Dragonmarked Feats

You carry an elaborate marking on your skin—a swirling, twining pattern of colors. This dragonmark grants you innate magical abilities and signal that your life is significant within the Draconic Prophecy of Argonessen. Choose one dragonmarked aspect below, for which you meet racial requirements. You gain the benefits described for that dragonmark. If you gain the ability to cast spells, choose either Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma to be your magic ability for spells granted by your dragonmark. The DC to resist one of your spells equals 8 + your magic ability modifier + your proficiency bonus.

Your dragonmark may allow you to cast rituals as well. To cast a spell as a ritual, you must add 10 minutes to the spell's casting time, during which you meditate and draw from your dragonmark. If your dragonmark grants you the ability to perform rituals, you must either have the ability to cast spells of the ritual's level from a class feature or meet the following level requirements:

Ritual Level Minimum Character Level
1 1
2 2

Forbidden Dragonmarked Aspects

Aberrant dragonmarks are mutations that appear occasionally among the dragonmarked races, either to those not of a dragonmarked house or among mixed bloodlines that cross dragonmarked families. They can be traced back to the bloodlines of corrupted dragonmarked families eliminated in the War of the Mark. At quick glance, an aberrant mark could be mistaken for an established dragonmark, but on close inspection the differences are readily apparent.

The Mark of Death, on the other hand, is the most mysterious of all dragonmarks. Rendered extinct long ago, its reappearance is carefully watched for, and would signal imminent doom.
