Lesser Pseudodragon Paragon
Lesser pseudodragons are not quite as apt as their other kin, but with some focus and training they can awaken their inner dragon even above and beyond.
Making a Lesser Pseudodragon Paragon
Abilities: Lesser Pseudodragons typically focus on Constitution, for while other ability scores may vary, constitution determines the power of their poison and, eventually, breath weapon.
Races: Lesser Pseudodragon. A normal pseudodragon can also join, but only takes one level and gain the benefits of the 3rd level of the class.
|1st||+1||+2||+2||+2||Blindsense 30 ft, Improved Poisoning, Natural Armor +2, Partial Class Advancement, Racial Improvement|
|2nd||+2||+3||+3||+3||Blindsense 60 ft, Natural Armor +4, Spell Resistance|
|3rd||+3||+3||+3||+3||Ability Boost (+2 Con), Dragon Breath, Natural Armor +6|
Class Skills (6 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the lesser pseudodragon paragon.
Blindsense (Ex): A lesser pseudodragon paragon gains blindsense out to 30 ft. This increases to 60 ft at 2nd level.
Improved Poisoning (Ex): A lesser pseudodragon paragon's poison ability improves. The 1 hour cooldown is removed.
Natural Armor (Ex): A lesser pseudodragon paragon improves their natural armor bonus by +2 (if they have none, they count as having a bonus of +0). They gain another +2 at 2nd level and 3rd level.
Partial Class Advancement: Choose one class you possess (or will possess in the future). A lesser pseudodragon paragon adds his class levels to the chosen class for determining level dependent abilities such as sneak attack, caster level, initiator level, and so forth. You do not gain any additional spells known or other class features.
Racial Improvement: Add your class level to your effective HD for determining the power of your racial abilities, such as when you obtain flight. For example, a lesser pseudodragon paragon 2/fighter 1 counts as having 5 HD for the purpose of determining flight.
Spell Resistance (Su): At 2nd level a lesser pseudodragon paragon gains spell resistance equal to their HD + 10.
Ability Boost: At 3rd level, a lesser pseudodragon paragon gains an additional +2 Constitution.
Dragon Breath (Su): At 3rd level, a lesser pseudodragon paragon has managed to gain the awesome breath of their greater kin. Choose an element (acid, cold, electricity, or fire). They can deal 1d6 damage per two HD of their chosen element in a 30 ft cone or a 60 ft line, chosen on when they use their breath weapon. There is a 1d4 round cooldown before they can breath again.

Combat: Pseudodragons are not known for their size and strength, so many focus on less strength dependent tasks.
Advancement: Lesser pseudodragons make excellent rogues and wizards, and many follow such paths.
