Tsobaal, Pyroclastic Drakenbred[edit]

Pyroclastic Drakenbred, called Tsobaal in draconic, are one variant of the Drakenbred race. See the Helvruin Campaign or the List of Drakenbred for more types of Drakenbred.


Each Tsoba has the broiling heart of a lava dragon within them, so they can be calmly dormant to ragingly fierce. They have a wide range of hard personalities, that causes each one to act slightly different.

Physical Description[edit]

The Tsobaal are a bit shorter than your average humans, and have a stouter build. They have burning, lava-colored skin, with patches of rocky scales along their jaws, shoulders, forearms, shins and feet. These scales range in color from granite to sandstone, and are the same color as their hair. Their eyes are solid, boiling colors of red, orange, yellow and brown. They have two horns that protrude from the back of the head, and sweep forward in arcs.


Tsobaal are very abrasive when dealing with other races, they burn and fight to gain prowess. Their camps are almost always full of scoundrels and mercenaries.


Tsobaal can be of any alignment, however they tend to be very indifferent, staying close to the neutral alingments. However, they are also more tempted to lean toward chaotic or evil alignments.


Tsobaal usually set their homes in the mountainous regions, often near volcanoes, deserts or cold regions.


Tsobaal tend to worship firey deities or Draconic deities. They differ in religious beliefs from each individual to the next.


Tsobaal learn commmon, Ignan and Draconic through their culture, and often learn any nearby regional languages. They can also learn chaotic extraplanar languages.


Tsobaal are given a surname at hatching, but earn their first name through deeds of strength and tests of prowess.
