The Draconic Isles
The Draconic Isles are a series of hundreds of islands still under the control of the dragon kings of old. Upon seeking it’s own hoard, young dragons also take an island as part of their traditional right of passage. Islanders are expected to honor the dragon lord of their island with tribute and depending upon the dragon varying degrees of servitude that often border on worship. As a dragon grows in power, it will often challenge other dragons for more prized islands in order to increase their individual hoard. Tiamat’s favor is also in high demand amongst younger dragons who’s future conquests may very well be determined by the Dark Lady’s personal preference. The most powerful of these dragon lords make their lairs on the central islands that are by far the greatest in land mass as well as humanoid population and resources. The Draconic Isles are a very heated place politically at this time, with younger dragons constantly seeking to usurp the power and wealth of elder dragons in an ever shifting pecking order that they call The Great Game.
