Dragonborn (Pathfinder homebrew)
These rules were written based on the rules for Dragonborn in D&D 3.5 and D&D 4th.
Dragonborn: Pathfinder Edition
Dragonborn are passionate and headstrong. They tend to have personality traits similar to the dragons they are descended from. If dragonborn are descended from multiple colours of dragon, the physical and mental traits of only one of the dragons that the dragonborn is descended from will manifest in the dragonborn.
Dragonborn are tall humanoids, covered in tough scales, which are the same colour as the dragon they are descended from. This could be black, blue, green, red, white, brass, bronze, copper, gold or silver. Their eyes can be almost any chromatic or metallic colour.
Normal Speed: Dragonborn have a base speed of 30 feet.
Medium Size: Dragonborn are medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
+2 Constitution, +2 Charisma, -2 Dexterity: Dragonborn are tough and proud, but lack grace.
Emissary: Dragonborn are good negotiators and diplomats. Once per day, they may roll twice when making a bluff or diplomacy check and take the better roll.
Natural Armour: The tough scales of the Dragonborn give them a +2 natural armour bonus to their AC.
Energy Resistance: Dragonborn have resistance 5 for the energy type of their breath weapon (See table below).
Low light vision: Dragonborn see twice as far as humans in conditions of low light.
Breath Weapon: Once per day as a standard action, a Dragonborn can make a supernatural breath weapon attack that deals 1d6 energy damage, the energy type and range of the attack depending on the scale colour of the Dragonborn. All creatures within the affected area must make a Reflex saving throw to avoid taking damage. The save DC against this breath weapon is 10+[1/2 user's character level]+[user's Constitution modifier]. Those who succeed at the save take no damage from the attack.
