A black dragon

Black dragons are entities of disease and rot, corrupting the world from their swampy homes.

Description[edit | edit source]

Physically, black dragons are most distinguished by their horns, which protrude from the sides of their heads and wrap around, projecting forward. A large frill adorns the upper part of the neck. They smell like rotting vegetation and foul water, or like the powerful acid they can breathe.
