Dragonslayer, 2nd Variant (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Dragonslayer (Fairy Tail Version)
Dragons, the ultimate masters of the elemental power that courses through the world. Only a select few individuals are ever chosen to learn their power, and they have become known as Dragonslayers. Powerful mages who wield the primal forces of nature as an extension of their own bodies.
Making a Dragonslayer (Fairy Tail Version)
Dragon Slayers are a unique type of people who utilize a form of Lost Magic. Each Dragon Slayer has their own form of Magic, just like each Dragon is a master of their own element. In addition, the said Dragon Slayer also has the ability to eat their own element. Doing so rejuvenates them and enhances their abilities. Dragon Slayers are known to possess keener senses than that of normal humans such as in smell, sight and hearing
Abilities: The magic and fighting style wielded by a Dragonslayer is very complex, requiring high Dexterity and Wisdom to work the most effectively. Constitution, Strength, and Charisma are each equally important and will vary between Dragonslayers. Intellegence has little to no real bearing on a Dragonslayer's fighting style as their power is purely elemental in nature, it's really just a bonus to have.
Races: Any race capable of magic and on good standing with Dragons is capable of becoming a Dragonslayer. Dragonic races will do exceedingly well due to their close relations.
Alignment: The alignment of a Dragonslayer will tend to be based on that of the Dragons who raised them, but can be anything.

Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
The Dragonslayer starts out with an Animal companion.
All of the following are class features of the Dragonslayer.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Dragonslayers are masters of unarmed combat, preferring martial fighting to weapons. As such they have the Improved Unarmed Feat at 1st level and do an additional 1 HD of damage when not using a weapon. While not requiring additional weapons, each Dragonslayer has the choice of being proficient in one other weapon type of their choice. In the case of armor, a Dragonslayer can only use Light or Simple armor as anything heavier will disrupt their fighting.
Spells Each Dragonslayer can cast spells linked to their elements as well as cast from two domains.
Sphere Each Dragonslayer also gains access to a sphere of their choice that is linked to their element. Basic Sphere access grants one use of a spell within that sphere, advanced gives you three uses of spells within that sphere and expert access gives you 5 uses of spells within that sphere. you also gain another use per wisdom modifier, however basic sphere access limits you to 3 uses regardless of wisdom modifier, advanced 6 uses, expert 10 uses.
Elemental Mastery: What separates a Dragonslayer from other spellcasters is their total devotion to a single element to the near exclusion of the others. This has allowed them total control and synchronization with their chosen element, making their bodies living conduits for the primal forces of nature. Their element is determined by the Dragon's who have trained them and grows to completely define the character as whole, changing their appearance, personality, and in some cases the way they live. There are 10 different varieties of Dragonslayers: Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Ice, Lightning, Metal, Poison, Light, and Dark. Each could be considered a class all their own and are fully listed below.

They've inherited the Fire Dragon's love of gold and treasure, and as they progress will begin to give a warm glow (+1 per 1/2 lvl resist Cold). They are a fighting class through and through, and due to their association with the Reds have become friends with Githyanki and whatever that brings.

