    Mongrel Dragons, how do they work?

    Seriously, dragon-on-dragon sex has a 100% chance of producing offspring. What happens when 2 dragons of different colors shack up?

    I've always wondered this myself. Why would an evil dragon ruin the power inherent in dragons by breeding with hum,anoids when another dragon, even of a different color, would be far more suitable?

    The result will look like the offspring of a dragon of one of the [input] options, but may function like the other [input], or the same.

    That's right. A white dragon that breathes fire. Adventurers, are you feeling lucky?

    So.....Black Dragon father + Green Dragon mother =

    Green Dragon with some Black Dragon traits? I think it would have the spell like abilities of the Black Dragon, but would replace the Green Dragon's spell like abilities or would it get both? does it get a stronger breath weapon?

    Also, in a case where the dragons do not have the same breath weapon, does it get the full breath of the father and not the mother, or the full breath of the mother and a weaker breath of the father?

    One or the other, along with resistances, was my understanding. IE, if a red and blue were to shack up (pepsi dragon!), the egg would be (red or blue), and the dragon would look like a (red or blue), but it would only have the breath weapons and fire resistances of either (red or blue).

    Meaning that if the parents had a spat in the lair, they might accidentally off their offspring. (Lightning- fire resistance, no lightning resistance,- dead eggs)

    The best logic I ever heard for a Mongrel Dragon was that there was a group of dragon cultists who believed that they could breed the perfect dragon. Predictably, things wen horribly wrong and so now there are about six or seven ultra-powerful dragons wandering around fucking shit up.

    Also they killed Bahamut. Centuries of selective breeding removed whatever influence bahamut had over them. The one we fought had the opportunity to become a god in his place, and he gave a modification of the lex luthor line of "Do you have any idea how much power i'd have to give up to become a god?"

    Best. Campaign. Ever.

    Here's a thought: for creating one, just randomize via percentage dice what traits it has. IE 60% red 40% blue, lean the stats+abilities this way.

    Alternatively, make hybrids have a 50/50 chance to either suck (weaker than either parent) or to be "greater than the sum of their parts."

    Blue-white and green-black are the combos that most intrigue me. Blue-Red could be fun too.

    Or a Elder Red Wyrm rapes a captize Young Adult Gold. Ultimate fire-based dragon w/ parent issues, anyone?

    Just halve the breath weapon into each type, or roll for which type it is (for trolling your players, make it so its always the reverse of what it would appear to be).

    I don't really buy all that loldrama crap. If good and evil and neutral humans will fuck each other and have relationships, good and evil and neutral dragons will do the same. Like, you aren't going to see many Silver/Red pairings but as long as there isn't that level of rivalry it might well be possible. Hell, you could have a Red Dragon that prefers Bahamut's lawful vibe to Tiamat, even if he doesn't dig the good deeds stuff. Another religious dragon, a metallic following Bahamut comes along and even though they should dislike each other they enjoy speaking with a fellow centuries-old academic of Bahamutian scripture. Cue dickings.

    I like this...let's say, for example, that a CE Red has his way with a LG Gold.

    The resulting dragon is gold, like the mother, but displays traits of red dragons, be it an inherent greed, or generally chaotic tendencies.

    So, you'd take the species and the good vs. evil axis of the mother, and some traits and the law vs. chaos axis of the father.

    LG Gold Dragon Female + CE Red Dragon Male = CG Gold Dragon.

    Plot of my current game has mongrels in it.
    One of the bosses of this alliance of evil is a Half Fiend Elder Wyrm White.

    He's got a female Young Adult Gold magically chained up in his lair, and he's trying to breed an heir. He's hoping for a male Half Gold White with the Fiendish template, but due to a couple arbitrary rules of dragon genetics I made up, he's getting female Half Gold Whites, and male Half White Golds. Of which less then half have any Fiendish traits. He's killing the males, and releasing the female to fend for themselves.

    Reason he's part of the alliance to get this Lich Fleshwarper to help him get his heir with some form a ritual.

