Dragonmark Feat


Dragonmarks are elaborate skin patterns, similar to tattoos, that grant their bearers innate spellcasting abilities. Each type of mark is tied to large, extended families that control a different industry or trade in Khorvaire.

You are a member of your mark’s corresponding Dragonmarked house (or houses, in the case of the Mark of Shadow) and must belong to its listed race or races. Not every member of a given family possesses a Dragonmark. You must take one of the following Backgrounds at character creation: House Renegade or House Scion.

Select one of the options from the Dragonmarks table below.

You gain the ability to innately cast spells and cantrips, as summarized in the Dragonmark Benefits table below, using the spellcasting ability listed under the Ability column. You cast each spell at its lowest level. Once you cast a given spell this way, you must finish a long rest before you can cast it innately again. You must still expend any material components. Your Dragonmark confers the following benefits:

  • When you first take this feat, you gain the Least Dragonmark. You learn the spells listed under the Least column.
  • At 5th level and higher, your mark becomes more potent, improving to Lesser Dragonmark. You also learn the spell listed under the Lesser column.
