Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Arcane Sûl-Blooded

Arcane Sûl-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

The descendants of Gáldorléoð are the most reclusive and paranoid of all dragon-kind. As a result, despite their innate polymorph ability, individuals with the arcane dragon bloodline are exceedingly rare, with the number of known examples capable of being counted on one hand. Those few individuals known to have this bloodline have all been masters of arcane magic, although frequently disagreeable and difficult as well. Despite a general lack of evidence for this conclusion, almost every notable wizard or sorcerer is rumored to bear the blood of an arcane sûl in his heritage.

1 You gain the indicated bonus on all Bluff, Diplomacy, Gather Information, Intimidate, and Perform checks made to interact with arcane dragons and other creatures descended from arcane dragons, including others with this bloodline.
2 If you gain cold resistance from another source (such as from levels in the dragon shaman or sorcerer classes), this ability becomes the ability to bestow cold resistance of the indicated strength upon your allies within 30 feet. This ability requires a swift action to use, lasts for one round for each of your character levels, and is usable once per day.
3 If you can cast arcane spells, you can "store" a number of levels of arcane spell potential equal to your Charisma or Intelligence bonus (whichever you use as your primary casting statistic). If you have levels in multiple arcane spellcasting classes, you may pick which ability score you wish to tie to this ability. This choice cannot be changed later. You can use stored spell energy to cast any spell you know without expending a spell slot. The only restriction is that the levels of spell energy stored in the horn must be equal to or greater than the level of the spell you want to cast. Expended spell levels are regenerated at a rate of one level per day.

Favored Class: Sûl-Blooded individuals can replace their racial favored class with the Sorcerer class. Arcane Sûl-Blooded sorcerers must take the Sûlic sorcerous bloodline and select arcane dragon as their dragon type.

Exclusive Class: Sûl-Blooded individuals must replace their racial exclusive class with the Dragon Shaman class. An Arcane Sûl-Blooded dragon shaman must choose the Arcane Sûl Totem.
