Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara
Organisations – Cult of the Dragon
Source Material: Tyranny of Dragons (tod)
This is a post relating to the Cult of the Dragon and how they fit into Mystara.
Who are The Cult of the Dragon
The Cult of the Dragon are an organisation based on the Worship of Dragons and the desire to emulate and join their society. Members of this society become initiates in the Secret craft of the Dragonologist.
The Cult of the Dragon is organized in cells, which vary in size from just a handful of members to scores. Leaders in the cult are known as Wearers of Purple, and they outrank normal cultists, but no formal grades exist within the ranks of the Wearers of Purple. Although the cult uses regalia in its rituals and its distant camps, members who operate in public places dress and act no differently from anyone else.
Background – Faction Agent
The Cult of the Dragon desires to further the agenda of their draconic sponsor.
Cult of the Dragon in Mystara
They are spread wherever there are colonies of dragons. In my version of Mystara I have the Hidden Kingdom of Dragons doing the same job as what The Cult of the Dragon would normally be doing. So I have his agents calling themselves Dragon Agents as an optional replacement for references to The Cult of the Dragon a way of linking to this setting without having to rewrite the existing adventures I have been bringing in.
