Oh, thank you so much! <3 I really appreciate it
Yeah, when I was first assigned these dragons, all I was given was a list of gemstones. Ruby, emerald, pyrite, malachite, opal, citrine. I asked, what's their deal? What are they like? They didn't know X3 They just wanted an alternative to chromatic/metallic dragons, and thought gemstones would be visually appealing - aside from that, I wasn't really given any direction, which left me with the question: what to do with all these dragons?!
So I made characters out of them. I researched the pagan/historical lore for each of them and built a sort of character/personality out of each one, and suddenly it became so much easier!
