>You suddenly become a Gold Dragon.>We are talking a full grown Gold Dragon, so that might cause issues if you are indoors...>Wat do with your new found might?
>might cause issues if you are indoors>doesn't even know they have polymorph
>>70073275Doesn't mean you had time to change form.
>>70073232Well first off I change shape into the human I was before anybody sees me.Also, it kinda depends on what edition. From art alone I'm guessing 5E without the spellcaster alternate rule? Actually I'd change shape into an Archmage in that case. The benefits of being a ninth level caster outweigh being a dragon, for the moment.I guess I'd have to see if wizardry can be learned or taught in the way it can in D&D, cause I will gleefully sell that power.
>>70073341Isn't that the same illustration used in the 3.5 books?>>70073232Shapeshift to human and use my newfound abilities to start doing oddjobs to make enough money then fuck off to the woods of Canada and build myself a homestead.
>>70073232Do we get spellcasting or are we just a gold dragon? A lot rides on this answer, OP.
>>70073469You get the Dragon's magic, but have to learn to wield it on your own.
>>70073412>Isn't that the same illustration used in the 3.5 books?No.
>>70073628Then the answer is simple.Take a page from Shadowrun and use dragon magic and superhuman charisma to take over a big corporation and become super fuckin rich. Oh, and hire some gutter rats to do shady odd jobs.
Mourn the loss of my computer and, presumably, half the rest of my house.Then, presumably, try to hide before I'm captured by the military or something.
>>70073232What age category is "Full grown"
>>70074329Young Adult, about 100 years old.
>>70073232>polymorph back to a human>use magic to fix me house>probably fix the road and my truck while I'm at it>go to sleep and decide what else I want to do in the morning
>>70073232>Apartment is ruind. Fuck>Polymorph back into a human but a more idealized version of myself. It'll be different enough I can say I was passing by when some monster bust out of no where>Get with family and just plan my own death so I can get a new identity>Use my newfound dragon charisma, magic, and intelligence to accumulate wealth and start a non-profit organization>Praise Bahamut
>>70073232>PC is a crazed chemist who is trying to turn himself into a half dragonOk guys, which one of you swapped my red dragon extract with gold dragon?
>>70073232Polymorph back into a human, then use my superior powers of persuasion to take up permanent residence in a casino. Then use my future-vision and other Polymorphs to simply win casino games until I amass a fortune. Then I fly to New York and order 40,000 of these. Finally I start a cross platform Tabletop RPG and food channel/group advertising the real gimmick to play with a dragon. Again using my incredible intelligence, charisma, and future-vision to make the best alterations I can, as well as a side-project "Delicacies with Dreamgazer" using my breath to heat the pan for any searing.
Change back to human form, fuck my wife, raise half dragon babies
>>70073232Transform into a girl.
>>70073232I would post on /tg/. When I learn magic, I would try to help anon.
Start killing people.
>>70073232Shape change into human as fast as possible.Tell my wife.Go to a reasonably remote area to aquaint myself with my powers & body & train myself in their use.Destroy the wealthy elite in every governmentLive in peace
>>70075207You gonna redistribute that hoard? That is a lot of wealth not going to the people, comrade.
PURGE THE ELVES! DEUS VULT!
>>70075228Reinstitute a resources backed currency. That way the rich cannot write their own checks nor sit on their wealth without fear of reprisal.Just the death of the elite should balance out a decent percentage of the economy & with them gone no one is around to set the great thriving machine in motion without the public’s knowledge.I don’t want to be a tyrant, & I’m not looking to get myself (too) rich.
Try and find the anons from the last tread and work out a deal.
>>70075288You realize that you exposing yourself as a dragon and systematically murdering every rich and powerful person in the world and then mandating economic policies will create both a blowback of people mobilizing against you purely because an all powerful outsider has fucked every country up and a dragon cult that worships the ground you walk on? You would destroy the world.
>>70075406He is just an edgy young dragon, leave him alone.
