1) Brief History

Dracokin were the spawn of elves and dragons, during the end of the Great Magic War and the beginning of the Second Era. Since then, the dragons have all but secluded themselves from humans and more Dracokin have yet to be produced. However of the large amount of Dracokin that were conceived during that time, they all had mated with each other, and grew into a large race. Though losing a lot of their dragon heritage over the years, they have kept to a basic appearance, and thus is the Dracokin race.

2) Positives & Negatives

Dracokin have the ability to fly, and the varying abilities depending upon their element. They also boast great dexterity and natural scale armor. However Dracokin have a tendency to lose control, and some can suffer from mild insanity.

They have sharp teeth giving them bite damage of 2d8, and have sharp talons that have a damage power of 2d20.

Dracokin bear natural armor and great strength making them ideal warriors and guards.

That 5% is applied to your next spell cast or any attack that uses Runic Energy, whether it successfully hits or not, thus not only reducing your damage taking but also increasing the damage you deal, or healing power.

Dragonians also start with the following talents:

Talent Effects Requirements Handicap Cost
Tough Skin

This talent permanently reduces all damage done to HP. It does so by giving you a Defense that is 20% of your Fortitude stat and Spirit that is 20% of your Mental stat. The defense given will reduce any felt physical damage, and the spirit will reduce any felt magical damage. This would be a reduction of any damage that would actually be felt by HP, after any absorption or blocking done by armor. This does not protect against damaging status effects, such as poisons or burns. This does protect against piercing attacks. 

Your character's race must have a race maximum for Fortitude no lower than 60.

Having this talent adversely affects your character's speed potential. Your character's race maximum for Speed is immediately reduced by 20% by having this talent.

3) Lifespan

Dracokin have three stages of life. The first stage, which last from birth until they reach the age of 16, is their child hood. Their development is similar to human children in this stage, though they are able to crawl upon hatching. This is the stage they are most susceptible to danger, death, and disease. They rely totally on their parents during this stage, though some do develop more quickly and reach the next stage of life several years faster. Developing draconian features is a painful experience, and adolescent Dracokin thus need more rest and more nourishment during this process.

The next stage, which last from 17 until the age of 400, is their adult age. This is the age they begin to take on a more draconian appearance, learn to fly, and learn their elemental effect. This is also the age they separate from their parents and go out to learn and explore. Most traveling Dracokin are in this age group.

The final stage, which last from 400 until death, is their adult hood. Most Dracokin return to their pack during this time, an become a beneficial member of such pack. There are some however that are sicken with wanderlust who continue to explore. Death is a Dracokin greatest honor, and they accept their timely death with open arms. However to die before their time is a terrible thing to them.

8) Racial Relations

Dracokin do not suffer or benefit from the same fear factor as their dragon cousins. Therefore they are more able to interact with other races in a more peaceful manner. Who they can interact with is ultimately up to the Dracokin, however many races do not trust them.
