  • Tweaked Feats from prior article
  • Tweaked Backgrounds from prior article
  • Brand new rule giving a list of free Feats for ANY Background

Kitiara could become the new dark lady after killing the previous dark lord, or she is used as nemesis/curse/punishment of this. Maybe she becomes the official ruler or leader of the domain but not the true dark lord. Or maybe the dark lady is Tanis & Kitiara's daughter, born before the war of the lance. (Novel "Steel and Stone"). Or the dark lady is Kitiara's clone, with a different soul, reincarnated into a weredragon/song dragon, and Skie, the blue dragon olverlord wants her as "wife".

Or the overlords could discover or invent a new way to create the "ultimate soldier". Using jewels as "cortical stacks" and fantasy version of transhumanism(mind uploading+digital inmortality) (do you remember the "spirit tones" by eldars in Warhammer 40.000?) the "hosts" with special cursed jewels becomes mind-controlled "gem dracotouched", and later spellcalles, gem dragonborn and later gem dragons.

Or some places of the Krynnspace being explored and "settled" by strange new "visitors", the ferrous dragons, "cousins" of the metalic dragons.

What about Lovecraftian cults of the fire (or frost) dragons? These could create a dark domain with touchs of "folk horror", with meneating fire giants as archenemies.
