Combat

Breath Weapon (Su): The brown dragon's breath weapon is a line of acid. It does not use this attack against mounted foes, since it knows that horses are good eating. Using a breath weapon is a standard action. Once a dragon breathes, it can't breathe again until 1d4 rounds later. A blast from a breath weapon always starts at the dragon's mouth and extends in a direction of the dragon's choice.

Tremorsense (Ex): Brown dragons can automatically sense the location of anything within 500 feet that is in contact with the ground.

Create Water (Sp): The dragon can use this spell-like ability once per day.

Other Spell-Like Abilities: 1/day - create water.
