Dragons of Faerûn is a 160-page sourcebook for Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 released in August 2006.

Official synopsis[]

The Forgotten Realms' Answer to the Draconomicon

Dragons of Faerûn features an in-depth look at the dragons of the Forgotten Realms. Dungeon Masters are given information on adventuring in the Year of Rogue Dragons, on specific dragons and dracoliches of Faerûn, and on how those beasts might interact with player characters. DMs are given information on organizations that PCs can belong to or work against, such as the evil Cult of the Dragon. Also included is information on how to run a campaign that features the Year of Rogue Dragons—the one time, every 1,000 years, when the dragons of Faerûn rampage across the continent.

In addition, this book includes ready-to-play adventures; new traps and treasures to be found within dragons’ lairs; new dragon spells; and new monsters.
