A dragon is a reptile-like creature, usually winged, with magical or unusual abilities.

Dragons are depicted as any of various species of large, intelligent, magical, reptilian beasts, each typically defined by a combination of their demeanor and either the color of their scales or their elemental affinity. True dragons are divided into two broad categories: chromatic and metallic. Chromatic dragons are almost universally evil, seeking only to sate their endless lust for food, treasure, and bloodshed. Metallic dragons are generally good and often protect the lands under their care.

Different Dragons Edit

As you can probably tell, the true dragon racial class is very different from the other racial classes in this book. This is because dragons, like many monsters, prove to be fairly problematic when stacked up next to PCs with a similar amount of hit dice. True dragons have always been incredibly dangerous monsters in campaigns, and their base statistics and ability scores are incredible, and much higher than we at Dreamscarred Press were comfortable rolling into a racial class. In addition, while their ability scores and combat abilities are significant, some things about true dragons (namely, their breath weapons) are actually underpowered, compared to what an even-leveled PC could do. Because breath weapons scale by age category, they’re fairly small and weak compared to what they probably should be at early and middle levels, and then the progression speeds up significantly once the hit die gap between age categories shrinks. In addition, some dragons get abilities at higher levels that really ought to have shown up much sooner.

By reducing the ability scores of the true dragons, standardizing the breath weapon’s progression, and scattering abilities across the class in places where they’re more balanced, we hope to have created a much more fun play experience for players and GMs wanting to include dragons in their campaigns.

Age Categories Edit

This racial class dispenses of traditional dragon aging to allow players to gain power as they level up. After all, many campaigns don’t take place over periods of time long enough for dragons to fully gain their power. There are several possible approaches to dragon age categories we recommend:

• Dragon PCs can gain power through experience, rather than (or in addition to) age. One possible fluff explanation for this is that most dragons spend their time hiding in lairs or building hoards, rather than adventuring, and that any dragon experiencing sufficient life-or-death situations might grow into a more powerful dragon sooner as well.

  • Dragon PCs cannot gain levels past their age category until reaching that age. A dragon can freely multiclass out of its racial class, so the dragon should simply take levels in other classes rather than its racial class until it reaches the appropriate age.
  • This dragon PC in particular is unique, and gaining power significantly faster than it should. This option introduces possible plot hooks if other dragons are involved, and allows for the player of the dragon to gain his full dragon abilities without drastically changing the campaign world.

True Dragon Racial Traits Edit

In addition to the racial traits gained by specific varieties of dragons, all true dragons have the following traits:

  • Darkvision (Ex): True dragons can see perfectly in the dark up to 60 feet.
  • Low-Light Vision (Ex): True dragons can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
  • Dragon Variety: All true dragons must choose a single type of true dragon to be, gaining additional racial traits and class features based on the type chosen. See the specific dragons’ entries below for the exact abilities each type of true dragon gains.
  • Languages: True dragons begin play speaking Common and Draconic. True dragons with high Intelligence scores can choose any languages they want (except secret languages, such as Druidic).

Hit Die: d12. Starting Wealth: 5d6 × 10 gp (average 175 gp.)

TrueDragon

CLASS FEATURES Edit

All the following are class features of the true dragon class.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A true dragon is proficient with all simple weapons, but not with any type of armor or shield.

Ability Score Increases: As a true dragon gains levels, its ability scores increase as noted on Table: True Dragon. These increases stack and are gained as if through level advancement.

Age Categories: At 3rd level, and every three levels thereafter, a true dragon advances an age category as noted on Table 1-1: True Dragon. For effects based on age category, the Hatchling age category is treated as 0.

Natural Armor (Ex): At 1st level, a true dragon gains a +1 natural armor bonus to its AC. This bonus increases by +1 at 2nd level and every level thereafter (to a maximum of +20 at 20th level). 

NaturalWeapons

Natural Weapons (Ex): A true dragon gains natural attacks as it grows in size. At 1st level, a true dragon has gains a bite attack and 2 claw attacks. Which natural attacks a true dragon gains, and the damage of these natural attacks, as shown on the following table: 

Bite: This is a primary attack that deals the indicated damage plus 1-1/2 times the true dragon’s Strength modifier (even though it has more than one attack). A true dragon’s bite attack has reach as if the creature were one size category larger (already included in the size increases below).

