3,000 years after their defeat, the chromatic dragons
rise oce again under Ezorth
who formed the Chromawing
, with the goal of conquering the prime material realm
and rule alone as The Platinum
The metallic dragons
unite under Orseria
and form the Dragonguard
. The war nearly tears the realm in half, awaking sleeping titans
back to life. One of ten mortals
dies in the conflict and most dragon species go extinct, with the exception the strongest five of each kind remaining.
Following the war the metallic dragons realize that their very nature as rulers and apex predators is the cause for war, and not their color. They make a sacred pact
to never let more than a handful from each of their kinds to exist at all times. All metallic dragons band under the Dragonguard
, while Ezorth forms the Chromawing
in the shadows.
As answer to the suffering mortals endured during their war, the remaining metallic dragons each created an egg and entrusted it in the hands of a different mortal race to care for.
