B/X Known World
They don’t need to be gods of great big things. They can be small gods, too. You can bet a socially awkward person would be praying to the dragon-god of conversation.I’ve been giving this a go, but it’s proving to be a lot harder than I thought it would!
The chromatics are definitely the easiest. The metallic dragons are a bit harder, especially brass dragons - it seems their whole schtick is conversation.
Why not? Wasn’t that Thoth’s deal?The gem dragons are even trickier!
Amethyst could be a generic knowledge god, with maybe magic and science thrown in?
So roll with it. The lines don’t need to be neat and tidy. See Athena’s portfolio below.Crystal is pretty random: stars, divination/fate but also fun times, hospitality, healing. They’re like a typical Greek god!
Athena is Goddess of wisdom, handicraft, heroism, courage, war, strategy, industry, and cities.Sapphire seems to be strategic warfare. Not much else besides underground + anti-Far Realm. Vigilance maybe?
The Emerald God of Secrets.Emerald is all about illusion and misdirection in order to observe unseen. So like a wildlife scientist and/or spy.
Renewal and rebirth isn’t a bad portfolio.Topaz is the weirdest dragon, with its backwards wings and all. A god of decay in terms of renewal (whereas a black dragon just likes to watch things decay and isn’t interested in rejuvenating the soil afterwards or whatever).
And fun. What you posted looks good to me. I’d use it.Tricky stuff!
