EDSG Episode 82 - Mountainshadow

* Great Dragon Backgrounds: Mountainshadow

* Far Scholar, “the meddler”

* Mountainshadow is toward the top of the list of ostensibly “good guy” dragons.

* Appears in Shadowrun as Dunkelzahn, where he is a fan of humanity in general, but not as blatantly in the Earthdawn era.

* He and his brother Icewing were clutched by All Wings.

* Primary lair is in the Dragon Mountains, rumored to have a secondary lair in the Badlands.

* Helped Prince Neden recover from his suffering under the Death Rebellion.

* According to the Outcast, caring for a small clutch of eggs.

* Adult dragons that also lair in Mountainshadow’s territory, and what that likely says about their relationship.

* Legendary artifact: The Eye of All Wings

* Collects magical lore and mystical secrets, one of the most magically learned beings in Barsaive, if not the world.

* Became Loremaster after the death of Vasdenjas.

* Could be brought into a game as a source of mystic lore.

* Large network of spies and loyal servants across the province.

* Mountainshadow’s drakes, and possible involvement with the theft of the Everliving Flower.

* The Dragons’ Network and Darktooth

* Mountainshadow’s personality: Compulsive need to study things he does not understand.

* Possible weakness in that he might take time to gather information before he acts.

* Opposition to Thera as a campaign hook to involve Mountainshadow as an ally (or antagonist).

* Possible involvement with Iopos and the Denairastas.

* Good option as high-level employer or mentor for “typical” player character groups, especially compared to other dragons.
