Some long time ago I decided on what a dragon of Espheros actually is. Then I forgot. Then I found this while reading the pages I missed. Basically, some sketches of raptor-dinos barely-anthrofied, with their idea of “dragons” being the large pterosaur-dinos.
Then I sort-of-remembered how my dragons were. Basically, the two dragon gods, eastern and western, looked badass and similar to most common representations of their types, while what were generally considered “dragons” in Espheros were not the typical dragons. They are reptiles and dinosaurid creatures, far larger and odder in appearance from the usual, with or without wings, and rarely with any odd abilities. There are some races of dragons that fit the “grow old and intelligent and collect treasure” rule, but most are just freaks of arkane nature.
