Looks like a fun class to play, shows how versatile ACKS is to see this created with the same system for making "fighter/rogues". Flight and an additional breath weapon comes up very very late into the levels though, how long do your games usually go?

maybe i should drop flight (costs 5 points) and change it for a winged flight spell. so it could have other poders early on. in that fashing i could give it a growth spell to simulate "taking dragon form"

Yeah, spell-likes open up many, many possibilities for custom classes. An idea I've been playing around with for a custom class of my own is using Jump as a spell-like to represent limited flight/gliding.

Ah just got an idea for what your dragon class's end-game power could be, the Divine 5 spell "call dragon". But you fudge the rules so instead of calling a dragon you BECOME a dragon for 1 turn/level. Limited to 1/week and if you push that limit you become berserk as the disciple's human mind cannot handle the draconic instincts.
