    Background: Since ancient times, before the written word came into being, tribes had rituals in which they revered totems and consumed parts of the enemies to gain their strenght, cunning or other aspects. Some of the earliest shamans and wizards, most notably Korg, even took the beards of beaten enemy spellcasters to add their power to their own. It did not take long for people to do this with other creatures instead and dragons proved to be the ultimate predator to prey on. Zaydian Slayers often operate in duo's or small groups hwere one Zaydian Slayer, as the senior, acts as a guide and teacher for apprentice Zaudian slayers or younger Zaydian Slayers. Seniority is established by order of number of names, hearts and totems.

    Abilities

    Dragon totem: A Zaydian Slayer derives extra benefits from items crafted from the remains of dragons he fought. If the item fashioned is armour or a shield the Zydian Slayer gains energyprotection to the breathweapon of the dragon whose remains have been used in the creation to the value of 5 for every classlevel of Zaydian Slayer he has. In the case of a weapon, the Slayer gets 1d6 of elemental damage, matching the element of the dragon's breath weapon, for every classlevel of Zaydian Slayer. In the case of an instrument the instrument doubles the masterwork bonus said instrument gives, compared to a regular masterwork version of it, and gives a circumstancebonus of +2 per slayer level to the perform skill governing the use of the instrument. Other items- like wands, staves, amulets and other wondrous items - the casterlevel of the crafted item gets boosted by 1 for every level of the Slayer using it.

    A Zaydian Slayer can use 1 totem per type of dragon he has slain. Gaining the benefits of a totem takes 1 day and the slayer loses the benefit when separated from his totem for 1 day. The Zyadian Slayer must first lose the benefit of a preivous totem to gain the benefit form another totem of the same dragon.

    Dragonforce: At level 2 the slayer get the ability to gain a natural weapon matching a natural weapon of the dragons whose totems the Slayer owns as a standard action. This ability lasts for the rest of the encounter and the wings selected for this feat grant no flightspeed. The Natural weapon matches that of the slain dragon if it would have as many HD as the Zaydian Slayer has effective class levels.

    Grace of the Dragon: At lvl 3 the Zaydian Slayer gains etherial wings shaped like a dragon's granting a flightspeed of 60 feet (good maneuverability).

    Heart of the Dragon: At lvl 4 the Zaydian Slayer can, when he has slain a dragon, eat the Dragon's heart to gain the dragon's natural armour and its breathweapon. The Zaydian Slayer can ony have one breathweapon this way and by consuming a new heart he gains the breathweapon of the latest eaten dragon heart's dragon.

    Spirit of the dragon: Upon reaching lvl 5 the Zaydian Slayer unlocks his true draconic potential: Of every new dragon he slays he absorbs the spirit, allowing him to polymorph into these dragons. Doing so requires a full round action and is triggered by a verbal (name of the dragon) and somatic trigger. This is a spell-like ability and can be used only once per day, for the duration of twice his Con modifier or Cha modifier, whichever is higher, regained at rest. The Zaydian Slayer can only make use of the forms of the souls he has abosorbed and his own natural form. When choosing a form he will take on the form of the dragon whose name he uses with his ECL as the limit of HD for the form to use. When slaying a dragon the Zaydain Slayer will absorb the dragon's soul and have a name appear on his body in the form of a non-removable tattoo. The Zaydian Slayer has instictive knowledge of the names he carries, even if the location of the name tattoo prohibits him from reading it.