    Sand Dragons (Brown, I think, is the colour?) are good for the evil-but-not-antagonistic vibe. They have like a collector mania throughout their whole race. It might eat sentients for food but the reason it contacted the party is because it really wants that antique teapot the Duke just bought.

    Your answer, it is here. Dragons are so iconic that new species of them are never really frowned upon, so they get introduced all the fricking time. Which is actually okay, because they are traditionally under CR'd by a good 2 or 3 points dragons can almost always be constructed to be uniquely interesting in some respect.

    Like, the black dragon. I mean, I guess this isn't common enough to be like a shared DM experience but you know, you're just kind of rocking your first or second 3.5e campaign. You're not totally savvy with every splatbook yet or whatever. And the first time you throw a black dragon at your players, particularly at low level? They will HATE you. It's invigorating.

    The one dragon encounter that really, really frustrated my players was when they organised a militia fleet to take down some Drow pirates. The Drow had dragons, they knew that. But you pair two fully aquatic acid-breathing dragons with the fact the players' are all on board a ship... oh man they will never forgive you for hitting them with what is effectively a draconic submarine.

    Purple, Yellow and Orange dragons also exist. They're from the various Dragon Magazine supplements over the years. From Dragon Magazine we also get the Ferrous Dragons.

    The purple, yellow and orange dragons can easily be found in the Dragon Compendium and the Ferrous Dragons are in issue 356.

    The Orange, Yellow and Purple dragons are interesting because they could be mixed if you like. The explanation in the magazine is that they're three of the dragons created from Tiamat's CE analog sister who she killed in the clutch along with her NE brother Voral.

    I always figured it would just be half the parents and they would get a new breath weapon thats just sort of a mix of both.

    Red and White dragons are not immune to fire or cold but have a strong resistance to both. The breath weapon would be steam, capable of breathing a cone of very hot burning steam or simply releasing a cloud of harmless steam to give it an edge.

    Its coloring is mostly grey with white redish undersides. I could see it start combat by releasing a cloud of steam similar to Obscuring Mist and then attack the party while using the mist as cover.

    I'm in a bit of a rush right now.....but is the total number of canon dragon species equal to some power of 2? If it is, that power is the number of generations of carefully controlled breeding it would take to create a dragon that is an equal mix of all dragon species (AKA THE ONE DRAGON TO END THEM ALL)

    One thing I always wanted to throw at my players were Linnorms. Their like dragons, but horrible inbred primordial offshoots. Their bodies are serpentine, they only have forearm appendages, sometimes have 2 heads, no wings but can fly, and sickly matted scales and hair. I always kinda liked the idea of these things lurking down in the deep, where not even the Shadow Dragons would venture.

    Really, my biggest problem with dragons is lairs and territories. They are

    >predators; highly terratorial
    >loners; not given to groups (except bronze, and then only sort of)
    >and fliers, able to cover vast swathes of ground in a single day.

    How... How many dragons can you fit in a fantasy world? I mean, to have a reasonable population, I would think that every single square inch of a continent would have to be part of some dragons territory.

    The agreed stereotypical dragon is a giant flying lizard that collects gold, shits magic, breathes fire, lives for centuries, and snatches princesses for un-elaborated reasons. The only way to kill a dragon is if no more then 5 adventurers (less is better) marches up and slays it in a heroic effort.

    Extortion sounds reasonable. I mean, there's the classic ransom, some dimmer (or more traditionally-minded dragons) might try using it as leverage for getting a kingdom if they're up for that. Alternately, if they're busy running legitimate enterprises remotely (shape shiftan!) they might be using it to go, "Okay, you can have her back if you drop all tariffs on overland export/import companies.

    Princesses have sophistry. Dragons desire educated conversation. Dragons chat them up, while dickering over ransom or whatever as an excuse to keep them until they aren't interesting anymore; any actual loot or ransom they get is just a neat bonus.

