While most adventurers dream of engaging in thrilling battle with dragons, the many reptiles and amphibians of the Dungeon are still fierce foes for the aspiring hero. While they don't have any breath weapons, their bites are usually dangerous, and many of them are comfortable swimming through water. Fortunately, they are all cold-blooded, making cold damage particularly useful for fighting them.
