Dragonsight was a term used to refer to a special ability that was inherent to dragons.[1]

Description[]

Dragonsight allowed a dragon to become aware of all its incarnations across the many worlds of the Prime Material plane, giving them access to a great amount of knowledge of worlds beyond their own. Over time, the dragonsight became powerful enough to allow communication between all incarnations of an individual dragon, and some powerful dragons were known to coordinate their actions with their other incarnations, something that gave them a "godly" status to members of other races and even younger dragons.[1]

Users[]

Almost every kind of dragon could develop their dragonsight once they became an ancient wyrm, and specially if they had acquired any item from another world or an artifact whose history was tied to that of other worlds. Given their connection to Sardior, gem dragons most commonly developed their dragonsight.[1]

History[]

After the Second Sundering, only a few sages were aware of the dragonsight ability, and those sages believed that its existence supported the ideas revealed in the ancient poem "Elegy for the First World".[1]
