I have a concept for a character I would really like to play using the Dragonspawn template from the Dragonlance Campaign Setting. The backstory on the character itself gives it a reason to be outside of the setting and the setup of the character.
The hardest part I have is that, in contrast to the Half Dragon template, the DM calls the dragonaspawn template "broken." His main standing is that spawn get death throes and a breath weapon every 2d4 rounds, as opposed to once/day, as with the Half-Dragon template. I've tried pointing out that while this is true, spawn also have other variances from the half dragon, such as normal hit die.
Does anyone (whos is familiar with both) else feel the template is broken? (If you aren't familiar, I can post the template in an edit.) The colour I'm using for the character would be the Blue Dragonspawn template.
I'm still kinda new to the game, and I just thought I'd ask for a little help barganning and rules-lawyering to get my DM to lighten up. (I've almost quit playing because of his excessive limitations already once.)
Thanks in advance.
