Entirely New Dragons


Added the Wind Masters for ya. Just 'cos they've got the heads of bears don't make them any less draconic, y'know ;) - Translucidity

Thanks! - Quendalon

Hmm. Do you want to keep this purely to elemental and Yozi dragons, or are all wyrms, serpents and dragonlike critters welcome? For example, should Sayla, the Yellow Wyrm be in here somewhere? (Behemoth, CotW) - Translucidity

You've committed a very common heresy: The Five Elemental Dragons don't have canonical names. Mela et al. are the Five Immaculate Dragons, who, while they are believed to have been the avatars of the Five Elemental Dragons, were not actually the same beings as said Dragons. Sort of like the relationship between Jesus and God, or Krishna and Vishnu.\\ _Ikselam

Translucidity: Yeah, sure, draconic monsters are cool. Toss 'em in!\\ Ikselam: That's why I noted that the Dragons are "called" by those names. But you are correct; should I just toss the Immaculate names out? - Quendalon

I thought that might be what you were aiming at, but to the best of my knowledge, the Elemental Dragons aren't actually called by those names. Maybe "embodied as the Immaculate Dragon X"? Kind of unwieldy, but more accurate.\\ _Ikselam

OK, how's this look? - Quendalon

Sure, looks fine to me. Added Lanatoxec, since even though I don't actually say he's a lesser Elemental Dragon, it's pretty obvious from his "Quetzalcoatl-on-Fire" description.\\ _Ikselam

Added another one. I'll write up his little page pretty soon, as well. - FourWillowsWeeping

We need some lesser Wood and Earth dragons. Especially Wood.\\ _Ikselam

Hey, can I be Mr. Demanding and request descriptions for new dragons? Ren Shen looks fun. - FourWillowsWeeping

Sure, just not tonight, just finished running Session 12 and need to sleep.  :) - Quendalon

I want a place to put lesser elementals, and I'm wondering how to handle it vis-a-vis this page, since dragons are also elementals. We need a place for things like the rakush: "an air elemental that can take the form of a silver horse, a tangle of lightning, or a maiden with hair like rose petals and eyes full of storms." (taken from Four Willows Weeping, of course!) - Quendalon

Taken from Rakush the horse of Persian mythology, whose coat was like rose petals and who ran swifter than falling thunder.\\ I'll make another page under Creatures! - FourWillowsWeeping

Added a bunch of the critters from Savage Seas, and the dragon in Kingdom of Halta. Also added Thousand-Forged Dragons, being that they are just too damned cool to ignore. -- Stuff. Blaque

Noting on the recent tidey-up by Ikselam, I'm actually not sure on Bloody Rain. Despite all the pyrotechics and stuff, he also does things rather Air IMHO, like turning into lightning and the lot. But his general behavior I geuss would do that I gess. Stuff. Blaque.

Check page 7 of the Halta book.\\ _Ikselam

Good call with the dragon archive.  :) I love dragons, and I'm always looking for an excuse to put them into my games. Keep it up. - Morpheus

I added one of my own Lesser Elemental Dragons (Apsu). I'll have his description up soon...along with the other Regional Coordinators of Elementals of the Realm. - Seiraryu

I added Lesser Elemental Dragons of Wood (Sirrush and Nidhogar) and Earth (O-Goncho and Kalseru). Detailed information on them follow soon. - Jiba

Has anyone noticed Slacstag, a Lesser Elemental Dragon of Crystal? (E:tAu, Page 177-178) I thinks he's pretty mean. - sssssz

Showing the Known Autochthonian Dragons, cause we need to shows them some love. I also plan to add a few custom dragons in the mix a little later - ArabianNinja

Hmm, the name of the forest fire dragon is Bloody Sky, not Bloody Rain. Rain doesn't make sense, cuz he's a fire elemental dragon, not water! Or even air! Jeez louise! Glad I caught it years after the book was released. --UncleChu