>becoming anything less than the unaging and undying benevolent dictator of the world with your draconic superiorityThere really is no other way.
I'd spend about 100 years travelling the world and doing some good of my own. Destabilizing totalitarian governments, exposing and even flamboyantly destroying corruption, and reallocating those resources into a giant pile that I would roll around naked on, because I'm a fucking DRAGON.
>>70075491Such an amazing setting. I wish Kael would do more with it than just the occasional lore post.
>>70075288>Im not looking to make myself too rich>being a dragonChoose one
>>70075379Aboleths ain't SHIT compared to gold dragons.
>Insert Gold Dragon giving humans edgy /pol/ humor.
>>70075476>unagingDragons age in D&D. They have an upper lifespan of about 6000 years, but after 2000 years they start getting more and more detached and sleepy, spending long years and decades in solitude.Granted, that's still more than enough time to go full Leto II Atreides and create an eons-spanning empire that will survive past your death.There are mechanisms for a dragon to achieve immortality (dracolichdom and Dragon Ascendance, for example) but they probably aren't options for this scenario.
>>70075859If you could not tell by my pic I was referencing Fall from Heaven's dragons which are literal undying machines of war created by the gods.
>>70075891Right, but the scenario is a D&D gold dragon. I was clarifying.
>>70075905Let me fucking reference an insanely obscure fantasy setting that never gets talked about without sperging out, jesus.
>>70075743But Anon, Aboleths have a hereditary and innate connection to their entire species memories from the beginning of time. They have extreme psychic abilities and can chill in the ocean. It would be fucking cool to be an Aboleth is all I'm saying.
>>70075931You can make your references just fine, stop overreacting.
>>70075941Yeah but that thread said you didn't get any of that.
>>70073232>polymorph back into human shape but hopefully not as fat>continue living life as normalHonestly if I started making waves I'd probably just get nuked.Even if they tried normal war, 546 HP is nothing compared to a US military of 1.3 million soldiers with reflavored heavy crossbows.
>>70076045>polymorph back into human shape but hopefully not as fatYou could do that IRL if you put the fork down, fatty.
>>70075743The aboleth will outlive the dragon
>>70075991Well, then what's the point? What DO you get? I mean in this thread everyone is assuming you get all the magic powers of a golden dragon, so why not imply the same with Aboleths if we're trying to do a side by side here.
>>70076253Not if you become a Dragon Ascendant.Granted to do that you'll need to powerlevel like fuck and amass a hoard of gold then eat it. And then continue to powerlevel like fuck.
>>70076283The thread only assumed you didn't get the hereditary memories since you were the first. All the other psionic powers are baked in
>"Hey Dragon! Are you a fellow Anon? We should help each other out to prevent things going to shit!"
>>70073232Amass a hoard using my new dragon intelligence, magic, and general magnificence. Then buy enough shares in a company, perhaps BMW, to take it over. Then rule and diversify, with the corporation as my hoard.I'll probably have to make a few object lessons, but turning into my dragon form and eating somebody should do nicely.
>>70076327Don't have to eat them, just burn em.
>>70076292Yeah. a Dragon CAN become immortal, but I'm saying the aboleth comes with biological immortality baked in. Plus they can breed true on their own
>>70076327>BMW>gold>using your hoard to own a company>eating people who disagreeLofwyr, please stop posting. You're not fooling anybody.
>>70075406I’m not going to go around in broad daylight as a dragon. You m just going to systematically kill them all off, & use my dragon powers to get away with it & never have it get traced back to me
>>70073232Anyone who doesn't answer immediately fly around bellowing and firebreathing, at least for a few minutes, is full of shit.After that, it's a series of polymorphing and evading the men in black, who would probably love to dissect me.
