I thought that some folks here might find this table interesting. I used to maintain it over at Maxminis and still do at Hordelings. But since not everyone goes to every site, I thought I'd put it up over here, too.

Would you like to see the chart organized by Power Ranking instead of alphabetically?







I will be covering as many of the True Dragons as I can, but I have limited resources. I will not be including mounted Dragons, but may include templated Dragons at my discretion. I don't have a particular set of criteria, but I generally won't count Undead Dragons of any sort as that that type of Dragon (ex: Zombie White Dragon does not count), but may include another templated Dragon if the template doesn't impact the physical appearance (too much).

I hope you find it useful.

Oh, and if someone can find the Night Below emblem (white or black symbol on a colored circle background) like this chart used to have, that would be great. I hate using these images as the emblem is typically much clearer and there's less noggin-scratching when trying to remember which boxart went with which set.

Next Update: Unknown. If you know of any True Dragons not included in the Core books and Draconomicon, please post or email me the relevant information (Category: Chromatic, Planar, Lung, etc. and Size Range: from what to what).

Wraithborne is indeed correct. You'd think that I'd remember to label my diagrams and charts.

But I've got something nicer coming in a few minutes...

It has been suggested that I change the ordering to reflect the relative power level of the Dragons (instead of just being alphabetical) and the points cost.

Do any of you have some suggestions as to what you might find useful?

I prefer the order the way it is, the order in the Monster Manual is usually how my mind thinks anyway.

Oh, it's there alright. Well, I know it still is on Hordelings. I've been posting to it of late to try and see if anyone there has that darned Night Below logo...I'm presuming it's still on Maxminis as well.

But, just in case, don't look for postings by Pinky Narfanek. I'm "Can of the Cave Beer" or "CanoftheCaveBeer" on those boards.

I have decided, after looking through Draconomicon that I'll probably end up charting out the rest of the True dragons. I mean, I'm already a good chunk of the way there.

I can leave it that way here. The chart's easy enough to recreate (hooray screen captures!).

But that way folks will have some choice as to whether they follow the alphabetical or power rankings!

I like the power rankings

Well, it's stickied over at Greyhaze's site and I'll probably be doing the power rankings over there. I know that it's not the perfect solution, but it will be easy to find.

Very Happy

awesome chart, very helpful for when I'm looking through a module and have to decide if I can grab up a couple of the dragons mentioned. Thanks!

It's my pleasure.

Sometime in the next couple days, I will be making a major update to the charts. I'm working on getting the Lung, Faerunian, and Planar dragons onto charts of their own.

Which reminds me. I've got to find that source for that I used for the Gem dragons. I hate doing it, but I'm not going to fork out that kind of dough for a couple books that I'll never actually use beyond making these charts.

Update and minor chart revision (set symbols).

I'll revise it back to alphabetical listings when I get a bit more time.

awesome, I really dig the set symbols. Takes me like a second longer sometimes, because I never got boxes of the old ones, but I'll have some figs for it (black dragon from DE). Great chart though, hopefully DoD1 will fill that sucker in a bit more.

Well, if I ever get the Night Below (and subsequent) emblems, I'll be happy to change back. But my own personal "issues" prevent me from simply mixing them together--it has to be one or the other. Sad

And I was a bit worried that people wouldn't instantly recognize the booster art (heck, I don't recognize it instantly) so that's why I included the key at the top. I'll probably tweak that when I have computer access again.

I have updated the chart again. The listing has been reverted to alphabetical and the "power ranking" has been linked at greyhaze's DDM Spoilers site.

The key was tightened a bit, and I'll probably tweak that again in a couple weeks, but I'm not going to worry overmuch about it as all I'd be doing would be shrinking it a bit. It'll still be quite readable, so don't worry about that. It's really just a neatness issue.
