View Full Version : Dragon Tamer 5E Class [Tentative] (PEACH)

2017-05-02, 02:06 PM
Hi guys, so I've been working on a fun little Dragon Tamer class. I have a very tentative draft that's still missing the archetypes and essence modifications and I was wondering if you guys had any thoughts and suggestions on the matter.

Any and all criticisms and ideas are welcomed on how I can improve this and make it as fun as possible.

I've made a lot of updates to the class, but I still need some advice on it if anyone would be willing to help me out. Any and all criticisms are welcome!

In all honesty, I don't feel this concept as a base class, or even an archetype. I mean, a dragon is entrusting you to raise its child? What dragon, anywhere, would entrust that to a 1st-level character? The backstory behind such an event is worthy of its own adventure, where an established PC earns said dragon's trust and is given the chance to raise the dragon's child.

In other words, you might rework this as a prestige class (http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/prestige-classes-and-rune-magic). Ten levels instead of twenty, and maybe at least 5th level to even consider attempting. You know, past the whole 'get a dragon to trust you' bit.

I can see what you mean, I have some stronger fluff justifications for the next version.

Do you have any thoughts on the mechanical aspects?
