Favorite dragon…

Seriously?

How in the name of Strahd are you supposed to be able to pick a favorite dragon? I mean, its in the name of the game. Without dragons there would just be dungeons! Its like half the fun is gone. Lame.

No thank you.

It’s all dragons, or I’m in denial about there being no dragons.

This is one of those things where I just don’t want to choose. Like giants, dragons have been around. They are experienced. There is an incredible wealth of international folklore, myth, and what not pertaining to dragons. Choosing just one is really limiting your palette for no particular reason.

Lancelot vs. The wyrm

Amazing Asian sky, river, and storm dragons

And so on

This is literally just the tip of the draconic iceberg. The lore is much, much richer than those few examples.

Also, dragons just have too much going for them. They’re intelligent, cunning, magical, have magical powers, and they are a staple of fantasy literature. Imagine Tolkien’s The Hobbit without Smaug. I don’t want to. Imagine fantasy gaming without dragons. I don’t want to do that either. Having amazing beasts, and knowing where to find them helps bring a lot to the (gaming) table.

The final point is really that, dragons makes games better. If you disagree, you have a right to your opinion, but in this case its wrong. Playing a game called “Dungeons” could only ever be improved by adding dragons.
