Plug the Dragonborn Barbarian by chief-orc Plug the Dragonborn Barbarian by chief-orc
4E is slowly growing on me, like a cancer. The game-store I've been playing it at has Dark-Sun gladiator matches before the actual encounter games, where we get to use characters we make.

I decided to overhaul an old character I drew, Plug the dragonborn fighter [link] and use him as a barbarian for the arena fights.

Something I noticed about the character I rolled up was that, other than hitting stuff with his axe, Plug had various powers that involved roaring and bellowing, as well as an acid breath weapon, so, I really focused on the character's mouth, to make him look like a big, bellowing acid-pot.

I still think it's lame dragonborn don't have tails. He just seems incomplete without one.

Who says Dragonborn don't have no tail I made a character whose backstory was he was a cursed human slowly mutating into a dragonborn but he was too different from normal Dragonborn to be accepted in either races community so he lived as an outcast with deformed wings and a forked tail, lol six if I went on a bit there just was trying to say you only limited by imagination and DM final ruling to what sort of extras your char has different, but it turned out me just rambling on l o l

Ladies and Gents, THIS is how you play a Dragonborn. I am so amazingly sick of dragon obsessives and fetishists turning them into sparkly, charismatic Mary Sue fuel. It is far more pleasurable both for the player and the rest of the party to play a genuinely flawed character, and evading the stereotypical species image makes it all the more entertaining.

Hey thanks! I appreciate it. I'm glad you could tell I was trying to play an extremely non-typical dragonborn. I gotta say, as much as 4E bugs me, this guy is a blast to use.
If you haven't seen it, I've got a nice little ortho of him here: [link]

Heheh! This is one of the best toony takes on dragonborns I've ever seen. Great stuff!

Agreed about the tail thing.

Also, if I may ramble for a moment, the Troglodyes were one of the few critters I really did not like the redesign for. The old frog-faced, spindly bodied, bow-legged 3.5 troglodytes are the troglodytes for me.
