'Ware the Moloch

Barbounianic Meditations

I see no way that we can survive the next confrontation. The Party’s salvation is in diplomacy and negotiation, not fighting.

My big toe is very hairy.

We must somehow pit the two Draconian forces against each other and pick a side, help that side destroy the other, and then betray and abandon the victor and find an efficient way to fight HIM.

The pebbles on the ground are curiously reminiscent of seaside pebbles.

An alliance with my enemy from before and subsequent betrayal is a wonderfully tasting karmic action.

I know whom I wish to convince that I support and whose enemy I will fight.

What color is this, exactly? If I squint it looks blueish. Chatter. Cocksucka.

Technically, this is a Draconian. I haven’t made you fight any of them yet, but I could.

Carry on!

Technically, “Draconian” pertains to severely punitive Legal systems, thanks to my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great Grandfother, Dracon of Athena.
I was, however, looking for an adjective that would mean “relating to Dragons” – therefore, “Dragonian” might have been a better choice.

Awesome relation aside, this implies that you’re selecting a general definition of a term over a context-specific one.

Since the year of my birth, “Draconian” within the realms of Dungeons and Dragons has referred specifically to the reptilian, humanoid entities created by intentionally corrupting the eggs of metallic (traditionally good) dragons with dark incantations, an act perpetrated by the Goddess of the chromatic (traditionally evil) dragons. Learning of this betrayal was part of the reason the metallics eventually revealed themselves to the people of Krynn and joined the war that is the focus of the first Dragonlance series.

Largely due to this setting specificity, draconians thus don’t show up all that much in DnD; there’s also the specific role they serve as a demonstrated corruption of metallic dragons’ inherent goodness. Later books in the setting would introduce the concept of Spawn, which employed thaumaturgic methods to create chromatic entities not unlike draconians—and particularly sharing in their tendency to die in particularly violent and destructive fashions.

4th Edition, however, went beyond simply creating the Dragonborn playable race (which technically but badly existed in 3/3.5) by providing exhaustive information regarding both Draconian and Dragonspawn foes.

So what I’m saying is that I’m happy to show you a Draconian. Or twelve. Y’all have the surges for that, right?
