The Mother of all Dragons

"We're gonna need a bigger boat." - Jaws

Today,while at my friendly local gaming shop, I decided to purchase a box of the Pathfinder miniatures.  I had already bought a few singles (the goblins are by far my favorite), and I decided that I wanted to invest in a box.  And so I did.

However, that doesn't amount to the awesome promo figure my shop was selling: a huge black dragon.  Now, the price was a little crazy, so I had to stop and think about it.  And the more I thought, the more that little voice said "Karl.  You wrote about how dragons need to be a big deal.  You're slowly creating a nice heroic level threat for your players.  How about something to build up to next?"

And I said "I want this."

I came home and went online, looking at ebay for how much the dragon was going for.  To my great joy, I was able to buy mine at a cheaper price than what it was going for on ebay.  That felt like a win to me.

To make matters even better, I pulled 4 more goblins, a giant spider, a werewolf (for Ragnarok when he hits level 10), and a lich.  The lich will definitely make a good villain at a later point, just not sure when.  For now, the main focus is the dragon Mekkalath.  The players will definitely have their hands full.

That is one angry dragon.
