Overview

Basics

Description: It is rumored that the magical powers of sorcerers and bards are somehow connected to the presence of dragon blood in their family tree. Dragon Disciples are sorcerers, and sometimes bards, who use their magical power as a catalyst to ignite their dragon blood, realizing its fullest potential. They prefer a life of exploration to a cloistered existence. Already adept at magic, many pursue adventure, especially if it furthers their goal of finding out more about their draconic heritage. They often feel drawn to areas known to harbor dragons.

Dragon Disciple Types

When you take your first level of Dragon Disciple, you will get a bonus feat. You MUST use this feat to choose a "Dragon Disciple Type:" feat which will represent the type of dragon in your character's heritage. This will also have an effect on your class abilities at later levels. You must take the dragon type that you and the DM running your PRC quest agreed on. Also, even though they may be available, DO NOT take a second dragon type feat. Doing so will, at best, mess up your character or at worst get you banned if we determine you did this as an attempt to exploit the class.
