Hello potential dragonborns of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the fourth episode of our dragonborns sub-race series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at the bronze dragon. Which is one of the cooler ones, it’s the second of the metalic we’re going to be taking a look at, right after the brass dragons so really cool stuff! if you haven’t seen that article you can click on the link that we provided if you have fantastic stuff.
That being said! It is found in the player’s handbook just like all of its other sub-races and let’s take a look at its mechanics.
It gets resistance to lightning and as its breath weapon, it is 5 by 30-foot line of lightning and any creature targeted or affected by it makes a dexterity saving throw on a success taking half damage. The DC is calculated by eight plus your constitution modifier plus your proficiency bonus and in terms of damage it depends on level.
- Resistance: Lightning
- Breathweapon: 5 by 30ft, Line (Dex.Save) Lightning damage
- DC=8+CON MOD+PRO
- 1ST level: 2d6, 6th level: 3d6, 11th level: 4d6, 16th level: 5d6.
So at level one is two die six, at level six it’s three die six, at level eleventh it’s four die six and at level 16 it is five die six damage which is pretty impressive. In terms of the actual dragonborn itself let’s take a look at its features, personalities and other facts about it.
In terms of features and as a beak shaped mouth. It also has multiple small black horns on the its head. Other kind of like pseudo horns are very small in size but still there.
In terms of personality they’re very good and lawful. They enjoy interactions but they don’t like being the center of attention. They hate criminals but they also hate killing. They have a very much black and white mindset. Meaning they see the world one way or the other there’s very little room for gray area. Their preferred treasures are coral and pearls but they have a shameful love for gold.
Other cool facts about them, they’re typically found in coasts, they mate for life and they have large appetites. They really do just love the zest of the world as a whole. They typically masquerade at least the dragons themselves, typically masquerade as vigilantes.
So that’s certainly something we could roll into your character. I really like them and in all honesty i think there’s a ton of great role play opportunity within the bronze dragon class. That being said, let’s take a look at my personal thoughts.
So i mentioned before that i liked them. But in terms of classes i think they work best with. I want to say the arcane trickster rogue who would really suit them. So would a couple of the monks as well as at least under the right circumstances a lot of the clerics. Once again they like interaction but they don’t like being the star of the show.
So a support role suits them a little bit better or a utility role suits them a lot better. They’re very slow to violence as well. So if they can get out of violence by tricking or otherwise disarming the situation they’re far more likely to do that. I just really like them, i think they’re cool.
If you have any cool ideas on how to use them or any thoughts and opinions please put them down benath in the comment section. Thank you so much guys i really do appreciate it and have a great day and as always happy adventuring everyone.
