Since I've got D&D 5th RPG books, mots from my Birthday. Now my problem is that for a homebrew world I'm stuck on Middle Age setting, but I nwat to due Tudor Age D&D how do I explain some races from player's guide Dragonborn, Tieflings, and Half Orc, and don't forget the multiverse playable Races as well.

So what can I do?.

Not enough information. The various ancestries aren't tied to a specific timeframe -- they're dependent on the world itself and its history.

So simply knowing a rough timeframe doesn't give us much of anything to work with.

What do you mean by Tudor Period? The Tudors are just the Middle Ages with gunpowder, firearms and cannons. Can't see why that presents a problem.

Well know I've got all of the 5th D&D sourcebooks, I've read them including Spelljamer set, but I read through these books and still the magic, magic objects, weapons and characters are in the middle ages there is no Mighty Fortress source book for 5th D&d there is no 19th century source book ether.

The best I can do is use War of the Roses as inperation for world setting a 15th century D&D world, you can blame A song of Ice and fire for this idea.

Why confine yourself to 5th edition D&D official rules if they do not provide what you want. Please consider another gaming system. After all, Forgotten Realms existed before Dungeons & Dragons.

The DMG has rules for firearms and primitive bombs. Most of the rest is requires less crunch/rules and more fluff/description. That said, Eberron, may be more to your liking as it has a stronger tech element. Similarly, Monte Cooke's Ptolus does as well, which was recently converted to 5E (though I have the 3e version, not the 5E version). Finally, you could probably find something on DM's Guild with a little searching.

I like 5th version of D&D hopefully one day I get to play it so I can DM it very well, Eberron might be my cup of tea, I'm still trying to figure out which Human Gods and Goddess exist in the official Multiverse.

Were in the DMG is the rules for Firearms and primitive bombs,

Is all space travel on D&D 5th version is done in Wild space?, what about normal space travel?.

There's no official set of multiversal deities. Each setting has its own deities, who may or may not exist in other settings.

5E space travel is wildspace or the Astral (wildspace replaces space as we know it).

I HIGHLY recommend Strongholds and Followers by MCDC Productions. It's a great 5e sourcebook for running what you're looking for and has great insight about maintaining castle's, recruitment of followers, medieval aspects regarding both, etc.

They also make a product called Kingdoms and Warfare, but I haven't seen the content in that one.

As for handling non-human races, one idea is to make them extremely rare, almost a myth but also make the wilds very dangerous as to keep humanity close to small pockets of civilization.

4E Realms = Great Taste, Less Filling.
