Gold Dragon Class

Golden scales cover the body of this majestic dragon, and a regal crest of horns arches backward above wise and piercing eyes.
Gold dragons are the epitome of virtue. Other metallic dragons revere their gold cousins as the agents of divine forces and the paragons of dragon kind, and often seek them for advice or aid.

Alignment: Normally Lawful Good

Hit Die: d12.

Class Features

All of the following are class features of the Gold Dragon

Speed 60 ft., swim 60 ft.

Change Shape (Su)

A very young or older gold dragon can assume any animal or humanoid form three times per day as if using polymorph.

Detect Gems (Sp)

A young or older gold dragon can detect gems three times per day. This functions as locate object, but can only be used to locate gemstones.

Fast Flight (Ex)

A young or older gold dragon is treated as one size category larger when determining his fly speed.

Luck (Sp)

Once per day an adult or older gold dragon can touch a gem, usually one embedded in the dragon’s hide and enspell it to bring good luck. As long as the dragon carries the gem, it and every good creature within a given radius of it (10 ft. per age category) receives a +1 luck bonus on all saving throws. If the dragon gives an enspelled gem to another creature, only that bearer gets the bonus. The effect lasts 1d3 hours plus 3 hours per age category of the dragon. This ability is the equivalent of a 2nd-level spell.

Spell-like Abilities (Sp)

A gold dragon gains the following spell-like abilities upon reaching the listed age category. Its caster level for these effects is equal to its Hit Dice, and any save DCs are Charisma-based. A gold dragon can use these abilities at will. Very young—detect evil; Juvenile—bless; Adult—daylight; Old— geas/quest; Ancient—sunburst; Great wyrm—foresight.

Weakening Breath (Su)

Instead of a cone of fire, a gold dragon can breathe a cone of weakening gas. Creatures within the cone must succeed on a Fortitude save or take 1 point of Strength damage per age category (Will save half).
