Dragonborn[edit]

Like the Dragonborn in 4e, but made for the best edition ever and way more variable.

Personality[edit]

The actual personality of a Dragonborn is as variable as a human's. However, this personality is normally similar to the dragon parent, not the individual's interests.

Physical Description[edit]

Dragonborn races are categorized in traits as follows:

  • Flameborn: 6'-7' in height, 275-350 lbs. A flameborn has red scales, ivory horns, and golden eyes.
  • Iceborn: 5'0"-5'6" in height, 100-140 lbs. An iceborn has silver scales, white horns, and cold blue eyes.
  • Nightborn: 7'0"-7'6" in height, 360-400 lbs. A nightborn has black scales, grayed horns, and crimson eyes.
  • Stoneborn: 7'-8' in height, 450-500 lbs. A stoneborn has gray scales, browned horns, and black eyes.
  • Thunderborn: 4'-5' in height, 125-200 lbs. A thunderborn has blue scales, yellowed horns, and purple eyes.
  • Waterborn: 5'-6' in height, 130-200 lbs. A waterborn has bronze scales, black-tipped ivory horns, and green eyes.

Relations[edit]

Each race of dragonborn gets along well with its parent dragon.

Alignment[edit]

Same as the parent dragon, mostly. Some take other alignments, though.

Lands[edit]

Wherever their dragon parents live.

Religion[edit]

Dragonborn races worship the draconic gods, although some have grown familiar with Pelor.

Language[edit]

Draconic is the major language of the Dragonborn races.

A surname in the Dragonborn races is invariably the name of the race. A first name is either a dragon name or a human name. Male Dragon Names: Alibor, Brenlin, Hisashi, Sashiseth.
