This free product includes all of the heritages and cultures in Dragongrin, as well as a quick-start character creation guide, and a world primer.
In A Dead Man’s Guide to Dragongrin. combining heritage and culture yields a character similar in mechanics and balance to a standard 5e race and subrace. This subsystem is fully compatible with standard 5e backgrounds and character classes. Heritage acts similarly to race, while culture acts similarly to subrace.
Your heritage is your ancestry – the blood running through your veins. The mortals of Dragongrin are humanoid in appearance but wildly diverse in heritage. Your heritage grants you increases to ability scores, as well as traits unique to your race.
Your culture is your origin – the people who raised you, the place you call home. Culture transcends heritage in Dragongrin, as people divided often perish under the steel of the Dismembered Lord and his followers. Most cultures include people from many and varied heritages.
