Draconomicon: Metallic Dragons describes several varieties of dragons, including gold, silver, copper, iron, and adamantine dragons. Story and campaign elements in the book give Dungeon Masters ready-to-play material that is easily incorporated into a game, including adventure hooks, quests, encounters, and pregenerated treasure hoards. It was published in November Continuing the Monster Splatbooks. Like its predecessors, it mixes the fluff of dragon background with crunchy stats for new dragons and also contains lots of adventures, encounters, and lairs.
Expanding the Dragons. With that first supplement, the five core races of metallic dragons were set down, though they differed from their more recent kin in one way: they weren't all lawful! Instead metallic dragons could be neutral. There were no metallic dragons in the Monster Manual Instead, GMs had to wait for the Monster Manual 2 , and upon its release they found an odd set of dragons. Three classics were there — the copper, gold, and silver — but the brass and bronze dragons were missing, replaced by two interlopers: the adamantine and iron dragons.
The "good" dragons were also changed in another way: they were now all listed as being "Unaligned". Draconomicon: Metallic Dragons appeared exactly half-a-year after Monster Manual 2.
It better explained the changes, saying that "Not all metallic dragons are good". As a result, metallic dragons were now a potential target for parties of adventurers — something that 4e's detractors took as another sign of the edition's focus on combat. Metallic Dragons also introduces seven new dragons. Though some of these dragons had appeared in some forms before, every single one of them was notably revamped from its previous appearances.
NPCs of Note. As with the previous monster splatbooks, this one details a few famous creatures. Other NPCs such as the brass dragon Andraemos and the cobalt dragon Niflung are new to this sourcebook.

Watermarked PDF. Average Rating 1 rating. A cobalt dragon had first appeared in Dragon June as one of a new grouping of five dragons called the ferrous dragons or the heavy metal dragons.
The group had been popular, reappearing in Dragon The mithral dragon was most obviously a totally new entity, because the sole appearance of a dragon in this metal before had been in SJR4: "Practical Planetology" , which described a dragon related to a specific planet in the Spelljammer universe.
In fact, when the Metallic Dragon designers created their own mithral dragon, they were thinking more about the radiant dragon, also from Spelljammer The orium dragon was totally new. Jalanvaloss , a steel dragon also known as the Wyrm of Many Spells originally appeared in Ed Greenwood's long-running "Wyrms of the North" series.

Copy Link Tweet This. Original electronic Scanned image These products were created by scanning an original printed edition.
Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable.
Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background. For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy.
We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive. Original electronic format These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable.
Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
