The Jammer Hack: Dracon

 

Brief: Dracon are a cross between a Dragon and Centaur. They have an emphasis on the Herd and a lone Dracon without some form of support, whether from an actual group of Dracon, or an adopted herd amongst their adventuring companions, will either die off in some manner, or become withdrawn, sullen, and hostile to others.

Traits: Dracon: Large size. Fast speed. Darkvision.

Claws: Dracon have a natural attack that always allows them to use their armed damage instead of unarmed/improvised.

Slam (1/day): Once per day, a Dracon may make a full charge and slam a target with their heavy-sized body. Upon success, a Dracon may deal critical damage (x2) to their target.

Notes

- Chak'r 'Chaki' Laflus is a Warrior and member of the Bralian Herd located on the renowned Rock of Bral which also gives names to the crystal sphere it is located in: Bralspace. His tasks ranges from keeping the peace within the herd, to protecting the herd, and for escorting Kaba Stakahlla on day-to-day routines. Chak'r, along with several guardsmen, have earned their renown by defending the Kaba from assassination attempts made by the Shou Yakuza.

- The Herd has close ties to the Mindflayer community due to the herd's passages into Bral's underground enabling them to grow grey mushrooms. These brainy mushrooms provide nutrition (but lacking flavor) to Mindflayers who need to eat, but also do not want to suffer the wrath of Bralian justice by attempting kidnap and eat a citizen, or caught engaging in acts of purchasing slavery within the borders of the city where slavery is banned. The creation and purchasing of grey mushrooms have brought the two communities into an tentative alliance within Low City.

- Chaki's contacts also include members of the Giff community. Although the Kaba is open to negotiating with Mindflayers, Chaki prefers dealing with a more straight forward community, such as the Giff. The three communities could one day combine their efforts to become a serious influence, if not in the courts of Prince Andru, at least in the streets of Low City.
