White Dragon
Dragon Collector's Set
Bart Carroll

Dragons. Of all the monsters in the world, dragons are the most feared. A fledgling group of adventurers might have what it takes to best a weak dragon, but the most powerful dragons are awesome, devastating creatures that rival even the gods.

Releasing on November 4th, the Dragon Collector’s Set contains five non-random, pre-painted, durable plastic miniatures for use in your D&D games. Two of the dragons are new sculpts that have never appeared in any previous D&D miniatures product.

Today, we look at one of these new sculpts, the white dragon!

Like all capable predators, white dragons are masters of their territories. They know the good hiding spots and optimal ambush points. They hunt not only well, but brutally. They kill swiftly and efficiently. They lack the cruelty of black dragons and the ferocity of reds. They also lack those dragons’ inclination to engage with or manipulate intruders or neighbors.

Unless potential victims quickly offer solid reasons not to kill them, white dragons likely slay first, eat second, and never consider asking questions. The few offers known to have saved fast-talking travelers included gifts of gems with promises of more gems to come or, even better, gifts and promises of more meat than the travelers themselves would provide if eaten.
