Dragon Fighter[edit]


A powerful warrior who have been chosen by dragon to become its champion. The reason why a dragon has chosen its champion is always a mystery. The only people who truly know are the champions themselves. Some people say they do it for no reason, others say that they have a quest or journey that they want their champion to do in their place and some say they just want to have some fun. Dragon Blade are powerful warriors that are not very well-known. Dragons are very selective when choosing a champion and because of this not many are around. There is also a rule for dragons about choosing champions, and it's only the powerful dragons may have a champion. Its a symbol of pride and power to them. The longer a champion remains loyal the more draconic they become.

Unarmored Defense[edit]

While you are not wearing any armor your Armor Class equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Charisma modifier.


On your turn, you can enter a rage as a bonus action. While raging, you gain the following benefits if you aren't wearing heavy armor:

  • You have advantage on all Strength checks and Strength saving throws.
  • When you make a melee weapon attack using Strength, you gain a bonus to the damage rolls that increases as you gain levels as a barbarian, as shown in the Rage Damage column of the Barbarian table.
  • You have resistance to bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.
  • If you are able to cast spells, you can't cast them or concentrate on them while raging.

Your rage lasts for 1 minutes. It ends early if you are knocked unconscious or if your turn ends and you haven't attacked a hostile creature since your last turn or taken damage since then. You can also end your rage on your turn as a bonus action.

Once you have raged the number of times shown for your Dragon Fighter level in the Rages column of the Dragon Fighter table, you must finish a long rest before you can rage again.

Reckless Attack[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, when you make your first attack on your turn, you can decide to attack recklessly. Doing so gives you advantage on all melee weapon attack rolls using Strength during that turn, but attack rolls against you are rolled with advantage until the beginning of your next turn.

Draconic Style Feature[edit]

At 3rd level, you choose a style that shapes the nature of your attack. Choose the Healing Style or the Power Style, both detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 3rd level and again at 6th, 10th, 15th, and 18th levels.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Beginning at 7th level, you can nimbly dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a red dragon's fiery breath or an Ice Storm spell. When you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, you can use your reaction to instead take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, and only half damage if you fail.

Fast Movement[edit]

At 9th level, your speed increases by 10 feet while you aren't wearing Heavy Armor.

Dragon's Gifts[edit]

Beginning at 11th level, while you're raging you gain scales, fangs, slit-eyes and wings. Because of these features your AC is increased by 2. Whenever you take the attack action, you can make a bite attack (1d12) and two claw attacks (1d8) if you are not wielding any weapons or shields. These attacks count as magical in case of overcoming resistances. You now also have darkvision at a range of 60 feet and can fly at a speed of 30 feet with your wings. These features end when your rage ends.

Athletics Master[edit]

At 13th level, you may add your proficiency bonus to Athletics checks, if you are already proficient then add double your proficiency bonus to Athletics checks.

Precise Strike[edit]

Beginning at 14th level your weapon attacks score a critical hit on a roll of 19 or 20.
