Maybe you should read up on the subject before you go spouting your ignorance.

There's a Third Edition Dungeons and Dragons book called Draconomicon that is a really awesome read. I remember it having about 30 pages just on the physiology of dragons, including a really awesome diagram of the inside of one of their eyes having two lenses, explaining how their vision is so good. Definitely more on the Dragonology-style side of things than a novel or series though.

Take a look at This Book for some inspiration.

You might be interested in The Draconomicon.

It's a 3rd (maybe 3.5) edition book, but iirc a lot of the information is flavor / fluff, and doesn't depend on an edition.

Edit: and if anyone has the book, maybe you could help OP out with his questions.

You should check out the Dragon Magazine and the Draconomicon. Just about everything is pulled from those canon sources.

  • There would obviously be fluctuation between the value of larger and smaller items. I simplified information to fit into a single page.

  • Yes. 50 gp for each bone, claw, or fang. I'm sure there would be fluctuation, but again, i was going for simplicity.

  • Scales are a part of the hide of the dragon. To remove a scale specifically would destroy that portion of hide. If you want to scales, it's the hide check.

  • The sources don't intimate that it takes longer than a day to do the job. But I can understand it taking longer. DM discretion I guess.

  • Sure. An argument can be made that raw components typically cost less than the final product. I made assessments based on the cost of the items they can be bade into and the value of a "super rare" material. Again, DM discretion.

  • Bones are brittle and hollow. According to the Draconomicon, only a thigh bone is suitable for the bow. In a larger dragon, sure. More are suitable.

  • The harvest check is Survival. I run a few different game types with parties, and one of them uses a Microlite20 variant. So for them the check is (Dex+Subterfuge). I re-uploaded the 5e version here and it has Survival now.

  • I agree. In situations where dragons are more rare, that would be the case. I made assumptions on the average DM's desire to have dragons in the world. If you have a lower magic economy, then you can add a multiplier. I included the HomeBrewery source code for those who want to make edits for their own.

    Edit: I don't know why the bullet points aren't working. Sorry.

I would get a copy of the 3.5e Draconomicon. Look for it cheap or free mind you. Its a great book with zillions of strange dragons and dragonoids, from all over the multiverse. Amazing book, but you will need to rework the stat blocks a bit to make them 5e friendly.

See if you can track down a copy of the 3.5 Draconomicon. Apart from being a very good resource in general, it goes in to some very good detail about just exactly what you can do with the parts of a dragon and how much different parts can sell for. I've used it almost as-is for 5e with no trouble.

According to the Draconomicon, this is more or less what D&D dragons do with their food. They don't poop. They breathe fire.

u/MsgGodzilla · 1 pointr/DnD

I have not, the only Draconomicon I've ever read is this one.

I did read the reviews on that page, and one guy says the older Draconomicon was not nearly as detailed as the 3.5 version, but again, I can't speak on that.

u/iAmTheTot · 1 pointr/DnD

Oh man. Thank you for showing me this book. Using Amazon's "look inside" feature alone (lets you preview the book), this looks like a goddamn gold mine of lore and stuff. I am ashamed I didn't know about this before.

u/murarara · 1 pointr/mattcolville

Sounds like a good idea, like everyone has said already.

If you can, get yourself a copy of the Draconomicon for getting more details on how the dragons are and live and what not, I can't vouch for other versions, but the 3.5 Draconomicon is written in a very neat way like an explorer/naturalist writing their observations in a journal.
