Dragonborn

Dragonborn look very much like dragons standing erect in humanoid form, though they lack wings or a tail. They are tall and strongly built, often standing close to 6½ feet tall and weighing 300 pounds or more. Their hands and feet are strong, talonlike claws with three fingers and a thumb on each hand.

The blood of a particular type of dragon runs very strong through dragonborn clans and those descended from the metallic dragons—brass, bronze, copper, gold, silver—are the most commonly found intermingled with the other races of the Forgotten Realms, for the demeanor of their ancestry flows through them. They are not as ill-inclined as their chromatic brethren and are generally accepted and treated fairly in most civilized areas.

Draconic Ancestry

All dragonborn descend from a lineage of dragons and exhibit some or all of their personality traits. Choose your heritage from the list below. This will also determine the element of the destructive energy you exhale through your breath weapon attack, and the elemental resistance you have. Once per day, as an action, you may unleash that hellish rebuke of your respective element through your draconic maw in a 3 tile cone. The target must succeed a Dexterity Saving Throw (DC 8 + Constitution + your proficiency bonus), or be dealt 2d6 damage of that element.

  • Copper / Black: Acid (Note: Resistance for now will be poison, as there are no abilities or spells that deal acid damage.)

  • Silver / White: Cold

  • Brass / Gold / Red: Fire

  • Bronze / Blue: Lightning

  • Green : Poison

Imposing Nature

Though you are not a dragon, you carry a similarly imposing gravitas etched into your scales. You are proficient in Intimidation.
