Book Dragon[edit]

These small dragons have amazing abilities throughout my years of studying them, and talking to them. They are in fact able to manipulate magic to cast powerful spells, and they have the ability to change their size from a creature that is the size of a book, to a large majestic beast standing ten feet tall, and they can become someone’s familiar. its truly fascinating these little dragons, but two questions evades me; What is their original names, and who made them. These questions eludes me, but they apparently like the name book dragon for some reason, maybe it has some correlation to whom created them, but my time in the feywild is coming to an end, and soon I’ll have to leave, and head back home. I will back to see you all again.

Physical Description[edit]

Appearance. Book dragons can take on the looks of many appearances held by other dragons with alterations of its own, but their small form is usually around the size of 2ft, and weighing around 30lbs. While in big form they can range from 8ft-12ft in size and weigh roughly 900lbs.

History[edit]

They originally are from the feywild they managed to get into the material plane through a planarian portal, but they can make great pets, friends, or familiars. They are usually hard to find, mostly only being run across by magic users themselves. They have two sizes they can change in and out of... though they mostly prefer small form. They are natural spell casters.
