Description: (PRESTIGE CLASS) It is rumored that the magical powers of sorcerers and bards are somehow connected to the presence of dragon blood in their family tree. Dragon disciples are sorcerers, and sometimes bards, who use their magical power as a catalyst to ignite their dragon blood, realizing its fullest potential. They prefer a life of exploration to a cloistered existence. Already adept at magic, many pursue adventure, especially if it furthers their goal of finding out more about their draconic heritage. They often feel drawn to areas known to harbor dragons. NWN Enhanced enables this class for all chromatic and metallic dragon colors, adding black, blue, brass, bronze, copper, gold, green, silver, and white dragon disciples. Therefore, the class name has been changed from red dragon disciple to dragon disciple. A character may only advance as one type of dragon disciple.

Tip: Becoming a Dragon DiscipleEdit

  • Only sorcerers or bards can become a dragon disciple - either class is equally suited.
  • Paladins and blackguards are well suited as candidates for a third class.
  • Any class that has a high reliance on strength should find this prestige class useful.

  • Requires Hordes of the Underdark.
  • Taking levels in this class does not increase spell slots like taking levels in the pale master class would.
  • This class is occasionally banned from some servers as the ability increases from dragon abilities are considered "overpowered".
  • Losing a dragon disciple level that grants an ability bonus can leave a character with corrupted ability scores. This can be corrected by a Dungeon Master, but not through scripting. For this reason, some servers that allow releveling without DM assistance ban this class.
