Crystal dragons were among the friendliest of the gem dragons and enjoyed conversing with other creatures.[1]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Crystal dragons were non-aggressive and would rarely start a fight without a good reason. A Crystal dragon's breath weapon was a cone of white light which damaged and blinded an opponent.[7]

Society[edit | edit source]

Homelands[edit | edit source]

Dragons of this type who dwelt on the Prime Material Plane preferred to live atop high mountains.[1]

In the Unapproachable East, crystal dragons could be found in the mountains of Rashemen.[8]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Crystal dragons sometimes came into conflict with White dragons and had been known to steal white dragon wyrmlings in order to raise them in a friendlier environment.[1]

Crystal dragons acted as servants of the deities Brandobaris and Vergadain.[9]
