The Dragons

Long before the age of humans, the Dragons had a world-spanning empire overseen by the Divine Dragons. This lasted for a few thousand years until the dragon species began to decline. Some dragon tribes sealed their power away and took human form, while others slowly devolved into mindless beasts. Most Dragons retreated to isolated communities, but some traveled the world and interacted with humans.

The Golden Empire

Divine Dragons visited the Golden Land in its early years, when the humans there were scattered tribes that had only recently united. They supposedly shared their knowledge and blessings with the man who would become the First Emperor. Later Golden sources would brag about their connection to the Divine Dragons, but disputed how much the great Empire could truly "learn" from them.


Locations

Lucus Draconis

A sacred wood in the Empire's former Portus province, said to be where the First Emperor first met with the Dragons. It was once the home of a Boar Leviathan that terrorized the neighbouring provinces until Zir slew it. The Golden people built a temple to the Dragons on the site of the battle. The forest is currently home to Mercy, a dragon descendant of Zir.

Seat of the Dragon

A mountain temple near Lucus Draconis. Later meetings with the First Emperor and the Dragons would take place here, where it was easier to see the stars. As few others were allowed inside, details are scarce.
