Cheeky dragons, they get their own DDO update and their own Dragondex and the next thing you know, they’re all over the place. Being draconic.
The latest example: Coin Serf, halfling Sorceror and Haggle-master, is just minding her own business, Teleporting about while trying to find if there are any augment vendors other than those in Gianthold, when suddenly there is a giant whooshing sound: the sky darkens around her. Without warning, a massive White Dragon* looms over her, in the Marketplace! Of all places.
* [Edit] According to forum user FranOhmsford, this is really a Silver dragon! And now that I look I think he (she?) is right! Awesome!
The dragon, who’s name turns out to be Hennespyra, shrinks down to an Elven form where she proceeds to totally ignore Coin, instead mouthing dire warnings to Cydonie and Genecia. Lesser races she says?
Coin is indignant. “I’ll show her ‘lesser races'”, she thinks as she is getting wound up into dire rant mode, “the nerve! Flying in here like that and getting everyone all stirred up”.
Sorcerous winds blow as Coin’s anger gathers, protections and whispery shields form around her all but unbidden, seemingly increasing the tiny caster’s volume and presence.
But just as suddenly as she had arrived, the dragon/elf returns back to full Dragon mode and flies away.
Coin’s mouth opens and shuts several times as the fact of the dragon’s disappearance sinks in. Sorcerous buffs and protections pop out of existence, no longer needed.
It is probably just as well. Coin in dire-rant-mode is not a pretty thing. You know how it is with redheads.
Diplomatic relations are probably best served by keeping Coin and Hennespyra apart. Well apart.
