Reptilian beasts of titanic proportions and ferocious mien, True Dragons ruled Iriel for untold millennia prior to the rise of mankind. (See Draconian Empire.) A living Dragon has not been seen by mortal eyes since before the advent of written language. One could easily dismiss the past existence of Dragons were it not for the cyclopean ruins that dot the landscape, and the occasional petrified remains unearthed in quarries.
While True Dragons have been extinct for over five thousand years, certain breeds of lesser dragons still thrive in Iriel. Savage, dimwitted Wyvern stalk mountainous hinterland, and tiny, gregarious pseudodragons can be found in forests across the land. There are humanoid races that also bear the markings of dragon kind: Kobolds have a distinctly draconic appearance and certain humans have been known to possess an innate aptitude for draconic magic.
