Concept: Magma Elemental Dragon
"When it absolutely, positively, MUST be destroyed in a hail of molten rock.."- Theodinius the Watcher (Elementals, Wyrms and Demons- a Users Guide).
One of the more dangerous breeds, the Magma Elemental Dragon tends to Mother Earths flow of molten resources. Inhabiting surface volcanos and magma channels in the Earths core, they periodically leave their roosts to hunt down the necessary resources needed to feed her. For elementalists and wizards: Approach with caution, these are very territorial dragons. They are very loyal to their Mother and attempting to harness their power can prove very dangerous.

Ice Elemental Dragon
Concept: Frigid Dragon
This species of dragons can only be found in massive ice canyons. At birth they are very fragile but a special material in their scales allows them to gradually build ice to serve as a primary layer of armor. Soon after birth the glands near the mouth begin to produce liquid nitrogen, which the young can use by biting into their prey. By the time they become adults they will have learned to control their own glands well enough to emit freezing breaths. The hardest part of its armor is the head, the ice particles can become so condensed to match the strength of any diamond. Because of this, greed-filled kings have lost empires to gain this material, as jewelry made from it is valued highly and weapons made from it last for several generations.

Concept: Adamantine Spar Dragon
Every Team of Adamant Core Drillers has its own Adamantine Spar Dragon and Handler on hand to help locate new seams of Adamantine. The Dragons outer skin is partially composed of the silky brown mineral and they have an innate ability to locate the mineral at source. The Spar Dragons are passive creatures until they come into direct contact with Adamantine and at that time the handlers (or Tweekers) really earn their hefty fees. An excited Spar Dragon can sometimes ruin mining equipment, destroy mining camps and even endanger the Miners when in a frenzy. The handler attempts to calm the creature with ion-charged rods but once a Dragon is out of control it is easy to see why Handlers are amongst the most respected folk in the Mining Clans.

Concept: Coral Dragon
Coral dragons are the only shallow-sea dragons on Earth. They troll the ocean floor, gobbling up sponges, mollusks, and cnidarians for nurishment. The dragons' bodies range from 5 to 5000ft (1.5-1524m) long! Coral dragons are commonly seen by humans but rarely recognized, because they bury their heads in the sand when they sleep. It is because of this, that the largest coral dragons are mistaken for reefs.

Concept: Hydrogen Dragon
A special kind of floating dragon filled with hydrogen. Commonly nicknamed "suicide dragons", these creatures plague the western mountains with their knack of exploding at the slightest thing. They were once used in castle sieges for their destructive abilities, but it was not uncommon for them to annihilate both sides at once due to explosive chain reactions. How they have survived as a species this far is considered somewhat a mystery; especially since they easily over-encumber their light bodies with too much food and crash.

Concept: Lightblood dragon
: The Lightblood dragon gets it's name for it's bio-luminescent blood which is extremely visible when irritated. As he runs, the ions trigger a reaction known as "lightning". He can easily use this to his advantage in conflict, but for those close combat situations, he's developed an organic armor around his head and back. They often spar amongst eachother, but are a generally peaceful among themselves.

Concept: Charolite Dragon
The Charolite Dragon is just like its mineral of origin a very rare sight.
Several expeditions to the Charo river around where these dragons are rumoured to lurk, have gone missing and strange reports of "the ground coming alive and snapping at the miners" from surviving prospectors have begun to fly around.

Concept: Tar Pit Dragon
Tar Pit Dragons were once noble and graceful creatures that filled the skies of Alargomorth with thier silver beauty. Several hundred years ago a small group of these dragons discovered a series of secluded asphalt lakes and ponds that served as readymade traps for food and lost adventurers loaded down with treasure. The Alargomorth dragons, ever ones to covet wealth, settled around these tar pits, at great cost to their nobility. Surviving solely from these bitumous troughs, the dragons grew corrupt and hideous. Their silver skin darkened, their bellies swelled, their spines curled inward and even their great wings withered, grounding them. They cared little for this mutation as their minds became twisted as well. Eternally jealous and greedy, they now choose to spend all their time guarding their pitch filled pits from other scavengers.

Concept: Hydrochloric Acid Dragon
Acid dragons are large, bulky, ground-dwelling dragon that evolved from flying, wyren-like ancestors.
They body produce large amount of hydrochloric acid, which is stored in the sacks on the sides of their head. When hunting, acid dragons shoot the acid out of the fang-like tubes in front of their eyes. The strong acid causes severe burn to the prey, disablying or even killing the prey. The dragon will then "spit" more acid onto the prey and "dissolve" it into a semi liguid form, then suck it up with their tube tongues.
When threatened, acid dragons shoots out an acidic mist out of the nose, which can distract or injure the enemy.

Concept: The Curmudgeonly Sand Dragon
Living it's entire life on long stretches of beaches across the world, most people have had a run in with this odd species of dragon and haven't even realized it. Curmudgeonly Sand Dragons spend a lot of their time sleeping in the sand that their bodies are made out of; feeding by absorbing whatever flotsam that happens to drift, drop or be placed on it's body; usually shells, seaweed and dead sea critters. As beaches grew into popular hang outs for humans, however, the Curmudgeonly Sand Dragon's way of life was changed. Now they have to be careful not to absorb human trash, which upsets their stomachs tremendously, and many a time one of these dragons has awoken to find that some child has rudely made a sand castle on it's back.
This disturbance to the Sand Dragon's way of life has made them a rather grumpy race (hence the common name scientists have given them), and they are prone to return a rude gesture done on them if they can find the culprit. Their favorite forms of pay back are, of course, sand related, and anyone who has crossed one of these creatures is likely to find their beach towel or food covered with sand.
Beware of my mutant eggplant army!

Concept: Earth dragon
Typically found in caves in mountainous regions, the Earth Dragons are rather common. Standing roughly 15 feet high at the shoulders, they have a tough leathery hide, and large chunks of rock-like bone protruding from their backs.
