The mighty Dragons of lore are one of many races present in these lands. The Chromatic colored dragons, stereotypically known to be Evil and malicious prefer to hoard gold, damsels, and whatever else suits their fancy. Many of them are secluded away from civilization in their caves, but will often venture out to raze villages of lesser beings to steal their fortunes to add to their own.
Long-lived and with thick hide, these creatures are usually long-lived indeed. In addition they have access to a breath weapon.
Though they would never admit it, their pride is their biggest weakness. Even the good dragons are overprotective of their hoard.
