Charac t e r Rac e
Physical QualitiesDragonborn resemble humanoid dragons. They’recovered in scaly hide, but they don’t have tails. Theyare tall and strongly built, often standing close to6. feet in height and weighing 300 pounds or more. Their hands and feet are strong, talonlike claws withthree fingers and a thumb on each hand. A dragonborn’shead features a blunt snout, a strong brow,and distinctive frills at the cheek and ear. Behindthe brow, a crest of hornlike scales of various lengthsresembles thick, ropy hair. Their eyes are shades of red or gold.A typical dragonborn’s scales can be scarlet, gold,rust, ocher, bronze, or brown. Rarely do an individual’sscales match the hue of a chromatic or metallicdragon, and scale color gives no indication of the typeof breath weapon a dragonborn uses. Most dragonbornhave very fine scales over most of their body, givingtheir skin a leathery texture, with regions of largerscales on the forearms, lower legs and feet, shoulders,and thighs. Young dragonborn grow faster than human childrendo. They walk hours after hatching, reach thesize and development of a 10-year-old human childby the age of 3 and reach adulthood by 15. They liveabout as long as humans do.
Playing a Dragonborn To a dragonborn, honor is more important than lifeitself. First and foremost, honor is tied to battlefieldconduct. Adversaries should be treated with courtesyand respect, even if they are bitter enemies. Cautionand discretion are key to a warrior’s survival, but fearis a disease and cowardice is a moral failing. The drive to behave honorably extends into the restof a dragonborn’s life: Breaking an oath is the heightof dishonor, and attention to honesty extends to everyword. A commitment made must be carried out. Ultimately,a dragonborn takes responsibility for his or heractions and their consequences.A continual drive for self-improvement reveals anadditional aspect of dragonborn honor. Dragonbornvalue skill and excellence in all endeavors. They hateto fail, and they push themselves to extreme effortsbefore they give up on something. A dragonborn holdsmastery of a particular skill as a lifetime goal. Membersof other races who share the same commitmentfind it easy to earn the respect of a dragonborn. The dragonborn dedication to honor and excellencesometimes leads others to view dragonborn as arrogantand proud. Most dragonborn share a great pridein their race’s past and present accomplishments, butthey are also quick to admire the accomplishments of others. Even though the tiefling empire of Bael Turathwas the enemy of the ancient dragonborn empire of Arkhosia, dragonborn recognize tieflings as worthycompanions or opponents, admiring their strengthand tenacity as friends or enemies.Dragonborn seek adventure for the chance to provetheir worth, win renown, and perhaps become championsabout whom stories will be told for generations. To win everlasting glory through mighty deeds, daringexploits, and supreme skill—that is the dragonborn
