    Hrmmm, not sure what I was thinking with the suggested change for Alternate Form. Let's leave it the way you had it originally. I think most dragons with Alternate Form have Large or smaller, but I...

    Let's go for a more real-world version. So Medium, with advancement and size information as you suggest. Then a 1d8+(1-1/2)Str bite and Str 15, Dex 16, Con 13, Int 1, Wis 12, Cha 2, NA +3 seems...

    Let's go with full-round casting time, close range, and the 1 min/level duration as you suggest. This looks pretty good. Let's work out the rest before deciding on the spell level.

    Answering in no particular order: :p

    I think version 1 is good for the breath weapon "reset" times.

    I can go for "epic or alignment" for the DR on these, as you suggest.
