Creating a dragon's guard


Advice

Draconic bloodline bloodrager is my focus here. I have a running concept about a Blue dragon bloodrager who will at one point go into the dragon disciple prestige, despite the loss of some BAB additions.

This being said, I'm looking for a way to make this bloodrager more martial based. I've investigated a bloodrager archetype that trades the spellcasting for Spell resistance instead. I've applied it to another bloodrager but I would like input on how it would affect this character.

What I would like to make is a Draconic guard so to speak. A bloodrager that draws on the power of it's color dragon to either align itself and protect a dragon of that color, or fight them head to head. Best way I can describe it would be like Laxus from fairy tail, a lightening dragonslayer.


The Untouchable archetype is a trap; since you can't voluntarily lower the SR your allies have to go through the spell penetration. Your Wizard friend isn't going to be happy when he tries to cast Haste on you and it fails.

Unfortunately, there is not a good option for bloodragers without casting at the moment.

Even besides that... how are you getting into the Dragon Disciple prestige class without spellcasting? You need to be able to cast 1st level spells to qualify for it.

Good point, I had forgotten about that. thank you for pointing out that flaw in my logic

The bloodrager archetype from melee tactics is decent enough. You get combat styles, monk unarmed strikes progression at -2 levels, and other stuffs. At the cost of diminished spellcasting, you get one less spell known every level.

Blood-Knuckled Rowdy.

That sounds perfect. I didn't see it in the advanced class guide, so I was wondering. It does look like an interesting option. So ill have relatively three methods of attack. unarmed, claws, and whatever weapons I carry

Ok, the hand to hand is working then. So how about the lightening fist thing? I think there is an elemental fist feat, the suli's get it as a racial feat, and I know there is a monk archetype I think. Is there like a magus that specifically uses fists instead of weapons?
