What's Occurring 1

These are the tales of the Dragon Kingdoms. In the constellation of Draco there are fifteen systems. Each system is ruled by a dragon family. In each system are people of different ideas and cultures but with one basic principle alike. That is, to rule the whole constellation and to find the mythical system of Mythril. These are the tales of those people and the dragons that rule them. Be prepared for a magnificent spectacle lasting millennia. Come and join us as we see how these people learn to live (and die) side by side. Be prepared for dragons!! Welcome to the Dragon Kingdoms. Here is our tale.

Of course, with all that in mind we better have a really good back story. So pop on over to the World Building section and 'gen' up on some of the history and background of the different people and worlds and don't forget those dragons!

 

What's Occurring 2

If you like World Building fantasy then this is the website for you. If you like wargaming - with a difference - then this is the site for you. If you like making models and painting them then this is the site for you. In fact, this site covers many topics but mainly to do with dragons. Hence the title. Did you ever wonder if Ancient Romans had fought Ming Dynasty Chinese what the outcome would have been like. Did you ever think that WWI trench warfare could ever wargame Napoleonics?

Well, now you can dig out those old 1/72 soldiers, get painting, make some wonderful scenery and models and get them fighting each other.

 

Worlds

Let me introduce you to the Draco Constellation and the solar systems that inhabit it - and who fits in where.

The Draco Constellation is situated to the left of the Northern hemisphere Summer night sky. It consists of numerous solar systems but we will concern ourselves with the major twelve (thirteen - more later). If you take a look at the image below you can see the names clearly. I have taken some liberties with the spelling of some of the systems to make them a little easier to pronounce. Click on each of the worlds to the right and you can learn more about them and which of my wargaming systems will fit into each system. I am sure you will all have your favourite as we continue onwards but we will go over them all - in time.

 
Background

In the lands of the Dragon Kingdoms there are many systems that are controlled by dragons. The dragons are typified by a certain colour and/or a characteristic. See the table to the right to find out more about the dragons themselves. About 5,000 years ago portals opened on Earth and these portals 'took' people from different races to different locations in Draco to be the slaves of the dragons - not just for food but also to look after the worlds of the Draco Constellations. Portals have been opening and closing until they stopped just after World War 1. These portals only open between the different worlds so that the dragons can lead their people to steal from other worlds; and other dragons. Read more about the portals by clicking on the portal picture to get a free downloadable booklet explaining more about the history.

  • Drake Lure is restless

    Drake Lure looked out of his castle top window and over the city of Monstronia. He thought back to when he had first arrived here as a young vampire - oh, at least five hundred years ago now. It had been a time of hard learning and rapid advancement for those who could adjust in time. For those who couldn't, well, best not to dwell too much on them. And here he was Master Lord of all Al-Anhaken.

     

    So why didn't he feel contented? Perhaps it was the continuous wars with the other systems, perhaps it was the in-fighting between his fellow Al-Anhakian monsters, perhaps it was always having to check your back from those who you thought were your friends, or perhaps it was tomorrow when Soultooth - the Al-Anhakian dragon  - descended for her once a month visit.

     

    Drake turned before the knock on the door sounded. Vampire hearing was good and his faithful retainer - Goldblood - was not adverse to sneaking up on his master to keep Drake on his toes. Who knows where the shadows of deceit lurk; he had been assassinated twice in the past sixty years and fourteen times in the previous four hundred plus before that. The thing is it's difficult to catch a vampire unawares and Drake was always lucky enough to escape these assassinations by virtue of Goldblood's...ah, hum! Well, blood. For Goldblood has that one in a million gene that is a saviour to vampires, namely HHH, or Goldblood, which is the one type of blood that will resurrect a vampire from any (im)mortal injury. And that is why Drake kept Goldblood on such a short leash as all the vampires in Monstronia, let alone Al-Anhaken or the outer systems, wanted Goldblood's blood as much as Goldblood wanted to keep it. And that is why he would taste of his master once a month to extend his mortal life to now over four hundred and twenty four years.

     

    But Goldblood was - at long last - dying. And Drake would actually miss him. Not just because of the blood but also because he was the one person that Drake could trust and confide in. And that is what made Drake the most restless. These final days were dragging out and other vampires were lining up to drink one last drop out of Goldblood. For each drop would increase their power exponentially. And every bit of power was what every vampire wanted. But Drake had other plans for that blood. He had heard of a Perll scientist named T'toth of the Clan Dia who could store blood indefinitely. For the Perll were always looking of ways to make their technology pay - and blood was the number one trading commodity between the Perll and Al-Anhaken. Whereas the Al-Anhakians had mythril to spare which was what drove the inception devices that in turn drove the portals and the space drives of the Perll's fleet.

Dragons

Each world system has a predominant dragon who is master of that system. Each dragon has different characteristics and a different colour. Basically, that makes it easier to model and identify the dragons and the world systems that go along with it.
