Air BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

One of your ancestors was a creature of elemental air. Beings associated with this element come in an almost endless variety and your characteristics might vary with the type of elemental creature from which you descend. Regardless of your exact ancestry, you are likely to have blue eyes and wild, unkempt hair.

The descendants of cloud giants tend to be tall, loud, and often arrogant, but they have a strong appreciation for beauty. Characters with storm giant ancestors, on the other hand, tend toward gentleness and tolerance, but they can display violent tempers when provoked. Descendants of elemental flying creatures display a predatory nature in their movements and behavior, always preferring to keep the advantage of height and distance when dealing with others. Dust mephits produce skinny, morbid descendants; air mephits pass along their lively nature; and ice mephits lend their aloof and distant manner to posterity.

Restless and moody, sorcerers with the Air Bloodline feat often adventure just to move. They might seem apathetic at times, but they can surprise others with quick emotional displays. Such characters tend to be impatient when others want to be still, and they enjoy spending long periods of time in debate.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

BenefitEdit

Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, according to the following list. 1st—Obscuring mist 2nd—Gust of wind 3rd—Wind wall 4th—Shout 5th—Telekinesis 6th—Control winds 7th—Ethereal jaunt 8th—Summon Monster VIII (elementals and outsiders with the air subtype only) 9th—Freedom

SpecialEdit

If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class that granted him access to this feat, he gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if he learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

Characters with Air Bloodline cannot learn or cast spells with the earth descriptor, and all such spells are removed from the spell lists of all their spellcasting classes.

A character may choose only one base bloodline feat

Anarchic BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

You are descended from a chaotic outsider. The characteristics you display might depend in part on the kind of chaotic heritage you have. Regardless of your exact ancestry, you are likely to have one or more unusual physical traits, such as mismatched eyes or untamable and strangely hued hair.

The descendants of demons tend to have misshapen features and a terrible temper with a decidedly cruel streak. Eladrin descendants tend to have strong emotional reactions (especially positive emotions) and often become fervent (if short-term) supporters of a cause. Characters with slaad ancestry generally have strongly variable mood swings, and they often take on the personality traits, speech patterns, and clothing styles of those around them in a haphazard and unpredictable manner. Those with titan blood often stand head—and-shoulders above other members of their race; they enjoy experiencing the world around them and become angry when others might merely be bored.

Characters with the Anarchic Bloodline feat are nearly always chaotic-aligned. They tend to be restless, desiring change above all else. They are prone to act irrationally, based on sudden whims and flights of fancy. The adventurous life, full of excitement, danger, and travel, appeals to them. Chaos-blooded characters often have a wide variety of spells in their repertoire from all schools and for all manner of uses. They rarely focus their spells around a theme or with a specific function in mind.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

BenefitEdit

Benefit: Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, from the following list. 1st—Color spray 2nd—Tasha's hideous laughter 3rd—Rage 4th—Confusion 5th—Mind fog 6th—Mislead 7th—Prismaticspray 8th—Maze 9th—Weird

SpecialEdit

If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class to which she applies this feat, she gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if she learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

Characters with this feat cannot learn or cast spells with the lawful descriptor, and all such spells are removed from the spells lists of all their spellcasting classes.

Astral TrackingEdit

Dragon Compendium

[General

You can follow tracks across the featureless wastes of the Astral Plane. In addition, you can try to determine the destination of a creature that has used a teleport spell or effect.

PrerequisiteEdit

Track (PH) , Knowledge (the planes) 11 ranks, Spellcraft 8 ranks, Survival 10 ranks,

BenefitEdit

You can attempt to track a creature normally, even through the featureless wastes of the Astral Plane (base Survival DC 25). In addition, when standing at the location (on any plane) from which a creature departed by means of a teleportation spell or effect, you can determine its destination with a successful DC 30 Survival check. If you have your own means of teleportation, you can then teleport to that location as though you had viewed it once

Axiomatic BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

You are descended from a native of a lawful plane. The most common members of this bloodline are the spawn of devils, who sow their seed in the Material Plane as part of far-reaching and complex plots against their rivals. Archons create mixed-blood offspring with mortals in order to counter the machinations of devils and other evil outsiders. Rarely, mortal travelers who spend a significant portion of their lives in a lawfully aligned plane begin to take on some of the traits of that plane that later manifest in their descendants.

