Void Dragon
« on: April 26, 2013, 12:00:35 PM »
There aren't any actual Void Dragons listed in some obscure sourcebook somewhere, are there? I hope not.
Still WIP. I'm trying to think of appropriate class features to fill out the levels without just ripping off the Nullblade. Any ideas?
The racial class should be 20 levels long when I'm done with it, going up to either Ancient or Mature Adult age category, depending on how worried people are about the whole "Old True Dragons get Epic feats" thing.

Void Dragon Racial Traits
  • -2 Str, +2 Wis
  • Small Dragon: +1 stuff, immune sleep and paralyze
  • Base Speed 30 feet
  • Breathless (Ex): While not truly breathless, Void Dragons can hold their breath for exceptionally long periods of time, and need very little oxygen to survive. Void Dragons can hold their breath for one day per age category per point of Constitution, and count as creatures one size category smaller than normal per age category when determining the amount of air they consume. They do not suffer any penalties or take any damage for holding their breath in a vacuum, nor for traveling to environments with very thin atmospheres, such as high altitudes.
  • Darkvision: Void Dragons have darkvision out to a range of 60 feet.
  • Gliding (Ex): A Void Dragon can use her wings to glide, negating damage from a fall of any height and allowing 20 feet of forward travel for every 5 feet of descent. Void Dragons glide at a speed of 40 feet (average maneuverability). Even if a Void Dragon's maneuverability improves, she can't hover while gliding. A Void Dragon can't glide while carrying a medium or heavy load. If a Void Dragon becomes unconscious or helpless while in midair, her wings naturally unfurl and powerful ligaments stiffen the wings. The Void Dragon descends in a tight corkscrew and takes only 1d6 points of falling damage, no matter what the actual distance of the fall.
       Flight (Ex/Su): When a Void Dragon reaches 5 Hit Dice, she becomes able to fly at a speed of 40 feet (average maneuverability). A Void Dragon can't fly while carrying a medium or heavy load or while fatigued or exhausted. Void Dragons can safely fly for a number of rounds equal to their Constitution modifier (minimum 1 round). They can exert themselves to fly for up to twice as long, but then they're fatigued at the end of the flight. Void Dragons are likewise fatigued after spending a total of more than 10 minutes per day flying. Because Void Dragons can glide before, after, and between rounds of actual flight, they can remain aloft for extended periods (even if they can only use flight for 1 round at a time without becoming fatigued).
       When they reach 10 Hit Dice, Void Dragons have enough stamina and prowess to fly for longer periods. They can fly at a speed of 40 feet (average maneuverability), and flying requires no more exertion than walking or running. A Void Dragon with flight can make a dive attack. A dive attack works like a charge, but the Void Dragon must move a minimum of 30 feet and descend at least 10 feet. A Void Dragon can make a dive attack only when wielding a piercing weapon; if the attack hits, it deals double damage. A Void Dragon with flight can use the run action while flying, provided she flies in a straight line.
       Void Dragons capable of flight can fly even without an atmosphere. Their wings are only partially responsible for their flight.
  • Low-Light: Void Dragons can see twice as far as normal in dim light.
  • Spell-like Abilities (Sp): Void Dragons can whisper across nothingness. They can use message 3 times per day.
  • True Dragon: Void Dragons are true dragons.
  • Bite: Void Dragons have a bite attack that deals 1d6 damage. Void Dragons determine their reach with this bite attack (but not with other natural attacks) as if they were bipedal (tall), not quadrupedal (long).
  • Favored Class: Nullblade.
  • Automatic Languages: Common, Draconic.
  • Bonus Languages:
