Any class missing Listen, Spot, or Profession has it added to their list of class skills.

All classed that have UMD also have UPD

A few classes are tweaked, just a little. I'm leaving general things down to a gentleman's agreement. Don't be a dick and use tortured logic to
justify something like Wizards being able to cast any spell they want.

All arcane spellcasters can choose between prevserving, or defiling. Preserving is arcane casting as it stands. Defiling grants a +1 CL/DC boost,
but permenantly damages the ground around you when you cast spells. Making it even more obvious that you are casting spells.

Fractional BAB/Saves, with the muticlassing bumps still allowed.

I don't pretend these will actually fix classes, but it should make them a bit better, If a class isn't listed here, don't fret! Feel free to approach me about things. I'm more than willing to help modify your favourite pet class.

HP is Average, rounded up. max on first die as always.

Level 3, Standard WBL, 36 PB

I don't do permanent negative levels and such.

Class Changes:

•Increase his HD to a d8

Dragonfire Adept

•Improve his BAB to medium, and grant proficiency with one martial weapon of choice
•Level out breath weapon damage to 1d6/2 levels
•All Invocations are Psi-like rather than spell like

Dragon Shaman
•Improve his BAB to full
•Improve his breath weapon damage to (3/4 level) d6 (as the medium BAB progression, save that you begin with it at 1d6)
•Gain a bonus [Draconic] or Metabreath feat at 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th level.
•Draconic Aura bonus equal to his Charisma modifier or the number shown on the table, whichever is higher.

•Gain wings at 10th level, but with clumsy maneuverability.
•At 19th level, your fly speed improves to 120 feet, with good maneuverability, and you may fly with a medium load at no penalty, and a heavy load

at half speed. You also have an overland movement speed as a dragon.
 Dragon Shamans actually worship drakes, and as such some things may be different. If anyone likes Dragon Shamans (I doubt it) I'll explain the new

Additional Classes
The DSP psionics versions of the Soulknife and Wilder, as well as the Aegis and Vitalist, are up for selection.This may require some cooperation to adequately translate it to 3.5 mechanics. Other classes may be requested.

Monsterous races
Athas is known for various powerful races, some of which were intended as player selections. In general, as a rule of thumb subject to modifcation in edge cases, a monster is a character of it's CR+1. For the base races (with modifications) it comes out as this. All HD mentioned are required to be taken- no trading them out.:

Aakerocera: 1HD monsterous humanoid. You can fucking fly, you can deal with shitty statmods and a racial HD.
Thri-Kreen: 2 HD monsterous humanoid.
Half-Giant: 2 HD giant, stat mods changed to +8 Str, -2 dex, +4 con, -2 int, -2 wis, -4 cha.
Mul: +0. Enjoy the strength. They don't actually get many benefits besides that.

Other races that may be intresting

Gith: +0
Nikall: +0
Bvanen: 3 HD Abberation
Dray (both): 1HD dragon

All characters may have on "regional" feat from the list in the book, with the exception of Freedom, which is banned. If you'd rather have a

similar, non effective pre-requesite feat for this slot, such or the like, feel free.

2 Flaws, 2 Traits.