Members of this bloodline are almost exclusively lawful. They seem driven by an inner set of rules that generally work in accordance with the laws of the land. They tend to have a symmetrical appearance, dress conservatively, and stick to a regimented life. Even when adventuring, they follow their routine to the best of their ability. Creatures descended from devils tend to use rules for their benefit, manipulating the system and taking advantage of legal loopholes. Descendants of archons practice the gentler aspects of regimen, living lives in as organized a fashion as possible.

Characters with the Axiomatic Bloodline feat tend to be organized and consistent; they generally look down on abnormality or spontaneity. As such, those with lawful blood excel at spells that locate items and creatures as well as spells that return things to their proper place or shape.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

Required forEdit

Lawful Discipline (LM) ,

Dragon Compendium

NormalEdit

Only specific weapons deal double damage when readied against a charge

Celestial BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

One of your distant ancestors was a good outsider. The characteristics you display might depend in part on the kind of celestial heritage you have.

Descendants of devas or archons tend to be very decisive—quick to judge and quick to act. Characters with couatl or lillend ancestors are often physically beautiful, and they tend to favor snakes and other reptiles as familiars. The most common sources of celestial blood, however, are minor good deities or the avatars of more powerful beings. A sorcerer descended from such a line can be very passionate about his faith, whether he follows his ancestor's religion or not.

Characters with the Celestial Bloodline feat are usually good-aligned, although not always. Their yearning for adventure stems either from a desire to aid others, an innate need to combat evil, or both. As such, celestial- blooded characters tend to focus their spell selections on good- or neutral-aligned spells that aid others.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

Required forEdit

Such a transfer requires a standard action. The touched character can apply a metamagic feat to the next spell he casts as a free action. The total level cost of the metamagic feat must be less than or equal to the number of turn undead uses you expended. Unused energy lasts 1 round before it fades. All divine energy transferred in this way is completely absorbed by the touched character and has no other effects. The caster must have access to the metamagic feat as normal. He applies it to the spell while he casts it via the energy you provided. He does not need to prepare the spell with the feat.

You cannot use this ability to boost your own spellcasting talents. The spell your ally uses requires its normal casting time, making quickened spells useless with this ability

Draconic BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

You are descended from a dragon. The dragon bloodline is strong in both physical power and magic. Your characteristics might vary with the type of dragon from which you are descended, but you share some traits with others of draconic blood. Like your majestic reptilian ancestor, you are proud and of noble bearing, and you might even share its coloration in some way.

Although characters with draconic blood can have any alignment, they are prone to mimic their dragon ancestor's personalities. Others often see them as somewhat arrogant and obsessive, but the dragon- blooded usually feel justifiably proud of their abilities. Spellcasters with draconic ancestors love knowledge and beautiful items, and they often adventure to acquire one or the other. Their spell selections tend toward either flamboyant, combat-oriented spells, or knowledge- gathering spells. Sorcerers of this bloodline favor the same environments as their dragon ancestors.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

Required forEdit

Dragon Sight (DC) ,

BenefitEdit

Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, according to the following list. 1st—Comprehend languages 2nd—Darkvision 3rd—-Protectionfrom elements 4th—Fear 5th—Mindfog 6th—True seeing 7th—Vision 8th—Mind blank 9th—Dominate monster

SpecialEdit

If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class that granted him access to this feat, he gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if he learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

A character with the Draconic Bloodline feat retains many of the strengths and weaknesses of his ancestor. As such, he must choose a category of spells (often spells with a certain descriptor) that he cannot learn or cast. (For example, the descendant of a green dragon might not be able to cast spells with the earth descriptor, while the heir of a bronze dragon might be denied access to spells with the fire descriptor.) Such spells do not appear on the character's spell list for any class. The DM should be involved in the decision about which category of spells the character is denied.

A character may choose only one base bloodline feat

Dragon SightEdit

Dragon Compendium

Earth BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

You are descended from a creature of elemental earth. Your heritage probably stems from one of the humanoid-shaped beings from the Elemental Plane of Earth, although elemental earth creatures native to the Material Plane can contribute this bloodline as well. Regardless of the exact earth creature in your ancestry, you probably have a hardy, solid-looking body and dark coloration, and you might even exude an earthy smell.

Stone giants produce long, lean descendants who tend to be shy but playful. The progeny of earth mephits are generally stubborn, while those of salt mephits are often gifted with a sarcastic wit. Characters with gargoyle blood tend to be territorial and prone to violence, especially when it comes to protecting what is theirs.

Some would say that sorcerers with the Earth Bloodline feat are unchanging, but this assessment is not entirely true. Rather, they are slow to change—not to mention tough, determined, and unwavering in their goals. They generally enjoy being underground, so they like to delve into dungeons and other subterranean locales.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

Required forEdit

Friend of the Earth (DC) ,

BenefitEdit

Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, according to the following list. 1st—Enlarge person  2nd—Shatter 3rd—Keen edge 4th—Stone shape 5th—Transmute mud to rock 6th—Move earth 7th—Statue 8th—Ironbody 9th—Summon monster IX (elementals and outsiders with the earth subtype only)

SpecialEdit

If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class that granted her access to this feat, she gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if she learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells with the same elemental descriptor as your domain, At least one elemental domain (Air, Earth, Fire, or Water),

BenefitEdit

Choose one of your elemental domains: Air, Earth, Fire, or Water. You can cast spells with the related spell descriptor as if your caster level was the sum of all spellcasting classes that grant spells of that elemental spell descriptor. The effect applies only to a single elemental descriptor chosen when the feat is taken. For example, a 5th-level cleric/3rd -level wizard with the Fire domain and this feat can cast any spell with the fire descriptor as an 8th-level caster.

This does not affect your spells per day or spells known. It only increases your caster level when casting spells of the appropriate descriptor.

SpecialEdit

You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new elemental domain and spell descriptor

Enspell FamiliarEdit

A fell energy spell takes up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level

Fey BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

ne of your ancestors was a fey creature, or was raised as such. Fey sometimes take humanoid mates or capture children and raise them as their own. Fey-blooded characters vary greatly in appearance but most have some odd feature that marks them, such as a strange eye or hair color.

The heirs of dryads are often quite shy but they possess quick minds and an earthy beauty. Grig-blooded characters are mischievous and lighthearted, while those with pixie blood are prone to take their pranks too far. Characters with nixie blood are suspicious beings who tend to avoid strangers but remain fiercely loyal to places or persons they love.

Sorcerers with fey blood often have changing, fickle natures. They are quick to laugh and play tricks, but slow to forgive or forget slights. They adventure primarily out of a sense of alienation, seeking some place or group to which they can belong. They are fond of spells that deceive and manipulate emotions, such as charm person.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

Required forEdit

Fey's Fate (DC) ,

SpecialEdit

If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class that granted him access to this feat, he gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if he learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

Although folklore often associates fey creatures with the spirits of the dead, this belief could not be further from the truth—in fact, all fey are inherently bound to life. Thus, characters with the Fey Bloodline feat cannot learn or cast spells that create or control undead, and all such spells are removed from the spell lists of all their spellcasting classes.

