Hidecarved Dragon - Dragon Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
Hidecarved dragons are members of an enigmatic order of dragons and half-dragons. Their name comes from the markings engraved on their scales, which grant them incredible mystical protection. Dragons of the hidecarved order resemble monks in their strict discipline, dedicated to personal perfection, and mystical transcendence.
Most hidecarved dragons are true dragons, since many drakes, landwyrms, wyverns, and other creatures of the dragon type lack the thick, heavy scales necessary to receive the mystical engravings of the order. A half-dragon can become a hidecarved dragon only if its non-dragon parent had very significant natural armor, although some half-dragon/half-giants have been known to use magic to thicken their hides sufficiently to qualify for the class. Some dragons advance in other classes - commonly monk, wizard, sorcerer, or cleric - before adopting this prestige class, primarily to meet the minimum base Will save requirement.
Hidecarved dragons do not build monasteries, but they do gather in small groups called "lauths." These tiny communities of three to five dragons share a large territory and come together only occasionally but will gather quickly to help if one member of the lauth is threatened.
