Krynnish Dragons

D&D 3e (3.0/3.5) Rules

by André La Roche


Note: For some these rules to best make sense, sort rules by author and read up on what else is made by this author.

Dragons are the children of Paladine and Takhisis. Originally there were five dragons of metal, however Takhisis grew jealous of these creatures, and wanted them for herself, whispering corruption to these original dragons, their metals tarnished and they were forever corrupted into the chromatics of nowadays. Reorx, seeing Paladine grieving for the loss of his children, forged five new dragons of metals more beautiful and splendid than the last. These are the metallic dragons that populate the land to this very day.

On Krynn, there are two additional age categories beyond what is presented in the Monster Manual: Ancient Wyrm, and Legendary Wyrm. It is very important to note that both of these categories are extremely rare, there only being 11 documented cases of any Legendary Wyrms throughout history: The original ten dragons, and Malystryx, the Red. However, they DO exist. Reason enough to present them. But first, there are a few other changes to dragons from the Monster Manual that need to be made.

Polymorph Self (su): Bronze, Gold, and Silver dragons all gain their polymorph self ability as usual. However, all other dragons native to Ansalon have a 35% chance to possess such an ability, usable 3/day. A dragon's polymorph self ability works just like the spell, except that each use allows only one change, which lasts until the dragon assumes another form or reverts to its own (which does not count as a use of this ability). Also, a dragon who is polymorphed in this fashion retains its physical ability scores.

Primordial Magic and Mysticism: Dragons in the 5th Age have access to the School of Sorcery and Sphere of Mysticism Feats for free. Chromatic dragons gain School of Sorcery once per every spell level they could normally cast from, and gain the spellcasting bonus as if they were a Primal Sorcerer of their appropriate casting level. Metallic dragons gain this feat a number of times equal to half the spell levels they could cast from.

Metallic dragons gain the Sphere of Mysticism feat once per every spell level they could normally cast from, and gain the spellcasting bonus as if they were a Mystic of their appropriate casting level. Chromatic dragons gain this feat a number of times equal to half the spell levels they could cast from.
