Why aren't there any mixed dragons around?

I mean, dragons can breed with just about anything, right? If they not only can, but also feel fine about, occasionally having children with whatever lesser race, then why wouldn't they ever think about trying it with another dragon that just happens to be of a bit different color?

Like, gold and silver for instance? Both are lawful good and awesome. Why wouldn't they ever try it out? Or red and white? Chaotic evils both, sorta evil selfish brutes: if a red and red or a white and white can breed, then why not red and white? Make a pink dragon.

Seriously, this is bugging me.

>> No.10902340

both instances are breeding in weakness?

>> No.10902361

But as said, wouldn't it be even more so to do it with a non-dragon? At least this time the other one is a great mighty wyrm.

>> No.10902447

In both the examples, the coupling is between opposed elements. It can't really be immune to and yet vulnerable to both fire and cold, and so it evens out so that you have a dragon who has no elemental immunities or vulnerabilities, and a wet cough for a breath weapon because of the interaction between ice and fire.

But more seriously, Dragons are too arrogant and believe themselves too superior, breed by breed, to consider mating with a different colour generally. Nobody cares about a half dragon of a lesser race, but a dragon of two draconic parents of different colours is an abomination.

>> No.10902495

apply the half-dragon template to your dragon.
you're welcome

>> No.10902518

>no mixed dragons

Look... kid. I'll be nice.

Google Council of Wyrms.

BUT... now this is very important... SECOND. EDITION. VERSION.

There are rules for mixing dragon sub-species in the book.

They MAY have included these in 3.5 but I haven't read it so I can't be sure. I can only point you toward what I know.

>> No.10902535

So it's what, one and a half dragon?

>> No.10902592

Second eddition they could.
There was a heirchy of ranks.
The highest rank type was the dominant breeder, and offspring resulted in that type of dragon, with a small percentage being the other's type. No half breeds. That only hapens when crossig outside of their "race".

>> No.10902691

Council of Wyrms is a kickass book, nonetheless. Also 2e is fun too.

I'm a half dragon.

My dad was a dragon. My mom only told me about it a couple of years ago when my powers first started appearing. She hoped I would have been full human, so she wouldn't have to tell me the truth about my father (She told me he died when I was young.).

When my powers develop a bit more, I'm going to finally meet him.

Any other people who have a dragon parent out there? How did you deal with all that?

>> No.10902748


Not but when I tell my daughter her father was a prince, I won't be LYING necessarily!...

>> No.10902772

I found out my dad was a dragon when I was kind of young, so I got into this mentality of "acquire kingdoms, disregard bitches." Now, I'm about 100 and I don't have any possible consorts. :/

Pic unrelated.

>> No.10902835

Because when dragons crossbreed, their genetics fight for dominance in the eg, and end up one kind of dragon. There is an actual reason for the mechanical scale of power between types of dragons - their genetics combine with other species easily, but when two dragons mate, the one with the more powerful genetics wins.

Here! Though its a bit more obvious in me, hehe. The scales arn't really bugging me though, they give a nice intimidation factor.

My father was an epic bard, known throughout the land for his mastery of lightning based spells that made aged wizards envious. He would use these spells to enhance his performance upon his guitar to such a level that the gods took notice and brought him forth for a concert.

My mother was a red dragon.

I don't remember much of my father. I recall one bit of wisdom he passed down to me. "Son," he said, "Drink your whiskey before your beer and you'll have nothing to fear." He closed his eyes as if recalling the rest of his advice from ancient tomes. "If you drink your beer before your whiskey..." he trailed off. "Well, maybe you turned out okay, kid. Drink whatever the fuck you want."
