Appearantly it's required to have some sort of "I wanna be a Dragon!" class in all fantasy rulesets derivied from Dungeons and Dragons. It just is. Even though Dragons have a long history of getting spanked by dragon-slayers weighing about an 80th as much as they do and weilding swords and lances instead of a proper bio-flamethrower. Still, there is something to be said for a steady supply of maidens being offered up and who doesn't like a bit of extremely rare beef or mutton plucked right off the pasture?
So, Way of the Sword took its turn at this ineveitable archetype with the third prestige class in the book. The reliance on spell casting made me want to barf, especially as it was almost entirely unrelated to what the class did (it was used in one fairly wank ability to extend your berserker rage by burning spellspell/spell slots). So, we're gonna pretend that didn't happen, and focus on what was cool about the class: tying dragon-ness to being in a rage. That's workable. Pull out the big pot, cause it's time to cook!
(Since I'm thinking about using the FCDB to populate an expanded version of the Sunchaser setting, Its worthwhile to find the new toys a home. The Goblins of the Black Peaks are practically begging for a set of advantages like this (eat a drake, gain his might!), and I can see the chain doing a fine job of enpowering the Orc equivalent of a paladin from the Kaia Jungles, though probably NOT favoring fire. More likely sonic for them, and the power gained by infernal pact rather than dragon blood.)
UNARMED COMBAT FEATS
Perhaps the blood of dragons flows in you veinsÖ or maybe just their rage!
Prerequisites: Rage Basics
Benefit: Chose one of the following damage types: acid, cold, electrical, fire, force, sonic, or stress. While in berserk stance, you gain thick hide 4 and Resistance to the chosen damage type equal to the number of unarmed Combat feats you have.
Your ire bursts from within to consume your foes!
Prerequisites: Dragonrage Basics
Benefit: While in berserk stance, you gain a breath weapon: once per round as a full action you may exhale in a 20-ft.line, inflicting 2d6 + your Con modifier in the damage type chosen as part of your Dragonrage Basics feat. Make a single ranged attack against all characters and objects in the path; each character hit may make a Reflex save (DC 10 + the number of species feats you have + your Con modifier) to suffer only one-half damage (round down).
Special: You may ignore the Drake prerequisite of the Greater Breath feat. If you gain another breath weapon with the same damage type from any source, you may choose a new damage type for this attack from the list in Dragonrage Basics.
The fury of dragons transforms you into a rampaging beast!
Prerequisites: Dragonrage Mastery
Benefit: While in berserk stance you lose the Folk type if you have it and gain the Beast type if you do not have it already. You also gain a Claw I, Bite I, Slam I and Tail Slap I natural attack. If you already possess any of these natural attacks, the grade of the existing attack increases by 1 instead of gaining an additional copy of the attack (to a maximum of grade V).
