Frostborn (5e Race)

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Even as a single racial trait, permanent advantage on some cantrips and spells(if what i assume it intends is correct) is kinda busted. Even then, having a single racial trait kinda stinks. Even the dragonborn has two.

Many different tribes of Frostborn have different religions on how they came to be, most, however, follow the idea that a legendary dragon sculpted them from the frost in order to help travelers go through the treacherous mountains. Others may believe a Angel made them for a reason they will find later in their lives. However, there are some tribes who do not follow any religions and accept that they are where they are because it is the most livable for them, and helping others is a good and easy way to make coin.


The Frostborn are peaceful people who come from the highest mountains in the lands, they make their way in life as hunter/gatherers, and helping passers by, many people who have encountered a Frostborn tribe describe them as guiding spirits in their travels. In every tribe there is a chief, who decides on where the tribe should migrate each season.

Frostborn Names[edit]

Frostborn names are dependent on tribe, the more religious tribes have names that sound more Norse, and less religious tribes have east-asian sounding names.
