>the dragon is an awkward nerd
>>38017627Stop posting these kinds of threads. I was told to stop when I did it, and I obeyed.
>>38017667yeah, you might have pushed an excuse me thread off the board. such a loss.
>>38018402I love this.
>>38018459I'm serious here. I used to post topics as an excuse to post pictures back in 2013, but I got told off enough to stop. For that, I'm grateful.'Excuse me, commisar' style threads are similar in nature, even with the 40k excuse.
>>38017884I need more *clink* in my life...
Math is for cool dragons only
I read that comic too XD
>>38018569>I used to post topics as an excuse to post picturesWhy didn't you just start threads for interesting/useful/cool /tg/-related pictures and dump them there ? You don't have to use weird techniques and excuses on an anonymous image board.
>the dragonborn is an awkward nerd
>>38019204Stretches my disbelief too much.
>>38019397She just wanted to go to Winterhold to further her studies.
>>38019478I'm sorry, I feel like being able to strike people dead with your voice would engender a bit of self-confidence.
>>38017627Why is the dragon sitting on the book? Turning the page like that seems wrong.Wouldnt it be better if he sat in front of it and used his tail to turn the lower edge of the page?
>>38017627>A hoard of tomes.
>>38018601"I gots to be accountin' for my horde. You think I'm gonna pay some human to do that shit for me? Nah, homie. Money over everything."
>>38017627I once had a gold dragoness NPC that was like that.A complete bookworm, a pacifist, with a soft spot for things that looks cute (protip: when you're a fucking dragon, a lot of things looks cute compared to you).As a side note, due her doing a pact with the fey deity where she got immortality and access to all the books in the multiverse as long she worked as a librarian for that deity, and the fact that dragons keeps growing 'till they are alive in that setting...she was rather fuckhuge in her natural form. So, even if a complete nerd and a pacifist, she wasn't someone to mess with.
>>38019739Compared to other dragons, she was probably out of shape.
>>38019991But with dragons it's quite literally "age before beauty".A fit healthy dragon would still get it's shit pushed in by an out of shape dragon of the next age class.
>>38018402>dat tub of ice creamGets me every time
>>38020077And power=attractiveness for them.
>>38019991Yeah, she kinda was. And with no combat experience whatsoever (well, she hunted when she was younger, and then preferred staying in her cave sending kobolds to fetch her something while she was reading), but virtually speaking...she was several "age categories" past great wyrm.On another note, though, she passed a lot of her time in half elf (or elf, depending on her mood) shape. The bigger you are, the harder it is to flip pages of a book.
>>38020247>infinite age>no level 3 magic item solutionpls
>>38020271Hm? What "level 3 magic item solution" ?(speaking of which, she always worn a ring of sustenance)
>>38020077>>38020101Great, now I'm picturing a plot where a queen sends out dragon hunters to 'avenge' her late husband. Dragoness reveals that consensual snuu-snuu is what slew the king(fat, out of shape, but still holds a vast swath of land in his grip), and the Queen wants to snuff out the possibility of half-dragon bastards hungering for their birthright.
>>38017627>And his name is Ottakon>And you have to go on adventures to destroy massive golems made by the evil cabal of wizards using spirits to control the minds of the kingdoms to pursue profit through an economy founded on perpetual proxy wars and weapons development.
>>38020317not sure what to think.......
>>38020430I do. We side with the dragonlady.
>>38020299I know some article in a Dragon magazine had gloves to allow a massive creature to manipulate tiny things without penalty, explicitly for dragons.But if you're beyond-great-wyrm, anything listed in a rulebook should basically be a cantrip for you.>>38020317I've no idea how you made that mental leap.
>>38020583Oh. That. Well, it was also less about flipping the pages and more about reading them too. It's hard to read fine print when your eye is bigger than the book itself. So, she just did a simple shapeshifting, and call it a day. Less problematic for anyone, and she had more odds to have someone to chat pleasantly with , without risking to accidentally crush them.
>>38020077I'm imagining a horribly obese, millennia old gold dragon gasping between words as she's telling people where the history section is. And some young bronze dragon looking at her says "Damn, she's hot as fuck".
>>38020634I don't think dragons get obese.But they certainly do get stronger, smarter, tougher, hardier, and more dangerous with age. All of which essentially add up to "more badass".
>>38020634>A librarian fetish is formed.
>>38017667Not him but what kinds of threads?>>38018569>post topics as an excuse to post pictures ... but I got told off enough to stopI have literally never seen that happen, are you sure that's what you were being told to stop doing?
Dragons and nerds are both arrogant the key difference is that nerds are undeservedly. A dragon can fucking kill you with little to no concern for consequences or repercussions.Pseudodragons, fairly dragons and other puny things are not dragons.
>>38020583My brain is a terrible engine, Anon. A MAGICAL ENGINE!Either way, I think it'd make a decent plot for a game, be it lewd or chaste.
