Hey all. Rocket Sheep's "Controversial Topics" thread is getting me down :( so I decided to start a franchise! Actually, it's really because dragons are even more varied than elves and I'm curious to see some strange interpretations. Post away!

Dragons are big ass reptiles with wings and they breathe fire.

Dragons are:
Repiles.
Breathe flame.
Some can fly.
Some are good.
Some aren't.
Some are intelligent.
Some aren't.
They have a desire for gold.
The smart ones can do magic.

They don't have to breath fire per se, they are just usually associated with an element.

And maybe not so much gold as shiny stuff... like potheads.

Dragons are big, and scary, and ugly. They are also usually ancient, forgotten and dying out.

Dragons are a metaphor for the male private parts.
They live in dark caverns.
In Chinese imagery, they are often depicted guarding a white pearl.

Groovy, huh?

My favorite dragon comes from Dragonbane by Barbara Hambly - a male all black dragon takes over a gnome underground city - his real name is a snippet of music. The gold he's got piled to form a bed and it resonates with his musical magic.

i read some where that there were idfferent types of dragons.
ice dragons that breathe ice instead of fire)
earth dragons
fire dragons
and so on
i also read that the different colour reflect their characteristics.
ie white ones are stupid, bronze ones are talkative, black/blue ones are evil, green ones are cave habitats etc

not that its based on any real evidence as dragons arent real :rolleyes:

ive got a nice dragon and a bad dragon in my book

Dragons can only be conjured if you follow the correct ritual.

First, you must consume vast amounts of the special elixir, and ONLY in one of the sacred Pub-chapels.

Then you must mutter the inane chat-up chant.

Then you black-out and will more than likely forget what next occurs but you will wake up to find the beast lying next to you. Scales, breath that could melt armour and yes, they eat men.

Beware the Dragons!!!

Large carnivorous scavenger reptiles, land based, whose bite can be infectious. The largest species, the Komodo Dragon, is endangered and has a limited habitat. Smaller species of dragons can be purchased at pet stores as pets. Which might be interesting if they suddenly got bigger. Hmm, I think I just had a story idea there. Excuse me. :)
