Drowconian (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: The max age of a thousands of years is pretty questionable. See the Age section of the 5e Race Design Guide. The RH&W Table's values are too much and don't match the that outlined in the Size trait. Other than that more tangible information on the race like the circumstances of their existence would help a player come up for their own origins in a campaign. This also sounds a lot like if a drow completed the ritual to make them a Half-Dragon as outlined in the Monster Manual. A source of inspiration but also something to distinguish the race from.

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Compared to the Aarocokcra, Dragonborn and Drow this race is a decent amount stronger. Almost entirely due to granting a flying speed at 1st level. The easy fix would be to swap it out for another draconic quality like damage resistance or a breath weapon. Overall there is also a lack of elvish qualities, mechanically a +1 to each of the ability scores given and fey ancestry is closer to a combination of the two races.

Drowconian[edit]

“I know everything, you see”, the old voice wheedled. “The beginning, the present, the end. Everything. You see the past and the present, like other low creatures: no higher faculties than memory and perception. But dragons, my boy, have a whole different kind of mind.” He stretched his mouth in a kind of smile, no trace of pleasure in it. “We are from the mountaintop: all time, all space. We see in one instant the passionate vision and the blowout.”
—John Gardner, Grendel

Physical Description[edit]

At a distance, drowconians are often confused with a human, their drow heritage has almost been completely masked by their draconic heritage, but as the viewer draws closer the differences become wildly apparent. Scales run along their entire body including their cheeks, neck, up and down their arms and legs, and back. Some may have small horns on their heads, while others may possess a prehensile tail that reaches down towards their ankles; few may have both. Slitted eyes and forward-facing, dragon ears complete their draconic appearance.

History[edit]

For some drowconians have been seen as creatures blessed by the gods, while by other others they’re treated as abominations of natural law. Because of this, they may be surprised by the positive or negative attitude towards them when entering a new town. Drowconians are incapable of having natural-born offspring, leading to the race being incredibly rare in nearly all regions of the world.

Throughout history, drowconians become trusted sages sought far and wide for their extensive knowledge, while others may become vicious mercenaries feared throughout the countryside. Though many become wanderers searching for many different things, most often their draconic parent, an adventuring life comes as the next logical step to finding what they're looking for

Society[edit]

Not much is known about their society because they're rare to find but on the occasion, they're found they're most of the time assigned to a noble leader (most of the times female) and serve as their guardian and protector and on occasion, send to accomplish a task set by their master.

Drowconian Names[edit]

Drowconians usually adopt the naming scheme of their drow society. On rare occasions, they may also have a draconic name either as their only name or nickname.

Male: Zerdeog, Eolzryd, Kaymycrurth, Uthyr

Female: Hevnael, Irvyt, Fuvnir, Cezetx
