“Draconians, also called dragonmen, are humanoid beings with dragonlike features created during the War of the Lance. They are originally made from the eggs of good dragons corrupted with dark magic. During that era Draconians served as assault troops and special forces in the Dragonarmies of Takhisis. After the war they scattered to various regions of Ansalon. During the Chaos War a small group of the draconians find eggs containing female draconians. After the females hatched those draconians form the nation of Teyr, establishing the draconian race. Draconians are split into five principle races; Baaz, Kapak, Sivak, Aurak, and Bozak.[21] There are also noble draconians, which are formed from the eggs of evil dragons, and have a good alignment. There are flame, vapor, lightning, venom, and frost variants.”–Wikipidia list of Dragonlance creatures.

Though it’s true that dragonborn who choose a career in adventuring are commonly those born with the strength, charisma, and breath weapons of their ancestors, not all dragonborn are gifted with those particular abilities. Some dragonborn use their social skills to gain honor and benefit from ruling councils. Some hold their ancestors more primal fighting instincts. Others are adapted to the arctic, mountains, or oceans.

Below you will find a variety of alternate racial traits and ability score bonuses that help to differentiate between the species of dragonborn. Some campaigns may even choose to have the various subraces live in their own countries with different religions and political goals instead of them all living in one land.

The range of powers, skills, and ability score increases presented below would also allow for an entirely dragonborn campaign with no, or few, other humanoid races.