>>70076432>>700764843/day you can turn into ANY humanoid or animal or medium or smaller size for as long as you want. Couple that with waterbreathing and you're damn near impossible to detect
>>70076295Oh, then that's a horse of a different color. yeah losing the memory is cool and all but hot damn would being an underwater psychic C'thuluSpawn would be pretty badass. we could psychically shitpost at eachother through the ocean, fuck with Oceanographers by making weird deep sea noises once every 50 years or so and make yourselves some neat slaves. I honestly think if I have to give up my humanity I would definitely prefer being Squidface.

>>70076432I think you'll be found out, especially considering such high profile actions you plan to commit. People are pretty good at figuring out weird shit, just look at the whole skinwalker ranch thing.
Ok how come other Anons got to be Elder Godfish or Fucking dragons but I am an eyeball. The Reality warping is pretty cool I guess but a bit unweildly...
>>70076655Skinwalker Ranch?Look, I’m a dragon, something that by the laws of our world should not exist. I also have magic, which no one in our world knows the rules of.All they are gonna know is that an invisible, undetectable “something” completely fucked every single motherfucker the governments of the world thought untouchable. I’m not a nation that can be nuked. I’m not a person they can track. The only time I would don my real face is after everyone is dead & I can assure you, only three people see me on a daily bases & they wouldn’t or couldn’t talk.This isn’t DeathNote where some autistic Asian kid traces a bunch of bullshit back to me. Even if I do somehow get caught, what are they going to do? There is no law covering dragon attacks. What court is going to support that? What narrative would they use that wouldn’t have at least a decent sized facet of the world’s population deciding not only was it okay to get rid of those tyrannical fucks but worshiping me as the closest thing modern man has to a god?
>>70077647Yes and billionaires like Robert Bigelow would definitely fund and head investigations into your exploits, not to fucking mention those loyal to the various different governments you've assassinated the heads and funding members of. I think you're the naive one here thinking you can just wantonly murder every single high profile person no matter what supernatural powers you have. Even real life supernaturals just kill cows and hikers. Doesn't stop people investigated that shit.

>>70077709Okay, but you don’t seem to understand that I’m not operating under any given rules that anyone is going to be able to predict. I’m not chupacabra. I’m a force of destruction that can shapeshift into any form I want, go invisible, teleport, & breathe water indefinitely at a minimum. I’m not even getting into the more niche abilities, like dreamtrance telepathically indoctrinating everyone I can reach with my Lair action powers.

>>70073232I break my chair
First thing i do is polymorph into a much cooler silver dragon, cause gold is tacky as fuck
Honestly? Probably not much? taking over the world via charisma? I'd be a horrible leader.I'll probably just repolymorph back to normal, exploit my new skills to recover the money to rebuild my house and keep living my normal life (and using the polymorph to get my hair done)I'm a man of few needs what can I say?
Didn't Dragon become a president of USA in Shadowrun?
>>70082376Dunkelzahn AKA Dunks, Big D, and President Dragon Dad
>>70073232I would settle a remote uninhabited island and start developing my magic skills. I would visit society in secret and start influencing it for the better. Oh, and make money in sports etc with my new-found immense physical abilities.
>>70073232That fucker who bullied me in high school is about to burn.To bad for my brother who probably died when the building exploded during my transformation.
>>70080420This is the only true answer for an anon who wants to be happy.
>>70073232Probably thrash around with 'what the fuck just happened', use a few abilities at random with no control, I imagine fly with little grace, in the end I try to polymorph back to (my) human and try to explain the damage and large beasty footprints.I probably later on that night start to give real consideration as to how and why this happened. Anyone else have this happen? What is the motive behind all of this.Spend the next few months trying to get used to my abilities and trying to figure out what is going on. Maybe locate a nice deep wilderness location that fits me and hang out there till I figure it out.
>>70073293So i'd fucking die.Is this the answer you were looking for?Did you need to make a thread on a Chinese basket-weaving forum to figure this out?What sort of discussion are you trying to get out of this?Before you answer, kindly consider this:Go fuck yourself
>>70083262Wow, you need to eat a gun.
