Dragontortleborn, an Original Race for D&D 5e


"An odd cousin of dragonborn, the dragontortleborn combine the best attributes of dragons, humanoids, and turtles. Usually mistaken for a particularly fearsome tortle or a shelled dragonborn, dragontortleborn are a rare sight in most worlds. Despite their small numbers, dragontortleborn are every bit as proud as their dragonborn cousins. While the dragonborn make their wars on land, dragontortleborn carve out territory in the sea."

The classic Dungeons & Dragons monster, the dragonturtle, finally has its own equivalent to the dragonborn. Along with their description and traits, this document includes two racial feats for the dragontortleborn.

You can get the dragontortleborn bundled with 11 other races in The Book of Uncommon Ancestry.

Hey, I came up with the idea separately of half-dragon dragon turtles and tortles breeding recently, and I made a 3d model of one. When I saw you had made a race for it, I just thought you might like to see my spin on it. I named the model "Simgara Aremagspawn, Half Dragon Turtle/Tortle mage-druidess of Nathair Sgiathach, winged serpent god of faerie dragons". Here's the link to it on thingiverse. . No biggie if you don't look at the picture. I just thought you might get a kick out of it.

Wouldn't a better portmanteau of Dragonborn and Tortle just be Dragontortle? I think it would convey the idea of "Dragon Turtle Player Race" just as effectively and not sound quite so unwieldy.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
