Dragons. Creatures of legend. Stories told to children. Dragons are the children of the gods, the first to inhabit Krynn. Dragons grow to giant proportions, living for centuries and amassing huge sums of treasure. All dragons possess the ability to radiate dragonfear which paralyzes or impairs their enemies, making them much more vulnerable to attack. All true dragons have the ability to fly, as do some of their cousins, such as wyverns. Dragons are also imbued with a powerful breath weapon.

A dragon's power grows stronger as the dragon ages, making it a more deadly foe the older it gets. Dragons are intelligent and cunning, able to detect invisibility and hidden objects at a glance. When attacking, dragons may use their jaws, tail, fore and rear claws and wings to defeat their enemies, in addition to their breath weapon and any magic spells which they may know. Another great weapon that dragons use is called "dragonfear". This is a magic fear that makes it so other mortals are so terrified to see a dragon they will run or freeze. Dragons hatch from eggs and mature rapidly into one of the ten major or two minor types of dragons on Krynn. There are also some subclasses of dragons where interbreeding has taken place.
