Monster Monday-Silver Dragon

SilverDragonThomas suddenly felt something in his mind. It shocked him for but a moment before the other mind overwhelmed him. Yes, to the depths of the cavern, of course.

Mind Weave Dragons are greedy and weak-willed. They are however very powerful, growing only mightier with age until they plateau at around 20,000 years old and between 1,600 and 2,000 feet long. Colored dragons are aggressive with lots of offensive power. Metallic dragons are passive and with defensive abilities.

The general dragon post describes Mind Weave dragons in general, including how to interpret dragon characteristics defined below.

Description: Silver Dragons are among the most respected and consulted of dragons, both by other dragons and by other creatures, when they can overcome their fear enough to approach one. They are much more social than other dragons, often living in groups in order to benefit from their coordination in their defense. While they keep some treasure, they mostly delight in mental contests amongst themselves and are happy to accept visiting challengers.

Silver Dragons mostly keep to themselves, rarely attacking villages or ravaging settlements. They don’t do well in combat against large groups anyway, and they would much rather gather their treasure hoard by accepting tokens in exchange for their wisdom. They will try to live near wealthy nations where they are consulted often; in the best case an elderly silver dragon will receive the frequent patronage of a king or emperor.

Silver Dragons learn any language they are in contact with for more than a year, but they don’t really have to. By using telepathy they can communicate with people whose language they do not speak.

As a player, would you consult a Silver Dragon? How would you fight one or a group of them? As a GM, would you make this kind of source of information accessible? Comment below and share your thoughts.
