Green 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 green dragon!

Few dragons are as utterly reviled among humanoids as green dragons, known also as forest dragons. Although green dragons might not be as powerful or as destructive as some of their kin, they are innately and instinctively deceptive. They lie as easily as people speak, and they are good at it. They love intrigue and prefer to achieve their goals through guile and double-dealing over any other means.

Any brute can hunt, but it takes skill and intelligence to trick one’s prey into offering itself for dinner. Adding this attitude to a green’s belligerent nature—to a green dragon, a weak creature is either prey or pawn, and nearly all creatures are weak—makes the creature a loathsome, conniving beast.
