    Tale of a Black Dragon

    This game is a solo game I'll DM. Lord Raven will be the player.

    So, Lord, what do you expect for that game? Gives all detail you would like to see in it and I will try to stick to it as much as possible. For my part, a few reminder of what I have suggested:

    The story will be in 12 chapter. Each chapter will tell the main event of an age of teh dragon (starting with hatchling and finishing to great wyrm... supposing the dragon doesn't die before ) Each chapter will be driven by the will of the player and the action he has taken when he was younger. Suffer the consequence of your acts

    For the stats, nothing have been decided yet.

    For the world, I'm open to suggestion, but as you'll hatch from the egg, you'll have to discover the world in game. I,ll tell you wnat you need to know, but if you want to see something in the world I can easily incoporate it. I'll give you some freedom at this moment.

    Thanks for this Velmont, below is my completed Wyrmling Black Dragon, who is currently called Vorax, but who likes to think of himself as Vorastrixvutha the Ebony Sorcerer.

    Vorax is different from other Black Dragons in that he is Neutral Evil (instead of Chaotic Evil) and that he was born with a natural aptitude for magic.

    Regarding start up I want to start the game as Vorax is emerging from his egg to discover that he is alone in the world and must fend for himself. I'll let you decide on the specifics of the world time line and setting.

    Saying that I would prefer to start out in a swamp that isn't too far distant from a human settlement and hopefully close to some other frequently traveled body of water such as a river or sea.

    Also despite Vorax technically being an 8th level ECL character, I'm happy to start out with no equipment or items as he's just emerged from his egg.

    You have express the will to play in DL... that would be an interesting idea, but I,ll have to rethink a bit the whole story, as opposite to a homebrew world, there is a whole story line to follow, except if we go into the fifth age, which could be a possibility too. If we don't, go into teh fifth age, that mean you would probably live the events we know about from the point of view of a dragon. that also mean you will be banish a few times if we play during the dragon wars, which mean the idea of follwoing the ages will be a bit more harder.

    Since you put it that way homebrew sounds like fun to me.