    Believe it or not, I like the way the FR dealt with dragons in terms of land grabs.
    Sure they used to have some epic spanning empires under their individual controls, but then the elves got uppity and created a mythal that caused dragons within a randomly determined area to randomly go BERSERKER every so many years.
    Many of whom ended up getting slain when unable to use their magic to their aid, and with all of their armies turning against them for roasting innocents alive.
    As a consequence most dragons have learned to stay out of human regions just in case they snap and get slaughtered by the vassals which serve them.
    The side-effect being that the EPIC (CR 60+) dragons of the realms who have developed immunity to this epic magic love dicking around with mortals under the guise of old sages and such.

    I think that was at young adult, and adult is when they're most likely to actually invest some time in raising their spawn. (hatchlings? Children? Whatever.) Which, if I recall their ages right, would mean that the 'itch' whoeveritwas was asking about begins at the end of Juvenile/beginning of young adult.

    You know, I think I just realized something. In the Draconomicon, it mentioned in passing that younger dragons will often claim territory adjacent to an older dragon of the opposite gender. Younger dragon gets (some) protection, an example to learn from, and some guidance. Older dragon gets a steady supply of poon.

    Which isn't as odd as it sounds, because from what I understand, dragons grow old, but don't get elderly. So despite it being 'Old', 'Ancient'. 'Ancient Wyrm', or whatever, for it's age category, it's just getting bigger and more badass as opposed to wrinkly and decrepit.

    To provoke a war would work as well, if the dragon could disguise that (s)he took the princess in the first place, or blame [other nation] for hiring hir to do it. (Or 'princes' according to what looks like a typo. Why do dragons go after princesses anyway? Do female dragons kidnap princes?)

    I mean, the another option is they want to set up some half-dragon spawn on the throne, or give a royal bloodline sorcerous tendencies. Or, I suppose, they think seducing royalty is a fast track to the throne. (Hell, they might even utilize illusion magic and shapeshifting to 'rescue' [royalty] from themselves, creating a solid "Adventurer, saved princess, awarded the princess and half the kingdom." personage.)

    The Dracorage Mythal.

    Grand History (And Dragons of Faerun) explain that the high elves using the epic magic that they regularly flaunted around (and almost destroyed all of elven civilization and the world with) created it to fuck over the dragon empires of old. And up until the very end of 3.5e fluff it was still active, causing random areas of land (miles upon miles) to be affected by it if a certain comet was too close to Toril.
    Towards the end of 3.5e they got rid of it by saying that Samaster (in Lich form) made the mythal his phylactery and when it was destroyed so did the effect...
    Which makes no sense if you look at some of the older books that mention Mythals to be creations of pure arcane energy that can only be destroyed by epic level dispelling effects by immensely powerful casters.
    Oh and making a mythal into a phylactery shouldn't work since just touching a mythal auto-disintegrates you (no save, no immunities).

    In short, Elves made a giant magic artifact that later writers retconned out of existence because they don't like the thought of dragons being unplayable/prone to go into massive rages/etc

    The 4e draconomicon has a short section on plychromatic dragons. The same principle could conceivably be applied to something other than two chromatic dragons breeding as well. Taking the mechanical suggestion into another edition would require some tweaking, but may be doable.

    >Sometimes chromatic dragons display abilities from two or more different draconic lines. A white dragon might have a tinge of fire in its breath, while a blue dragon might exude the poison normally expelled by a green. These so-called “polychromatic” wyrms are said to be particularly favored by Tiamat, since in a way they share her multicolored nature. To represent these polychromatic dragons in your game, choose one of the bloodlines described below and apply its effects and benefits to a dragon that is not of the bloodline’s color. If you give a young or older dragon a bloodline that turns it into a polychromatic dragon, it is also entitled to gain the power associated with that bloodline in exchange for a power or ability it already had. It’s not possible for a dragon to have an alternative power from the previous section as well as a polychromatic power from this section if both powers require the replacement of the same power or ability. For instance, a white dragon that has exchanged frightful presence for glacial armor can also gain the red bloodline. But it cannot also take the inferno wave power, since that power also replaces frightful presence.

    So do both dragons polymorph into humanoids to have sex or do they do it as is?