>>38020583If you to get technical, the dex penalty for size increase whether it be due to magic or monster advancement is (among other things) supposed to represent the difficulty from manipulating things smaller than youDragons keep dex 10 no matter what size they end up, meaning that even great wyrms are able to manipulate human sized objects as easily as an average person is
>>38020840Some creep was posting threads with robot animals in the OP week after week. This was back in late 2013.
>>38020854So fairly dragons are only fairly dragon-y?
>>38021788Depends on who you ask, a fair dragon might compromise on the point but an unfair dragon would probably say fairly dragons aren't dragon enough and only a very dragon counts. Meanwhile the ferry dragon doesn't have an opinion but will give you a ride down river and don't bother asking the ferrier dragon unless your horse needs shoes. but if you have some time to spare you could spend the day out with the country fair dragon
>>38020854>thinking the fairy dragon cannot kill youA 3 inch magic murderlizard is just as deadly as a 30 foot one.
>>38023239Well, only one of them can swallow me whole as an attacknot counting magical realm
>>38023239This reminds me of a question I thought of the other day - when a dragon transforms into a human-sized creature do they keep the hardness of hide and strength of a dragon?
>>38022910You forgot to mention the fare dragon, that bills people passing by.
>>38019625That book is going to fall off the table and take the dragon with it and you're worrying about how to turn the pages?good man (or other)
>>38023813That would depend on the setting and the rules native dragons follow.I'd say that dragons would lose their draconic advantages when polymorphed into a humanoid creature, but only weaken them if they just shrink down to the size of other humanoids.
>>38019291WW is so good.
>>38023813Yes, but using a dragon's strength it in the weak human form can cause the illusion to shatter and you'll start seeing scales ad what not at stress points. So if a dragon in human form can hit in the eye by a lightning bolt, you'd see a peak of his reptilian eye before he reconstituted the spell.This is headcannon, I just thinks it's cool when a PCs throw a fireball at the mysterious merchant they think is swindling them and then, oh shit, it's a dragon.
>>38017627>In modern fantasy settings, young dragons are prone to falling in with /tg/ games because they love collecting and painting their minatures, buying (or looting) models, gathering lore and splat books from all their favorite franchises>The most venerable in the new "Nerdy Dragon Generation" has entire sci-fi movie sets as part of his horde>He has even tracked down EVER SINGLE LOST PART of Robby the robot and REBUILT HIM to his original, The Forbidden Planet make>Do you envy these dragons, /tg/?
>>38024263Yes because their the hoarders that are making old Mtg cards ridiculously expensive.Its these fuckers that sleep on hundreds of black lotuses and use Tarmogoyfs as toilet paper.
>>38024263Meanwhile /k/ is complaining about dragons buying up all the .22
>>38024473Don't forget Russian Dragons owning all the pre-War Mosin Nagants by now.>>38024329Man, now I have an idea for an urban fantasy campaign where one nerdy dragon asks the help of a group of urban adventurers to break into his "next door neighbor's lair" (see also: next state over) and 'save' the collectables his buddy insists on destroying to try to boost the value of the surviving copies of a collectable.>"This is unacceptable, humans! A collectable is a collectable not because its rare, but because it's beloved! Each piece of my collection, even the repeats, I cherish them because they are fragments of an era in time, distilled into physical form, and he thinks he can just burn these things for to ensure he remains the owner of the sole copies. Is it not disgusting?"
>>38023520>Dragon - magical>Fairy - magical>Fairy dragon doubly magical>Not able to swallow you whole and show no signs of your fate
>>38024986>Fight fairy dragon rather than full sized dragon>Think it'll be safer>Beats the shit out of you and somehow crams you down it's gullet
>>38023896It's an excellent way to build a hoard afterall.
>>38024105Wot's that from?
>>38025055Man, that'd be the worst. You'd be dead AND you'd feel stupid.
>>38023969>>38024111I was thinking being able to turn into a humanoid, but still keeping dragon strength, toughness, endurance and skin hardness (possibly being a bit denser than a human too - so they're noticeably heavier than they should be) If it was a rare ability, even for dragons, it'd be good for both surprise and making legendary tales.I like the idea of the eyes giving the game away, and might extend it to teeth as well.It might be useful for a less antagonistic dragon, being capable of interacting fairly easily with human-ish sized people
>>38017627>Silver female dragon is a giant nerd, may wear glasses, and is awkward.I found my new fantasy waifu.
>>38025236Dota2 comicsits the new int hero
>>38019503Or make you more afraid to talk on account of an irrational fear that you'll kill someone.
>>38020676There IS an obese dragon in greyhawk, actually. A black dragoness who loves eating so much that she actually beat draconic metabolism and became a fatass. She is actually proud of this fact.
