Description: AS BEFITS THE MIGHTY (and perhaps arrogant) race of gold dragons, their wyrmlings are born with a wide suite of abilities, including fully functional wings and breath weapons. Gold wyrmlings often challenge one another in games. They take such activities seriously, competing for small territories and prizes (such as prime prey). These efforts help train them for adulthood so that they will be capable—and worthy— of ruling true domains. A gold wyrmling is torn between a burning desire to prove itself to its parents and an innate belief that it is already superior—or destined to be so—to all other creatures it encounters.
A gold wyrmling’s scales are dull, almost sandhued, and grow brighter as the dragon ages.
