There seems to be some confusion about ivory dragons and white dragons. Some people seem to think that ivory and white are the same thing. In the Dragon Diceā„¢ lingo, they are two very different things. Ivory (which is the off-white color used for Amazons), signifies the lack of any color. In other words, ivory is not attuned to any of the 5 elements of Esfah (black, blue, gold, green, and red). White (which is used for Dragonlords and Dragonslayers) on the other hand, signifies all of the elemental colors at once. So as you can see, the two colors have different meanings.

As for the dragons themselves, ivory dragons will randomly be found in the new 2-player starters we will have in stock by the end of February 2007. Ivory dragons are exactly the same color plastic and ink that is currently on the Amazons. White dragons are promo dice that you can order separately. They will not be found anywhere else. White dragons have black ink, so at a glance they will look different than the purple ink on ivory dragons.

Some clarification about dragon breath with points 3 and 4 applying to white dragons:
  1. Breaths of the same color are combined, and as much damage as possible from the combination must be taken.
  2. Breaths of the same color that halve some result are cumulative, so 2 are a quarter, 3 are an eighth, etc.
  3. Each color of breath is separate SAI. The acting player decides the order the breaths are applied. As much damage as possible must be taken with each breath, but the damage is not combined from one breath to the next.
  4. The effects of multiple different breaths are cumulative.

the rules say a white dragon "will fight all other dragons at a terrain." Will 2 white dragons fight each other?

I played many games where there was more than one white dragon in play at a terrain...and they did not fight each other...they fought as a group against the army.

The key word is 'Other', in this case meaning non-white. A white dragon will fight all non-white dragons at a terrain, except for Ivory.

Dragons which match color exactly don't fight and white matches white.

PostPosted: Wed Jun 09, 2010 11:24 pm GMT    Post subject: Ivory Drake Wings Reply with quote

I have a question reguarding Ivory Drakes and Wing results.

The rules say:
Quote:
However, once an ivory dragon is at a terrain, it must either be killed, or tamed and ridden away by a Dragonlord. No other effect can move an ivory dragon.


Does this this mean that an Ivory Drake does not return to the summoning pool if it rolls a Wing result?

Thanks!

Good catch. We missed that point. So next revision of the rules will change that to:

However, once an ivory dragon is at a terrain, it must either be killed, fly away with Wings, or be tamed and ridden away by a Dragonlord. No other effect can move an ivory dragon.

I am beating a dead horse, I am really sorry for this annoyance. But Jim stated a couple years back that white dragons dont fight each other, but like other dragons they do fight in packs. As it does state they will, aside from ivorys, fight all other dragons at a terrain. This seems unreasonable so I was wondering if I could get a confirmation on this, that they do fight along side each other.

Yes, they will team up to fight an army.

So can a White Dragon be summoned via Dragon's Lair? It says "Summon any dragon with at least one color matching..." and the White Dragon has all colors, right?

D'oh!

Again, redundancy is king in rulebooks.

Can a crusader force elemental dragons to apply their melee damage or breath weapon onto an ivory dragon and ivory hybrids?

Yes. Everywhere where it talks about a Dragoncrusader controlling dragons, it says "any color dragon". While normally no dragon will attack an ivory dragon, a dragon under the control of a Dragoncrusader will attack any other dragon there. I see no reason why it would not attack an ivory dragon.

Same holds true for ivory hybrids.

Hello there

Just to confirm. Given that they lack colours Ivory Dragons cannot be summoned through a Dragon Lair. Correct?

Is this the same with Black Dragons?

Thanks

Dragons' Lair can never affect ivory dragons. It can affect black dragons if a Deadlands spell is cast on the terrain.
