Sample text

These dragons can be kindly elemental forces as well as deadly ones, calming the elements as well as rousing them to destruction. The elemental dragon might be associated with local spirits, or have responsibilities to set the courses of waterways or to guide the lightning safely to the ground. His native environment tempers his personality, lair, and appetites. For example, a fire dragon can be flamboyant and hot-tempered, and an earth dragon more placid, given to cold-blooded long-term plotting.

It is perfectly reasonable to answer “large, powerful monsters which mark this campaign out as fantasy” – most game dragons serve this purpose, and do so very well. However, if the game will focus on dragons, try giving them a slightly more specific purpose. The PCs Gamers focus on player characters at least as much as they do on settings. So, what is their relationship with the dragons? Can they be dragons themselves? If not, do they fight dragons, serve them, worship them, exploit them, or all of these?

Often described as terrifyingly large – able to coil three times around a hill, or blotting out the sun with their wings – these monsters are probably the most ancient or powerful of their species; game dragons can be larger than any natural creature. Fortunately, they can also have very convenient vulnerabilities, although only a few sages and witches know these. A game can have the tone of a specific culture by restricting the source material to specific myths and legends. On the other hand, a campaign that spans cultures and continents can find room for numerous different species, while still doing each one justice.
