This book contains info on two new races. This book offers a new race that works well with the Dungeons & Dragonssorcerers, a class that uses magical power derived from having dragon blood. The book also contains new prestige classes, feats, and spells.
Gwendolyn Kestrel explains the inspiration for the book's material: "Dragons are a rich part of the Dungeons & Dragons game history. There's plenty of material in the game system to serve as inspiration. Of course, we wanted to go beyond what we had done before. While familiar with both Savage Species and Unearthed Arcana, I didn't directly go to these books for inspiration for Race of the Dragon."
