FATE of the 13th Age
The Platinum Dragon
The Platinum Dragon is the wisest of all the dragons and holds the wisdom of the ages, the knowledge of all dragonkind, and is a shining example of Good in the world. It is the patron of many paladins, heroic organizations and individuals. The Platinum Dragon isn’t born, but is created in a ritual. When the current Platinum is about to die, the eldest of all the metallics takes the burden upon himself as the previous ascends to a higher plane of existence. The knowledge and memories of the previous Platinum Dragon are passed on to the new and it changes their scales to a soft, glowing platinum. It is known that metallics of all types have served as the Platinum Dragon.