>>38025734Makes me wonder: with all the effects various other shout words do, I wonder what Dragon Tongue for "Hi" does?Maybe it calls some edible animals over so you can sit down, crack open a cow and have a bite with a friend?
>>38026125IIRC, Yol, the word for fire was used as an introduction.Or maybe I'm remembering that scene from skyrim wrong.
>>38026180When you first meet Paarthurnax, right?
>>38025791Well, hey, humans can be proud of being fat. It's not unreasonable to assume dragons, with even less social mooring, are going to be immune to it.
>>38027221I suppose when said black dragoness needs to eat more meals a day than the average dragon to keep up her obesity, it can be seen as a point of pride to be able to afford such things.Nevermind if she ever wants to become fit again she'd probably just need to skip her in-between meals for the next few days.Fucking dragons, man. They would fucking suck in modern times>"Hey, /fit/, how come you pussy-ass humans can't get a body like mine? Oh, yeah! BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT A DRAGON!"
>>38027277If dragons existed in modern times, I'd bet you every single one of them would get marriage proposals, be dating, or get laid within the first 24 hours. Why you ask? Because dragons.
>>38027449Fuck you and your fucking dragons
>>38027449More like "Because humans", amirite?
>>38024986so basically this, but in dragon shape.
>>38025352>You'd be dead AND you'd feel stupid.Going by the values in the draconomicon and working backwards, a fairy dragon's swallow whole attack would deal at most 1d3 or 1d2 damage a round, so you'd probably just feel stupid for quite a while as it flutters around
>>38025791I have the desire to know more. Got a link to anything about this?
god damn this thread, now i have the urge to look up dragon porn
>>38028801You don't have a folder?
>>38027959I'm sorry, but no. It's in one of the draconomicons. Either in 3.5 or 4e.
>>38028831i never save any, paranoid
>>38027199Paathunax WAS an adorable, awkward nerd dragon. At least he came off that way to me.
>>38017627I've always wanted to do this. I had an idea for a dragon who kidnapped princesses, who would later return home claiming to have been rescued by heroes. In actuality, the dragon did really kidnap those princesses, but kept them well-accommodated and only kept them around long enough to create an identical magical construct of the princess. Once the process was done, the dragon would send the princess home with orders to tell others that she was saved by heroes... or else. The magical constructs were part of the dragon's gallery, of which he was very proud. Dragon collects princesses the way some people collect bishoujo figurines. He really loves his collection. Rumor has it that another couple of dragons do the same thing with famous warlords, kings and heroes, using their constructs to play elaborate war games.
>>38029092... Stealing this.
>>38028898Nerdy? Huh.I thought he was kinda reclusive and pretty bro for a dragon. I was certainly offended by the Blades wanting him dead. But not nerdy.
>>38018402Poor scaley dude. He's such a joyful looking dragon. That fourth panel makes me wanna hug him. …I'd be bros with a nerdy dragon. I like the idea.
>>38029092I had one who hoarded like normal but to special interest to weapons and heraldry. Liked taking armaments, armor, and standards/flags of defeated opponents/enemies/kingdoms.Kind of like an archaeologist or hobbyist, but I always thought it was more like say, an entomologist.
>>38028876Anyone else go access to your computer?
>>38029423There's nothing wrong with cosmic paranoia. Trust no one, not even yourself. Even if you live alone, you hide that shit. Or create a Red Herring porn folder.
>>38029262It was because he stumbled over words, and realized her was sperging out a few times, mostly. I might just be misremembering, though.
>>38029423His ISP can see what's being downloaded/viewed. Anyone tapping his line. Anyone tapping broader lines, (say, the NSA listening in at trunk cables.) Google analytics if he's logged into any google account. Anyone who wanders through his house for any reason. Shall I continue?
>>38029537>Or create a Red Herring porn folder.Mah man.of course, the more ubiquitous the tactic gets the less effective it can be.
>>38029567Thats why my folder is somewhat incriminating. Sometimes you have to take a small hit to save from a big loss
>>38029537>>38029567>>38029544Meh, there's really no way to hide yourself on line nowadays, and that's why I often don't bother with online privacy, as things are now the easiest way to not have your shit be seen is to simply bank on you not being interesting enough to notice. And trust me, we have a lot of data to sort through, unless you've already done something to be flagged odds are it'll be years before your shit gets looked at if at all
>>38024473>>38024263>Music Nerd Dragon has every Tin Pan Alley recording>Book Nerd Dragon (the asshole of the bunch) has the only copy of the Winds of Winter, just to fuck with everyone and say he has it.>Trekkie Dragon has all the Redshirts from the original series encased in glass and stuffed

>>38029684I actually dont give a shit about people online knowing. My porn folder is synced on cloud, I dont give a shit. But if anyone for whatever touches my computer physically, its fight or flight.