>>70073232Go scare the shit out of David Icke.
>>70073232Well lets see, the first orders of business is:>Figure out the order of magnitude my magical powers are and if I can polymorph into a human form or not.>If I can polymorph, I make a show of power destroying some old place like my High School and then amass a cult following>I then demand tribute lest they wish to invoke my ire and claim a swath of land as mine>The strongest of the followers I make them my honor guard who protect me when in and out of human form>The rest become food, with a gaggle of concubines at the back to help with creating my half-dragon spawn>Rule as a benevolent but harsh king as I take what I want but give back to the people who follow me as a reward.>Examples are made out of everyone who has wronged me. They dont really need to be burned alive by fiery breath, they just need to be taught that they slighted me and slights are not tolerable>After 20-50 years when I get tired of ruling over people, I take my most loyal guards and go live in the mountains of Colorado while I enjoy a very early retirement from being the Dragon King.
>>70083262>So i'd fucking die.With that attitude you probably should.
>>70082161>Ditching the wise bearded look for some edgy mohawkOk, zoomer
>>70073232Probably fall through the floor first. Then bust out of the building second. Get shot by the neighbors third, don't die but have a weird time trying to get them to stop shooting at me. After having gotten them to realize it's me, lay low and dodge the cops, and the inevitable feds. Work with my friends and try to get me out of town and into the woods, have a bad time trying to hide, eventually get caught by FBI agents, go along with it and go find out what's actually in area 51. Start being subjected to different experiments, form relationships with white-coat lab tech researchers, and finally get a chance to just take a nap and sleep for a long time. Fuck, I don't even care if I become a dragon or not, I just want to fucking sleep.
Probably live the rest of my life as a normal human and when i'm old just disapear to travel the world, depending on the place become a dragon to fuck with NASA satelites.But the main objective would be to fuck and create half-breeds around the world to fuck with biologist. I want to live until humanity reaches space travel, then when they reach a new planet appear and comunicate as "the last of my kind" and see what they would do.
>>70083660After waking up, it's time to do some science.>let's test the magic capabilitiesShrinking myself down to a more manageable size first, and being able to revert back. This is partially so I can enjoy being able to wander around the building on occasion, but also so I can be large enough to cuddle a qt researcher girl.>simple magic manipulationMore for fun stuff like lighting cigars, cooking food, making little glowey lights, levitating objects to help put picture frames up or help maintenance staff replace fluorescent lights and whatnot. >advanced magichow to predict what card's on the top of the deck? what a die will roll? stuff like that. Foresight in a local place, then eventually extending it further to see weather events, crimes, etc. This is a very useful skill>healing and restoration magic traininglearn to treat papercuts and common colds, eventually actual injuries and with enough practice and skill be able to assist in the medical wing. Magic probably can't replace everything medicine can do and healing magic sounds like it'd be quite taxing, but being able to reduce suffering and aid in the quality of healing sounds like a wonderful thing

>>70073232Oh huh. Thats neat. Polymorph back into myself, blame destruction on gas explosion.Use magical abilities for self benefit, get high paying job, enjoy life of comfort.Cant really use my dragon form without getting detected, unfortunately, so Im keeping it under wraps.Would be nice to whip out on a honeymoon, though.
1.Change back into myself.2. Use magic to get money and live a modest life despite being rich.3. Go look for a wife and start a family4.

Maybe go on the news as the man who turned into a dragon and set up a dating profile as a dragon looking for a loving owner.I don't think I'd be able to do my job well as a dragon, so I'd probably try and find another way to make money, again, so that I'm not a burden. Probably put on some kind of show where I breathe fire at bales of hay and give people rides on my back. A lot of peoples lives would be just a little bit happier with the memory of visiting me, a real life dragon, and paying a couple bucks for a short ride, and if, as a dragon, I made someone's life other than my own just a little better, I can know I was a good dragon, overall. Which is what I want to be, good.

