In my DnD 3.5 game I'm lvl 14 and I'm getting a dragon cohort using the dragon cohort feat and after talking with my gm we decided a very young red dragon would suit me the best.
So from what I understand you give your dragon cohort class levels and every second year he must take a point into his racial hd and after 3 of these points and a total of 6 years he will advance in his age category, at least from Wyrmling-Young and with red dragons. I really want just a pure dragon so if possible I want him to remain as close to this as possible.
Now I have a few questions regarding dragons as cohorts.
- Is there any way to advance the dragons age to another age category without having to wait 6 years? Magic, feats or anything.
- Is there any way to give the dragon advancements in his racial hd when he's leveling instead of giving him class levels?
- And if there's no way to advance the dragons racial hd is there any class which has the prerequisite true dragon?
