Storm Dragon

"Dragons wheel in the winds of the cyclone and dive to earth with each flash of lightning."

Prerequisite: Dragonborn, any primal class, dragon breath power that deals lightning damage

Some dragons are like forces of nature, the elemental power coursing through their bodies akin to the mightiest forces of storm, earth, or sea. The catastrophic dragons embody the destructive forces of nature, but even the blue dragon is a living incarnation of the storm. Your mastery of primal magic has led you to this path: Like these dragons, the power of the storm flows in your blood and erupts in your breath.

Your allies in the spirit world are draconic spirits of wind, lightning, and thunder, heeding your call to rebuke your enemies, carry your allies on the wind, or transport you through the storm. As you advance on the path of the storm dragon, your appearance changes to reflect the nature spirits you commune with—you might develop the blue scales and prominent horn of a blue dragon, or something of the churning elemental appearance of a typhoon dragon. By the time you reach the end of the path, wings sprout from your back, and you fight with all the savagery of the storm dragon.
