Half-Dragon

Half-dragon creatures are always more formidable than others of their kind that do not have dragon blood, and their appearance betrays their nature-scales, elongated features, reptilian eyes, and exaggerated teeth and claws. Sometimes they have wings.

Creating A Half-Dragon

'Half-dragon' is an inherited template that can be added to any living, corporeal creature (referred to hereafter as the base creature).

A half-dragon uses all the base creature's statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

Size and Type: The creature's type changes to dragon. Size is unchanged. Do not recalculate base attack bonus or saves.

Hit Dice: Increase base creature's racial HD by one die size, to a maximum of d12. Do not increase class HD.

Speed: A half-dragon that is Large or larger has wings and can fly at twice its base land speed (maximum 120 ft.) with average maneuverability. A half-dragon that is Medium or smaller does not have wings.

Armor Class: Natural armor improves by +4.

Attack: A half-dragon has two claw attacks and a bite attack, and the claws are the primary natural weapon. If the base creature can use weapons, the half-dragon retains this ability. A half-dragon fighting without weapons uses a claw when making an attack action. When it has a weapon, it usually uses the weapon instead.

Full Attack: A half-dragon fighting without weapons uses both claws and its bite when making a full attack. If armed with a weapon, it usually uses the weapon as its primary attack and its bite as a natural secondary attack. If it has a hand free, it uses a claw as an additional natural secondary attack.

Damage: Half-dragons have bite and claw attacks. If the base creature does not have these attack forms, use the damage values in the table below. Otherwise, use the values below or the base creature's damage values, whichever are greater.

Special Attacks: A half-dragon retains all the special attacks of the base creature and gains a breath weapon based on the dragon variety (see the table below), usable once per day. A half-dragon's breath weapon deals 6d8 points of damage. A successful Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 half-dragon's racial HD + half-dragon's Con modifier) reduces damage by half.

Abilities: Increase from the base creature as follows: Str +8, Con +2, Int +2, Cha +2.

Skills: A half-dragon gains skill points as a dragon and has skill points equal to (6 + Int modifier) x?(HD + 3). Do not include Hit Dice from class levels in this calculation-the half-dragon gains dragon skill points only for its racial Hit Dice, and gains the normal amount of skill points for its class levels. Treat skills from the base creature's list as class skills, and other skills as cross-class.

Environment: Same as either the base creature or the dragon variety.

Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature + 2 (minimum 3).

Alignment: Same as the dragon variety.

Level Adjustment: Same as base creature +3.

Lia whispers back to Fay, " Ionneg, I'm okay. I took a little damage from the link but nothing too much. It caught me off guard. I'm trying to save my spells for what is coming next. " She pulls her bag of holding off of her bag and rummages through it. Smiling she hands a reddish potion to Fay. " This is what you need Ionneg. Take this and you should be fine. "

She looks to the others. " I feel that we should press ahead now. We have them on the run. It is as Silas said. If we are going this way then we must go immediately. Otherwise we give them time to regroup and prepare defenses against us. What do you think, Geoffroy?"

Out of Character: : Ash, Lia has most of her spell slots left. We have plenty of healing available from the clerics and paiadin. I'm confident that we can push through. Going another way exposes us to unknown dangers. As long as we keep things well lit they will have a hard time doing much damage to us.

Ninja, she handed Fay a potion of healing.