A character may choose only one base bloodline feat

Fey's FateEdit

BenefitEdit

Fiendish BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

One of your distant ancestors was an evil outsider. The characteristics you display might depend in part on the kind of fiendish heritage you have. Many of your bloodline are dark in coloration, although great variation can exist depending on your specific ancestry. Evil outsiders such as demons and devils produce a surprisingly large number of offspring on the Material Plane. Their descendants are frequently (but not always) evil. Demon-blooded characters and others descended from beings native to the chaotic evil realms are usually chaotic themselves, and at their worst they can be prone to greedy or lustful behavior.

Those with devil blood, on the other hand, tend to be lawful. They have no compunctions about bending the rules as far as possible, but they rarely break them. Like their fiendish ancestors, devil-spawn are known for keeping their word.

Characters with fiendish blood often seem driven— even haunted—by the potential for evil within them, especially if they try to hold to a neutral or good path. They frequently adventure out of a restlessness caused by their own internal struggles, although sometimes they do so simply because they enjoy killing and adventuring provides a perfect outlet for that tendency. Such characters usually prefer spells of darkness and deception, even if they are good-aligned.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

BenefitEdit

Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, according to the following list. 1st—Protection from good 2nd—Darkness 3rd—Sepia snake sigil 4th—Bestow curse 5th—Nightmare 6th—Mislead 7th—Insanity 8th—Maze 9th—Imprisonment

SpecialEdit

If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class that granted her access to this feat, she gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if she learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

Characters with this feat cannot learn or cast spells withthe good descriptor, and all such spells are removed from the spell lists of all their spellcasting classes.

A character may choose only one base bloodline feat

Fire BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

One ofyour ancestors was a creature of elemental fire. Your physical characteristics might vary with the type of elemental creature from which you are descended, but you're likely to have wild red or coal-black hair and either smoky gray or golden eyes. Your heritage probably stems from one of the humanoid-shaped beings from the Elemental Plane of Fire, although elemental fire creatures native to the Material Plane can contribute this bloodline as well.

The descendants of azers see fire as a tool, and they love crafts that control the power of flame. They tend to prefer a regimented life and usually keep their destructive natures in tight check, although they are no less dangerous because of that forbearance. The descendants of fire mephits have a mischievous nature and enjoy destructive pranks, while characters with steam mephits in their ancestry consider themselves above such behavior and often look down on others with considerable arrogance. Fire giant spawn can be ruthless in achieving their goals, and even others with fire blood see them as brutal. None, however, can be as cruel as the descendants of salamanders.

Usually hot-tempered and unpredictable, characters with the Fire Bloodline feat can also be passionate, egotistical, and unusually prone to destructive behavior. They usually adventure for a chance at personal gain and glory. Fire holds a primal fascination and fear for most creatures, and scions of this bloodline use that to their advantage, often choosing mind-affecting spells to supplement their preferred destructive flame spells.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

BenefitEdit

Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, according to the following list. 1st—Hypnotism 2nd—Pyrotechnics 3rd—Tongues* 4th—Fire shield 5th—Cloudkill** 6th—Summon monster VI (elementals and outsiders with the fire subtype only) 7th—Delayed blast fireball 8th—Sunburst 9th—Meteor swarm *The subject's tongue resembles a tongue of flame. **The fog produced has a smoky smell and quality.

SpecialEdit

If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class that granted him access to this feat, he gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if he learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

Characters with this feat cannot learn or cast spells with the water descriptor, and all such spells are removed from the spell lists of all their spellcasting classes.

Flash CastingEdit

Dragon Compendium

[General

Your passion for magic manifests visibly when you cast a spell.

PrerequisiteEdit

CHA 13, Ability to cast a spell with the fire or light descriptor,

BenefitEdit

A fiery nimbus surrounds you whenever you cast a spell with the fire or light descriptor. This makes it almost impossible to hide while spellcasting, but it makes you difficult to look at as well.

Guided SpellEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Metamagic

Your spells zero in on a specific target.

