yeah, i'm a returning DnD player, i havent played in 2 years, so i'm pretty much lost, i'm relearning slowly, and while i know it'll be tough i want a half dragon character, cuz my old character was a half dragon and i want to continue Callisto's proud legacy.
any advice? and where can i get the half dragon rules?
This night is wild, so cold and dull, these hearts they race from self control
Carpe Noctem (because Diem is too bright)
Blood Angels Wins:6-Draws:0-Losses:5...apparently i'm doing decently for a guy who randomly charges into certain oblivion
Half Dragon rules are in the back of the mosnster manual. You have to apply a template to whatever the other half of you is (eg.human/troll/orc/whatever).
I doubt it will be tough, half-dragons are one of the most hardcore races you can go. You get the half-dragon stat bonuses and another race of your choosing's stat bonuses as well.
Most GM's (at least the ones I know), including me, don't allow half-dragons unless all the other players can go monstrous creatures as well. They're pretty cheesy.
Yeah.. the half-dragon template do seem like a brain fart, being overwhelmingly powerful for drawbacks. But then again, it all comes to how creative your DM are. To even out the huge bonuses, I usually rule that people fear the "scaly monster", which means that half dragon PCs tend to find themselvs at the buisness end of an angry mob every time they show thieir face in public when I DM for one, but not eve that is enough if the player is smart enough to get the change self or alter self spells.
If you want to continue your half dragons legacy, then why not play a sorceror with some draconic legacy feats from "complete arcane"? That would definately work, without overpowering your character.
And to those of you who think that the half-dragon template is mean, I have played an actual fully grown dragon as a PC... twice :tongue: Every player should try that a few times in their careers.. its great fun.
Yeah, but doing that to the half-dragon screws over the other PC's as well cos they can't be seen with him, and that excludes him from practically all role-playing with NPC's, rendering him a combat-munchie non-roleplayer that the half-dragon template and the d20 system in general mould players out to be.Originally Posted by Farseer SareldThat's a good idea. You can then take the dragon disciple prestige class, and you get all the benefits of the half-dragon template and none of the level adjustment. It also means you won't be too cheesy because you'll be level 15, and by that time, everyone is cheesy, half-dragon or not.Originally Posted by Farseer Sareld
ive had a bard that became a dragon disciple, sorcerors shoudl be able to do it to if i remember right.
it was a wierd experience. i really didnt have fun playing the bard aspect. almost gave up on him numerous times. i think my dm just didnt know how to run a campaign with a bard. out of 10 years of rp'ng and numerous groups and dm's thats the only time ive ever seen a bard played lol.
the dragon disciples are pretty powerful though, i can just imagine how gross it would be with sorceror base class.
leave the moderating to the moderators
if pro is the opposite of con, does that mean progress is the opposite of congress?
