It'll be interesting to see how you handle being unable to leave your oasis for more than 24 hours, Kunoichi.
For those looking for non-wyrmling options for a true dragon characters, there are a few. very young black and brass dragons are the equivalent of a 10th level character, very young copper dragons are the equivalent of 11th level characters, and very young white dragons are the equivalent of 9th level characters, with young white dragons being the equivalent of 12th level characters. Sapphire and Battle dragons and are comparable to Copper, Fang, Ethereal, and Shadow dragons are comparable to Brass and Black dragons.
I would, however, given the nature of Elliquiy, caution that very young dragons are between 6 and 15 years old, and the lower the racial HD, the lower the age is considered to be. Young dragons are between 16 and 25.
Though of course if Zaer so wished for fewer
baby dragons he could always increase the ECL cap...
