    I can head canon this as them returning to the Realm after growing older on Earth. And Eric get that sword that Bobby picked up in "The Dragon's Graveyard". It was able to cleave through rock like a hot knife through butter!

    D&D 5E D&D's official twitter feed is giving previews of art and contents from Monsters of the Multiverse

    Ah I see, just getting back into the game after a long hiatus. So I just read elsewhere that it's actually a bit of a throwback to their 1e appearance, just making their heads similar to their draconic counterparts this time.

    D&D Older Editions

    Exactly! Now that I'm reading Fizban's Treasury of Dragons there's material there, specifically for gem dragons, that I can adapt into the full 3.5 gem dragon update I made ages ago, as well as a hypothetical 3.5 Draconomicon II that focuses on the gem dragons and Monster Manual lesser dragons.

    What happened to the gargoyle-inspired face? Those look like wilted blue dragon ear frills. :rolleyes:

    D&D General WizKids Emerald Dragon Miniature

    Jessa Blackthorne did an unboxing of all three dragons last Nov. 18 on the WizKids Games YouTube channel. Maybe it's the lighting, but the emerald dragon didn't give off a vitreous or glassy luster like I'd hope. Of course it's plastic but I don't want it that obvious.

    Fizban's Treasury of Dragons Review Round-Up – What the Critics Say

    Now that I finally got my copy last weekend… Yes, "great wyrms" as in the 12th age category have the most complete set of spell-like or supernatural abilities plus highest spellcasting level and damage. Now for 5e greatwyrms I compare them thematically to the dragon ascendant prestige class in...

    Fizban's Treasury of Dragons: An In-Depth Review

    I remember that too, and it's neat how each base metal dragon becomes a specific chromatic dragon based on its color when it is corrupted, ie. iron dragons rusted so they turned into red dragons.

    D&D General why brass and bronze dragons?

    Yes I read that. I was referring to a popular belief that since B can't be used for Black since it is used for Blue in RGB, K is used for Black in CMYK because it is the last letter of blacK.

    D&D General why brass and bronze dragons?

    I know, but RGB and CMYK are often mentioned in the same sentence. It's not the official reason for K rather than B, but it's used anyway.

    D&D General why brass and bronze dragons?

    B is already use for Blue. As for the bronze and brass dragons? My take: they are known for centuries, so it's easy to fit them in a fantasy setting that has a similar metallurgy history. Also, while a somewhat weaker case than for chromatic dragons, the five metallic dragons are also...

    A unique three-headed copper silver gold dragon named Cuagau! :eek::D

    Fizban's Treasury of Dragons: An In-Depth Review

    Yup, and while they are alloys, they are alloys of metals. Steel is traditionally an alloy of iron and carbon, a nonmetal. So it makes sense that the steel dragon feels different from the 100% metallic dragons. Also both bronze and brass are alloys of copper, one of the three gold group of...

    Fizban's Treasury of Dragons: An In-Depth Review

    Of course we can base a gem dragon from an organic gemstone. Just that including them among the five main gem dragon species leaves them the odd man out. I homebrewed the converted 3.5e amber and pearl dragons as a sister branch to those five gem dragons. They're not psionic out of the egg, but...
