Draconic Bloodline

( Dragon Compendium)


You are descended from a dragon. The dragon bloodline is strong in both physical power and magic. Your characteristics might vary with the type of dragon from which you are descended, but you share some traits with others of draconic blood. Like your majestic reptilian ancestor, you are proud and of noble bearing, and you might even share its coloration in some way.

Although characters with draconic blood can have any alignment, they are prone to mimic their dragon ancestor's personalities. Others often see them as somewhat arrogant and obsessive, but the dragon- blooded usually feel justifiably proud of their abilities. Spellcasters with draconic ancestors love knowledge and beautiful items, and they often adventure to acquire one or the other. Their spell selections tend toward either flamboyant, combat-oriented spells, or knowledge- gathering spells. Sorcerers of this bloodline favor the same environments as their dragon ancestors.


Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

Required for

Dragon Sight (DC) ,


Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, according to the following list.
1st—Comprehend languages
3rd—-Protectionfrom elements
6th—True seeing
8th—Mind blank
9th—Dominate monster


If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class that granted him access to this feat, he gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if he learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

A character with the Draconic Bloodline feat retains many of the strengths and weaknesses of his ancestor. As such, he must choose a category of spells (often spells with a certain descriptor) that he cannot learn or cast. (For example, the descendant of a green dragon might not be able to cast spells with the earth descriptor, while the heir of a bronze dragon might be denied access to spells with the fire descriptor.) Such spells do not appear on the character's spell list for any class. The DM should be involved in the decision about which category of spells the character is denied.

A character may choose only one base bloodline feat.
