The Book of Dragons: Volume II


The Book of Dragons: Volume II is the sequel to The Book of Dragons for 5th Edition, introducing even more draconic options for both players and Dungeon Masters in the world of 5th Edition. Though it functions as a sequel, The Book of Dragons: Volume II does not require its predecessor for use.

This book explores the possibilities of hatching and raising dragons, as well as lairs, wards, and hoards that might be guarded by the powerful beasts, and a multitude of other options for Dungeon Masters to explore. Players can also find rules for dragon-based subclasses, including three wizard Arcane Traditions and a Dracolyte prestige class. However, the bulk of this book (and its main purpose) is a bestiary, including an abundance of new dragon-like creatures (such as amphitheres, dragon eels, drakes, and linnorms), eleven new dragon types (six gem dragons and five ferrous dragons) at all twelve age categories, and rules for catastrophic and planar dragons.

Please leave a review after purchase so I know what you like and/or dislike. This way, I can modify the supplement's contents or make corrections as needed, and I'll have a better idea of what to do for future titles.

So, after looking through this book, I noticed some of the stat blocks don’t have a transparent edge around them, was wondering if this is just my media viewer or if it is the file itself?

Hello Conner. I was wondering if there was a way for you to help me with a little issue. I'm trying to download the pdf, but whenever I download it, it always results in a network error. No other pdf I get off here does this. I was wondering if there's any corruption you may know of.

Hi Micah,

I'm sorry to hear that! It is a pretty large file (but not as large as the first Book of Dragons if my memory serves me well), so that may have something to do with it. You could try hard-wiring a connection to your router or making sure your other devices aren't connected to your internet. Hopefully you are able to get it to work!

Hi Martin!

I don't have the skill set to create the Fantasy Grounds mod, but if someone with the skills approaches me I would be open to the idea. As of right now, I don't know though, nor do I have a timeline for the creation of a Fantasy Grounds version.

Hi Connor,

Sorry about this late reply. Many thanks for your answer. Bought the first volume of the book as PFD and mod, and hopefully someone can create a mod for this book as well. Maybe Trevor who posted too. Anyway, thanks again and keep up the good work :)

Hi Conner

Did you find a solution with Trevor or someone else to make a FG mod?
Love the first book mod.

Hey Martin,

Yes, Rob Twohy is currently working on a FG mod for the Book of Dragons II. I just spoke to him and he said he's almost done, so hopefully it will be out soon!

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.
