Good lord, how many dragons does one title need?

Coming in 2017, the sequel, Dragon & Dragons: Revenge of the Draconic Dragons.

I'm just glad Hiram McDaniels is still finding work.

A DnD campaign based on Night Vale. Just think about it.

The white head on that dragon looks like a T-Rex :)

I'd be completely in favor of that; a mysterious bard in the town square narrating all the strange happenings going on while the party tries to figure out why those deer keep starring into people's windows. Spooky and hilarious!

Not only is that a dragon, that is an avatar of the evil dragon goddess Tiamat, she would be far larger if it was the actual Tiamat, seeing as her size is supposed to be "Unfathomable". Heres hoping that they will make another avatar of Tiamat figure, the old one was cool, but the paint application on the older huge minis are a bit shoddy.

I remember playing Red Hand of Doom. This was one of the best 3.5 modules and is in top 3 list of best modules of all time in my opinion. She is such a great villian and was the great "final boss fight" and the end of such an epic module. I even did a conversion for Pathfinder when system first came out as a test of the new system. She still was just as pleasing and epic in that system as well.

A five-headed dragon?! I would say that's Tiamat THE dragon GOD.

Ah teasers. No game play or story snippets, just a cool cinematic. I can't even really tell the genre from the trailer. Is it another MMO? An RPG like Dragon Age? Or will it play like God of War?

Oh well. I like D&D, so I'll keep my eye on it and see where it goes.

Qvar:
A five-headed dragon?! I would say that's Tiamat THE dragon GOD.

So basically all one would need is a party of four.
Probably a Knight, a Monk or Ninja, a Black Mage and a White Mage.
They call themselves the "Warriors of Light".
And of course the fight will be easier if they don't face Warmech first.

Okay - I kidd, I kidd.

OP: Most of the trailer looked okay, though I'm not much for tabletop gaming myself.

However, really didn't like the dragon design. Was it just me or was the dragon REALLY stiff looking? And the image on the Escapist banner for this article - I thought the dragons (looked like many there even though it's one) looked goofy. Like this was a parody or something. Apparently, it isn't.

Guess I'm spoiled by so many great looking dragon's in video games lately...

Am I the only one that felt that the trailer doesn't look very good? The animation kinda reminds me of what I see in bad demo reels for freshman character animators.

Maybe I'm way too used to seeing Blizzard quality videos or even those of the latest League of Legends Dawn video. This seems like it would be state of the art 8 years ago.

Yes, I felt the dragon was very stiffly animated. Not very fluid at all.

They should activate a trap card. ;)

Qvar:

An avatar. If it was the actual god, there wouldn't be much of an adventure. It'd be like assaulting the ocean with a stick.

Heh, went here to make Nightvale joke, got sniped by the staff, nice.

Qvar:
A five-headed dragon?! I would say that's Tiamat A dragon GOD.

Fixed.

Or alternatively.

Qvar:

Bahamut is also a dragon god.

He's the good one.

They only had three people in their group? They are going to get killed! Granted the tank knows his stuff but another ranged class would have been good

-M

<3 Tiamat. Possibly my favorite D&D villain. I've wanted to play a Cleric to her for years, alas "evil campaigns" are hard to come by.
