|| "Trogdor was a man!|
I mean, he was a dragon-man!
Or... maybe he was just a dragon.
And the Trogdor comes in the night!"
-The Brothers Chaps, "Trogdor". 2003.
Draconians are the mythical half-dragon inhabitants of the Realm of Zot. Each draconian has a colour, and some have occupations as well; the different colors determine their draconian breath attacks and resistances, while the occupations determine their equipment, skills, and spells. Fortunately, they are all cold-blooded creatures and will be slowed by weapons of freezing (unless cold resistant).
Draconian Colours & Breath Attacks
|| A scale-covered humanoid with a reptilian tail and small wings.
d Draconian - Immature draconians with no breath attack. If you see one, it's probably a shapeshifter in disguise.
d Black draconian - Flight-capable draconians that breathe highly-damaging bursts of electricity.
d Green draconian - Poisonous draconians that have stinger tails and can breathe clouds of poison.
d Grey draconian - These draconians lack breath weapons but have more AC, hit harder, and do not drown.
d Pale draconian - Draconians that breathe jets of steam, which don't do much damage but block line of sight.
d Purple draconian - Occult draconians that are quite resistant to magic and breathe blasts of irresistible, enchantment-stripping energy.
d Red draconian - Fiery draconians that spew blasts of fire that leave behind clouds of flames.
d White draconian - Frosty draconians with AC-piercing cold breath. Their icy nature negates the side-effects of their cold-blooded physiology.
d Yellow draconian - Draconians that will melt your equipment with their acid breath.
q Draconian annihilator - Conjurations masters capable of causing devastation at range.
q Draconian knight - Skilled with both weapons and spells, draconian knights are competent opponents.
q Draconian monk - These Unarmed Combat specialists strike quickly and hard in melee.
q Draconian scorcher - Pyromaniac casters with access to both fire and damnation.
q Draconian shifter - Translocations experts who blink both themselves and their allies around a lot. They can also shut down your Translocations.
q Draconian stormcaller - Warrior-priests of Qazlal who call down storms upon their foes while calling up hordes of drakes.
d Bai Suzhen - An odd, watery draconian from a distant land. Her skill in battle and ability to Summon Hydras are dangerous enough, but wounding her will force her to unleash her true form...
d Tiamat - Found only in the Realm of Zot, Tiamat is a brutally powerful opponent. She changes her colour randomly and wears the powerful dragonskin cloak, giving her a wide range of resistances. She always travels with a large entourage of lesser draconians.
d Mottled draconian - Draconians that spat gouts of Sticky Flame, setting their foes ablaze.
q Draconian zealot - Servants of a dark god that could summon demons, raise the dead, and hurl hellfire.
- Prior to 0.28, classed draconians could randomly spawn with varying colours.
- Mottled draconians and draconian zealots were removed in 0.20.
- 0.20 also introduced draconian stormcallers by merging zealots with the old draconian callers.