  • Claws: These are primary attacks that deal the indicated damage plus the true dragon’s strength modifier.
  • Wings: A Medium or larger dragon can slam its enemies with its wings. These are secondary attacks that deal the indicated damage plus 1/2 the true dragon’s strength modifier.
  • Tail Slap: A Large or larger dragon can use its tail to bludgeon enemies. This is a secondary attack that deals the indicated damage plus 1/2 the true dragon’s strength modifier.
  • Crush: A flying or jumping Huge or larger true dragon can land on foes as a standard action, using its whole body to crush them. Crush attacks are effective only against opponents three or more size categories smaller than the true dragon. A crush attack affects as many creatures as fit in the true dragon’s space. Creatures in the affected area must succeed on a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 the true dragon’s Hit Dice + the true dragon’s

Constitution modifier) or be pinned, automatically taking bludgeoning damage during the next round unless the dragon moves off them. If the dragon chooses to maintain the pin, it must succeed at a combat maneuver check as normal. Pinned foes take damage from the crush each round if they don’t escape. A crush attack deals the indicated damage plus 1-1/2 times the dragon’s Strength modifier.

Wings (Ex): At 1st level, a true dragon can use its wings to glide, negating damage from any fall and allowing 20 feet of forward movement for every 5 feet of descent. It glides at a speed of 30 feet with average maneuverability. It cannot use its wings to actually gain altitude; it merely coasts in other directions as it falls.

At 5th level, its wings grow stronger, and it gains the ability to fly at a speed of 50 feet. At 8th level, and every 3 levels thereafter, the true dragon’s fly speed increases by 50 feet. Its maneuverability depends on its size; Medium or smaller true dragons fly with average maneuverability, Large or Huge true dragons fly with poor maneuverability, and Gargantuan or larger dragons fly with clumsy maneuverability.

While a true dragon is encumbered or wearing medium or heavy armor, its fly speed is reduced by 10 feet.

Agile Runner (Ex): At 2nd level and again at 6th level and 10th level, a true dragon’s base land speed increases by +10 feet. Apply this bonus before modifying the true dragon’s speed because of any load carried or armor worn. This bonus stacks with any other bonuses to the true dragon’s land speed.

Breath Weapon (Su): At 2nd level, a true dragon gains the ability to exhale a cone of energy once every 1d4 rounds as a breath weapon. A true dragon’s breath weapon deals 1d8 points of damage per two class levels, and a successful Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 the true dragon’s Hit Dice + the true dragon’s Constitution modifier) halves the damage.

SizeTable

The exact breath weapon depends on the type of true dragon (see the specific dragons’ entries below), and the size the breath weapon is determined by the size of the true dragon, as shown on the following table:  

At 7th level, a true dragon gains the ability to use a secondary breath weapon (described in the specific dragons’ entries below). Most secondary breath weapons do not deal damage, and instead have inflict a condition or have a special effect. If the secondary breath weapon calls for a different save than the primary breath weapon, the DC is the same. A true dragon can still only breath once every 1d4 rounds, regardless of which breath weapon it used. 

Damage Reduction (Ex): Starting at 3rd level, a true dragon becomes more resistant to damage. It gains damage reduction 3/magic. At 7th level, this damage reduction increases to 5/magic, and at 13th level, it increases to 10/magic. 

In addition, the true dragon’s natural weapons are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. 

Sorcery: At 4th level, a true dragon gains the ability to cast spells as a 1st-level sorcerer. The true dragon also gains the cantrips ability of the sorcerer class, although it does not gain other sorcerer class features, such as bloodline powers or bloodline spells. At 8th level, and every 4 levels thereafter, the true dragon’s effective sorcerer level increases by one, granting him new spells per day and spells known as if he was a sorcerer of his effective sorcerer level. If the true dragon later takes levels in the sorcerer class, its sorcery ability and sorcerer levels stack for determining its spellcasting abilities. 

Dragon Senses (Ex): At 5th level, a true dragon’s visual acuity improves. The range of its darkvision increases to 120 feet, and it can now see four times as far as humans in conditions of dim light. 

At 11th level, a true dragon’s senses further improve. It gains blindsense with a range of 60 feet. If the true dragon has a burrow speed, it also gains tremorsense with a range of 60 feet. 

