The fearsome Dragonborn hail from the southern Swarteberch, and are generally seen to be brutish savages. They don’t often have much magical ability outside of those who are born with the blood of Varis, who become mighty sorcerers, each of which will usually command a tribe or clan.
The clans are divided by color, so that each clan will generally be Dragonborn of one type. The Dragonborn themselves are few in number, and breed slowly, so that the tribes are mostly made up of Kobolds, sometimes known as lesser Dragonfolk. Though cowardly and short-lived, the Kobolds are no less fearsome enemies, making up for their weakness and lack of intellect with base cunning, superior numbers, and an instinctive talent for setting up favorable situations, spearheaded by the highly capable Dragonborn, who rally and command the Kobolds.
The clans are locked in an endless struggle for dominance – should a single ruler emerge, the Dragonborn would be a mighty foe, as savage, violent and ambitious as they are.
