I was reading over the ol' bestiary and - seeing as we have sooooo many dragons - I thought we should have a clan of people that have learned to tame the lesser drakes (The greater drakes would be impossible as they are intelligent) And sense there are several different types of drakes, each corresponding to a different terran, several such clans could exist. People and races aren't my forte' so I'm just tossing this one up!

In a book that I've read there was a clan of people that were descendants of one person who could ride a dragon, and every now and then someone else could. However it was a very rare and sacred thing.

I like the idea of having dragon riders, but I also think that it should only be one or two (maybe three or four) through out the entire santharian history.

Personally (if the idea does get off the ground - pardon the pun) I don't think that a dragon would let 'just anyone' ride him any way. But that's my thoughts on the matter.

Kind of a "yes but no" I realise, but dragons when you think about it are on the top of the food-chaing right? :|

A dragon rider is mentioned in the (English) chapter 7 of the Avaesthoría where a member of the "Other Circle" (a magical organisation) rides a horned dragon. However, consider this a very, very seldom sight. We shouldn't exaggerate here, or the whole sky would be full with dragonriders...

A huge, terrible common dargon army!!!!! ;)

Don't take this more serious than a first slight idea I was thinking about an order of 'dragonknights'. They actually don't ride dragons, because - as said - dragon would eat any rider before they'd even consider obeying his orders.
Their name would be more based on a myth and maybe certain traditions. One of my elfwood pics is about them and I want to draw more just to have a topic to draw about.

Art how about a race of people, descended from said dragon riders? But are none existent now. The race still exists, but the dragon riders don't.

BTW: I know several girls that are dragon ladies, does that count? :lol

You mean women which act like dragons? *grin*

Hmmm... Do you mean a tribe or a race?

Just don't call them dragonknights as well! It'll be too confusing seeing how we already have a Dark Order of Dragonknights!

Nobody here who has swallowed all these stories of the Dragon riders of Perth? It is a whole couple of books, the latest are not so good as the first ones.There you have big dragons which were bred out of a small variety and when the eggs hatch a human child has to be near this egg and maybe the dragon chooses this kid as his/her future partner. These dragons have a special task there.....but please read for yourself.. :-)



*And I don't use the spelling option here (when typing directly here to anwer), takes too much away from my precious online time! please forgive me :-)*
/me waiting for the day when I again will mix up desert and dessert, but not even a spelling help will be of help then :-(

Dragonriders are an awesome addition to the realm of Santharian. But as other's have stated, I would like to be very few and far between. It retains more legend, lore, and myth. Someone can even write up a legend of the few rulers that rode upon these awesome beasts. They would definitely be ancient kings IMHO.

Talia is right, though it's Pern, not Perth. Anne McCaffrey wrote them, people who are very advanced find the planet where a meteor passes and destroys all plant life every two hundred years. They genetically engineer firelizards, turning them into giant dragons, to burn the spores from the meteor as they fall. They eventually revert from technology to the old ways. The Dragon Riders are very prestigious and share a close bond with their dragon (read Talia's post about the bonding). They actually made a computer gave about it. You might just wanna change the name, but since it's a very general idea I don't think it would really be much of a problem.

But, controlling the dragons would be a problem.

Man: "Hey, you, Dragon, get over here and let me strap this big 'ol saddle on ya so I can ride!" Dragon: "..." Man: "Come on, we're waistin time!" Dragon: *chomp*

See what I mean?
