Mind-Dweller Pseudodragon[edit]

A Race of Pseudodragons with increased Telepathic ability.


As normal Pseudodragons, except evasive when asked about their telepathic abilties.

Most Mind-Dweller Pseudodragons spend their days lazily floating around through forests, listening to the thoughts of adventurers who pass through. A sufficiently good creature to come through may convince the Mind-Dweller to come along as a cohort.

Physical Description[edit]

A Mind-Dweller pseudodragon has a body about 1 foot long, with a 2-foot tail. It stands only a 6-11 inches tall. It weighs about 7 pounds. It usually flies around, but is known to slink along the ground when trying to be stealthy.


A Mind-Dweller Pseudodragon will get along fine with any creatures of the good alignment.


Alignment is usually Chaotic Good.


A temperate forest is ideal, but Mind-Dwellers can also survive comfortably in caves.


Most Mind-Dwellers don't practice religions, but none are outlawed among them.


Mind-Dweller Pseudodragons do not speak, but they may comunicate telepathically with any creature that has a language. It may also vocalize animal noises, such as discomfort or contentment.


Names are acquired by the colour and texture of scales at birth, though odd choices have been made before.
