Black Spire III: A Twisted King
The following dragons are famous through the world.
- Aurathel – protector of the Valley of the Elves and Cloudspire, Aurathel is a golden dragon. Much like his elven allies, he is aloof – so aloof that he refuses to engage with any business outside of the sheltered valley. Even the invasion of The Alkerathi Empire failed to draw his attention away from Cloudspire. His failure to intervene made the wood elves lose faith in him, and they no longer call him their protector.
- Shamilthurax is the staunch ally of House Rimtar, of the dwarves, and sworn protector of the Mountainhomes. By the terms of The Dragon Pact, Shamilthurax must protect The Silver Kingdom from invaders, and in return, the dwarves pay tribute to and protect its vast hoard of silver. Shamilthurax is a silver dragon, known to keep bonds and oaths very sacred.
- Razethar was the would-be protector of Men, aiming to strike a deal with them akin to the agreements between Aurathel and the elves and Shamilthurax and the dwarves. Unfortunately for both Razethar and the race of Men, his scheming resulted in the collapse of The Alkerathi Empire, and it is believed Razethar was killed in the ensuing chaos.
- Tali’Zorah is a blue dragon inhabiting The Blue Desert. An enigmatic creature, very little is known about her designs. Some people whisper that she has an interest in the halflings.
- Dhuzumpil is (allegedly) the draconic patron of the gnomes, but very little is known about its nature, or how closely it sticks to any formalized rules. It’s a copper dragon, whimsical and unpredictable as the gnomes themselves.
- Azarath is supposedly the draconic patron of the orcs and goblins, a half-mad black dragon dwelling somewhere deep within the Hag Fens. Nobody has ever seen or heard of Azarath, however – the only evidence that it even exists is the goblin clans that worship it fervently.
