Hi guys and gals,

Some of you may prefer to draw Dragon tokens less frequently than on every character's turn. Therefore I have come up with a solution to the problem, partly based on the rule for flipping the Time Card in the Blood Moon Expansion.

Amendments to page 6 of the rulebook as follows:

Drawing Dragon Tokens

When a character draws one or more Enemies during his turn, before he encounters any cards, he must draw one dragon token at random from the pool and resolve its effect. After the effect of the dragon token is resolved, the player continues his turn as normal.

Dragon Slumber

The character who drew the token places a sleep token on one Dragon of his choice in any Region. If there are no Dragons on the board, he may place the token on any Enemy of his choice. If there are no Enemies on the board, the Dragon Slumber has no effect. The character cannot place a sleep token on any Enemy that he just drew that turn . After the Dragon Slumber is resolved, it is discarded.


Amendments to page 7 of the rulebook as follows:

Dragon Scales

The effects of dragon scales vary depending on whether they are placed on the game board or in a character's play area.

When a dragon scale is first drawn, it is placed on the character's space.


Amendments to page 8 of the rulebook as follows:

Crowning the Dragon King

When a character draws a dragon scale, it is placed on the character's space. The colour of the dragon scale indicates which Draconic Lord is immediately crowned as the new Dragon King and the Crown token is placed on his card as a reminder of his status.

If the space already has a dragon scale, it is placed in the next space counterclockwise that does not already have a dragon scale. If every space in the Region already has a dragon scale, the dragon scale is discarded and the character must suffer the Dragon Rage of the Dragon King instead (see “Dragon Rage” on page 15).

In this manner, the Dragon King changes throughout the game and spawns Varthrax, Cadorus, and Grilipus dragon scales on board spaces.

Important: Characters in the Inner Region do not draw a Dragon scale.


Amendments to page 9 of the rulebook as follows:

Example of Crowning the Dragon King

The Conjurer draws a Varthrax dragon scale after revealing an Enemy during her turn. She then places the dragon scale on her space.

This results in Varthrax being crowned the new Dragon King! The Crown token is placed on Varthrax, then the Conjurer continues her turn.

That's it folks, enjoy!

That's a very good idea Elliot.


This is almost a similar idea as the Domain of dragon ending, but it keeps the drawing token rule in the game.

I like this idea.