PrerequisiteEdit

BenefitEdit

Only those spells delivered by a ranged touch attack can be guided. Choose a target within range before casting a guided spell. A guided spell ignores anything up to total cover and full concealment as it moves over, under, or around barriers, seeking that target. You do not check for miss chance due to concealment, and your foe does not gain an AC bonus due to cover. If a guided spell misses on its initial attack, it persists for a number of rounds equal to 1/3 your level (rounded down), making another ranged touch attack on your turn each round against that target until it hits or the guided duration ends. If the target or you move out of the range of the spell, if the target gains total cover or concealment from your position, or if the line of effect for the spell is blocked, the guided spell immediately ends. You do not need to concentrate on a guided spell while it is attacking. A guided spell uses up a spell slot three levels higher than the spell's actual level

Although the haft does not possess any of the bonuses associated with the weapon (such as flaming), it does count as magic for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction if the weapon is enchanted. When using this feat, each attack you make in that round (the extra one and the normal ones) suffers a -2 penalty. You only receive half your Strength bonus on damage rolls with this attack. This feat cannot be used with a double weapon.

Necromantic BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

One of your ancestors was an undead creature or possessed an unholy link with the undead brought on by frequent contact. While undead do not reproduce by normal means, their infectious taint might affect necromancers and others who deal regularly with the dead or undead. In rare instances a vampire or other undead might feed off a pregnant humanoid and in allowing her to five endow the unborn child with its foul nature.

Your physical characteristics might vary depending on the type ofundead creature from which you are descended, but you're likely to have pale or ashen skin and dark eyes and hair. The touch of undeath in a family almost exclusively comes from intelligent, corporeal undead. It takes powerful magic or extremely bizarre situations for creatures to gain this feat from unintelligent or incorporeal undead. The descendants of ghouls tend to be feral and constantly hungry. Those with ghast ancestors generally have a strong, unpleasant stench, and they often find it difficult to satiate their hunger. Lich-blooded characters value intelligence and generally have elitist personalities, often appearing gaunt and skeletal. Characters descended from mummies tend to have dull but focused personalities, and many have gaunt, dry skin. Descendants of vampires tend to have long canine teeth and commanding, seductive personalities. Wight-blooded characters tend to have clawlike fingernails and toenails, and lean, muscular bodies; they are generally hate-filled loners who hold grudges. Characters with the Necromantic Bloodline feat often favor wearing the blacks, whites, and grays of mourning.

Sorcerers with a touch of the undead in their family trees tend to concentrate, appropriately enough, on spells from the school of necromancy. Spells that allow the caster to control a creature's mind are popular among those descended from vampires.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

BenefitEdit

Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, from the following list. 1st—Causefear 2nd—Ghoul touch 3rd—Vampiric touch 4th—Contagion 5th—Dominate person 6th—Eyebite 7th—Control undead 8th—Trap the soul 9th—Wail of the banshee

SpecialEdit

If a character takes this feat any time after 1st level and has already learned any of the spells on this list in the class to which she applies this feat, she gains no additional spells known at those spell levels. This restriction does not apply if she learned any of these spells as a member of another spellcasting class.

Characters with this feat cannot learn or cast spells of the conjuration (healing) subschool, and all such spells are removed from the spell lists of all their spellcasting classes.

A character may choose only one base bloodline feat

Penumbra BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

You are descended from a planar traveler who frequented the Ethereal Plane or Plane of Shadow. The energies of these planes altered and augmented your ancestor, infusing your bloodline with a trace of shadow or ether. You are touched by the planes, and they grant you arcane powers that continue to shape your life.

Penumbra-blooded creatures tend toward extremes in coloration, with either unusually dark or fair skin, black or stark white hair, and silver or black irises.

Plant BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

One of your ancestors had an unusually close tie to the natural world. Possibly the rarest of ancestries, only the most powerful Spellcasters or deities can cause the melding of plants and animals.

