Black Dragon

Black dragons are sometimes known as skull dragons because of their skeletal
faces. Adding to the skeletal impression is the gradual deterioration of
the hide around the base of the horn and the cheekbones. This deterioration
increases with age and does not harm the dragon. On hatching, a black
dragon's scales are thin, small, and glossy. As the black dragon ages, they
become larger, thicker, and duller, helping it camouflage itself in swamps
and marshes. Black dragons are especially fond of coins. Older dragons
sometimes capture and question humanoids about stockpiles of gold, silver,
and platinum coins before killing them. Black dragons prefer to ambush
their targets, using their surroundings as cover. When fighting in heavily
forested swamps and marshes, they try to stay in the water or on the ground;
trees and leafy canopies limit their aerial maneuverability. When
outmatched, a black dragon attempts to fly out of sight, so as not to leave
tracks, and hide in a deep pond or bog.

~ Black Dragon's chain of evolution ~
Hatchling -> Black Dragon -> Chromatic Wyrm -> Prismatic Wyrm

To evolve into a Chromatic Wyrm, a Black Dragon must fulfill these requirements:
[ ] Must be leveling between level 200 and 275.
[ ] Must have no evil-alignment kills.
[ ] Must have 10,000 good-alignment kills.
[ ] Must have no neutral-alignment kills.
There is a 1% chance of an evolution occuring when these requirements are met.
