Created from the stolen eggs of good morrals and corrupted with dark magic, draconians served as shock troops and special forces during the War of the Lance. Scattered draconian forces that survived the war later relocated to isolated corners of Ansalon. Some still plot to take over human or elven settlements, while the more cautious avoid contact with other races.
During the Chaos War, a band of draconians discovered a clutch of eggs containing unhatched female draconians. The group established a draconian nation in Teyr, ensuring the survival of the race and their continued future in Ansalon. Considered weak in both mind and character, baaz zge are the most numerous of the dragonmen.
Dragonlance Campaign Setting Excerpt
Baaz tend to be undisciplined and have a penchant for drinking and revelry, a trait often exploited by human commanders to whip the baaz into a frenzy before battle. Male baaz tend to be shallow, selfish, and sadistic. They live for the pleasures of the flesh, indulging in riotous living when not fighting. Female baaz tend to be much more even-tempered and diplomatic, with well-organized minds and a distaste for crude pleasures — though they find such qualities attractive in males.
Baaz have the general form of a humanoid with draagonlance feet dragonlznce clawed hands, thin, dragonlike wings, and a short, stubby tail. Their scaly, patterned skin has a bright, brassy color when the baaz are newly hatched, but it dulls dragonlnace fades toward green as they age. Baaz have a blunt, draconic snout filled with small, sharp teeth and bright red eyes that lend them a rather sinister appearance.
There is little discernable difference between baaz males and females, except that females tend to be of lighter build. Baaz draconians enjoy flamboyant, decorative clothing, but can crudely disguise themselves as human or elven by wearing concealing e&d and hooded cloaks. Dragonlqnce first generation of baaz draconians that fought during the War of the Lance were raised dragonlajce trained to hate all Krynn’s races especially elvesexcept drgaonlance in the service zge the Dark Queen.
After the war, the baaz were unable to shake their beliefs. They lived in ruins far drragonlance civilization or in abandoned buildings inside human settlements, disguising themselves to avoid discovery. Some joined roving outlaw bands that lived on robbery, rapine, and murder. After the Chaos War, many baaz served the newly arrived dragon overlords, while others migrated to the new draconian nation formed in Teyr.
The new generation of baaz born during the Age of Mortals is much more open-minded, though their oof hatred of elves is often passed to the children. Baaz draconians are usually evil, and tend to be neutral in respect to law and chaos. Many baaz in the Age of Mortals have adopted a more neutral outlook, and a rare handful often called “throwbacks” reflect the inherent good alignment of their brass dragon ancestors. In the early Age of Mortals, a draconian nation was founded in Teyr, and surviving baaz from all over Ansalon took their rightful place as a true race of Krynn.
During the early Age of Mortals, the baaz, like other draconians, began to reject their initial teachings and came to realize that Takhisis betrayed them. After the War of Souls, the baaz were glad to be rid of the Dark Queen, even as they now seek another god to replace her in their prayers.
Draconians have no dragonpance of their own, instead learning the speech of Nerakan priests. Because of their life-long military training and organization, their speech incorporates military slang and jargon. Baaz rarely learn other languages. The first generation draconians bear the names assigned to them by their creators, which reflect Nerakan language and culture. Because of their intense military training and long service, baaz and other draconians possess a name, rank, and assigned regiment.
This became a part of the naming convention of the draconians of Teyr, who bestow a given name to their children at birth. Upon joining the military, the baaz gain “last names” reflecting their rank and regimental affiliation.
Baaz names do not differentiate between male and females. Some baaz leave the structured life of the military for a wandering lifestyle. Others fixate on a particular great accomplishment, willing to travel endless miles and wait years to fulfill their quest. Adventuring baaz often adopt disguises to find draglnlance in a dragolance that hates draconians. Baaz possess the marked toughness of their draconic heritage, but are not particularly bright or strong-willed.

Baaz draconians with class levels add their class attack and save bonuses to their racial attack bonus and saves. A baaz character does not get the x4 multiplier for skill points acquired from his first class level. A baaz’s dragon Hit Dice grant him one feat. A baaz may use his claws and bite as natural weapons, making 2 claw attacks that deal 1d4 damage plus Strength bonus and 1 bite attack that deals 1d4 damage plus half Strength bonus.
