    Default 'Cause I Have Wings, And I Can Fly! [4E, Feats]

    So, a big part of the appeal of the Dragonborn for me, at least, was that the preview art sometimes showed them with wings. I imagined that, via appropriate feats or some such, one could eventually get your Dragonborn character to fly under his own power. While I've only had a chance to begin perusing my books (they arrived while I was away), I can't find anything to help me support this idea. So, here are my rough attempts at a solution. It's only an outline at this stage, since I haven't had a chance to get a sense of the numbers, but here it goes:

    Draconic Wings [Dragonborn, Heroic]
    Prerequisites: Dragonborn, feat must be taken at 1st level
    Benefit: You have a pair of wings that provide you with a +X bonus to Athletics checks involving jumping or climbing.

    Draconic Flight [Dragonborn, Paragon]
    Prerequisites: Dragonborn, Draconic Wings feat
    Benefit: Your wings now grant you a fly speed of X. You are consider a clumsy flier, and have an altitude limit of X.

    Improved Maneuverability
    Prerequisites: Fly speed (clumsy)
    Benefit: Your flight is no longer considered clumsy.

    Prerequisites: Fly speed (non-clumsy)
    Benefit: You may now hover.

    Improved Altitude
    Prerequisites: Fly speed
    Benefit: Your altitude limit increases by X.
    You may take this feat multiple times. Its effects stack.

    Looks fine to me, though it should be noted flight can be gotten by classes around level 16 (See wizard utility 16 Fly, Page 165 PHB). I'd start with a +2 bonus to athletics, And fly speed equal to the ground speed or some such. Don't know about the altitude limit.

    Yeah, flight is really powerful in that edition, you'd probably have to have some sort of in-combat restriction on flight based on how hard it is to move in air and battle at the same time. Or something.
