The Dragonborn of Sang

Art by Yuriy

In the desert Country of Sang in the Land of Azurth, there dwells a race of warriors called the Dragonborn. They are few in number, but they are at war with all other folk, including other breeds of their own kind. Only rarely do they permit themselves companions.

The Dragonborn fight--and fight among themselves--to prove their strength. Only the strongest of each breed can keep the vigil. Only the strongest can stand steadfast through the long years in the caves where the ancient machines incubate the next generation. Only the strongest can ensure the Dragonborn survive.

When the hatchlings come mewling and snapping from the incubators, this is what their guardians tell them: "We came from the void. We are not of this small world. But here in this desert, in the bones of our old ships, we abide. You will grow and fight. The strong will survive to teach the hatchlings that follow after, as I have taught you. This is what it means to be Dragonborn."

This is cool. Draconic warrior PC race with a strong Thark/Yathoon vibe to them, what's not to like? :-)

Intriguing. Sounds like it would be difficult to have a dragonborn adventurer though.

@Dariel - Thanks!
@seaofstarsrpg - I my desire to be brief, I left out some of my thought conceptually. I see the period where the Dragonborn are growing and competing as a time where they might be found among adventurers. I would prefer they be rare, but it would be possible.
