Half-draegloths are the misbegotten crossbreeds between a dark elf
and a draegloth. They serve as captains of a drow house's armies, or may
wander alone in the Underdark as loners.
Creating a Half-Draegloth
Speed: As the base creature.
AC: Natural armor improves by +2.
Attacks: Same as the base creature, plus it gains a pair of claw attacks for 1d6 hit points.
Special Attacks: A half-draegloth retains all of the special attacks of the base creature and also gains the following attacks:
Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): A half-draegloth can cast darkness and unholy blight once per day as a spell-like ability with a caster level equal to its character level (DC 10 + 1/2 hit dice + Charisma modifier). These spell-like abilities are in addition to the base creature's spell-like abilities.
Special Qualities: A half-draegloth retains all of the special qualities of the base creature and also gain the following:
Drow Blood (Ex): For all special abilities and effects, a half-draegloth is considered a drow. For example, they may use special drow magic items, bypass wards tuned to ignore drow, and so on.
Resistances: Half-draegloths have acid, cold, electricity, and fire resistance 5, and gain a +4 bonus to saves against poison.
Saves: Same as the base creature.
Abilities: Increase from the base creature as follows: Strength +2, Dex +2, Con +2.
Climate/Terrain: Any land and underground
Organization: Same as the base creature.
Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature +1 [[Compare to a fiendish drow: similar resistances, no smite, but favorable ability score modifiers.]
Effective Character Level Modifier: +1. [[Compare to aasimar. This is on top of the +2 for being a drow.]]
Treasure: Same as the base creature.
Alignment: Usually chaotic evil
Advancement: Same as the base creature.
This example uses Istorvir, the drow ftr6 I posted in the Drow of the Week a long time ago, as the base creature. (His gear has been adjusted to reflect his new ECL with the template.)
