Local Dragons

Post by shadowgate » 25 Apr 2019, 00:13

After a few questions from Jacen last night, realised we should probably have a reference for this, in the same way we reference any recurring temple/city NPCs. Dragons tend to be fairly rare and are high points of interest. Putting down the notes I'm aware of below, please expand 

Askurin (persona, Loki): Gold, age? Cursed to reside in human form for ill-deeds in the past. Maintains cover as a researcher in the Oghmanite temple.
Mnelarande (persona, Nienne): Silver, young adult. Currently in guise of a young elf female, residing in Synoria. Assists many temples and sages in the area as a dragon researcher. Directed the retrieval efforts that restored bardic magic (players present at the finale know her mortal guise).

Geonslu (mob): Emerald, age?? Lives within the volcano of Tonerra.

Vasha (persona, Loki): Black, young adult (??). Originally adopted by the Mielikkian temple to be "good", though this is not believed except by those close. Was aged rapidly by a spell. Remains undercover assisting good?
Klauth (mob): Red, great wyrm. Often entertains himself by sending locals on nearby islands or the mainlands, scurrying on tasks for his amusement. Resides upon the island of Aramanth
Snarl (mob): Red, ancient (this prolly needs adjusting). "old and decrepit" (doesn't really work for dragons), trapped within Demongate and residing over his lair there.
Muln (mob): White, age uncertain. Resides in the upper reaches of the hazardous Laerad caverns.
Deceased: Qurell (persona, Lurue/Tiamat?): White, great wyrm. Hunted down by a group of adventurers as conquest, as retort for a suspected attack on Tonovi (though Mnelarande was actually the culprit).
Deceased: Zarthaken (persona, Chronos): Blue, age uncertain. Believed to have been residing in Shadow desert. Brought threat against Shadow city and was slain by a large group of adventurers.
Deceased: Darli-Sha (persona, Tiamat): Green, young adult. Was mostly a cowardly meddler in the affairs of Daggerdale politics while poly morphed. Since its destruction, she's retreated to Dagger Marsh and into semi-hibernation. Had a spat with Zacharias from which she's now recovered.
Deceased: Kromizmous (persona, Tiamat): Blue, ancient. Currently very dead resident of Gods Plains, Laerad. Remains were being tracked off-scene for raising as dracolich, unsure if ever completed.

Zhashabur (persona, Lurue): Mercury, age? Dabbles in human affairs for entertainment and fairly well known on the mainland, at least to higher up adventurers and some of the temples.
Arkhon Bloodscale (mob): Deep, ancient. A political force to himself, and through his representative Rath'argh. Previously involved with Deku and drow in centuries previous, now involved in Dagger's drow city and Darol'dralych.
Akshemdarimilian (persona?) was killed in 656, unknown type.

Great stuff!

Snarl was rewritten to be a phantasmal illusion of an old red dragon.
If memory serves me right, Zarthaken's spirit survived the battle, though his body was slain. Whether or not he is still alive remains a mystery.

There is also a very young topaz dragon named Srorula (part persona, Hades, part mount, Amasaeele). He spent his baby years in Moonstone vale and tends to chill there or on Parnelli (with the wild elf tribe), but is not well known outside those circles.
