Greater Green Dragon


The Greater Green Dragons are found only in the heart of Splinterwood,

  The Greater Green Dragon begins it's life as a whelp born into a clutch of three or four. Sadly many of those eggs will never reach adulthood as, though a mother Dragon can be fierce and terrible, she can't always protect her offspring from predators. Lets watch now as one of the eggs begins to hatch. See the spine growing out of the young dragons nose. that's a form of egg tooth and will eventually fall off to be replaced by a leathery upper lip. Notice also that he has no wings at all. The wings of the Greater green dragon don't start to grow in for the first two years of it's life. This leaves it free to move quickly through the underbrush and hunt its food as well as avoid the predators that will be stalking it for a few years to come. Once the Dragon is borne his mother will leave the clutch to their own devices and are young male has to grow up very quickly. Now quickly for a Dragon is a relative term as it will take nearly 70 years before he reaches his full height but as we skip forward to his adolescence we see that he's the size of a large horse and his wings have fully developed at this point. It's time to try out the wings. tentatively he stands on the precipice of a large drop and with one final act of courage he pushes off leaving terra-firma behind as he soars (albeit awkwardly) through the skies. Yes, flying will take some getting used to but in time he will become an aerial master. Here we have caught up to our Dragon and we find him sniffing around an old rock quarry. For many years it was unknown why the greater green dragons were drawn to sites such as these and we sit quietly as he sniffs out and chooses a piece of rock and uncharacteristically begins to gnaw away at it until he has completely devoured it. It is the Magnesium in the rocks that he is after. Soon it will be dissolved in his stomach and is absorbed into his blood and transported into a special bladder where it becomes the final ingredient in a volatile cocktail of gasses that when mixed with oxygen explodes into a stream of flame. It is clear by his unhappy look that he's going to need some practice at directing the flow of his fire.
  As we skip forward another 60 years we see our young male at the peak of his maturity his wings are large and impressive. Looking upon him we see him as all have come to envison the Greater green dragon of Splinterwood. The Orange yellow coloration is as much to impress females as it is to scare off rivals and the same with his horns they aren't for defense as the teeth, fire, claws and spines are all good for defense. The Horns are to impress the ladies ... the bigger the horns the more likely he's going to have the right stuff ... they won't impale him because they curl around the side of his head. The Greater green dragon male's horns will grow for the remainder of his life and Dragon skulls have been found that have horns weighing in excess of 300 lbs.
  The spines are like fingernails, they can filed down and they will grow back. Often those who are talented enough to ride such a creature must file down the spines where the saddle will be. The tail of the greater dragon ends in a large bony protrusion that is shapes like a scythe perfect for splitting wood and skulls alike. Dragons will spend hours sharpening it on trees and rocks. Though the Splinterwood elves have taken to riding these great monsters they can only do so because the rider develops an affinity with the dragon at a very young age. This requires patience and a near psychic ability that only one elf in a thousand will possess. Most times it's best to just avoid this fierce and noble creature of the great Splinterwoods. Let's leave it now to continue on in it's journey of life.

Miniatures designed for use and compatability at 30mm scale, printable bases are included.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