Plant-blooded creatures tend to have brown skin and green eyes, and they generally act more patiently and quietly than their peers. Scions of flowering plants are often beautiful and vain, in love with bright colors and prone to extravagance. Those who descend from vines have long thin bodies with tangled masses of hair and combative dispositions. Fungal descendants tend toward pale skin and hair tones, preferring sedentary lives and dark, cool places. Tree-blooded creatures stand taller than their peers and have quiet but friendly personalities, content with deep thoughts and slow actions.

PrerequisiteEdit

CHA 13, Divine Favor, Patron Deity,

BenefitEdit

You gain a +1 luck bonus on Listen, Search, Sense Motive, and Spot checks.

Serpent BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

One of your ancestors served as a slave of the yuan- ti. Over the course of years, the constant exposure to serpentine magic and blood warped your ancestor, putting just a trace of snake blood into your family line. Your physical characteristics might vary with the type of snake from which you are descended, hut you're likely to have yellow or black eyes and patches of scaly skin.

Viper-blooded characters tend to have sharp, angular features with narrow jaws; they generally speak quickly and have a sharp wit. Descendants of cobras tend to have wide, thick necks and hair that grows out from the sides of their heads; they generally prefer solitude, but when in the company of others they possess a commanding presence. Creatures with a constrictor ancestor often have strong, thick bodies and limbs; they tend to take their time, even in dangerous situations, but they become an unstoppable force once they finally decide to act. Rattler-blooded characters tend to have a tough, worldly look; they like to dress in bright colors, especially reds and yellows, and are usually quite vocal about their abilities and intent.

Sorcerers with serpentine blood prefer spells that intimidate a foe or end a fight quickly.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

BenefitEdit

Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, from the following list. 1st—Causefear 2nd—Hypnotic pattern 3rd—Sepia snake sigil 4th—Phantasmal Killer 5th—Dominate person 6th—Repulsion 7th—Power word blind 8th—Power word stun 9th—Power word kill

Characters with this feat cannot learn or cast spells intended to allow them to leave the ground (such as fly, levitate, or overlandflight),and all such spells are removed from the spell lists of all their spellcasting classes.

A character may choose only one base bloodline feat

Dragon Compendium

[Metamagic

You can add such a powerful dose of necromantic energy to your mind-affecting spells that they function against undead creatures but are useless against all others.

PrerequisiteEdit

BenefitEdit

A mind-affecting spell modified by this feat works normally against intelligent undead creatures. Mindless undead (those without Intelligence scores) are still immune to its effect, and the altered spell has no effect against living creatures or constructs. A song of the dead spell takes up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level. Note that the use of this feat does not make mind-affecting spells affect undead if the spell's description specifies that the target must be living or of a particular creature type (other than undead).

Water BloodlineEdit

Dragon Compendium

[Bloodline

You have a creature of elemental water as an ancestor. Your physical characteristics might vary with the type of elemental creature from which you are descended, but you're likely to have blue, green, or white coloration. Water blood stems both from planar elemental beings and creatures native to the Material Plane that have a strong affinity for water.

Triton spawn often seem well meaning but distant. Characters who can trace their water heritage directly to a being from the Elemental Plane of Water, however, can seem downright cold to others.

Water-blooded characters adventure for a number of reasons, but they all seem driven to go forward, go deeper, and overcome any obstacles in their paths. Some deep-seated instinct teaches them to be aware of what's going on around them, since death can come from any direction underwater. Since fluids are so adaptable, characters with this bloodline are fond of spells that deal with change.

PrerequisiteEdit

Ability to cast arcane spells without preparation,

BenefitEdit

Your ancestry gives you a bonus spell known at each spell level, starting at 1st, according to the following list. 1st—Expeditious retreat 2nd—Fog cloud 3rd—Waterbreathing 4th—Quench 5th—Transmute rock to mud 6th—Otiluke'sfreezing sphere 7th—Control weather 8th—Summon monster VIII (elementals and outsiders with the water subtype) 9th—Elemental swarm (water elementals only)
