Ok, so there's 3 things you'll need for this fun little experiment.
A pencil you can erase with,
And a 20 sided dice.
First two are easy. The last one gets most. The game ''Magic the Gathering'' comes with one in a box set, and I've bought spares, been given extras and traded for my little collection. If you don't have one, you can download a free dice counter of some sort and use that. If you can't do that, find 5 six sided dice and add up the total. If it's more than twenty, roll again. If you decide you don't like you're option, do a best of three. For options that require a single number, roll only once more and keep the second roll! There's no point if you keep rolling till you get what you want.
On to the game!
(1.) Male or Female?
Roll dice, if Even, the dragon is a girl! If Odd, you've got a boy!
[ ] F
[ ] M
(2.) Graceful or Chunky?
Roll dice, if you get 1-10, you've got a long and slender dragon with a long neck and tail and legs like a greyhound. If you get 11-20, your dragon will be on the shorter, fatter side, with a shorter neck and tail and stubbier legs.
[ ] Graceful
[ ] Chunky
(3.) Fur or Scales?
Role dice, if you got 1-5, or 11-15, your dragon has scales for armor. If you got 6-10, or 16-20, your dragon has fluffy fur.
[ ] Fur
[ ] Scales
(4.) Frills or not?
If you got Fur in step (3.) Skip this step unless you like the idea of a frill on your dragon.
Roll dice, if you get 1-10, you've got a frill along your dragon's spine. If you get 11-20, your dragon lacks the decoration.
[ ] Yes
[ ] No
(5.) Manes away?
If you got Scales in step (3.) skip thks step.
Roll dice, if you get Even, the dragon will have extra fur along their spine and throat. If you get odd, your dragon lacks the decoration.
[ ] Yes
[ ] No
Things get a bit more complicated from here, as we go into details and extra fetures.
(6.) Beak or muzzle?
Roll dice, if you got an Even number between 1-10 or an Odd number between 11-20, your dragon has a Beak for a nose. If you got an Odd number between 1-10 or an Even number between 11-20, your dragon has a proper muzzle.
[ ] Beak
[ ] Muzzle
(7.) Horns or no?
Roll dice. If you get an Odd number your dragon has horns, if you get Even, no horns adorn their head.
[ ] Yes
[ ] No
(8.) Horn type?
If you got No in step (7.) Skip this step.
Roll dice, if you got 1 or 11, your dragon has ordinary horns, a simple shape that curves gently away from the dragon's head. Domestic goat horns.
If 2 or 12, they have segmented horns. (Think Spiro)
If 3 or 13, they've antlers like those of a white tailed deer or a Lung dragon.
If 4 or 14, their horns resemble frilled fins.
If 5 or 15, they are the curled horns of a mountain Ram.
If 6 or 16, the horns are in the tight spiral of a sea snail's shell.
If 7 or 17, they are those of an ox, or cow. Going outward from the head rather than backward.
If 8 or 18, their horns are rounded nubs instead of true horns.
If 9 or 19, they will have spiked horns, multiple simple horns rather than just two.
If 10 or 20, Suprise! You get to pick from 1-9 or 11-19! You're really lucky. Or you get an extra roll if you can't decide.
Roll dice, if you got 1-5, the tail is plain, no extras.
If 6-10, the tail tip is fanned, like that of Toothless from ''How to Train Your Dragon''.
If 11-15, the tail tip is fluffy lie a lion's, or a donkey's.
If 15-20, the tip of the tail is spiked like a scorpion's.
(10.) Toes or talons?
Roll dice, if you got an Even number from 1-10, your dragon has 3 toed paws, like the Chinese lung.
If you got an Odd number 1-10, your dragon has 4 toes on it's feet, like a dog.
If you got an Even number 11-20, the dragon will have talons like a bird of prey. Three fore facing claws, and one rear facing.
If you got an Odd number 11-20, your dragon has five toes on it's front feet, and four on it's back feet, like a cat with dew-claws.
(11.) Large or small?
Roll dice, if 1-10, your dragon ia small as a house cat, an interesting pet, if 11-20, your dragon is large enough to ride through the skies.
So what did you get? I've gotten several fun designs and some flops. For an artist with a bit of block and want to draw a dragon, this works fine. I purposely left details like wing type, intelligence, ear types, and colors out for some flexibility for those playing the little game.
Have fun with it guys!~
