“There once lived a dragon, with golden scales that shimmered as majestically as the most beautiful gem in the whole world.” – the old man sitting by the fire said as four children gathered around to listen. “Wings rippling like a ship’s sail, he could fly to the end of the world. He was wise, strong, and powerful and his name was Gaxloranthar.” – he finished with almost a whisper, ever-ready to continue the story.

Gold dragons are the apex predator of the metallic kind, true warriors of justice, righteousness, and everything goodness stands for. They are relentless enemies of evil that they pursue until destroyed.

They are graceful and magical, and can even polymorph into a humanoid creature, hiding their presence. They have telepathic abilities and they prefer to parlay and negotiate, leaving fighting for the last available option if all else fails.

Gold Dragons are usually the so-called beacons of light, having a major role in the politics and dealings of the lands they live in. Their true name is often unknown, and they can go by many, though some good examples are Palarandusk, Lareth, and Aurinax.
