It is rumored that the magical powers of sorcerers and bards are somehow connected to the presence of dragon blood in their family tree. While true dragons are rare in Wilwarin, there are many who brought into the realm by the rift that carry draconic blood. While this remains latent in the vast majority of cases, some dragon-blooded people are sorcerers and sometimes bards. A dragon disciple is someone who uses their magical power as a catalyst to ignite their red dragon blood, realizing its fullest potential. This can happen in two ways. The first is accidental catalyzation. In this case, the dragon disciple unintentionally activates a change in their blood. The second method is intentional out-coming. With this method, the arcanist activates their own blood through a magical process.
The Apotheosis: As a dragon disciple gains in level, they begin to show more and more draconic traits. This process is called Draconic Apotheosis. Slowly, their senses get sharper (especially their sense of smell), while at the same time, their visage becomes more reptilian. Hardened scales form on their body, and their eyes will become vertical slits. Their muscles will increase dramatically in strength, and the draconic blood will increase their general cognitive abilities. Wings will eventually sprout from their backs. These wings cannot be used for flight, or to effectively slow a fall. In the final stage of the change, the dragon disciple becomes a half-dragon. Some continue the process, becoming more and more draconic...and less and less human or demihuman. While their mannerisms may be more draconic (see below), they are still humanoid. A half-dragon gains some semblance of longevity from their blood. This results in (roughly): a double life span for humans, halfling, half-orcs, and half-elves; half a life extension for dwarves and gnomes. Elves show no increase or decrease in lifespan.
Mannerisms: Half-Dragons of all colors exist in Wilwarin. There are a variety of mannerisms that seem to apply to most.
Half-Dragon Species traits:
Other draconic species can be considered on a case by case basis. These new species will be added to the list above.

Once a character attains Level 9 of RDD, they MUST include 9 levels of RDD in any further build. This can be voided by DM permission following RP to remove the draconic heritage. If the heritage is removed, it can NEVER be re-acquired.
Once a character attains Level 10 of RDD, they MUST include 10 levels of RDD in any further build. This can be voided by DM permission following RP to remove the draconic heritage. If the heritage is removed, it can NEVER be re-acquired.
At level 9 of RDD, a character automatically learns Draconic as a base (racial) language.

Since RDD can also multiclass with palemaster, there exists the possibility of a Half-Dracolich.
Half-Dracolich: In some rare cases, a Dragon Disciple will pursue immortality through necromantic means. Rumored to exist are lost tomes that detail the process to bend draconic blood into lichdom. A Half-Dracolich will tend to look deep into the future. They tend to become aloof to most mortal matters, caring only for accumulation of wealth, and the pursuit of furthering their existence. Previous draconic breed tendencies still apply.