    Because two giant dragons boning would probably cause massive damage to the surrounding area.

    Hell that could be a plot thread.

    The ability to breed with damn near anything IS the dragon's greatest power. A male dragon can create an army by boinking everything in sight. Humans, animals, other kinds of monsters...

    A female dragon can raise half-dragon offspring to be loyal servants and soldiers. need an army? send half-dragon/orcs to take over the local tribes. need a bodyguard? surprise the PCs with a band of fire-breathing ogres at the entrance to the lair.

    In one of my campaigns the party got a taste for dragon-blood, and wound up killing a lot of them, and cooking them as well as using their parts for cool stuff (it was not discussed that eating the flesh of a sentient creature is pretty evil until much later).

    Anywho, to put a stop to this I dropped info about a mated pair of a black and a blue, in a swamp near the base of a mountain. They killed the dragons, and then discovered the eggs.

    Because of the different requirements for egg habitat listed in the 3.5 Draconomicon, I figured it would be difficult for such offspring to actually develop enough to hatch. I decided that out of 4 eggs, only 1 turned out viable.

    The outcome was a cute little black/blue dragon we named Bruise, and adopted (another party favorite past time). I worked him as having both a burrow and swim speed, the slower of the flight speeds, a mix of ability scores and added abilities, and he breathed a line of electrically charged acid.

    Also put a stop to the dragon hunting, since the party felt bad for murdering Bruise's parents. I also had them find a magical music box on which the male blue had recorded a love poem for the female black. My party weren't sociopaths, so demonstrating sentience and emotions in their victims actually worked, as planned.

    Dude. Wings.

    They probably have fantastic aerial sex, and buzz villages either just to show off or if one of the is feeling particularly exhibitionistic.

    Bronze, of course, can do it underwater.

    I think there was a story waaaay back when of how a group of adventurers were working a port city powerstruggle between a plain-nasty-evil slaver, an evil elven necromancer, and the ostensible captain of the city guard who happened to be a bronze dragon in the alternate form of a human. The PCs eventually managed to convince the necromancer and the Bronze to ally to get rid of the slaver, then convinced them to marry to stabalize the city; the necromancer thought she'd easily outlive a pitiful human, and the bronze figured he could keep the necromancer in check if he was her 'husband'. (Friends close, enemies closer, etc.)

    Several years later, then end up coming back through the city and finding out that not only has it worked fantastically, but they're now actually legitimately in love with each other, and all upset because they're actually trying to conceive a child, but are failing. It all clicks into place while they're staying with this 'royal family', and assassins attack. One of the party members witnesses the necromancer turn into a blue dragon and fry some of the assassins. (Before reverting to her alternate form.)

    They didn't want to interfere, but one of the party members really thought the bronze was a total BRO-nze, and that he ought to know. He wasn't happy to hear it, but he believed them, then went to confront Necromancer. (Wish I remembered their names. Then again, just being a story on /tg/, it might not have had any.)

    Cue shouting match where she claims this shouldn't change anything, he gets all upset that she didn't tell her, she accuses him of taking his impotence out on her, and it rapidly deteriorates. It ends up with the two of them in dragon form, fighting, at least, until the PCs figure out that they aren't so much fighting as engaging in extremely violent hatesex, with lots of lightning. Feeling kind of awkward, they leave.

    I think it sort of ended there, but one detail I remember was that all the lightning scoring on the walls was written off as 'another assassination attempt'.

    Instead of 8d4 damage, I'd say 4d4, but any target that fails the save is immobilized beneath the candy corn, and has to make a DC X Str check to free themselves. Failure to do so invokes another 4d4 crushing damage the following round, then repeat the cycle as needed.

    Also, the dragon should get at least 6 attacks per round, since it is likely hopped up on a ton of sugar.

    Hm. I can agree with Improved Initiative, but I would argue on a special rule that the Candy Corn Dragon has it multiple times. And yeah, candy corn is light, so maybe instead of more crushing damage, you're tossed about by the flowing sea of candy corn rolling you around, so 4d4 the 1st round, save or make Str check; fail the check and take 2d4 basing damage, and lose initiative for the next round.

