Im back on the European continent and, in the hope that I get over jetlag, would love to join @xaosseed’s table.

Will come too. Would prefer to sit at Darthbinks table, if he dms. Otherwise at Bureks.

my :writing_hand: T1 oneshot will delve a bit into the lore of Faerûn’s Dragonborn nation of Tymanther
… no need for extra pre-knowledge
… being able to speak Draconic is helpful but not needed
… also note that the adventure will have some horror elements


no need to play a dragonborn, but if you wanna do so:
you can choose a Clan and their clan piercings:

  • Clan Kepeshkmolik (big):
    piercings: mother-of-pearl disks that resembled the waxing then waning moon across their brow
    the most openly religious of the Clans - which is not saying much
    mostly worship Enlil (sky/justice), since he helped Tymanther during the Spellplague
    if one would argue, who is the most influencial Clan right now, their name would come out on top
    allies of Clan Tlassian

  • Clan Ophinshtalajiir (big):
    piercings: two light jade rings on the right side of neck
    very traditional; they manage the teleportation circles in the big cities
    they have famous architects and builders among their ancestors
    they also have notable sorcerers with access to powerful earth magic

  • Clan Shestandeliath (big):
    piercings: silver chains from the left nostril to the frill along the left ear
    also a very powerful clan; they own many farmlands
    they are known for breeding the Ishen-Charac, a Tymantheran breed of warhorses
    known to really hate the dragon-goddess Tiamat
    bad vibes with Clan Verthisathurgiesh

  • Clan Verthisathurgiesh (big):
    piercings: dark jade plugs at their right jaw frill
    very traditional; they are in decline and try to regain their lost glory - which is not an easy task
    rumours say, that they guard several powerful artifacts
    they have diplomatic connections to the human kindom of Cormyr (king Arthur knightly realm)
    bad vibes with Clan Shestandeliath

  • Clan Kanjentellequor (minor):
    piercings: silver skewers through their jawline
    known as sages & lorekeepers; they have notable wizards
    is the one that has the most numbers of spellcasters among their ranks
    their patriarch is known to finance expeditions (adventurer groups)

  • Clan Prexijandilin (minor):
    piercings: enamel primroses pierced into their cheeks at the end of plumes
    very traditional; also very warlike - even for Tymantheran Dragonborn standards
    they lost some of their lands in the Second Sundering
    known for their giant slaying as well as for their flower farms

  • Clan Tlassian (minor):
    piercings: amethyst squares in lower lip
    famous for their farmers; also very good smiths/armorers
    they lost some of their lands in the Second Sundering
    they have good connections to the dwarves of the Great Rift (gold dwarf kingdom)
    allies of Clan Kepeshkmolik

  • Clan Yrjixtilex (minor):
    piercings: red jasper axe-head shaped jewels along their right brow
    another farming Clan, but this one lost almost all their lands during the Second Sundering
    now many Clan members are migrant workers or are trying to build new farms
    the Clan is actually quite big number-wise, but had only little political influence until recently
    the current Vanquisher (military ruler of Tymanther) is from this Clan, giving it a little push

there is also a (relatively) new Clan of humans (and a few Tieflings)

  • Clan Khothararirilim (minor):
    piercing: two heavy gold rings in the left ear
    mostly Unther humans (fantasy Mesopotamian/Assyrians) and some tieflings
    many of the humans worship Enlil (sky/justice)

p.s.: if you want to play a dragonborn from a different clan write me a PM


Notes:

  • :art: Tymanther Dragonborn have interbred so much, that their scale colour does not match their ancestry any more - so a Dragonborn with red dragon ancestry could have bluish-white scales

  • :military_helmet: every Dragonborn had to do two years of mandatory military service in Tymanther’s standing army, the Lance Defenders

  • :dragon: :-1: the worship of dragon-gods, like Bahamut/Marduk and Tiamat is forbidden and is punishable by exile!

