Dragon Arm Edit

Soft Canon Edit

The Dragon Arm is a class created by Qadam and balanced by Maxim. The Dragon Arm was created for the soft canon Alpachi Death Canyon.

History Edit

The group of 9 adventurers discovered an ancient temple in their travels, filled with carvings of dragons and draconic text. The evil around the temple warped and corrupted their thoughts, two of the adventurers could not resist the call of the dragons and remained behind. A Dragonborn and a Human remained. The other 7 had left and the two that remained have been lost to history as well. The 7 never returned to find out the fate of their brethren, although the darkness that looms over the temple has grown stronger with time, and draconic cries echo through the valleys that surround the temple.

The draconic root you select determines the type of dragon attached to your arm. As a free action you can transform one of your arms (you select which arm the first time you transform, this becomes the permanent arm which transforms and cannot be changed) into the head and neck of a dragon the same type as the draconic root you selected (the head of the dragon is approximately where your hand would be, the neck is approximately where your arm and forearm would be) you can also dismiss the transformation as a free action, the transformation disappears if you fall unconscious. The dragon is a sentient creature, and has a name. Listed in the bottom is a table of dragon personality traits, where you can determine the dragons personality trait, bond, ideal, and flaw. When you select the draconic root you will also roll stats for the dragon as you would for a new character. Because the dragon is sentient it can be put under magical effects (charmed, mind controlled etc.) The dragon is also proficient in perception, history, and nature, as well as being proficient with its bite and breath weapon. While your arm is transformed into the dragon, when you make STR checks to lift an object, shove a creature, or grapple a creature, you can add the dragons STR modifier to your roll. While transformed you lose access to one of your arms, but when you dismiss the transformation your arm returns to you. While you are transformed you cannot make Stealth checks to hide the arm, or Sleight of Hand checks with the arm.

While you are transformed you can make the following actions with the dragon.

Bite: You command the dragon to bite a creature (5ft reach, one target, 1d8+the Dragons STR modifier as piercing damage + your STR modifier and proficiency bonus as the dragons damage type)

Slam: You command the dragon to slam into a creature (5ft reach, one target, 1d8+ the Dragons STR + your proficiency bonus as bludgeoning damage), if you take this action you can attempt to shove a creature as a bonus action, making a contested STR check using the dragons STR + your STR modifier)

Roar: You command the dragon to roar, dealing 2d4 + the Dragons CHA modifier to all creatures that can hear within 30ft, the dragon can only do this once per long rest. Increasing by an additional 2d4 every third level.

Breathe Weapon: The dragon unleashes its breath attack, dealing 3d6 damage as the dragon’s damage type. Creatures in range must fail in a DEX saving throw with the Dragons DEX + your proficiency bonus as the DC to take damage, if they succeed the DEX saving thrown they take no damage. This feature has (Recharge 7-8). The damage for the breathe attack increases to 6d6 at 6th level, 6d10 at 10th level, 9d10 at 14th level, and 12d10 at 20th level.

The spells damage, appearance, effects, and descriptions alter to match your dragon’s damage type. (Strong enough spells are AOE spells or 4th level or higher spells)
