Dungeons and Dragons
IN THE SKIES ABOVE CIVILIZATION and wilderness alike, an astounding sight floats amid the clouds: an enormous oval island of stone covered in jagged peaks. The Floating Mountain, as it is called, is the home of Valamaradace, a gold dragon who has become far more interested in vengeance against the forces of evil than in the safety and well-being of the lesser creatures she used to zealously protect.
The Queen of the Floating Mountain is longer than most gold dragons of her age (not that there are many to compare her to), but she has substantially less mass. Valamaradace is more serpentine in build than most other golds, and she seems to wind her way through the air like a snake when she flies. Her claws are long and narrow, looking almost like humanoid fingers, and grant her impressive manual dexterity and grace when casting rituals.
As with other ancient golds, her scales seem to gleam with an inner radiance. Her eyes do as well,
with glowing slotted pupils that almost blend into the golden orbs that house them.
