Born to fight, dragonborn are a race of wandering mercenaries, soldiers, and adventurers. Long ago, their empire contended for worldwide dominion against elvenkind, but now only a few rootless clans of these honorable warriors remain to pass on their legacy.

Play a Dragonborn if you want…
to look like a dragon.
to be the proud heir of the ancient and most mythical of all living things.
to breathe acid, cold, fire, lightning, or poison.
to be a member of a race that favors the warlord, fighter, and paladin classes.


PHYSICAL QUALITIES

Dragonborn resemble humanoid dragons. They’re covered in scaly hide, but most do not have tails. They are tall and strongly built, often standing close to 6½ feet in height and weighing 300 pounds or more. Their hands and feet are strong, talonlike claws, with three fingers and a thumb on each hand. A dragonborn’s head features many of the same characteristics of true dragons, especially with the true dragon the dragonborn shares a color with. On all dragonborn, behind the brow, a crest of hornlike scales of various lengths resembles thick, ropy hair. Their eyes are all shades of bright colors and metallic sheen.

A typical dragonborn’s scales coloration matches the hue of a chromatic or metallic dragon, and scale color gives indication of the type of breath weapon a dragonborn uses. Most dragonborn have very fine scales over most of their body, giving their skin a leathery texture, with regions of larger scales on the forearms, lower legs and feet, shoulders, and thighs.

Young dragonborn grow faster than human children do. They walk hours after hatching, reach the size and development of a 10-year-old human child by the age of 3 and reach adulthood by 15. They live about as long as humans do.
