Haven't started on that either, but don't worry. Writing the dialogue will take me like 15 mins tops when I get around to it, so it's definitely not going to be the bottleneck. Got one other thing to take care of right now, but I remember about this.
and what do you think about making different Dragon Eggs as well?
Sure, why not? Thinking now they could look the same (as the Dragon Eggs that we have now), but have different names, say Green Dragon Egg etc. If we wanted, we could even put mild colored tints on them to visually hint what type of dragon they contain. And then we could make Tor's quest repeatable after the first completion (both the light and dark path) as a means to get more Dragon NPCs.
I actually really like this idea. Getting dragons is supposed to be prohibitive, and just talking to Garotte Gorge dragons and relying on probabilities would be too easy of a way to get dragon hirelings. Having to pick up eggs from the Land of the Giants dragon cave, which could have for example 35%/35%/15%/15% chances of coming in particular colors would definitely add a fun factor to revisiting those caves.
Let's say that it feels like tripping on mushrooms, only it's on power. At least that's how I see it.
I like the all-balanced settings myself, but I'm not afraid to go into extremes just for challenge ... and honestly I only hope that some racial classes (Minotaurs?) get some buffs, since I always felt like they're the weakest in vanilla game. Others, well, I honestly have no comment about. ^^;
I agree with that. Not being able to wear headwear and boots is a definite disadvantage for minos, that's why even in my first draft I thought they should receive something more as compensation. It's only fair, I think. I think giving them +1 to Armsmaster and Perception would even things out nicely. Not sure about bodybuilding, then again I think they could afford +1, since they look
like they should be at least sturdier than humans, but never actually were as a class in MM8. Axe bonuses go without saying. What do you think?

Very tasteful, beautiful! Is it just me though, or does it still resemble the base green dragon more than your black dragon does the red one? With that one I honestly couldn't tell that it was based off another one, but here it's a bit more apparent. Perhaps even more horns or spines of some sort could remedy this?
