SPECIAL TRAITS

  • Chosen of the Dragon. The dracovari elder has advantage on saving throws against being charmed or frightened.

  • Trident. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (1d12 + 4) piercing damage.
  • Breath Weapon (Recharge 6). The dracovi elder exhales fire in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 16 Dexterity saving throw, taking 27 (8d6) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

ABOUT

The epithet lizardmen is often applied to the draconian races. Even the name draconian is a misnomer given they are recognized as two distinct races – the tall, scaled dracovi and the squat kobolds.

Kobolds are often the first to gather near a greater dragon, somehow drawn to the creature even before it has fully awakened. Over time, people have come to realize that wherever there is a gathering of kobolds, a dragon is surely nearby.

The draconic cults live underground, either in natural caverns or long forgotten ruins in more temperate and warm climates. Dracovi are powerful, muscular humanoids that have a natural affinity to the lingering vestiges of the divine. They are the foot soldiers of the draconian cults. In contrast, the smaller, more dragon-like kobolds serve as guards and provisioners – hunting and foraging. Though individually weak, kobolds are fanatically loyal to their dragon and the dracovi elder, and fight with ferocity when cornered.
