Summary and dragon images from the MMORPG, Horizons: Empire of Istaria.
The Dragons of Istaria are an enigmatic, ancient race whose existence predates the earliest of written records.
They are the largest of the races. Once they reach a certain age, they achieve the gift of flight. Their enormous wings provide balance and some control in the air, but the dragon’s ability to fly seems to be based more on their harnessing of external, mystical energies.
Dragons shun the usage of conventional tools and items. They prefer utilizing their innate magical powers for the crafting of devices which suit their needs and are able to alter the environment that surrounds them.
Dragons are very possessive creatures; what a dragon owns is of utmost importance to them. Dragons stash hordes of gold, resources, and items in secret caches only known to them.
Launched in 2007, the mission of the company (Virtrium) is to “provide a gaming environment where people can come together to tell their own stories, and make the world their own.”
