Ditch OC. Don't forget Melodic Casting or a Harmonizing Weapon, and I'd recommend being a Bard over a Crusader for Bardic Knack, spells, and skills (not in that order, of course). Just think of what you give up - glibness, invisibility sphere, charm monster . . . the list goes on and on.
At this rate, we'll ALL be draconically flavored! We should work it into our team style!
Except that my character is going to be evil.
Totally, unequivocally, EVIL.
But a nice guy to his friends and a reliable adventuring companion! With good hygiene and a sense of humor, even!