  • :imp: serving demons and/or dragons is punishable by death

  • :smiling_imp: bargaining with devils on the other hand is fine

  • :balance_scale: Tymanther exports weapons and glassworks / main imports are jewelry, wood and metal

  • :angel: beside Enlil (sky/justice), who is the most accepted god in Tymanther, both Chauntea (agriculture) and Ilmater (perseverance/martyrdom) are also sometimes worshiped, esp. in the rural areas

:musical_score: a few Vayemniri (Dragonborn in their language; lit. the Ash-Marked Ones) songs
from the Awakening festival:


  • The Battle of the Crippled Mountain

This is a general Vayemniri (Dragonborn) song.
It tells how Shurideh and Iksdara Who-Would-Be-Verthisathurgiesh, their kinsman Reshvemi Who-Would-Be-Verthisathurgiesh, and Thuchir Who-Would-Be-Shestandeliath (descendant of Haizverad and bearer of the Breath of Petron) infiltrated the Celestial Mountain, the volcano lair of Rhodrolytharnestryx, the Tyrant of Tyrants, while the red dragon and his dragon army fought against the army of dragonborn rebels.
Shurideh, Iksdara, Reshvemi and Thuchir infiltrated the volcano using two artifacts - the Breath of Petron, and then the Eye of Blazing Rorn - to trigger an eruption so powerful that killed Rhodrolytharnestryx (and miraculously, all four survived).
The ash from the eruption rained for 40 days, and the dragonborn survivors of the battle took it as an omen. They renamed themselves the Vayemniri (lit. the Ash-Marked Ones), no longer slaves but free.


  • Hazor and the Jet-Boned Tyrant

This Kanjentellequor song is about how a dracolich known as Daelfyrthimachian, the Jet-Boned Tyrant, constantly raided Vayemniri (Dragonborn) tombs to raise them as undead, forcing the Vayemniri to kill their dead until they defined their funerary customs.
This song is also the reason dragonborn don’t fear the Wall of the Faithless.
("Better oblivion that apart from our clans. Better an end than a perpetuity in bondage …")


  • The Many Esham-Ana

An Yrjixtilex song. Esham-Ana Who-Would-Be-Yrjixtilex was one of the guards of the slave pens of Gauwervyndhal, the Empress Dragon of Skelkor. He used his position to bring food and other commodities to his fellow slaves.
Ororonymilith, the Vizier of Broken Thorns, a copper dragon, was tasked by Gauwer to find the one who was stealing her food, and the copper dragon went to the slave pens to investigate, using a clanless dragonborn to discover that Esham-Ana was the culprit. The next day, he went to the mines and demanded the slaves to bring Esham-Ana to him to face “justice”.
However, all the slaves began to say that they were Esham-Ana — they never would hand over the one who sustained them to the Foul Empress Dragon — startling the dragon long enough to lower his guard.
Ororonymilith’s skull was the first dragon skull claimed by the first Who-Would-Be-Yrjixtilex.


  • The death of the elders in Raurokh

A Kepeshkmolik song. Shaspur Who-Would-Be-Kepeshkmolik was raised in Raurokh, the fortress of Raurokhymdar the Golden, a gold dragon who conducted experiments to breed better dragonborn slaves. Shaspur was one of her best specimens, and he was raised by seven wise dragonborn elders (Ana-Mashal, Baishiria, Hurashum, Nazari, Qinnaz, Rahishu, and Zerath) so Raurokhymdar could use him as the new father of a better, stronger dragonborn slave clutch.
One day, Shaspur devised a plan to flee Raurokh, but the plan has a big fail: the elders won’t survive it. The elders told Shaspur that he should go on with the plan, saving the younger slaves, while they sacrificed their lives to buy Shaspur time.
The song ends with the tale of how many years later, after the dragonborn founded their nation, Raurokhymdar the Golden was destroyed by Shaspur’s descendants, avenging the dead of the elder ancestors.
