A Skeletal Dragon is an undead being, TURNED as would be a Lich. Just as any undead, they live either partially or fully on the Negative Material Plane, with their corporeal manifestation being a mere shadow of their form. Their touch has twice the Paralyzing power of Ghouls.

The joints of these beasts are somewhat weak and susceptable to shattering. Any well-placed blunt hit (with a natural 17 or above rolled) has a 20% chance of spitting a random joint asunder (knee, shoulder, ankle, etc. but never neck).

For more relevant information about dragons make sure my little pages here aren't your only source! Subduing dragons, hit points per die related to size, and other special abilities of drakes are all outlined in detail in the good old MM1 and MM2.