Dual Element: Dragonslayer are able to devour multiple elements. You can absorb any element shown above and you get its perks from both elements. For light and dark you must get it from someone who uses that element. For light you get it from a paladin and dark you get from a Necromancer. You may only have two elements at a time. This ability as long as the player wish. They can enter this form a number of times per day equal to their Wisdom Mod. The Dragonslayer can maintain this form for their 2xWisdom Mod rounds. You are unable to eat earth and water unless a magic user uses that element for attacks. The damage you take in this state is double but you are now able to do a reflex save to dodge attacks but you may only dodge 2 per battle.
Devour Element: Dragonslayers are masters of their element, and due to their close affinity for it they are able to absorb it into themselves to heal or strengthen themselves. A Dragonslayer has the ability to consume their elemental type, whether from a magical source or not it doesn't matter. Doing this will heal the Dragonslayer proportionally to the amount consumed. Small: 5d6 hp, Medium: 10d6 hp, Large: 15d6 hp, Huge+: Full Heal. Magical sources will also replenish the Dragonslayers uses of their dragon form in equivalence to the strength of the spell. The absorption is completely independent of the Dragonslayers level, but overconsumption may possibly harm them.
- In the case of Light and Dark Dragonslayers, their element doesn't appear naturally and their only source comes from 2 places: Divine/Necrotic spell, and the actual life force of living creatures. They have the ability to drain the energy of others they come in contact with if they succeed in a touch attack upon success the target makes a Fortitude save, draining an amount equal to the targets Constitution. These are inherently Evil acts and will push the character towards that side of the spectrum and whatever consequences that brings. This energy can also heal others, pushing towards the Good. There is the potential for a Light Dragonslayer to turn to Dark and Vice Versa.
Draconic Bloodline: For all purposes pertaining to it, the character now has a Draconic heritage. The character also gains Draconic Rage Alternate:The rage of a furious dragon lays inside you Prerequisite: Dragonslayer Alternate Conditions for use (for a Chaotic Good Dragonslayer): Ally death in battle or faced with allies or friends killer. Multiple members of the Party are rendered unable to fight. When faced against a Hostile Dragon or Dragonslayer. This effect can only be used once a day when conditions are met unless the Dragonslayer is able to consume a substantial amount of their element in which case they are granted another use however the normal conditions still need to be met. Benefit: You may, for 1d4+1 for every 5 character levels, rounds enter a state of uncontrollable rage. Your weapon (if any) is discarded for the duration, and instead you must make attacks with natural weapons. Your range is touch, unless otherwise specified. You receive +2 for every 2nd character lvl to your attack bonus to a max of +8, and +3 for every 2nd character to your damage per attack to a max of + 9, with each attack accounting for half a standard action. The first attack of each round will have the effects of your breath weapon at half damage, opponents may make saving throws against this to receive half damage. Your critical during your rage is 16-20, at double damage. For these attacks you always use your highest attack bonus. Instead of making multiple attacks in one round, you may make one single attack. Making one single attack per 6 base attack bonus and allows you to deal extra 2d6 damage for every 2nd level (to a max of 5d6)+ half your breath weapon damage. If you make one single attack you get a minus to your attack bonus equal to double of -2 for every 2nd character lvl to max of -16 , and +6 damage for every second character lvl to a max of +18. doing this ends your rage immediately, forcing you to make a Fort check to avoid exhaustion which makes you unable to attack and cutting your speed to ¼ of normal. After your rage ends, you must succeed in a Fort check to avoid exhaustion which makes you unable to attack and cutting your speed to ¼ of normal for 1d4 rounds. The DC for this is 17 + ½ your character lvl even if you succeed you must make a will save after the rounds are over of 15+½ your character lvl or lose your ability to use any elemental bonuses or elemental spells for 1d6 rounds Consuming your element however reduces this duration as follows, Small amount -1 rounds, medium amount -2 rounds, large amount -4 rounds, Huge amount complete recovery and able to reuse a standard and a move action that may have been used that round. Their breath weapon becomes that of their chosen element and deals 1d4 per odd character lvl 1,3,5 etc and is a 15ft cone there is reflex dc that can half this damage of 10+ character lvl + wisdom bonus.

Dragonslayers in the World
|“||Now that I've eaten I'm all fired up!||”|
|—Natsu Dragneel, Human Fire Dragonslayer|
Dragonslayers fit in almost anywhere in a world. Dragonslayers come in as much a variety as pairs of pants do to a nobleman. Most normal people only know of the destruction that comes in the wake of a Dragonslayer fighting in their town.
Daily Life: Dragonslayers go about their daily lives doing whatever they feel like. They are pretty much like any normal character or npc in the fact that they do what they wish. They have no real objective to fill at any point unless given a quest.
Notables: Natsu Dragneel is fire Dragonslayer of the Fairy Tale guild, pretty much known as Salamander and known for setting towns on fire while fighting. Another notable Dragonslayer is Gajeel Redfox, a Metal Dragonslayer, who has been known to get into fights with Natsu as well as help him from time to time.
Organizations: Dragonslayers are often found in guilds or groups with other Dragonslayers or other mages. They are known to hang around with lots of magical using classes that can be very explosive in their arguments.
NPC Reactions: A common NPC will not believe when a Dragonslayer tells them that they were raised by a dragon, unless they are of a race that shows their draconic blood. Once the abilities of the Dragonslayer are shown, most NPCs will distinguish that person as a Dragonslayer and ask every once in a while about how they were raised by a dragon.
Characters with ranks in Knowledge (Arcana) can research Dragonslayers to learn more about them. When a character makes a skill check, read or paraphrase the following, including information from lower DCs.
|5||Dragonslayers harness the power of a dragon in combat.|
|10||Dragonslayers are attuned to one element, and are rumored to be unaffected by that element.|
|15||Dragonslayers can consume the element with which they are aligned, no matter the source. If they consume that element, it will heal them. its said a dragonslayer in they're natural element could fight endlessly.|
|20||Dragonslayer magic is taught to humans by dragons themselves to defend against dragons that would end or enslave the human species. All dragonslayer magic has the ability to bypass dragons magic resistance.|
Dragonslayers in the Game
As was previously stated, Dragonslayers are often around other magical classes while in the world. Whether PC or NPC, the Dragonslayers will do whatever they please unless given a quest to do. Once a quest has been given, the Dragonslayers will try their hardest to get it done in any way possible.
Sample Encounter: The party encounters a trail of fire leading from the town they just entered out across the plains. The town being devastated by the previous happenings, the mayor begs the group to follow the trail. Following the trail, they are lead to another town where the fire stops at the edge of town.
