black dragon dice

Make your next black dragon unforgettable

Dragon encounters are supposed to be special. Black dragons are supposed to be nasty. Put them together and you get….crickets. It is tricky pulling off a great dragon encounter, especially when player expectations run high from watching movies and imagining Smaug and looking at gorgeous art in monster books.

The good news is you just need to be memorable. You do not need to be better than Tolkein. Just make dragon encounters fun and entertaining. Be larger than life when you game master dragons. Stand up on your chair and flap your arms. Raise your voice. Put on some heavy metal.

You can also make your next black dragon encounter unforgettable with this month’s Q-Workshop generator: roleplaying and black dragon, inspired by black and yellow dragon dice.