>>38029832My computer is literally one of the only things I'd fight someone over, not cause I don't want what's on it to be seen, just cause it's mine and I don't trust others around my precious
>>38029893I feel you. My computer is like my baby. Other people's are better in many ways, mine might crap out or develop a ton of defects and may break down. It may be horrible in every way, but if someone tries to touch it, ill break his arm.Honestly whenever someone tries to use my computer, ill be standing there staring at them counting down all the myriad of ways my ruse could come crashing down around me, like trying to save an image and it defaulting to the last place i probably saved porn to. After that, they'll look at me, and I'll look to the knife
>>38029984>computer nerd dragon
>>38029423no, but i just dont trust myself enough not to fuck something up, and end up uploading something to FB or something
>>38020413I might do Forgotten Realms Metal Gear for my first campaign
>>38030048Ive had some bad experiences with dragons in the past so I take offense to thatbad... bad dragons.
>>38030135I just erased that section of the internet from the memory and you just had to bring it up again!
>Come into thread expecting some interesting discussion on dragons>"So the dragonnessssss (said with a lingering s to make it sound sexier) would want to eat a lot, keeping her nice and plump! Truly a sign of her wealth and power [pants.]"Why.
>>38030994How does a dragon nerd compare to a regular dragon? What aspects of it make it "nerdy"? What would it add to the story or setting?What do you think, anon?
>>38030994Are you making a request?'cause I don't know what posts you're complaining about. There's nothing like that.Maybe you're projecting?
>>38030994Would you rather us talk about spelunking?
>>38030994I looked her up and it was just a normal dragon kind of thing where she just subjugated a nation of tribals. Kind of normal stuff.
>>38031022It's just a dragon that has the same likes, interests, and mannerisms as you.
>>38031101A dragon that had my own personality would be awkward as shit.
>>38031246A dragon that just wants to stay inside the house and play smash bros all day.Might be cool.
>>38031838>http://mangafox.me/manga/the_dragon_next_door/c001/1.htmlI have a bad feeling about this.
>>38017884Imagine how ripe that dragon's virginity must be. She's going to have a fuuun night.
>>38032194Why yes, it is my fetish, thank you for asking.
>>38031977I've read chapter 1 so far. It's a Korean comic, and there's no NSFW stuff yet. It's 2 guys too instead of a guy and girl, so I highly doubt there'll be X-rated stuff.
>>38032370Yeah, I'm on chapter 13.Why the fuck is this so entertaining.
>>38031838The dragon sister is pretty hot.
>>38017627In Dragon 313, they presented a series of Draconic Disorders, basically a series of 5 physical or mental breakdowns that dragons could experience. One of them, Riddling, was basically Dragon-Autism. The Dragon basically ran into questions even its powerful mind couldn't answer, and the years it spent turning these thoughts over and over and over in its mind have changed it: It gains the Lawful Subtype, it gets a +6 to Int, a -4 to Wis, and uses Int instead of Cha for magic, and becomes vulnerable to maze spells, and riddles. Specifically, if you beat it in an opposed knowledge check (representing answering a riddle), it becomes fascinated for 1d10 rounds.It can only be cured by someone answering enough riddles in a day. However, each riddle answered adds a 5% chance the dragon goes berserk and starts murdering everyone, while still bellowing out his next puzzle or riddle.Answering the last one forces the dragon to make a Will Save. If it succeeds, it becomes a normal, well-adjusted dragon. If it fails, its mind collapses, and it loses sapience. (Int drops to 1. Forever.)
>>38032965So it becomes The Riddler, only it's actually a threat instead of a criminal that is like every other criminal, only he wears green and is easier to catch.
>>38033012One of the adventure hooks for riddled dragons directly compares them to "the crazy villain in a comic book or a detective story", noting that they almost never just RAID nearby villages, no. They have to leave cryptic warnings, and clues of their targets.I also like that, if you keep outsmarting it, there's an increasing chance the dragon spergs out and goes FULL CAPSLOCK .The other disorders are also kind of cool. One is basically Dragon Insomnia (which, for creatures that can sleep for centuries, is hellish), another is basically bulimia: The dragon gorges itself, even compared to other dragons, unable to stop eating until it's consumed an insane amount of food, but then burns off that fuel with excessive breath weapon use and elemental power literally pouring off of it. Then there's the Spellhoarder, who gets obsessed with magic, and his scales turn into scrolls, and the Nameless, who went full paranoid, and realized NO ONE CAN USE MY NAME AGAINST ME IF NO ONE REMEMBERS IT. It's right, but destroying that connection also destroys its sense of self, and its ability to do magic.
>>38033168>The dragon gorges itself, even compared to other dragons, unable to stop eating until it's consumed an insane amount of food, but then burns off that fuel with excessive breath weapon use and elemental power literally pouring off of it. Must be hell getting ready for the Miss Dragon of the universe pageant.
