Campaign Design - Bloodlines: Emerald Sûl-Blooded

Emerald Sûl-Blooded
(adapted from Unearthed Arcana)

As with most of the gem dragons, those descended from Elliðagrimr tend to prefer to dwell in the Færie Realms, and by inclination most are at least nominally aligned with the Unse̊ðie Court. Those who live within the Three Worlds often form working arrangements with sages, scholars, and even entire institutions of research and learning. These alliances have been known to result in offspring as the emerald dragons mix their bloodline with both fæy and mortals.

Those who bear this bloodline often share their forbears' thirst for knowledge, and frequently pursue callings that involve a life devoted to research and study. They tend to be angular and thin, with pale skin and a greenish tint to their hair. The most common, and striking, physical feature of those who bear this bloodline are deep green eyes lacking any whites.

3 If you gain sonic resistance from another source (such as from levels in the dragon shaman or sorcerer classes), this ability becomes the ability to bestow sonic 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.

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

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