I'm curious to see how the word would react to half dragons and magicWith that in mind, I use my powers to impregnate a lot of women from around the world Sorcerers are descended from dragons so with enough children we should be able to spread the magic gene wide enough that real life magic becomes decently common
>>70075288>>70075207Prime example of nobody thinks they’re a villain
>>70073232Re-establish the empire. Sire an elite class of half-dragon children to be advisers and lawkeepers.
>>70076045>Even if they tried normal war, 546 HP is nothing compared to a US military of 1.3 million soldiers with reflavored heavy crossbows.Change Shape into a Werebear, making you immune to non-silver weapons. Nobody will ever guess you have a weakness to silver, so you're basically invincible.(Okay, well, you can still take fire, cold, electric, and sonic damage, but once you prove immune to bullets and bombs, most people aren't gonna think about dumping liquid nitrogen on you.)
>>70093960I'm pretty sure that a lot of rockets are incendiary. Don't some anti-tank warheads basically jet a bunch of molten copper inside of whatever they hit?
>>70093960You underestimate the diversity and ingenuity ingenuity of humanity's weaponsFor one thing, incendiaries are probably like, 3rd or 4th in the "what will kill this thing?" checklist, and I'm pretty sure sufficiently powerful explosions would count as sonic damage anyway, since they're physically the same thing.
>>70094006>>70094033Thankfully, your true form (Gold Dragon) is immune to fire anyway, but moreover, taking some slight fire damage is not gonna matter nearly as much as shrugging off every bullet with ease.
>>70091607It's also symptomatic of 5e's retarded game design where ALL npcs, even humanoids, are designed like monsters
>>70094227Also the bizarre move where since NPCs don't extra attack, they use their whole action to multiattack, they technically can't do unique things like shove+attack unless it's explicitly specified in their stat block.

>>70073232Fly, as far as I can and never return.
>>70073232Dear HumanityYou are fucked. Sideways.
>>70094063Anti-tank shells wouldnt exactly be slight fire damageRegardless dont dragon have like DR 10-20-30 / magic Bullets wont do much anyways in dragon form, it mostly is any sort of anti-tank weaponry that would have any effect because a shell to the chest will fuck you up regardless
>>70075476A dragon would still die to a tank shell to the chest. Better to be more sneaky and less overt.
>>70075786something something DESPITE
>>70073232I'm not Lawful Good IRL, would my alignment suddenly forcibly shift to such?
>>70095372Nah, a dragon would totally survive a tank shot or two. Not fifty, but definitely two. They've got a shitton of HP, and it's laughable to think a tank can do more than 100 damage.Really, a tank shot is probably about 10d10+20 damage at most.As a comparison, a cannonball at point blank to the face does 8d10 damage. But you might scream, "a tank shell does so much more damage than a cannonball!", but.. it doesn't. It really doesn't. It has significantly better penetration, but that's an AC or hardness modifier. Defense is really weird in D&D, considering that a cat can slash through solid plate armor with good enough rolls. Stopping attacks works completely different in the real world, which is the only reason cannons had to be upgraded to artillery.Also, it's really hard to hit something that can fly really fast with a tank shot. I, myself, would say tanks require an Aim action to even be allowed to fire at a target, at which point the dragon will move and void the shot. They can see you lining up that turret.
>>70095511What if the tank is hidden under brush and canopy, and camouflaged, and is in an ideal position to take a crack at the dragon from a distance? What about surface to air missiles?
>>70095555What if the dragon is invisible and teleports to your location, attacks, and teleports away? Giving random benefits isn't very fair.
>>70095511Plastic explosives in d20 Modern deal 2d6 damage per pound, which adds up very quickly when you have air to air missiles with 50lb warheads and surface to air missiles with 200lb warheads. There's a lot the dragon can do to avoid taking the hit but overconfidence could kill him very quickly.
>>70095511Tanks not being able to shoot down flying targets is a meme. Abrams can shoot down planes with their main gun just fine.
