Courtesy of the inimitable Endzeitgeist, we have the following kind words for Mythic Monsters: Dragons, available right here at our webstore!
Jason Nelson’s dragons have probably the hardest legacy to hit a creature type can have – I’m a vocal friend of the notion that dragons ought to be truly frightening, deadly and make the PCs shake their boots. Dragons should never be disposable…or bland. Thankfully, the true, massive dragons are just…glorious! They are beauties, with superb, unique abilities, massive, huge statblocks and just style and panache galore. While the drakes are also nice, they fall behind the full-blown dragon’s in style and coolness – and know what? For once, I’m very much okay with that. Why? Because, in my opinion, it’s intentional. It is obvious that Legendary Games mastermind Jason Nelson can make those glorious abilities – he literally plastered the true dragons with them. The thing is – drakes are supposed to be the smaller, less awe-inspiring brethren of the true dragons and while the new abilities reflect that, they still are iconic and cool – and as such, I consider the distinction well wrought. The new creature will see much use in different tables, though personally, I have to admit the fluff etc. feels more like a template than a creature to me.
Oh well, the scaly lord is eyeing me right now and I already have these colored flames dancing on me, so I better wrap this up before he incinerates me… These dragons are awesome. their builds are deadly and massive and while I would have loved one book on dragons, one on drakes, one on linnorms, one cannot always have everything, can one? Since I found at least one, often more components in each creature I really, really loved, I’ll settle on a final verdict of 5 stars + seal of approval, in spite of the missing bookmarks.
