Dragon Savant Abilities

The Dragon Savant relies upon divine spell casting and training as a Dwarven Defender to make himself a bastion of resilience and endurance.

Level 1: Ultravision x1, Camouflage x1, Magic Fang x1, CLW x5
Level 2: Extended Camouflage x1, Charm Person or Animal x2, Lesser Restore x4

Dwarven Defender Capabilities: Through his training amongst the ranks of the legendary Dwarven Defenders, the Dragon Savant has learnt many invaluable techniques. Through extensive training drills, the Dragon Savant has toughened his skin to the point where he can shrug off 9 points of damage from any physical source, turning any major blow into a minor one, and completely disregarding many minor blows. The Dragon Savant can also take on a Defensive Stance, boosting their strength, constitution, saving throws, and ability to dodge incoming blows.

Monk Training: The Dragon Savant spent many years at a monastery that was home to an order of nature loving monks and learned many defensive capabilities. The Dragon Savant may Evade many spells or Resist them entirely, Deflect Arrows, and move with great speed. He can also still his Mind to protect against enchantments and Purify his Body to be as tough as a Diamond, to become immune to common diseases and all poisons. The Dragon Savant has also learnt to turn their entire body into a weapon, allowing them to fight furiously when unarmed, striking frequently with a Flurry of Blows. Best of all, the Dragon Savant may use their perceptiveness of the world around them to their advantage in combat, allowing the Dragon Savant to apply his Wisdom bonus to his Armour Class.

The Dragon Savant In CombatDruidic Lore: Through long periods of communing with nature, the Dragon Savant knows when to step lightly and not walk on the grass. The Dragon Savant has attracted a loyal animal companion who provides pleasant company during the long treks between adventures. Through his Animal Empathy, the Dragon Savant may charm animals to fight at his side. He has also mastered the art of Wild Shaping himself into many different animal forms, though of course, none of them compare to his awe inspiring draconic form.

Dragon Form: The central element of the Dragon Savant is the ability for him to shift into the form of a Dragon, three times per day, for a maximum of 14 hours at a time. When in Dragon Form and empowered by Divine Spells, the Dragon Savant's combat skills are positively awe inspiring.