>>70095695What kind of damage would explosives do? Fire is really easy to resist and bludgeoning too if it doesn't count as magical. I'm not sure if force damage applies because it's supposed to represent raw magic energy and real-world explosives are mundane.
>>70095765Planes fly on predictable trajectories. Try shooting down a drone.
>>70073232Go somewhere remote, train and master my powers. Then I track down Jeffrey Epstein's remains and cast speak with dead to make him talk. It's pedo-hunting time.
>>70095767I think explosives in d20 modern were just typed as being "explosive " damage(Been quite a while since I even looked at d20 modern so I might be wrong)If you want to give it dnd types thoughA mix between fire, sonic, bludgeoning and piercing/slashing would represent most explosives
>>70084260Anon where the fuck do you live that the house won't break before you do
>>70073232the good news is I will live pretty much forever>>70073275In all likelihood the dragon's flesh will be way more sturdy than your home/office, so it'll probably more or less be an explosion of insulation/drywall or euro brick and mortar.>>70073713This. And eat anyone who attacks you.>>70074272If you can polymorph back to human you may be able to get an insurance settlement. They'll probably assume it was a gas leak explosion somehow.>>70075288Governments will likely return to fiat currency simply because it lets them generate more currency than they physically make, thus ensuring they can take on loans as needed and give loans as needed. For a government fiat currency has a lot of pros to it as opposed to gold or silver, cuz it means you effectively never can run out of it.
>>70096915Oh shit good idea. After the 1% purge I’ll start this too
>>70096915Speak with Dead is a cleric spell, sadly.If you powerlevel you can cast it with Wish though.
>>70097386After the 1% purge you'd have almost finished.
>>70098318True but you can never be too careful
>>70073232Polymorph to any other less awful subtype.
>>70073232I drop out of school and work and live at home in a low maintenance form (probably a small monkey) for a few years, reading all there is to know about power, politics, and strategy while learning relevant languages such as Mandarin, Russian, etc. Then I'll join the military using my knowledge, charisma, and polymorphed Chad form to rise through the ranks, slowly aging but never declining in strength, mental lucidity, or ambition. When it is most opportune, I'll become an American Caesar and use my connections and secret dragon powers to take over the government and wipe out the corruption. Then I'll fake my death and watch from the shadows, either repeating the process in other nations or biding my time until the process needs repeating.
>>70100124You know seeing so many people wanting to perform political uprisings and shit, I wonder if Im boring or just tired since all I want is to be comfortable and left the fuck alone.
>>70100388Same. I just want a quiet life, don't care if as a gold dragon, an aboleth or a human. Leave me out of this world conquer and politics bullshit.You are not boring. You are just normal.
>>70100613Same, I just want the comfy pile of gold. I used to care about world domination or whatever when I was in middle school and a fucking chuuni, but now I just want to be rich and live the neet life.
>>70073232Report to the govenment and serve my country in any way I can of course. God Save the Queen.
>>70073232Hrm... realistically, not sure? I guess the first priority would be me verifying I'm not hallucinating. Next, make sure no one nearby got hurt in the process of me changing.Next, I guess try to understand what's going on, try to learn what I can do, if I noticed I could do magic, try to learn and experiment with that. Try to find trustworthy lab to worth with to study, well, me and what this was all about, now that a whole unexpected aspect of the "secrets of the universe" just opened up. Ultimately, try to push the studying toward figuring out a way to boost everyone else's lifespan as well.A lot of what I'd do though would also depend on what I discovered about what I _could_ do. There's a bunch of exploration to be done, and would look like I found effectively a whole new point of leverage that had no idea could exist.
>>70075859If withing 2000 years you're Earth's benevolent leader, wouldn't you just wait for humans to mine some gold asteroid, eat a big chunk of it and then become a god?
>>70106603'cause that requires us to be playing by 3.5 rules.
>>70073275I came to this thread to tell Op is a retard for this exact reason.
