Into the Old Woods
More than a thousand years ago, during the time of the great Dragon Empires, the Dragonborn served the rulers of the world. Created by the Dragons, they served as footsoldiers, slavedrivers and attendants of the Ancient Dragons who controlled the world at the time. When the Amrak cast down the Dragons and their Empires crumbled to dust, the slaves were quick to enact retribution against their tormentors.
Today Dragonborn are a rare sight in the Western Lands. What few that remain, live under suspicion and mistrust caused by the actions of their distant ancestors. The Dragonborn that live in civilized society are expected to openly worship Amrak, to prove that their loyalties no longer lie with their creators. Most Dragonborn chose to avoid the large cities, and instead surround themselves with a group with whom they can gain mutual trust. Both independent Mercenary and Adventurer companies serve well for this. Dragonborn still maintain an aptitude for anything martial, no doubt a result of their creation. But not all chose to be soldiers, there are those who seek a quiet life in a distant village.
