Draconic Origin Spells

3rd-Level Draconic Feature

You gain origin spells at the sorcerer levels listed in the Dragon Ancestor Damage Type and Spells table. See the Sorcerer Subclass class feature for how these spells work.

Note that one of the spells you gain at each listed sorcerer level is determined by the type of dragon you select as your ancestor (see Dragon Ancestor).

Draconic Resilience

3rd-Level Draconic Feature

As magic flows through your body, it causes physical traits of your dragon ancestors to emerge. Your hit point maximum increases immediately by 1 and by an additional 1 when you gain a level of sorcerer.

In addition, parts of your skin are covered by a thin sheen of dragon-like scales. When you aren’t wearing armor, your AC equals 13 + your DEX modifier.

Dragon Ancestor

3rd-Level Draconic Feature

You begin to manifest traits of the type of dragon that instilled you with power. Choose that dragon’s type now. This choice also dictates some of your spells gained with your Draconic Origin Spells feature, and the damage type associated with each dragon is used by additional features you gain later.

You can now speak, read, and write Draconic. In addition, when you make an ability check when interacting with or recalling information about dragons, treat any d20 roll less than your sorcerer level as if you rolled a number equal to your sorcerer level.

Elemental Affinity

7th-Level Draconic Feature

When you cast a spell that deals damage of the type associated with your draconic ancestry (including spells with a damage type modified by features such as your Flexible Spell metamagic option), you can spend 1 sorcery point to gain one of the following benefits:

  • Each target takes additional damage equal to your PB.
  • You gain resistance to that damage type for 1 minute.

Imperious Wings

11th-Level Draconic Feature

You gain the ability to sprout a pair of dragon wings from your back, gaining a fly speed equal to your walking speed. You can create these wings as a bonus action on your turn, and they last until you dismiss them (also as a bonus action on your turn). While the wings are manifested, creatures that can see you have disadvantage on checks and saves to avoid being frightened or intimidated by you.

You can’t manifest your wings while wearing armor.

Draconian Vengeance

15th-Level Draconic Feature

As an action, you can target one creature within 60 feet of you that you can see to brand it with your draconic element. The target must succeed on a CHA save against your spell save DC or become vulnerable to the damage type associated with your draconic ancestry until the end of your next turn. A target resistant to that damage type loses that resistance for the duration, but a target immune to the damage type is still immune to it, even if the target fails the save.

Once used, you can’t use this feature again until you finish a long rest, unless you spend 4 sorcery points to do so.
