Dragons of the world

(1/2) > >>

I have been extermely facinated with dragons lately. Part of this is due to my campaign (which centers around them). I'm just a little curious as to how many different types of dragons exist both in real mythology and the various different gaming systems. Does anyone know anything interesting?

Well, lessee, theres yer typical Western Dragon (Wings, teeth, scales, claws)
Eastern Dragon (Snakelike, good luck, hodgepodge of animals)
Wyverns (Self-explanatory)
Drakes (Snake-like, wingless dragons of fire and ice)
Lindwurms (Scandinavian dragons that are aquatic)
Amphisbaena (A dragon with a human face and snake on the end of it's tail)

There are many more.

Ria Hawk:
I don't know if this counts as a dragon, but Uroborus (sp?), the great serpent who circled the world, trying to eat his own tail.

Ouroboros, who was absorbed into Norse mythology as Jormungandr, the serpent that encircled the world.
