Circle of Dragons (Variant)[edit]

Just an altered version of Circle of Dragons with a bit of the Circle of Reptiles mixed in after Circle of Dragons seemed to resemble a Druid with Draconic Sorcery too much. While I left a couple things as they were, I thought these modifications sat well with the idea of a Druid and their connection with nature/natural life as it was meant to be.

Draconic Telepathy[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you gain the ability to telepathically communicate with any Kobold within a range of 60 feet that you can see or whose location you are aware of. This behaves similarly to the Message cantrip, except they may respond to you telepathically as well and the connection only lasts 6 seconds after each message you send unless you concentrate on it. You do not have to point your finger as that would be awkward.

Starting at 6th level, this ability can be used on Dragonborn and on all Dragons at 10th level. At 14th level, you are capable of sensing all Kobold, Dragonborn, and Dragons that are in 120feet from you can do this your charisma per short or long reast you can telepathically communicate with them even if you can see them the range is 60feet of you and 300feet at 18th level . At 18th level, the distance of both communication and sensing is increased to 300 feet.

Draconic Forms[edit]

When you choose this circle at 2nd level, you gain the ability to use Wild Shape on your turn as a bonus action, rather than as an action.

The rites of your circle grant you the ability to transform into more dangerous forms. Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Wild Shape to transform into a dragon with a challenge rating as high as 1/4. If the dragon you transform into has a swimming or fly speed, you can ignore the level limitation. If you use Wild Shape to transform into a beast, you must follow the Max CR value listed on the Beast Shapes table.

Starting at 4th level, you can transform into a dragon with a challenge rating as high as 1 (you ignore the Max CR column of the Beast Shapes table). At level 6, you can transform into a dragon with a challenge rating as high as your level divided by 3, rounded down.

Draconic Instincts[edit]

Starting at 6th level, you gain proficiency in all Intelligence checks related to recalling information about dragons, and all Wisdom (Survival) checks related to tracking dragons. If you already have proficiency in these skills, you gain double proficiency under these circumstances.

In addition, your attacks in a dragon form count as magical for the purposes of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage.

Draconic Tuning[edit]

At 10th level, you learn to use your wild shape in more precise methods. Channeling your connection beyond the restrictions of a total transformation, you sacrifice one use of your wild shape to more finely manifest a pair of dragon wings from your back in your base form. If you do not already have one or it is not reptilian in nature, you also grow a tail equal to your height divided by 2 rounded down. These wings grant you a flying speed equal to your walking speed. This state retains the duration of a normal Wild Shape until level 14, at which time they last until you dismiss them. At level 18, they can be manifested and dismissed at will.

Note: While it shouldn't be necessary to state, you cannot manifest these wings/tail while you are wearing any restrictive garments that would block them.

Draconic Mastery[edit]

Starting at 14th level, you have completely mastered your ability to wild shape into dragons. You can expend two uses of your wild shape at the same time to transform into a Dragon with a challenge rating of 10 or lower. The duration of this transformation is a number of hours equal to your druid level divided by 4 rounded down.

Starting at level 17, you can use two uses of Wild Shape to take the form of any Adult Dragon. The duration of this transformatin is 5hours at this level.

Draconic Legacy[edit]

You gain this feature at level 20. Having dedicated your life to the ways of the Circle of Dragons, you gain a portion of the dragon's famed lifespan in your base form. For every 20 years, you only age 1.