>>70106603iirc the godhood thing requires you to eat your entire hoard, not just a sufficient value of materials, which if you're actually emperorking of the world would count as the whole planet. And assuming the real world goes by RAI you can't just declare "I only own this much" and eat that.
>>70073628>>70073713Just go privateering on behalf of a nation, get "free" ships, and then turn around make them actually ferry cargo around the world. Open a bank with the latest in Dwarven bank security measures and your dragon hoard is more protected than your average actual dragon hoard. Then run for mayor.
>>70075207>Destroy the wealthy elite in every government>Live in peace
>>70095511>a tank shot is probably about 10d10+20 damage at most.Try at bare minimum 20d10+50. These things put massive holes in fortified buildings in a single shot.
>>70077576>>70077713Fuck that, he should go to Japan. For reasons.
>>7010690310d10+20, but the tank has Siege Monster. This does have the problem of high-level PCs being able to tank 120mm HEAT shells but since hit points aren't just meat points this isn't actually too bad.
>>70106946That's a lot of miraculous "near misses" when the Tank's attack roll hits their AC.
>>70106946Hit points are meat points though
>>70097412Gold Dragons can, historically, use Cleric Spells as Arcane Spells."*Can also cast cleric spells and those from the Law, Luck, and Good domains as arcane spells."3.5 Monster manual content, not sure if this transferred forward or not. Still needs 9th level spell slots mind you, so you're not wrong on the power-leveling for those Level-Adjusted sorcerer levels to stack on your natural casting.
I collapse the floor of my second floor bedroom, and crush the christmas tree and presents which are more or less directly below me, on my way down into the basement. Hopefully my new magical powers were able to include some manner of resurrection magic, because I'm probably killing my sister and parents as well.

Draconic Arrogance in Gold Dragons is in believing that their way is the Right one. I don't think I will be able to avoid it forever, but my wealth will be in the good will I have shared.

Possible to make use of some New Age stuff and maybe Wish/Miracle it into functionalityYou do it the old fashioned way of how wizards sought after arcane knowledge.Summon some fucking demons in a circle of protection and order them to divulge the secrets of magic. Then sacrifice a Japanese schoolgirl to it.

>>70075288There's a reason we have fiat currency, you economically illiterate commie retard.
>>70095511IIRC, a standard rocket-propelled grenade in D20 Modern deals 10d6 mixed fire and slashing damage. That's a decent fireball marker.10d10+20 averages at 75 damage on a hit, but also doesn't take into account increased weapon developments in the 17 years or so since D20 Modern came out.Getting hit with a Tank round meant for Fortified targets and other tanks? >>70106903This Anon's right, it'd Hurt, but with Hit Points 256 (19d12+133)5e's average that can be handled.On the other hand....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUFfqAtDb5UMissiles aren't just going to be shot one at a time vs a target and they're not going to be coming from a single attack/source, so you're looking at taking multiple layered attacks/blasts of which would be either targeting Touch AC (in older versions, ignoring Armor or Natural Armor bonuses) or At Advantage with a high accuracy rating, easily +10 to +20 in 5e terms.That then leads to "Well, what else can a Dragon do about this?"Part of this depends on an old argument's conclusion that is pretty much up to DM choice; Does Invisibility count as All Forms Of Detection or Just Eyeballs?For my money, you need Superior Invisibility (the 9th level spell that Explicitly hides all signs of the subject, including from things like Blindsight and Tremorsense that are more analogous to Radar and Ladar perceptions) but some DMs may run Radio and Laser detection as still technically "light-based" and so the 2nd level Invisibility or Greater Invisibility at 4th might cut it. If you take my perspective on it though, Darkstalker's 3rd edition feat can also avoid blindsense and the like.On the other hand, here the Stage Magician approach to stealth works better than the Magic-User version; polymorph into a bird and most RADAR/LADAR detection will recognize you as a bird and ignore you. Smaller animals and bugs also work.
