Stacking Sovereign Archetypes
« on: January 14, 2011, 03:03:07 AM »
So my brother was reading Dragons of Eberron and pointed out to me that several Sovereign Archetypes grant Cleric casting - which is what a Dragon must trade out (if it has it) to gain a Sovereign Archetype in the first place.  So would I, by taking an Archetype which grants Cleric casting, be able to trade that Cleric casting for another Sovereign Archetype, and so on?

No.  Sovereign Archetypes straight out say you can't take more than one.

Where does it say that?  I can't find it in my copy of Dragons of Eberron.

Right in the introduction to them it says "This variant rule instead provides a dragon with a special ability based on the Sovereign archetype it chooses to follow.  This special ability replaces the optional spell selection abilities a dragon normally possesses..."

So yeah, you get one archetype to follow.

Yes, but my thought was that several of the Sovereign Archetypes provide the same option, that is, Cleric Spells, and so I was wondering if, by a very permissive view of the RAW, one might stack them.
