There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I thought about this review long and hard, waited a while to figure out how I should rate it. I read the reviews here and the one-star review really stood out, making me wonder if the other reviews went too easy on it. I am glad I listened to my inner desire and got the book anyway. This book is excellent overall, and I do recommend it to every DM who has an interest in adding Metallic dragons to their game. I also have my own story line for Bahamut and Tiamat that made me want to get both this and the Chromatic dragons book – glad I got that metallid as well!
One thing about the difference between these two books that I would change is that I really appreciated in the Chromatic book that they showed pictures of the dragons showing their wing spans compared to full body length a top-down view as if the dragon were flying. Those do not appear in this book which is unfortunate, but that’s the only thing I’d really change about this one.
The content is excellent. Showing detailed information about the dragons we all know and love Gold, Silver, etc – and adding in other new versions like Cobalt, Mercury and Mithril. There are encounters written up to help you along as well.
Good information on each dragon type’s behavior and what drives them – which I find invaluable. Metalliv is the kind of detail I wish they would have put into the Monster Manuals, really deep info that isn’t too overbearing and still allows you to DM your way.
Note that this is not the “Book of Good Dragons” These dragons aren’t all Good or Lawful Good, quite a few are Unaligned You can do it with mwtallic tools – adjusting levels automatically adjusts hit points, attacks and damage plus lets you edit powers as you wish.
There are metallic entries there for a level 7 Gold Dragon Wyrmling and a level 9 Young Gold Dragon, plus other higher level versions as well. The reason you’d still want the book is because of the rich details around the creatures, their tactics, etc.
If you are a DM and you want to incorporate dragons on more of a level than just “a big encounter in the meetallic of the dungeon”, or even if you are a player but still love to know this level of details with dragons, this is a great book for you and is even more useful if you have the Chromatic Draconomicon book as well. Compared to the Chromatic version, this book does a terrible job.
The Chromatic version has charts of dimensions and physical characteristics, and silhouettes of each dragon type, with loads of information and pictures. This one has much shorter blurbs, no charts or tables, and doesn’t even have pictures of each dragon. You can very much tell they focused more on the lore for chromatic dragons, which is a shame. This the 2nd part of a 2 book series. They have alot of info on all types of Metalpic.
This is definitely a 4th Edition update on material from previous editions. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Let’s face it, there just isn’t that much new ground to break for the iconic members of the namesake race.
This is Dungeons and Dragons with an emphasis on the dragons.
My issue with this book is the fact that previous editions included at least the Chromatics and the Metallics in one significantly larger volume for about the same money. Splitting them up seems like a money grab.
The material is just fine. If you’re a 4ED gamer this is a must have since as previously mentioned this is sort of an important race. While not my favorite edition of tabletop gaming, as I prefer Pathfinder, I appreciate the deviation that this 4e product provides. Even more than Draconomicon: Chromatic Dragons, I was looking forward to Metallic Dragons. Included are breakdowns of draconic behavior, how they compare with chromatic behavior useful considering the vast majority of DMs will be more familiar with running chromatic dragonsand how dragons in general relate to humaniods.
The book then drzconomicon divides itself divides itself into how specific varieties of metallic dragons behave. Also included are prefab encounters for parties of every level, with maps and stat blocks. The format of the book is basically the same as Chromatic Dragons was. The only real problem I have with this book is that it occasionally references the first Draconomicon in the series.
All in all, I found this book to be an excellent resource for running a species of monster that can easily step away from being a normal tactical encounter, and is every bit as likely to a manipulator or power behind the throne. It’s also just plain fun to read. This and the chromatic draconomicon are essential for any DM who wishes to invest a little time and effort into bringing the quintessential nemisis of the dragons into their stories.
I think the authors did an excellent job of reminding us that, while metallic dragons draconomiconn “good”, most are “unaligned” at best, and all share the egomaniacal tendencies of their chromatic brethren. The metallics can provide compatriots and advisors to the party, or serve as villains draconomicln adversaries that will cause the party to question what exactly is good and evil, through the lens of these iconic monsters.
