Kolaghan, the Storm’s Fury (Art by Jaime Jones) In her Fate Reforged form, Kolaghan is modelled on the same power level as the other dragonlords, CR 20. For her ability, which on her card grants +1/+0 to each attacking creature for each attacking dragon, I felt that extra lightning damage would work well for that and produce … Continue reading Dragonlords of Tarkir in D&D: Kolaghan
At the moment I’m a little tied up working on a lot of Ravnica stuff to coincide with the Guilds of Ravnica release, as well as some original content, but rest assured she’s going to be on her way soon, most likely during October. She’s also going to be followed with some extra Tarkir rules … Continue reading Not trying to rush you, but when do you think the Kolaghan Homebrew will be out?
I’ve actually been designing a lot of dragons recently, and I’m really enjoying designing them! I’d love to do the Elder Dragons and was already planning to, so you can definitely expect them at some point in the future, probably once the Dragonlords of Tarkir cycle is finished! In the meantime, all my dragons are … Continue reading Since Dominaria came out are the elder dragons of that plane on the table?
Thanks so much! And it’s no damage on a successful save, the save essentially being “does the lava bomb hit you or doesn’t it,” which I felt was more appropriate than half damage on a successful save for an ability that represents a few individual large projectiles rather than an area-of-effect attack – it’s a few … Continue reading I really love the volcanic dragon. The design kind of reflects the need to deal a lot of damage as fast as possible, without caring for its own safety. An idea would also be an effect similar to the barbarians reckless attacks. Anyway i wanted to ask if the Eruption legendary action deals half or no damage on a succesful save.
Volcanic Dragon by Chris Rahn Rage of the Earth. Born in the heart of a volcanic eruption, volcanic dragons are forces of destruction with few natural equals, carrying a total destructive rage that mirrors the devastation wrought by the lava and pyroclastic flows of their birthplace. As their bodies consist of near-molten stone, volcanic dragons are constantly … Continue reading D&D Monster: Volcanic Dragon
Dromoka, the Eternal For designing Dromoka, two features were at the centre of my design: Dromoka’s resilience, which is exemplified by her high armour class and hit points, and secondly her ability to share that resilience. In the same manner as the other ancient-Tarkir-era dragonlords I’ve designed, Dromoka has an ability granting a benefit to … Continue reading Dragonlords of Tarkir in D&D: Dromoka
Ojutai, Soul of Winter In the state he was in during the Khanfall, Ojutai’s stats are similar to those of an ancient white dragon, the rules of which I used as my main existing point of reference. To represent his ability to tap other creatures, the Dragons’ Frost ability temporarily makes creatures affected unable to … Continue reading Dragonlords of Tarkir in D&D: Ojutai
Silumgar, the Drifting Death With the first iteration of Silumgar, my first point of reference was the Adult Green Dragon, much like I used the Adult Red Dragon as my starting point for Atarka. The main effect focus for this iteration of Silumgar was making his poisonous breath worked more as a constant aura than … Continue reading Dragonlords of Tarkir in D&D: Silumgar
The Ur-Dragon The base I used for the Ur-Dragon was the statblock provided for Tiamat in the Rise of Tiamat module. To mirror its abilities both on the card and in the lore, I made a lot of the Ur-Dragon’s abilities ignore whether its target is on another plane. The Call Brood ability is one … Continue reading Creatures of Commander 2017 in D&D: The Ur-Dragon
Commander 2017 was released yesterday, so this week’s post is going to focus on some of the cool new Vampires, Wizards, Cats and Dragons that we’ve seen in the new set. As each of them is a particularly powerful creature, they all have somewhat large statblocks, so I’m posting them as four separate posts: Edgar … Continue reading Creatures of Commander 2017 in D&D
