Ey. New to the community, not to the game. On to the purpose of the post.

Has anyone bought the Draconomicon yet? Is it worth the cash?

I your players will see a dragon of any type more than twice in the future, then yes. That and it's just a damn cool read, since it's all about background and tactics and motivation. It's a lot more flavor text than actualy rule info, so you might consider it pleasure reading.

Well. I'm more often a player than a DM, not quite ready to create a campaign. I would be interested in dragon flavor reading. Who doesn't love dragons, right?

I think there were mentions of templates in the previews, any info you could share on those?

I seem to remember Dracolich, skeletal, and zombie dragon templates. There may be more but they elude me now.

Just don't use the book for metagaming purposes. It's still quite DM-oriented.

My husband bought it... I haven't actually picked it up and read it myself yet, but he really seems to like it and has recommended it to several people.

Yes, it's worth it. For one thing, the pictures are much better in print. For another, the wyrmlings are cute. The feats are nasty, the spells are gnarly, and the prestige classes are, draconic. I'm about halfway into it and along with having tons of info (suitable considering how much some dragons weigh) it's also a good read.

Best yet, there are guidelines on how to play a dragon to best effect in your campaign. That red dragon may be a rare Lawful Good one, or he could be using the party to his own nefarious ends.

BTW, if you buy your copy through one of my Amazon.com links I get a commission.:)

Humble? Me?:D
