High Dragons

According to myth and legend, the six High Dragons were created by the Gods as messengers between the mortal races and the divine. Though immortal by nature, a High Dragon may be slain. Their offspring, the lesser dragons, once claimed secluded lairs across the continent and were known for vast intelligence and almost limitless power, but as the mortal races proliferated across the lands the dragons vanished. Some say the time of dragons has passed, that the last of them have either been killed or have left the realm never to return. Others believe the lesser dragons have fallen but that the High Dragons remain, isolated in places unknown to man, watching as the eons pass. Still other mortals—often those on the fringes of society: hermits in the woods, refugees wandering unkept lands—other mortals insist, despite being stigmatized as raving fools, that they have seen shapes in the clouds, heard rumblings beneath the valleys, or felt the forests quake.
