Do not defend yourself on that aspect, I think we all see here a great submission. One thing I have noticed while being here at Strolens is people may like your work but disagree with it and still give it a good rating. At least that is how it should work.

In my system/ world. There are eleven true dragons who are the misplaced children of one of my dead gods brought from another place. They can reproduce but the time it takes the dragons to mature the young are nearly a completely other race, and they will never match the strength and intelligence of their parents.

Enter the wyverns, the dragon offspring. They are animalistic in nature and have a basic form of intelligence when matured, nothing more. I have made the dragons very powerful but weak in the sence that they are limited in number and the time they are awake. They hybernate for two centuries at a time, while they are awake for one.

I understand where you intended to go with this and you pulled it off. We were just saying that we had other views about dragon-human relationships. Go to Comment

My first official post. It's a long one, I know, but I don't think it's too bad content-wise. Go to Comment

My thanks, Scrasamax. I'll try to keep up the quality.

I'm curious what you find questionable about a dragon-human cooperation. Is it the premise of their association, that the dragons needed help from mortals? or just the fact that they've associated at all? Go to Comment

Hm, perhaps I placed too much emphasis on the protection aspect and not enough on the severity of the plague. My view of dragons (at least in this particular world) is close to Scras' and Mourn's, though maybe on about a 2/3 scale of strength. Dragons are still rare in my world, perhaps no more than a few hundred. But I also see the godlike mystique of a dragon that slaughters ten thousand armies without care as mythical. They are certainly mighty, but not entirely invulnerable.

The boneblight plague also put them in grave circumstances. It's a disease that, among other symptoms, gives severe arthritis to the point of making an individual completely immobile (I plan to make an entry on boneblight later). Close to half of the draconic race was wiped out, and two-thirds of the rest were infected. The dragons were in dire straights when they requested the help of the Magi.

While I keep talking about the monks as protectors of the dragons, they are also servants, footsoldiers and mortal eyes for the dragons. They cure dragons when ill, or protect their borders and secrecy.

That was my intention, at least, and it's hardly canonical. Interpret and modify them however you'd like. Go to Comment

I absolutely agree about the comments as other POVs, Mourngrymn, and I appreciate it. After reading the comments and rereading my post, I realized I had d/emphasized some aspects that I hadn't meant to. The comments were quite helpful in seeing other POVs, and they are greatly appreciated.:)

I like your system's dragons, Mourngrymn. I've never thought of dragons as the children of the gods. A lot of the time, though, I see dragons as "munchkin" (I think that's the phrase you guys use?). If there's a dragon nearby, you just stand in awe and quietly slink away. If a dragon attacks a kingdom, the whole country is screwed. My view of dragons is sort of skewed in the opposite direction as that, I suppose. My experience with RPGs is limited, of course, and I think most people on here use dragons and other mythical creatures much more sparingly and wisely. But I find badly written/played dragons as a huge roadblock and cliche. Go to Comment
