Sandy desert regions are the typical habitat of brass dragons, whose cavernous lairs are often found therein.
Brass dragons are quite forward and officious, and they love to converse.
They are rather selfish and tend towards neutrality because of this.

The brass dragon attacks with a claw/claw/bite routine or by breathing either of 2wo weapons --

Breath Weapon: a cone of sleep gas which extends 7" from the creature's mouth to a terminating diameter of 2",
or a billowing cloud of fear gas 4" wide by 5" across by 2" deep (ground upwards).
Creatures in these gaseous clouds must save versus dragon breath regardless of their level or fall asleep/flee in fear.
If the dragon is small sized, saves are at +2, and if the dragon is of huge size saving throws are at -2, from the number rolled.

Possible Magic Use: If a brass dragon can speak and employ spells,
it will gain a first level spell at each odd numbered stage of maturity it attains,
and a second level spell at each even numbered age.
As is usual with dragons, determine spells known by random selection.
 

DLA: Brass dragons inhabit arid, sandy regions.
Only about 30' long, brass dragons are
boisterous and loud, w/ a tendency to selfishness.
Brass dragons' one great wealkness is
their fondness for small TALK. They will converse
about nothing for hours on end and will
trail after parties of adventurers just for
the pleasure of hearing themselves TALK.

    Brass dragons prefer to attack with claws
and teeth, but they have 2wo formidable
breath weapons they can USE if the need arises.
Their sleep gas cuases victims to slumber
peacefully during the wildest battle; their fear
gas sends enemies fleeing into panic. Brass
dragons speak a wide variety of languages
(mainly so they'll have someone to TALK to).
