5e - Draconomicon I: Chromatic Dragons

Suggested Price $0.00

Draconomicon I: Chromatic Dragons focuses solely on the three chromatic dragons first released in the original 4e supplement of the same name; the brown dragon, gray dragon, and purple dragon.  Inside you can find stat blocks for all three types of dragons, each at the four life stages depicted in 5e's Monster Manual; wyrmling, young, adult, and ancient.  Each set of monsters comes with appropriate lore pertaining to their lifestyles and habits, as well as their lairs and additional combat options such as lair actions.

The original Draconomicon I: Chromatic Dragons dealt with a lot more than just "normal" chromatic dragons.  It provided stat blocks for various elemental dragons, and dragons of other planes such as the Feywild, and a host of other near-draconic or almost-draconic creatures as well.  However, those creatures go beyond the scope of what I wanted to do for this PDF.  Which is why I will be designing two more Draconomicons.  Keep an eye out for Draconomicon II: Metallic Dragons, which will have information about the adamantine, cobalt, iron, mercury, mithril, orium, and steel dragons (that's over twice as many dragons as Draconomicon I!).  And after that will be Draconomicon III: Planar Dragons, which will include various elemental dragons, dragons of the planes, and astral dragons (to name a few).

If you enjoy this PDF, please consider supporting Wizards of the Coast directly by purchasing the original Draconomicon I: Chromatic Dragons.

Thank you! I can't say soon; probably in a couple of months, but who knows? Maybe I'll get some free time to put towards it.

Is there an art gallery for 4e Draconomicon art? I found one for 3.5e, but couldn't find one for 4e.

I do what I can; so many great dragons that weren't represented.

Rules Edition(s)
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.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. 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. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. 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.
