Note: We had to fix artwork, requiring reproofing of the print version of this book. The POD version will be temporarily disabled for a short time. We appreciate your understanding in this time.

33 Dragons of Myth and Legend!

Awaken these ancient beings and watch the panic and chaos ensue as they fly over your campaign! These dragons
each appeared in the articles "Wyrms of the North" or "Wyrms of the Realms" from Dragon Magazine and are making
their fifth edition appearances in this hefty tome!

  • 29 Dragons from Dragon Magazine: metallic, chromatic, and gem dragons!
  • Mythic statistics for Bahamut and Tiamat: the dragon gods have come to your
    campaign and only the worthiest of characters can test their mettle.
  • A never-before seen dragon created by the sage Ed Greenwood: The Ghost Wyrm Orothdroun.
    This original dragon was created for the magazine, but has never been seen until now!

Rewards galore! Mythic magic items, spells, and boons as rewards for heroes and villains with the skill and bravery to face mythic encounters!

Do you think the hardcopy will be available in time for Christmas and is there a way I can get notified when it is available? This would be a fantastic Christmas present for my son!!

We are working as fast as possible to get hardcovers back up. If you follow @fallenwyvern on twitter, I will announce it there (and I'll reply to people here as interest in the hardcover is high).

I don't do Twitter so I'll just have to check back here regularly.

No worries, I'll make sure to come back here and message you. Just another reason to start a mailing list I guess!

This is fantastic, is there a known date yet for when we can buy these as a hardback?

As of right now, we're working as fast as we can. The print files have been sent to Lightning (the printer) and as soon as they clear us for proofs, we'll order them. Then it's usually a few days for the proof to arrive and I can turn on the print sales again.

Follow @fallenwyvern on twitter and I'll post the moment it's available! We all thank you for your patience (we can't wait for the print to be available again either!)

Thank you for all the work it took to update these files to D&D 5e. I first
learned about these dragons about 2 years ago as dragon mag. articles. Unfortunately
they were originally described in 3e or 3.5e terms, some of which I found difficult
to translate to 5e but did my best as I wanted to use a couple of them in my homebrew.
So along with The Dragonomicon (updated for 5e) and Fizbans my need for dragon
data and lore is sated for the time being. Thank you Mr. Holmes and team this product
is quite impressive. Bravo!

Wasn't this offered as a hardback at one point?
Customer avatar

Yes! We ran into an issue with licensing art (we licensed art from Adobe that turned out to be copyright infringing) and so we worked with the original artist to use their art in our book.

That requires us to take it down for a short period of time while the hardback gets re-approved and it'll be back up!

Pretty nice book! I quite enjoy the dragon material. :)

Its a bit of a shame though that a couple of Realms super famous and super strong dragons do not appear in the book.

- Inferno (kinda the Larloch of chromatic dragons with unmatched mastery of fire and unbeatable even by the strongest adventurers)
- Tchazzar (kinda the Elminster version for chromatic dragons as Tiamat's strongest champion)
- Larendrammagar Nexus (best metallic dragon spellcaster)
- Iryklathragra (perhaps most famous blue dragon)
- Protanther (former ruler of gold dragons)
- Alasklerbanbastos (one of the most dangerous dracoliches).

Perhaps this book will get an update on them some day or maybe they will appear in a Wyrms of the Reams Mythic Encounters Vol. 2? Would be really nice if it happend.

Never enough dragons. :)

I love the book. One issue I've noticed is it's not clear sometimes what type of dragon the entry is for. Maybe have a sub-heading somewhere that just says "Ancient Gold Dragon" or whatever kind it is. Also, on page 129 first paragraph there are two errant question marks and possibly missing words.

Hi Brian

Just wanted to let you know that both of these issues are fixed in the new PDF.

Each dragon has it's color type listed in the ToC as well as in the statblock as a metadata tag beside it's creature type [for example: Gargantuan dragon (gold)]

Uh hey, Saryndalaghlothtor's art on page 112 was traced from Gustavo Cabral. There looks to be no question about it. It seems to be copied almost exactly, they just added some texture over it. I don't see his credit anywhere in the book. Can I get an explanation for this?

We licensed this from Adobe. We will contact them to make them aware of this information as well. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Thanks for looking into it so promptly! The book is still amazing, and I still have my hard copy on order!

I'd just like to say it's nice to see some legit dragon names ;)
Customer avatar
Bryan H October 21, 2021 1:18 am UTC
Thank you! Although I will admit, I wish I had thought to include a pronunciation guide!
Customer avatar
Shaun T October 29, 2021 2:04 pm UTC
The lesser races cannot truly pronounce a dragon's name anyway ;)

Looks amazing! Will there be a FGU version?

Yup, coming literally as soon as it's done! Watch for it 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.
