Blue dragons typically prefer deserts and arid lands; like others of their kind their lair is always some vast cave or underground cavern.

The attack of a blue dragon is a claw/claw/bite or USE of its breath weapon.
A blue dragon is capable of discharging a bolt of electricity (lightning) in a straight line 1/2" wide by 10" long.
This discharge is always of the stated proportion.

Speaking blue dragons which are able to use spells do so as follows:
For each stage of maturity from the 1st through 3rd they gain a 1st level spell.
From the 4th to the 6th stages they gain a second level.
At the 7th and 8th brackets they gain a 3rd level spell.
Thus, an ancient blue dragon would have 3 1st level, 3 2nd level, and 2 3rd level spells.
Determine all such spells randomly;
if the same spell is rolled twice the dragon is able to use the spell twice per day.
 

DLA: Although blue dragons live in caves, like
others of their kind, they prefer to dwell in
deserts and arid lands. They are large
dragons--over 42 feet long. They fight with
teeth and claws, but their most deadly attack
is their lightning breath. Blue dragons were
used to overcome fortified fortresses and towers
during the War of the Lance.

Blue dragons are more gregarious than
many of their cousins. They obey orders and
can act and fight together as a cohesive unit.
Thus they proved loyal allies of the Dragon
Highlords. They have their own language and
several others. Blue dragons are highly adept
spell casters.

Kiriara's blue dragon, Skie, was renowned
among his kind for his remarkable loyalty to
his rider.
