You have journeyed to the Withered Heath in search of a giant Dragon. There you discover tracks that lead you to the cold heights of the Grey Mountains.

Ignore the Deep keyword.

Cold-Drake cannot leave the staging area (even if it has damage equal to its hit points), but it is considered to be engaged with each player.

No more than 6 damage can be placed on Cold-Drake each round and it cannot have more than 18 damage.

This stage cannot be defeated while Cold-Drake has any hit points remaining.
