#87 - Serpentus Rift. Not the naming of a winding canyon after a snake - anyone could do that - but the fact that the Dragonborn went to the effort of decorating walls and bridges along its length with materials to make it reflect the sun in a way that imitated a snake's glittering scales. That's dedication to an idea.

It's been a while since my last of these, so let's quickly continue this 'visual' round of entries. I'm not going to cheapen this list by reeling off every picture of a Dragonborn ever seen (even if that'll quickly fill up the list), but if there weren't Dragonborn, I'd never have created the following:

In light of repeating myself on the last #80:
#80 - The Dragonborn art from 4th edition is living proof that William o'Connor has improved greatly as an artist. Compare any one of his amazing Dragonborn pieces to this horrid old thing from his days as an artist for the Warlord CCG:

#71 - Even without extensive written records from their fallen empire, Dragonborn still have their cultural histories passed down through the generations.
#72 - A Dragonborn can reel off an extensive list of personal ancestors, possibly even in the correct order.
#73 - With the memories of 71 and 72, Dragonborn can find historical precedent to back up or shout down any argument.
#74 - Dragonborn are honourable without living to some constraining, impossible code of honour.
#75 - Some legends say that Dragonborn sprang from the spilled blood of the god Io. How many other species can claim that?

#61 - No Dragonborn is ever going to advertise a product that claims to 'volumise' one's eyelashes.
#62 - Knights vs. Dragons: our own culture has myths of noble knights hunting down dragons. But what if the knights were dragons themselves? I imagine that the Empire of Arkhosia told legends of Dragonborn paladin rescuing fair (Dragonborn) maidens from flying monkeys and giant Kong apes.

#53 - Dragonborn consolidate together and improve upon a wide variety of scattered draconic humanoid races from previous editions. That's evolution, baby!

#55 - Despite their name and heritage, Dragonborn get no special favours from the flying lizards, having to struggle against them like anyone else.
#56 - Having a neck that accomodates a draconic head at an angle approaching ninety-degrees to that intended is something of an achievement.

#58 - Presumably, Dragonborn would say "Who loves ya, hatchling?" instead of our human equivalent.
#59 - Dragonborn...
