[RPG] Do Dragonborn come from eggs


We have been adventuring, and in our latest quest, we came upon a witch that had a couple of Draconic eggs in a cooking pot. They seemed intact, and a blue one even gave off an electrical sensation.

The guess was that they were Dragon eggs. However, as there are many Draconic-type races in 5e, there's a possibility it could be anything from Kobold to Dragon.

My question though is: does this selection include Dragonborn? I.e. Do Dragonborn come from eggs?

Best Answer

In 5e dragonborn come from eggs, PHB pg 34:

Age. Young dragonborn grow quickly. They walk hours after hatching

BTW you should tell apart dragon eggs from dragonborn eggs from the dimension. The dragon eggs are 4 feet tall.

In 4e the same like pointed in dragon magazine 365 pg 28:

Like true dragons, however, dragonborn hatch from eggs, usually laid singly or, more rarely, in a pair.

and then in Player's Handbook Races - Dragonborn pg 19:

From the moment you emerged from your egg...
