Dragons! Beginning this month’s RPG Blog Carnival

1 February, 2022

Welcome to the RPG Blog Carnival for the Month of February, 2022, on the theme of Something, Something, Dragons.

Obviously, the important part of the theme is DRAGONS, creatures so central to our conception of roleplaying games that they are half of the title of the “world’s most popular roleplaying game”.

So, let us talk about Dragons.  Some ideas:

  • Tell us how dragons fit into your world or do not.
  • What dragons are well known in your world?  What myths and legends surround them?
  • Tricks and techniques of successful dragon hunters.
  • Why do dragons gather hoards?  And what do they hoard in your campaign.
  • What can be made with dragon bone and dragon scale?
  • If you eat a dragon’s heart, what happens?
  • Stories of encounters with dragons from your games.

Let your imagination soar like a flying dragon (and how do dragons fly?).

I hope you find inspiration.  Please leave a comment on this post with a link to your submission.  As people post link, please take a look as the idea is to share, inspire and bounce of one another’s ideas.  At the end of the month, all of the links will be collected as in a hoard in a final wrap up post.

If you are not a blogger hopefully you will be still be inspired.  If you start a relevant thread on Reddit or Discord or a forum or whatever, then please post a link to it in the comments so that can be shared too.  The more people involved, the merrier!  Let us create some wondrous things together!

My first contribution, the Dragon Empress.

Notes: This will be the fourth time the Sea of Stars has hosted the RPG Blog Carnival, the first time back in May, 2017 with the theme of Occult Mysteries, the second time in February, 2019 with the theme of Making Magic Wondrous, and the third was February, 2021, on the theme of Divine Artifacts.

Thanks to Daemons and Death Rays for hosting the RPG Blog Carnival last month on Political intrigue, Courtly drama and Factions.

  2. The Draconic Prophecy is totally embedded in the world of Eberron, and offers plenty of adventure hooks! (the article was written in Spanish, but Google Translate should do a nice job)
