A dragon is a reptile-like creature, usually winged, with magical or unusual abilities. Dragons are broken down into several classifications. True dragons are dragons which increase in power by age categories (wyrmling to great wyrm). Lesser dragons do not improve in age categories and may lack all of the abilities of true dragons. Examples of lesser dragons include dragon turtles and wyverns.

There are many races of dragons, each of which is closely tethered to a different element. Some dragons (particularly metallic dragons) have two different kinds of breath, usually a lethal one (fire, ice, acid, electricity, etc.) and another that is typically non-lethal (paralysis, repulsion, confusion, etc.).

True dragons are divided into two main categories: chromatic dragons, such as green and black dragons, which are evil-aligned; metallic dragons, such as gold and silver dragons, which are good.

Three other families exist; catastrophic, planar and scourge.

In addition, there are other sub-species of true dragons that don't fit into the three main categories. For example, mercury and steel dragons would seem to be metallic dragons, but are considered to be outside of the main family of metallic dragons because of various biological differences.

The mysterious gem dragons also exist, but only as constructs and slaves of the Pyramid.


Rise of the Runelords

In 1376, dragons (especially blues) all over the Wheel of Fire begin hearing the call of Neqoza, feeding into their greed.



Dragons often take on servitors, known as Kith. Kith act as servants, guards, proxies and heralds for the dragon they have sworn to protect. Kith often share the interests and temperments of their masters. Kith are often offspring with non-dragons or otherwise related to their master.

Not all dragons have kith.


Dragons that walk amidst other races generally do not give their real names, except to those they fully trust. It is said that one who knows a dragon’s name will be able to command that dragon’s spirit. The name, therefore is a guarded secret.
