against the true masters of that ancient empire: the alghollthus.1 They are some of the most complex clockwork devices known, and are usually equipped with breath weapons in mimicry of real dragons, such as fire, acid, flaming tar, rusting mist, or sleeping gas.2 Clockwork dragons are often able to partially rewind themselves through the use of their wings, and often have to be reinforced with adamantine if the goal of the creator is of any notable size.3

Clockwork dragons, like other clockworks, can be enhanced through steam-powered technology.4
