The Dragon-born Rebellion is the name of the conflict that took place around 300 years ago, when the dragonborne liberated themselves from their oppressive dragon masters. The dragonborne were created by the then god-like dragons as a slave race to cater to the needs of the dragons, and to serve as laborers and warriors. They were created from tribes of lizardfolk, whom the dragons had captured and used magic to draconify them in their own image, very closely paralleling The Serpents creation of the dragons using dinosaurs. Most dragonborne clearly did not desire being slaves to the dragons, and this sparked uproar among the neighboring nations, whom assisted the Dragon-born Rebellion in an attempt to free the opposed dragonborne.
Previously, the Serpent Isle was never bothered by the outside nations. It was a place for dragons to live unbothered, everyone knew that. Most saw little value in invading an island ruled by extremely powerful dragons. Many doubted the treasure on the isle would be worth the manpower need to take it. Additionally, the chromatic dragons and the metallic dragons were too busy fighting each other for the other nations to worry about the threat of dragons conquering the world, plus an attack against the isle might unite the dragons to attack the offending nation. These dismissed notions became more of a problem when the war between the chromatic dragons and the metallic dragons became more severe, causing dragons to increase their attacks on the other nations in raids for supplies. Many were also afraid of the dragons frightening, and increasing, power, and were worried that whichever side won the war would be unstoppable, and needed to be put down before their power increased any more and while the war distracted them. The tipping point came when dragonborne started becoming more prevalent, and many nations were worried that more people would start getting abducted to become slaves and servants to the dragons in their war.
Many peaceful protests were staged against the dragons by the dragonborne, almost all of which ended in slaughter against the dragonborne. Protests became violent when the dragonborne knew the dragons would not listen to them, and staged coups against their masters. The dragonborne used the raided treasure and geographical position of the Isle to build up their weapons and build up an army comprised of many nations to slaughter their draconian enslavers, both chromatic and metallic alike. Thus, the Liberation Army was created. The conflict marked it’s end when the Liberation Army slew the elder dragons of both sides, first Delvash the World-Eater and then Nilanith the Victorious, causing the remaining dragons to surrender or flee.
With the Dragon-born Rebellion over, the biggest immediate problem was dividing up the dragon’s treasure between the nations. The nations of armies sometimes even went into minor skirmishes over who would guard the piles of treasure. Fortunately, the nations compromised to surrender most of the treasure to the dragonborne, whom needed it the most. Some dragonborne flooded into the nearby nations, setting up new lives for themselves. Most stayed behind however, and rebuilt Serpent Isle from the ground up with the treasury left behind. A king was declared, Nadaar, who was the son of Mishaan and Sulkris, the famous liberator pair who tragically perish in battle. Doing this, the Serpent Kingdom was founded, which has the highest number of dragonborne people in the world.