    I really don't know why you feel the need to have specific secondary damage. Save against being tossed around, don't know if that'd be str or dex, or get knocked back 30 feet or so. If you hit a wall, you'll take damage.

    Realistic, perhaps, but it's important to remember that when making homebrew for a theatrical system like D&D, convenience usually needs to take priority over realism. The rules for being waist-deep in liquid after getting candy corn'd is totally good, but building up would be more or less left up to the DM, as far as I'm concerned.

    Not quite, as you could simply say the dragon breathes 25 cubic feet of candy corn or so every breath. There are already spells and items that do the same with water, so it won't be much different. Say that for the first round the candy is piled up around the dragons targets (implementing the waist-high rules), but after that it has flowed into a flat layer covering the floor. There would be little need for most DMs to keep track of the candy corn beyond the 1-round piling up effect, but for narrative use (like say, the dragon trying to fill something with candy or suffocate the party in a pit) the rules framework would be there.

    I guess it would depend on which parent they take after. Either they've got an interest in Order, but not much of one in Doing the Right Thing (unless it's right as in lawful,) or they've got an interest in Doing the Right Thing, but they're too impulsive and brash to be lawful.

    Though I sort of dislike alignment being a genetic trait. That always seemed really silly to me.

    I still love pathfinder's dragons revisited for involving the gold dragons trying to convert the green dragons to good, as the green are clearly intelligent enough to see why this would be a smart option.
    Long story short, it ends with the green dragons going "just as planned" having stolen all of the knowledge/libraries/etc of the gold dragons and almost successfully causing a genocide against them.

    I'm personally a fan of the draconic psychoses presented in Dragon 313, most especially the Spellhoarding one. Gives the dragon wizard casting instead of sorcerer, using its own scales as a "spellbook". And Ravening is just evil on certain dragons since it lets them do their breath 3 times in a row and then roll 1d4 to wait for the next set of 3 rounds it can use it again.

    Mostly from very emotionally confused sex in which a very haughty and self-important drake gets off on doing or being done by members of a race that it considered hopelessly beneath it. We touched on some of these points the last time we has a serious discussion of the psychology of bestiality. It's a degradation fetish.

    Really can't agree. Dragons are arrogant and don't really have any conventions; therefore, they basically only hold themselves to their own standrads. Ex, if a (good) dragon decides they like to whore around, well, it gets the rocks off, mortals can offer consent, and anyway, (s)he deserves whatever (s)he wants, and is gracing them with hir presence. (Etc, etc, etc.)

    I figure evil dragons (like green,) would be totally down with buggering about to get themeselves half-dragon guards and minions; productive and enjoyable! And if anyone suggests that it isn't dignified or respectable, kill 'em.

    Sure, I guess.
    (all reviews in my words, not wizard's)
    Mercury Dragons: Looking like the child of an anorexic Silver and an albino viper, mercury dragons are perhaps the least arrogant of dragons. A mercury dragon craves one stimulus, and one only: Variety. It is commented by other dragons that the mercury dragons have breathed too much of their own poisonous breath, as they frequently behave erratically, and will willingly submit themselves to another's will, as long as they are promised new experiences and a sizable hoard.
    Consummate shape-shifters, mercurys frequently try living among humanoids, but they aren't as adept at picking up social cues. A mercury dragon may kill and eat their host's cat once they realize they've never tried cat.
    When dealing with a mercury, it will have one of two approaches: either it will attack you out of boredom, and demand you tell it why you should be spared (in an honest desire to know something interesting), or it will try chatting first if it feels sufficiently varied. Mercuries should never be fully trusted, as many draconic tales feature the mercury betraying its master at a crucial point "to see what happens".

    You're absolutely right. Every square inch probably IS a dragon's territory, even the cities, where you'd find some silvers, golds, but mostly steel dragons.

