Common Dragon

Common Dragons are what most people would think of as dragons. Scaly, large and cunning, these are beasts you would not very well want to wake up, and if you did, you would wish the one you woke up was one of the youngsters, and not, indeed, the elder dragon.

Basic Information


Common Dragons are large and scaly, with long tails and wide, leathery wings. They have sharp fangs, claws akin to knives, and spikes running down their spines.

Growth Rate & Stages

Common Dragons hatch from eggs the size of a human head. They then grow and grow, continuously for their entire lives. This doesn't go fast, however, and the young dragons take long before becoming a menace. As the dragons age past that of adult age, they reach a point where they become too large to easily move. These giants can still fly if they so wish, but they prefer to find a safe spot, a cave, chasm or castle, where they enter a deep slumber, only waking when disturbed by outsiders, or the cry of a baby dragon.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Common Dragons eat primarily raw meat with little regard to the kind, though some may prefer finer cuisine prepared by a high level cook, or sustain themselves on only a certain species.

Additional Information

Social Structure

Common Dragons seldom live together, and those that do appreciate the company of another sapient being rather kidnap those of another species than socialize with their own kind. There is one exception to this, however. Whenever an adult hears the cry of a baby dragon, they will come to rescue, attacking the perpetrator. This is a very primal instinct of the dragons, and should not be considered an unusual act of willing kindness .

Average Intelligence

Common Dragons are clever, but lack the instinct and patience for longer plans, preferring more direct approaches to satiate their desires.

Civilization and Culture

Interspecies Relations and Assumptions

Some Common Dragons kidnap human maidens. This is generally not appreciated by the humans.
