Dragon's Blood[edit]

Whether it be by the strange experiments of a Wizard, or maybe some strange curse, the Draconic Knights have the blood of dragons. Many Draconic Knights hate dragons, as well as whatever it was to give them the Dragon blood, but, sometimes, they must embrace the power.

Draconic Parts[edit]

At 1st level, you have a Draconic Tail, and one of your limbs is also Draconic, and covered in grey, colourless scales, with claws at the end. Your tail can hold objects that weigh 5 lbs. or less, but cannot attack with weapons. Both your Draconic Limb and Tail can be used as weapons that you are proficient in. Your Draconic Limb has the finesse property, a range of 5 feet, and deals 1d6 + your Strength/Dexterity slashing or piercing damage. Your Draconic Tail has the finesse property, a range of 5 feet, and deals 1d6 + your Dexterity/Strength modifier slashing damage. If you take the attack action on your turn, if your Draconic Limb or Draconic Tail is not holding something, you can make an attack as a bonus action with one of them, still gaining the damage bonus from your Strength/Dexterity modifier. If you are weilding a two-handed weapon, you lose the modifier to damage with your tail.

At 17th level, your Draconic Limb and Draconic Tail's damage now counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistances.

Draconic Casting[edit]

At first level, the Draconic Blood mixed with that of a normal humanoid being gives you some, unnatural magic abilities, allowing you to cast spells. You can use an arcane focus for your spells, and you can substitute arcane focuses with shields.

Spell save DC = 8 + proficiency bonus + Charisma modifier
Spell attack modifier = proficiency bonus + Charisma modifier

Defense

While you are wearing armor, you gain a +1 bonus to AC.

Great Weapon Fighting

When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll, even if the new roll is a 1 or a 2. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.

Protection

When a creature you can see attacks a target other than you that is within 5 feet of you, you can use your reaction to impose disadvantage on the attack roll. You must be wielding a shield.
