Dragonborn for 0e

Though there is probably exceedingly little overlap between dragonborn enthusiasts and 0e players, this back-conversion is offered up to that small, select intersection of these two groups. The following text is Open Game Content.

Dragonborn

Dragonborn are rare, scaly humanoids descended from dragons. They approach nearly every undertaking with the utmost enthusiasm and intensity. Dragonborn may have once possessed a kingdom of their own, but now they are scattered across the world in small, tight-knit communities. They revere tradition and respect the bonds of their clan and family.

Young Dragonborn grow quickly. They walk hours after hatching, attain the size and development of a 10-year-old human child by the age of 3, and reach adulthood by 15. Adult Dragonborn are taller and heavier than humans, standing well over 6 feet tall and averaging almost 250 pounds. They live to be around 80.

Dragonborn as Player Characters

Draconic Ancestry: All Dragonborn have a breath weapon that can be used once per day. A Dragonborn’s ancestry determines the breath weapon.

Draconic Ancestry
Dragon Breath Weapon Effect
Black 30-foot line 2d6 acid damage, saving throw for half
Blue 30-foot line 2d6 lightning damage, saving throw for half
Brass 10-foot diameter cloud Sleep until the victim is physically awakened; a saving throw is required for anyone caught in the breath weapon, regardless of level
Bronze 30-foot line 2d6 lightning damage, saving throw for half
Copper 30-foot line 2d6 acid damage, saving throw for half
Gold 15-foot cone 2d6 fire damage, saving throw for half
Green 10-foot diameter cloud 2d6 poison gas, saving throw for half
Red 15-foot cone 2d6 fire damage, saving throw for half
Silver 15-foot cone 2d6 cold damage, saving throw for half
White 15-foot cone 2d6 cold damage, saving throw for half

Classes: Dragonborn player characters must be Fighters and may advance beyond 6th level only if the warrior has Strength of 17 (maximum 7th level) or 18 (maximum 8th level). Such a Fighter may also take advantage of any XP bonus due to a high Strength score to gain experience more quickly. Dragonborn that are not player-characters might have completely different limitations or abilities than player-character Dragonborn adventurers, as determined by the Referee.

Dragonborn as Monsters

This bipedal dragon stands well over six feet tall and is armed and armored like a warrior. Its fine scales are colored dark red.
