Chymon's Improved Sunder?
I've started a thread on the Rules forum discussing monster's inability to sunder magic weapons when using natural weapons.

The monster I had in mind in that thread was Chymon, who has the Improved Sunder feat. There's a chance my party will be eaten^Wintroduced to her next game. The party has a weapon which can do a lot of damage to her -- Fragarach (which is just an expensive magic weapon, not an artifact, in my game). If they attack her with it, I'd like her to sunder it; but can she?

If not, should we maybe change that feat to something usable in the 3.5 conversion?

In 3.0, I've counted creatures' DR rating as their ability to sunder...something with a DR x/+2 could sunder up to +2 weapons.

In 3.5, I don't know for sure...by the rules, it would be a no-go. Perhaps Improved Bull Rush might be a good alternate choice (send 'em swimming in the Stalagos).

Alternative feats
I got a look at the Draconomicon, WotC's new dragon book recently. There are some interesting feats in it...Improved Snatch comes to mind. They also have some metamagic-type feats for dragons to use on their breath weapons...enhancing the weapon in some way at the cost of a slower recharge time. Could be fun.

Man, I want some of what you're smoking. 10d10 DC26 does not need any more enhancing!

Well, I don't know what's in the Draconomicon yet, but a while back...before Dragon 300 by a bit...they had a dragon-focused issue which included in it a prestige class for Dragons, the Dragon Mystic. 5-level, full sorceror-spellcaster progression, various benefits. One of the most notable is the ability to use one of a select list of Metamagic feats they might posess (yes, Empower, Maximize and Quicken were on that list) to empower their breath weapon just as it would a spell, at the cost of adding the "level cost" of the feat to the recharge time of their breath weapon. Thus, a Dragon Mystic could do a Maximized metabreath every d4+3 rounds instead of a regular breath every d4 rounds.
