Serini's paranoia about the paladins is really starting to screw the team over.

Predictably so.

Don't you love/hate it when your opponents addressed their glaring weakness?

Then again, that's what sonic and force spells are for....

Considering how much Bloodfeast has to weigh (2 - 3 tonnes, he's definately upper end for a Allosaurus or the related species), I'm willing to bet the dragon gets pulled out of the air.
Not to mention all it's teeth are serrated. Meaning when Bloodfeast pull back with his bite, he's going to rip part of the dragon's throat out.

Oh, I hope

And it does answer the question on if a Dinosaur can overcome a Dragon's natural magic defense (or did they make it so you don't need +1-or-better-weapons to pierce dragon hide?)

Wouldn't really matter given how 3.5 DR works since under the circumstances he's probably critting or otherwise doing with damage to punch through it.

Fun fact. I haven't double checked this myself, but someone on another forum looked it up and according to the official 3rd edition stats while T-Rexs don't have a rake attack, Allosauruses like Bloodfeast do.

Also note that Bloodfeast isn't just any Allosaurus. He's a Blood Empire War Allosaurus. So he could easily be an advanced version or have some sort of War Mount template.

Also - a null magic field would also certainly interrupt those magical defenses, right? So.. Moot point?
A minute's thought suggests that the very idea of this is stupid. A more detailed examination raises the possibility that it might be an answer to the question "how could the Germans win the war after the US gets involved?" - Captain Seafort, in a thread proposing a 1942 'D-Day' in Quiberon Bay

No, I think it would just stop a weapon from bypassing DR/Magic

EDIT

Damage Reduction is not mentioned as being a supernatural or spell-like ability.

natural Damage reduction is not affected by anti-magic.

Never considered that BLoodfeast might have a template or too on him too boot.
Then again, the only 'breed for war' style template, Warbeast, from MM2 (3.X) isn't very impressive. Quite frankly, advancing them by HD is more effective.

Hopefully BLoodfest isn't a really a Battletitan (MM3, 3.5, and I think meant for Eberron) that just wasn't armored up yet. If he is, then that poor dragon is going to get it's ass completely kicked.

Would be pretty funny if the custom Blood Empire War Mount template gave fire resistance and a bunch of other anti-red dragon qualities to discourage the empress from snacking on them.

Once again, I adore how both artist and fans look for little facts like that, to allow Bloodfeast to rake the stomach like that. :-D

I'd not thought about War Mount, it's been so long since we'd seen him as anything but Tiny Lizard.