Size Increases: At 6th level and again at 10th level and 16th level, a true dragon increases in size by one size category. Its ability scores do not change, and it gains the benefits and drawbacks appropriate to its new size. 

Small: The true dragon’s space and reach increase to 5 feet, and it gains a +1 size bonus to their AC, a +1 size bonus on attack rolls, a –1 penalty to its Combat Maneuver Bonus and Combat Maneuver Defense, and a +4 size bonus on Stealth checks. 

Medium: The true dragon loses the bonuses and penalties it had for being Small size. Its space and reach do not change, although the reach of its bite increases to 10 feet. 

Large: The true dragon’s space increases to 10 feet, and it gains a –1 size modifier to attacks and armor class, a +1 special size modifier to its Combat Maneuver Bonus and Combat Maneuver Defense, a 

–2 penalty to Fly checks, and a –4 penalty to Stealth checks, as normal. Its reach does not change. 

Huge: The true dragon’s space increases to 15 feet, and it gains a –2 size modifier to attacks and armor class, a +2 special size modifier to its Combat Maneuver Bonus and Combat Maneuver Defense, a 

–4 penalty to Fly checks, and a –8 penalty to Stealth checks, as normal. Its reach increases to 10 feet (15 feet with bite). 

Spell Resistance (Ex): At 9th level, a true dragon becomes resistant to magic, gaining spell resistance equal to 11 + its Hit Dice. 

Frightful Presence (Ex): At 17th level, a true dragon gains the ability to strike terror into the hearts of those who witness its fury. The true dragon can activate this ability as a free action whenever it attacks, charges, uses its breath weapon, or flies overhead. This ability only affects enemies with less Hit Dice than the true dragon. All enemies within a range of 30 feet times the true dragon’s age category must succeed on a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 the true dragon’s Hit Dice + the true dragon’s Charisma modifier) or become shaken for 5d6 rounds, or panicked for the same duration if the affected creature has 4 or fewer Hit Dice. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected by the same true dragon’s frightful presence for 24 hours. This is a mind-affecting fear effect

Trap Master (Ex): Starting at 6th level, a copper dragon receives a racial bonus equal to its age category on Craft (traps) and Perception checks made to locate a trap. In addition, the copper dragon can use Disable Device to disarm magic traps as if he had the rogue’s Trapfinding class feature.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex): Starting at 9th level, a copper dragon can react to danger before its senses would normally allow it to do so. It cannot be caught flatfooted, nor does it lose its Dex bonus to AC if the attacker is invisible. It still loses its Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized. A copper dragon with this ability can still lose its Dexterity bonus to AC if an opponent successfully uses the feint action against it. 

If the copper dragon already has uncanny dodge from a different class, it automatically gains improved uncanny dodge (see the Glossary) instead. 

Gold Dragons Edit

In addition to the racial traits gained by all true dragons, gold dragons have the following traits: 

• +2 Strength: Gold dragons are the most physically 

strong of the metallic dragons, and one of the 

strongest types of all dragons. 

Small: Gold dragons are Small creatures and gain a +1 size bonus to their AC, a +1 size bonus on attack rolls, a –1 penalty to their Combat Maneuver Bonus and Combat Maneuver Defense, and a +4 size bonus on Stealth checks. 

Dragon (Fire): Gold dragons are dragons with the fire subtype, gaining the following traits as a result: 

Gold dragons are immune to fire, paralysis and sleep effects. 

Vulnerability to Cold (Ex): Gold dragons take half again as much damage (+50%) from cold, regardless of whether a saving throw is allowed or if the save is a success or failure. 

Slow Speed: Gold dragons have a base speed of 20 feet on land. They also have a swim speed equal to their base land speed, can move in water without making Swim checks, always treat Swim as a class skill, and gain a +8 racial bonus on Swim checks. 

Water Breathing (Ex): A gold dragon can breathe underwater indefinitely and can freely use its breath weapon, spells, and other abilities while submerged (its breath weapon becomes a cone of boiling water and superheated steam). 

Class Features 

In addition to the class features gained by all true dragons, gold dragons have the following class features: 

Breath Weapon (Su): A gold dragon’s breath weapon is a cone of bright flames that deals fire damage. A gold dragon’s secondary breath is a cone of weakening gas. Creatures within the cone must succeed on a Fortitude save or one point of Strength damage per age category of the gold dragon. 

Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): Starting at 3rd level, a gold dragon gains limited spell-like abilities. The exact abilities gained depend on the gold dragon’s class level, according to the following table. In each case, the caster level equals the gold dragon’s class level. The DC for a saving throw against a gold dragon’s spell-like ability is 10 + the spell level + the gold dragon’s Charisma modifier. 

When the same spell appears multiple times on the table, the gold dragon gains the higher-level ability. Otherwise, these spell-like abilities are cumulative.

Change Shape (Su): At 6th level, a gold dragon gains the ability to change into another form once per. This ability functions as a polymorph spell, except the gold dragon can only take animal and humanoid forms. It can remain in an alternate form indefinitely.

Detect Gems (Sp): At 9th level, a gold dragon gains the ability to detect gems near it three times per day. This functions as a locate object spell with a caster level equal to the gold dragon’s class level, except it can only be used to locate gemstones. 

Fast Flight (Ex): Starting at 10th level, a gold dragon’s fly speed is always 50 feet faster than a that of a normal true dragon of its class level. However, it counts as one size category larger when determining its maneuverability. 

Luck (Sp): At 19th level, a gold dragon gains the ability to touch a gemstone and enspell it with great luck as a standard action once per day. For as long as the gold dragon carries the gem, it and every good creature within 10 feet per age category gain a +1 luck bonus on all saving throws. The gold dragon can give the enspelled gem to another creature, but only the bearer will gain the bonus. This effect lasts 1d3 hours plus 3 hours per age category of the gold dragon. This is the equivalent of a 2nd-level spell.

silver dragons possess a natural might that rivals

Level Silver Dragon Spell-Like Abilities    

New Feats Edit

Unless specifically noted, any character can take the following feats if they meet the prerequisites, even if they aren’t a true dragon.

Half-Dragon Form (Heritage) Edit

You have more control over your shapeshifting.

Prerequisites: Humanoid Form feat.

Benefit: When you use your Humanoid Form

feat to change shape, you can choose to retain your breath weapon, natural armor bonus to your AC, natural weapons (though you can only retain the ones appropriate to your new size), and wings. These function as normal, adjusted for your current size.

Humanoid Form (Heritage) Edit

You can disguise yourself as a nondragon, allowing you to blend into places you would not otherwise be able to visit.

Prerequisites: Dragon type, non-humanoid form.

Benefit: You gain the ability to change shape as a full-round action. When you use this ability, you assume the appearance of a specific humanoid form (selected at the time of choosing the feat). This form is Medium-sized or Small size, with eyes and hair the color of your scales. Your ability scores do not change, although you lose the ability to use your breath weapon (if any), natural attacks, and wings, as well as your natural armor bonus to your AC. You do not gain any of the special abilities or traits of your new form. You can return to your natural form as a free action. You can remain in your alternate form indefinitely. This is a supernatural ability.

If you already have the change shape ability, you can use that ability one additional time per day (it still functions as normal).

Fires of Youth Edit

The power of your inner fire is far beyond your years. Prerequisites: True dragon level 3rd.

Benefit: Your levels in the true dragon monster classes and your levels in other classes stack for determining the effectiveness of your breath weapon (including treating you as a higher age category, if applicable). You still do not gain your secondary breath weapon unless you reach 7th level in the true dragon monster class.

Village Burner Edit

You can unleash wide, strafing blasts of energy towards the ground while in flight.

Prerequisites: Breath weapon, Flyby Attack.

Benefit: While using your breath weapon with the Flyby Attack feat, you can strafe the ground with a larger area of effect. As long as you move in a straight line, you can use your breath weapon for a distance of up to half your fly speed. To determine the affected area, find the area that your breath weapon would normally affect, then extend its effects the desired distance in a straight line. Measure the extended distance from the center of the area.

For example, if a dragon with a 60-foot cone breath weapon breathed was flying at an altitude of 30 feet and breathed directly downwards while in flight for 80 feet of distance, its breath weapon would cover an oblong area 30 feet wide and 110 feet long (because the dragon’s cone-shaped breath affects a 15-foot radius circle on the ground from that altitude, it would create a rectangle 80 feet long and 30 feet wide, with 15-foot radius semicircles on each end).
