A Talk About Dragons

I just got through a really interesting Reddit post here.

…and it re-sparked a point that I have been trying to make with D’N’DUI for a while now. I feel that in the past, dragons have gone from giant monsters and a thing that you should be afraid of, to just another monster you can fight. In 4th edition Dungeons and Dragons, there is a type of dragon you can fight at FIRST LEVEL. Now, i found this chart of some dinosaurs:

and you see that red one that dwarfs the human? That will be the size of most of the elder dragons in my campaign. Epic dragons like Gygax, and a few others will be even larger, with much broader heads.

There is a trick to making things cool, especially in D&D, and that is rarity. Cool things aren’t a dime a dozen. Nobody has gotten a “cool” rub on tattoo. When you have a big monster, make it big, and when you have a mean monster make it mean.

Will the party ever kill a full dragon? Maybe, I guess we can only see.

 

– Marco out.
