[PFRPG] Dragon Templates - Volume 1 - A to H

Dragon Templates (and Variants), Volume 1 - A to H, has 23 templates ranging from a -1 to +3 Challenge Rating (CR). The templates are light on detail, providing an introductory paragraph or two, a brief note on the physical changes that the template causes, and lastly the mechanics which sometime come with drawbacks. While some of the ideas are interesting and solid, they are not well developed and the CR adjustments do not seem to always align with the powers granted. The hybrid (half dragon/half something else) variant is especially sketchy but the albino, broken and glass templates have a considerable amount of potential.

If you use a lot of dragons in your campaign, or if you just want the ones that show up to be unique and interesting, these products will provide inspiration and a starting point for various unusual dragons but they are only a starting point, you will need to work out the finer details and balance them yourself.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

This is rather fun... in the quest to add greater detail and variety to that most iconic of monsters, the dragon, here is a selection of templates to apply to your base dragon stats, to give all manner of additional features to them. Some will create 'variants' or 'sub-species' of known dragon types, while others add little quirks and different abilities to whatever dragon to whom you choose to apply the template.

Starting off with the Albino - NOT a white dragon but one of any shade born without pigmentation - there is a whole range of things you can do with your dragons. Maybe he's amphibious, or has a weird breath weapon that literally encases its target in quick-setting amber. Maybe it was too mean to die and has become a ghost. Or it can blink (as in the spell), or it appears to be made of glass...

There's a lot of fun to be had here... Now, dragons should always be the high spot of an adventure, something exciting to encounter, but these templates can be used to make them even more interesting and unusual... and we've only got to 'H'! Look out for more...
