A Rage of Dragons, or Dracorage, was a periodic Realms-wide event that occurred when many dragons went on a collective, senseless rampage, destroying everything in their path. This periodic madness seemed to be tied to the appearance of the King-Killer Star, and could last for several tendays.[1]

Sometimes, however, the Rages were localized, less intense events, depending on the astrological position of the King-Killer Star. In the event of a localized Rage of Dragons, the more common label was a Flight of Dragons.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Frequency and Cause[edit | edit source]

Rages could take place in a number of different cycles. Some took place every few decades, while others every few centuries.[1] In Faerûn, most sages agreed that this periodic Rage was a direct result of a curse caused by the Dracorage mythal, a powerful mythal created by the elves around −25,000 DR.[2]

Duration[edit | edit source]

The exact extent of a single Rage of Dragons was theoretically tied to the exact position of the King-Killer Star when it appeared in the skies above Toril. However, in 1373 DR the lich Sammaster triggered an unanticipated Rage.[1]