    Before I move on, a few tactical notes: their breath renders them invisible to the victim, as well as poisoning them, it is especially deadly when it has an advantage over it's foe, and if they cannot gain entry due to their size, they can turn into a large puddle of quicksilver.

    Mithral Dragons: If your (good) god sends a dragon, odds are, it's a mithral. Claiming to be the most powerful and majestic of dragons (a claim that wins them no friends among the gold or red), Mithral dragons dwell within the astral sea, or ancient temples. They are blessed with foresight, and are capable of teleportation from the moment they leave the egg. They are in many ways the ascetics of dragonkind, having their followers build them gardens or tend flocks to feed them, while they gather a hoard that will most serve whichever goal the mithral has foreseen in the skein of time.
    Those who oppose the mithral dragon learn quickly that fighting one who sees the future is difficult, even more so when they can teleport at will.
    >> Anonymous 11/26/10(Fri)14:50 No.12939370

    Orium Dragons: Imagine Indiana Jones, if he were a dragon. You're not thinking of an orium dragon, but you're in the right frame of mind. One of the first things worth noting is that the ore the breed is named for, orium, is not frequently used anymore, a secret of the ancient empires that relied on the orium for protection. And with that, you may already grasp the core belief of oriums: the older the better. A clay pot that's 10,000 years old is worth more to them then their weight in fresh-minted coin. They lair in the ruins of the ancients, and seek to rebuild them to their former majesty. Oriums are unusually direct in their first encounter with new people, asking bluntly why you came to their home. This is so that they may divide you into the three categories they view all humanoids as fitting into: slave, meat, or thief. once they have you filed, you are slaughtered if meat or thief, and magnanimously allowed to live, despite how easy it would be to crush you, in order to continue the great work. An orium does not hunt if it can avoid it, as their are too many ancient secrets to study.
    Notes for fighting an orium: An orium's breath weapon encases its foes in a cloud of acid, which then shapes itself into a living acid serpent. Beware the crushing tail of older dragon, but otherwise they rely on tooth and claw, not on spells, to bring down their foes.

    Finally, the steel dragons.

    It is highly likely, young adventurer, that you have already met a steel dragon. For a steel dragon's favorite lair is his own house on the main street of a bustling town or city. His preferred hoard is real estate, and decorations for the walls of his houses. A steel dragon, in short, prefers the life of a man such as you or I to that of a dragon. How can you tell if a man is a steel dragon? There are a few signs: firstly, when they are young, a steel may not realize he needs less food in his human shape than in dragon form. Thus, if you see a well-to-do young man consume an entire hog in one sitting, you may be watching a steel dragon. Further, whether by genetic necessity, or some other reason, a steel dragon always leaves some small hint in his human form. Perhaps his hair is gray before its time, or his eyes are a piercing gray. It may be as subtle as steel jewelry or pale skin. Yes, these aren't great signs, but they're what you get. In the end, it isn't really important whether or not you've met a steel. They choose our life because they admire our way of life. The most trouble one is likely to cause comes from one of their greatest divisions with their draconic kin: Steel dragons loathe authority, especially restrictive ones. They are as greedy as their kin, as despise laws that prevent them from legally obtaining what they desire. A steel may lead a revolution against a oppressive regime, uncaring whether the regime is actually good for its citizens.
    >> Anonymous 11/26/10(Fri)15:12 No.12939521

    Of course, other dragons are not too fond of the steel for a simple reason: I notice you're kitting up to fight the Red dragon that rules this county. Tell me, was your employer a wealthy nobleman? No doubt complained about the tariffs? There's no shame in it boy, hell, I may be wrong, but I'd say you're a steel dragon's weapon against a rival. Hey, look at it this way: at least now you can demand more pay.
    If you want to fight the steel as well, I'll tell you what little I know of their tactics. They know us, so they're quite good at tricking men into bad tactical positions. Their wings are thin, but strong enough to bat away crowding foes, and their breath is a roar that hits you like a wall of force. There's harder dragons, but most times you won't know you're fighting a steel until a little too late.

    And that's all four of them.
