Seven Questions About…: Dragons

How many types of Dragon are there?

Dragons come in four basic types: the Woodland Dragon, the Sea Dragon, the Mountain Dragon and the God Dragon. There are some variations among the four types, but these variations are not great enough to be called new types.

The Woodland Dragons, which are never more than about 8 feet long and are the only Dragons that can actually fly, have Marsh and Desert variants, which differ mostly in coloring and what they feed upon. Woodland Dragons are the least likely Dragons to harm a human or other sentient race.

Sea Dragons grow to lengths of 50 feet or better and live an amphibious life. They are totally able to breath air or water and mainly come ashore to breed, rear their young and hunt for land animals. Variations are the River and Lake Dragons, which grow slightly smaller, but come onto land more often.

Most people who see a large Dragon are seeing a Mountain Dragon. They can reach lengths of up to 120 feet and are able to glide, but not actually fly. They also have both poisonous breath and the deadly flame breath. Variations include the Hill Dragon, the Cave Dragon and the Glacier Dragon.

Nobody has seen a God Dragon in over 260 years, but they are out there. At lengths nearing 500 feet, they are terrible engines of destruction, when angry, which they often are. Since every God Dragon is very distinctive looking, there are no variants.

Where do Dragons live?

Dragons can be found in all parts of the world except the polar regions and the Great Red Desert. On the island of Glebniar, the only Dragons you’ll find are a small form of Woodland Dragon that seldom grows to more than 4 feet long.

Are Dragons intelligent?

Yes, but how intelligent depends upon the type. Woodland Dragons are at least as intelligent as an ape, while Sea Dragons are probably no smarter than dogs. Mountain Dragons are as intelligent as humans and can speak our languages. God Dragons are exceptionally intelligent and it is only their anger and inability to work with others of their kind that have kept them from ruling the world.

Do Dragons really eat people?

Mountain and God Dragons enjoy the taste of sentient flesh and have been known to kill thousands of people in some areas. Sea Dragons often kill sentients, but almost never eat them. Woodland Dragons have never been known to kill or eat sentients.

Are Dragons resistant to magic?

Only God Dragons are truly resistant to magic, although Mountain Dragons can be tough enough that it takes powerful spells to hurt them.

Do Dragons have any natural enemies?

Yes, they do! Many creatures have been known to eat Woodland Dragons when they can catch them. Sea Dragons that stray into deep waters are often eaten by giant sharks, killer whales and krakens. The main foe of the Mountain Dragon is the Mountain Giant, who enjoy Dragon meat. God Dragons have only two enemies: Sentients in large enough numbers to kill them and other God Dragons.

What should I do if I encounter a Dragon?

If it is a Woodland Dragon, just stand still and allow it to go away. Sea Dragons will usually not attack you if you run away or, if in the water, you just float and do not cause a commotion. If you encounter a Mountain Dragon, try to run into a very thickly grown over section of forest. If you meet up with a God Dragon, then just kiss your ass goodbye.
