Draconic Companion

A draconic companion’s abilities are determined by the dracontine electus’s level and by the choices made using its evolution pool. Table: Draconic Companion Base Statistics determines many of the base statistics of the draconic companion. Each draconic companion possesses a base form that modifies these base statistics. Draconic companions are dragons for the purpose of determining which spells affect them. A draconic companion’s qualities are similar to those described in the Eidolons description block of the Advanced Player’s Guide, but with the following changes.

Skills: The following skills are class skills for draconic companions: Appraise, Bluff, Climb, Craft, Diplomacy, Fly, Heal, Intimidate, Knowledge (all), Linguistics, Perception, Sense Motive, Spellcraft, Stealth, Survival, Swim, and Use Magic Device.

Natural Armor Bonus: The number noted here is the draconic companion’s base total natural armor bonus. This bonus may not be split between an armor bonus and a natural armor bonus. This number is modified by the draconic companion’s base form and some options available through its evolution pool. A draconic companion can wear armor, but with the restrictions described of any kind, as the armor interferes with the summoner’s connection to the draconic companion.

Int/Cha: Add this modifier to the draconic companion’s Intelligence and Charisma scores. Some options available through evolutions might modify these scores.

Special: This includes a number of abilities gained by all draconic companions as they increase in power. Each of these bonuses is described below.

Draconic Senses: Draconic companion have darkvision 60 feet and low-light vision.

Dragon Qualities: Draconic companions gain a number of dragon-like qualities, as described below.

Link (Ex): Draconic companions and its dracontine electus share a mental link allows for communication across any distance (as long as they are on the same plane). This communication is a free action, allowing the dracontine electus to give orders to his draconic companion at any time.

Share Spells (Ex): The dracontine electus may cast a spell with a target of “you” on her draconic companion (as a spell with a range of touch) instead of on herself. A dracontine electus may cast spells on her draconic companion even if the spells normally do not affect creatures of the draconic companion’s type (outsider). Spells cast in this way must come from the sorcerer/wizard spell list. This ability does not allow the draconic companion to share abilities that are not spells, even if they function like spells.

Unfettered: Draconic companions can only wear armor designed expressly for draconic bodies, and even then chafe at the restrictions armor can cause to their natural movements. Draconic companion increase the armor check penalty of any worn armor by 2, and suffer a -2 penalty
