A Desolation of Dragons

Dragons invade the world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game in Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Dragons Unleashed! This collection of deadly foes and potent allies reveals 15 of Golarion’s most powerful and influential dragons, from cunning draconic manipulators to great wyrms capable of testing even the most experienced adventurers. Dragons of every chromatic and metallic breed fill this collection, along with several mysterious primal dragons and regal imperial dragons.

Each entry includes full statistics for running the dragon, details on its history and ambitions, descriptions and maps of the dragon’s lair, the contents of its hoard, and more. Unleash Golarion’s ultimate monsters on your game with Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Dragons Unleashed!

Inside this book, you’ll find:

  • Aashaq the Annihilator, an ancient red dragon priestess of Dahak, god of destruction and treachery.
  • Fahrauth, an umbral dragon who has set himself up as a living god in the Darklands.
  • Maghara, the ghost of a copper dragon, who guards a ruined lighthouse known as the Guidestar of Desna.
  • Moschabbatt, an ancient magma dragon who jealously conceals lost secrets of the dwarves.
  • Eleven other exemplars of dragonkind, from brass dragon hatchlings to elder chromatic wyrms!
Dragons Unleashed is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting.

By Savannah Broadway, Joseph Carriker, Adam Daigle, Amanda Hamon, Steve Kenson, Tito Leati, Patrick Renie, F. Wesley Schneider, Tork Shaw, Ray Vallese, and Jerome Virnich.

Dragon NPCs, ready to roll.

5/5

There is something here for just about every power level, and each dragon (or clutch, in one case!) is well-realized in terms of their potential uses in a campaign.

From an Umbral Dragon with pretensions of divinity to a truly vicious Red Dragon Cleric of Dahak, you'll find both useful stats and inspiration to burn in this book. Highly recommended- it's what convinced me to become a subscriber.


4/5

I've reviewed this book over on RPGGeek.com.


Lots of ready-made dragons!

4/5

Read my full review on my blog.

Dragons Unleashed provides gamemasters with a ready-made selection of dragons that they can include in their games. The good dragons can be kindly advisers or provide aid in times of need, while the evil dragons make for great final villains in campaigns that lead inexorably to their destruction. Gamemasters will get a lot out of this book.


There Be Dragons!

5/5

What can I say about this book that hasn't been already other then it's awesome. I love dragons and this book delivers with 15 different kinds of dragons, each is a famous one from the Innersea region. You get background, minions, enemies, treasure listing, liars and more for each one. The one thing I am disappointed is there was no entry for either a crystal or cloud dragon but other then that it is a great buy.


Not Revisited, Unleashed!

5/5

Similar to the also amazing Castles of the Inner Sea, this book has outdone itself. The sheer amount of amazing content packed into such a small book excites me beyond description. Each of the 15 dragons come alive in their respective chapters. A full background, description, and stat block make them simple to drop into any campaign as either an encounter or even the seed for an entire campaign's BBEG.

It doesn't stop there either. Each dragon has a lair lovingly detailed and mapped out. The lairs are so close to being a mini-adventure, that with just a little bit of extra prep each dragon could easily be a multi session excavation (or mini-campaign). My absolutely favorite part is at the very end of each chapter: the hoard. Every dragon has a thoughtfully collected hoard specific to their history and personality. This alone can be worth it's weight in gold if lifted by a cunning GM.

While it is fitting, my only gripe is that most of the dragons are of a very high CR. This makes the book a little less accessible to GMs that like to stay with low level parties/campaigns. However there is still enough of a CR range for most gaming groups to get something out of this book. Honestly, it isn't even enough of a gripe to detract a star from my rating of the book, more just something I wanted to point out to those looking for a little bit more disclosure.

To the 10 authors who worked to assemble this amazing book, I thank you all for putting together such a cohesive and comprehensive title.

I'm guessing Pham Duc Quan (sovreign) and Daralathyxl (red) may be represented.


From what I recall, Mengkare's alignment is being left purposefully ambiguous until they can spare a lot of words, as there are a few peculiarities that need to be reconciled.

If there's no Mengkare, I hope Trilochan will show up at least!

And imperative!

Love all things dragon, so I'm really looking forward to this one!


Any idea whether or not a female red dragon, male silver dragon, or a female gold dragon will be stated in this book?

I feel like I'm missing a reference

Female Red Dragon: Synn (from Shadows over Mystara)

Male Silver Dragon: Deszeldaryndun (from Forgotten Realms)

Female Gold Dragon: Valamaradace (also from Forgotten Realms)

Silver Crusade

Never heard of those...


If the last two are from forgotten realms then I don't see a legal way to use them on Golarion.

I am fine with male gold dragons and female silver dragons. Also since the most famous gold dragon is male on Golarion I don't see them having more then one of the same type in this book.

So when are going to get an update on the cover art and product description?

given they've said big M won't be in this, the gender of the Gold is still open.

To be honest I can't think of to many famous dragons in the Innersea Region that aren't already dead, or undead.

The wikiDoes! and that's not even the exhaustive list

I think Berselius just meant that would the stat blocks in the book offer matches for the type and gender of the dragons he's looking for. It's pretty much a given they won't be those dragons by name from those D&D campaign settings.

Other than from a story perspective, does the gender of the dragon matter at all statistically? I'd think in terms of using the dragons in a game the main consideration would be their type/age category/CR.


Will we be getting the final cover soon?

The title begs the question:

How much does a Dragon Leash cost?

Silver Crusade

I honestly think that's the best horn formation I've ever seen on a black dragon.

needs to know more about Maghara now


Awesome cover and I also like the horn formation of the black dragon.


Draconomicon Mk. 2...


Great cover~


So we have Red, Magma, Copper, and Umbral dragons, so come on Silver, Bronze, Cloud, Crystal, Forest, and Green dragons.


I love magma dragons. Definitely grabbing this!

Aashaq the Annihilator is a red lady-dragon. She is pretty scary. Promise.


Aashaq almost sounds like a female Ashardalon... ;)

I'm only slightly familiar with Ashardalon, but I don't think Aashaq has much in common with that dragon aside from being a crazy powerful red dragon. Anything else in common would be coincidence.


Only a month away for this book, can't wait.

...The author list was updated? The last time I saw an author list updated for Paizo after the original writeup was for module 3 of serpent's skull... Please tell me that this isn't for the same reason as back then?

It was updated from the "Paizo Staff" placeholder.

Nothing unfortunate happened. :)

Yep, Joseph Carriker, Amanda Hamon, and Tork Shaw each wrote two dragons and the rest of us tackled one.

Guess which one Wes did. It's shocking. I'm sure no one will guess correctly. ;)

You have no idea how happy that makes me. I'm really rather looking forward to this release.

Okay, you have 10 authors. Three of them wrote two dragons each (for a total of 6) and the rest (10-3=7) wrote one each. That only adds up to 13 dragons. I think you guys left something out here.

Shocking eh? Shocking as in Lightning Breath? As in Blue Dragon!?! Or perhaps a Bronze Dragon?


It could also be a cloud dragon or sky dragon since they have electrical based breath weapons.

Hint. :D


I dislike the chromatic and metallic dragons, I don't care for the asian dragons from bestiary 3, but ALL the dragons from bestiary 2 are among my favorite creatures! Happy to see Umbral and Magma dragons there!!! I hope to see Brine, Cloud and especially some Crystal Dragon as well! Crystal and Cloud dragons get much to less shine time.

Still vaguely hoping to see a mention of Trilochan, but even if not, I am still *so* getting this the second it comes out!


Will Kazavon get a stat block in this one?
