- try to take visual cues from the look of the egg (colors, decoration, etc.) And incorporate those into the design of your dragon.
- keep it a dragon. There are a lot of different kinds of dragons but it should be reasonably recognizable as a dragon.
- remember to make it fancy! The more the better.

Living in the mesas of Areth Myn is the glorious Emperor Wyrm. A rare sight, the seemingly eyeless dragons have been noted as carrying with them an aura of omniscience and majesty. A Great Emperor Wyrm lays one egg every three hundred years. The eggs, covered in ornate patterning of silver, platinum and gemstones, are rumored to give immortality to one who eats it. This legend is yet unconfirmed, the closest anyone getting to this prize being a rather unscrupulous duke who, upon reaching the nest, was promptly tossed casually off by the nesting Wyrm.
Small beautifully feathered and scaled Dragons that are often collected and raced by those who can afford the exuberant prices set for the rare and beautiful eggs that they hatch from.

The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

Often sought after by adventurers, this dragon is a rarity who hears requests at night should you stumble upon him. After the request is asked of the dragon, upon daybreak the adventurer finds out the dragon’s decision whether it was to grant his or her request. . . or if the dragon doesnt have to search for a meal that day. They always hope its not the latter.
Concept: Faberge Dragon 'Wow, Dad, look! It's a real dragon!'. 'No, son, it's just a wyvern. A very rare one and resembles a dragon but it's not the same. And we are here to steal her eggs because some crazy jeweller pays a fortune for it. Rumour has it that he later puts some toys in it, sells it to the rich men and claims that all of it is work of his hands'. 'Wyvern, shmivern, it's still a dragon to me!'.
Concept: Domestic Wyrm The once great sentient race of dragons were long ago driven to the brink of extinction by expanding human civilization. What remains of the super-predator race are the Domestic Wyrms. Only the most attractively colored and docile dragons were bred, reducing them to stupid beasts that serve as exotic pets for the super-wealthy.

Also known as the 'serpent of fortune,' it is said that those who gaze upon Cualtzicoatl (beautiful serpent), with a pure heart are eternally blessed with good fortune. Those with ill intentions are cursed to live a wretched life.
Cualtzicoatl dedicates its existence to guarding it's infant. The infant will one day replace its predecessor as a new diety.
The Flowering Gripswitch makes its home high in the treetops, using its eighteen pairs of self-suctioning feet to keep a tight grip on the swaying branches. The Gripswitch’s back is lined with specialized scales that mimic the nectar filled pods of the native flora, which it uses to attract the insects on which it feeds. These highly adaptive scales serve another purpose during breeding season, when they, with the help of the pollinating insects they attract, spread the male Gripswitch’s genetic material to the highly camouflaged eggs laid strategically throughout the forest by the females.
Concept: Faberge Dragon This small dragon was practically hunted to extinction for its valuable scales and jewels on its back. They are rumored to be fast and agile, and feed on small rodents and insects.

Reason: Forgot to include a border on my piece.
so much energy coming out of such a small thing, it's egg is semi transpparent and the moving flow of colors and texture mesmerized each of the egg's previouse owners , but as it hatches, the dragon of storms unleashed hes wrath upon the landscape ,terraforming it from the vast fertile, lush and green lands to a dark desert overcomed by storms.
