cadaver draconis; n. Being a nutritious if slightly stale miscellany of entirely unofficial and discarded addenda for the Dragon Warriors RPG.
It seems like aeons have passed since Magnum Opus Press first breathed life into the revised version of the Dragon Warriors RPG.
Later in the Magnum Opus print run, a concept took form, of a mystical tome that would be known as the Players Book or Legends, which would enhance and revise significant aspects of the Dragon Warriors RPG.
This is not that book.
However, this book is mostly comprised of an almost fully-written core component from early drafts of the Players Book. Over time, this material was replaced with even more cool stuff, and it eventually found it's way to the proverbial cutting room floor at Dragon Warriors HQ.
Thus, the Dragon Warriors Players Guide - as it was named when printed by Serpent King Games - was eventually published without the considerably lengthy Paths mechanic and evocative flavour text. In addition, a small selection of later rules and background material were also dropped.
All of this cut material has not been lost or forgotten, basically because in our humble opinion it is pretty darn good. Good enough, in fact, to justify publication.
This book is dedicated to all those Dragon Warriors fans who waited ever-so-patiently for the long overdue printing of the Dragon Warriors Players Guide - this book is for you.
