Night Dragon, Median

by Andrew Theisen

In regards to how the night dragons and regular dragons correspond, I wonder if we shouldn't (or at least couldn't) include a third, middle category to the night dragon hierarchy much as the standard dragons are generally split into three. I did a quick workup of a build; I haven't had a chance to calculate the XP, though it looks offhand as if the Greater Night Dragon might be slightly askew from the traditional xp calculation chart (although now that I look at it, the extra xp very likely come from their wish ability, which would carry a pretty hefty price tag). Their spellcasting is rather nonstandard compared to other dragons, as well, so I'm a bit torn as to whether to leave them with only 3 levels of spellcasting, or give them a single 4th level spell as well:
