Dragontouched is an acquired template that can be added to any humanoid (but not monstrous humanoid) referred to hereafter as the base creature. The dragon infuses the character with a shard of their essence, granting the character a fraction of the Dragons potential power. Already rare to begin with, it is extremely rare, for a Dragon of evil alignment to share of itself in this manner. Evil Dragons are far more likely to create "Spawn" or "Vassal's" which they can manipulate to a greater degree, without so intimate a cost to themselves, thus almost all Dragontouched are created by Metallic (or on rare occasion Orthlox) Dragons. Some calculations based on Dragon type providing the template are required. These calculations are always made using the statistics of an "Adult" dragon of the appropriate kind (regardless of actual age category of Dragon providing the shard).

Size and Type: The creature's type fluctuates between Human and Dragon (whichever is most advantageous for the circumstances). Size is unchanged. Do not recalculate base attack bonus or saves.
Hit Die: Creatures base racial or class hit die increase by one size, to a maximum of D12.
Speed: As base creature.
Armor Class: As base creature.
Attack: As base creature.
Full Attack: As base creature.
Special Attacks: As base creature.

Special Qualities:

Dragonsight (EX): You gain Lowlight vision (2x normal range), and Darkvision 60ft.
Slow Aging (EX): A dragon touched creature adds 50% to each age category for his race when determining aging effects.
Immune: to Sleep and Paralysis effects.
Spell Resistance: Equal to Half the "Adult" spell resistance for a dragon of the appropriate kind (between 9-12 depending on dragon type/ do not round down).
Spellcasting (SU): All Dragontouched gain the ability to cast spells as a 1st-level Sorcerer. If the base creature already possessed levels in Sorcerer, then the Dragontouched's effective sorcerer level increases by +1.
Frightful Presence (SU): As Dragon's frightful presence ability, 30 ft. radius. (Will save DC 10+1/2 HD+Cha bonus).
Abilities: Increase from the base creature as follows: +2 Dex, +2 Con, +2 Int, and Increase Wis, and Cha, by half the modifier for an adult dragon of the appropriate kind (+0 to +5 depending on dragon type).
Skills: Dragontouched have a +4 bonus to Intimidate, listen, search and spot checks. All Dragontouched add Intimidate, search, sense motive, Spellcraft, and Spot to their class skills.
