Maybe an optional setting where the DM can decide you gain strength with age, maybe a post level 20 feature or even just as a DM decides if you are targeted with aging magic to enhance one or some of your abilities. Since dragons gain strength with age and what not.

Hey I have one suggestion many this should have two sub classes one for more sorcerer magic based and The other more physical based.--Erlek Thunder weaver (talk | contribs | email) 05:36, 2 May 2019 (MDT)

Just a tiny thing.[edit]

When you get the breath weapon, the text says that you start with a 2d10 damage, but in the table it said 1d10. So I though that maybe, because the text was something made after the table, I should fix it a bit. :3 — [17:49|GMT -1] ReDeath 2020 April 19.

Thanks for pointing out the mismatch, the damage of the breath weapon was supposed to start out as 1d10 at 2nd level and improve from there, but it seems I made a mistake in that. Either way, gj spotting that.--Blobby383b (talk) 13:38, 19 April 2020 (MDT)
No problem! Your class is pretty cool, to be honest. But would you add some kind of bonus in terms of the “hoard”? I though that because it’s important for all dragons to have great amounts of money that you could make the dragon receive bonuses when he gets a specific amount. 21:48 GMT -1 ReDeath 2020 April 19
Just simply adding more gold/other things to treasure found doesn't really make much sense and causes some problems when a DM says you get xyz treasure and you say no, X feature says I get a bonus. This is the reason why beyond starting equipment, race and class features should not give you items/gold. Besides that though, the dragon race which is used in conjunction with this class gives you a feature that helps you find treasure in Eye for Money.--Blobby383b (talk) 14:24, 19 April 2020 (MDT)
Oh, nonono. I didn't mean you get a bonus in the amount of money you get in a treasure. I meant like in the Wyrmling class, where you get a bonus in damage when you reach a specified amount of gold. I though it would be a nice feature in your Dragon class: when you get a hoard of like 1500 Gold, you get a +1 in your attacks and AC. Or maybe, because you use an increase in the critical range, you could make that the range of the critical increases when you reach certain amounts of gold.
Another thing worth to notice is the "Scales" feature. It's nice in other classes like in the Barbarian with the unarmored defense, but they still have some proficiencies in armor and can use shields, and are able to use magical items with much more ease (A dragon could only wear a hat and maybe a couple of rings if one gets creative). So I wanted to ask if you would increase the base AC, like a 12/13 + Dex + Con AC or 15 + Con/Dex, or something like that, as a dragon can't use shields and the humanoid transformation doesn't grant proficiencies. But this is just something I was curious to ask, nothing more. 15:08 GMT -1 ReDeath 2020 April 23
Having gold shouldn't make your attacks more accurate or make you harder to hit. Having a larger hoard is a sense of pride among dragons, but mechanically, it shouldn't actually do anything and it doesn't make sense for it to do anything. Besides that, classes should be compared against each other in terms of just the power of their features, so having a better unarmed AC calculation for this class than say a barbarian would be too powerful. On a side note, whether or not a class can use/pc can get a magic item is dependent on your DM and what campaign they are running too and should never factor into the balance of a race, class, ect.--Blobby383b (talk) 19:39, 23 April 2020 (MDT)
I understand. Okay then, I think you are right too: one cannot make a Class that depends too much in it’s environment. :3 ReDeath [13:19 GMT -1] 29/4/2020
You fixed it now, uh? I was going to do it myself tomorrow. I don’t know who took out the last things, but that’s pretty bad for someone to do. — ReDeath [2:51 GMT-] 6/5/2020
It is bad, unfortunately some anons are not the most of helpful, others though make helpful edits and create unique and interesting things.--Blobby383b (talk) 20:55, 5 May 2020 (MDT)
