Dragons as presented in the Monster Manual and other sourcebooks are both varied and similar. As of this book’s writing, more than a dozen different types of dragons exist, from the fearsome chromatic dragons to the noble metallic dragons to the mysterious gemstone dragons. Each has its own unique personality, quirks, lair habits, treasure preferences, and more—and yet, in combat, they often play in very repetitive ways. Breath Weapon, Bite, Claws, repeat—snore.
Stranger Dragons is a collection of templates that can be applied to the existing wealth of different dragon stat blocks. These templates make dragons even more varied and strange, from templates that mimic player classes to weird supernatural transformations, akin to the dracolich or the shadow dragon in the Monster Manual. The lore of these templates is written in the context of the Dragonlance setting, but the templates themselves can easily be used in any setting that features dragons.
