The terrible Dragon Toad is a sturdy beast with a highly tuned intellect as well. It's a warted, hulking brute with tremendous, silken wings which never reveals its magical nature unless it's obvious that its opposers already have knowledge thereto. It will then communicate in any humanoid language and use spells as a 12th-level Druid.

The Dragon Toad is not quite classifiable as a classic dragon-type of creature, since its offspring grow so quickly to adult size (within their first year), and doesn't gain strength and size over time, but remains constant over its 300 year lifespan. It gains knowledge by means of its seemingly magical awareness of the world it lives in.

Their intelligence nevertheless belies a typical lust for gold artifacts, coins, and treasure otherwise, attacking anyone near its hoard in a rage, adding +4 to its "to hit" rolls and doubling all damage.

The Dragon Toad's breath weapon is a 30-foot, 60-degree cone of fire. Otherwise it uses a traditional claw/claw-bite routine, severing limbs or heads with natural rolls of 20 "to hit."
