Languages: Draconic
Equipment: A bottle of black ink, a quill, a small knife, a letter from a dead colleague posing a question you have not yet been able to answer, a set of common clothes, and a belt pouch containing 10 gp.

Feature: Draconic Knowledge


When you attempt to learn or recall knowledge about magic or dragons, if you do not know that information, you often know where or from whom you can obtain it. Usually, this information comes from a library, an elder member of the order, or even a dragon. Your DM might rule that the knowledge you seek is secreted away in an almost inaccessible place, or that it simply cannot be found. Unearthing the deepest secrets of the dragons can require an adventure or even a whole campaign.

Additionally, you have access to the Tower of Wyrms where all manner of information is hoarded.
