Here's what I've got so far on the Gold Dragon's appearance. I was curious as to what size the dragon should be. I have taken a look at the sizes for the other dragons, but I have no idea how long a "ped" is. I've used the search engine, but all I'm finding is other entries using the ped. I know its gotta be around here somewhere (probably right under my nose). Any other general comments are welcomed as well!

Appearance The Gold Dragon is sleek, with lean muscles hovering under the skin’s surface. The Dragon’s skin appears to be burnished gold; a thick, tough hide that will deflect common iron. A thinner, webbed skin folds tightly over the hollow, bird-like bones of its wings. The wings are not easily broken despite appearance, and they will not break unless they crash into a cliff face with the full force of their bodies behind them. This would be an extremely unlikely occurrence as the Dragon has far superior senses in areas of hearing, smell, and eyesight. The Gold Dragon has exceptional hearing, evidenced by their large ears, which slope into a point and are, on average, a fourth of its head length (head is about 150 cm/5 ft in length). The elongated-looking snout of the Dragon is slender and allows for a full mouth with tiny, sharp teeth and large, flaring nostrils. The eyes are a piercing yellow surrounding the thin black irises. The crest of the Gold Dragon is formed by bony fans that travel the length of the Dragon’s spine, gradually getting smaller to the tip of its tail which can be anywhere from 12 ft/360 cm to 16 ft/480 cm, doubling the size of the dragon.  Two front feet are decorated with curved, golden claws on 3 toes designed for tearing their meat. The hind legs are well muscled and bulky and the feet can have anywhere from 3 to 5 toes, one on the back of each leg. The claws on these legs are thicker and curved more, designed for balance on a rocky, perhaps unstable, surface. The underside of the feet and belly are made of a soft, sponge like membrane of skin. It is designed for comfort, and balance upon its feet.

The most important thing about interaction and communication between others is hearing what isn't being said...

Looks fine what we have so far, Daie! Just continue on;)

And Ralhag got it right. Didn't I plan putting up an entry on Santharian measurements sometime? Oh, dear, one more thing to put on my schedule.
