Dragons of the world

(1/2) > >>

Fiokar_Dracolas:
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?

CaptainPenguin:
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)
Hydras
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.

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