Both Chromatic and Metallic Dragon appear in Arcadia. Humanity considers the Chromatic Dragons "evil" and the Metallic Dragons "good", due to the way the Dragons treat humanity.
The following list is of encountered or mentioned Dragons from the various campaigns, but this isn't an exhaustive list, and there may be more dragons yet to be discovered.
Dragons originate from the 1st Prime Material Plane. A small word built to house the first form of life by the Gods. The dragons were created to be perfect beings that would worship and revere the gods for the gifts they were given. Unfortunately for the gods, the Dragons were too great. The Dragons were wise enough to not need the guidance of the gods, strong enough to fend for themselves (even against natural disasters), stubborn enough to resent gods who tried to manipulate them, long lived enough to be patient, and intelligent enough to be totally self sufficient. The gods were not needed, and felt abandoned by their own creations. The gods grew frustrated with the Dragons. This was not the life creating experience the gods were hoping for, so they abandoned the world and moved on. The Dragons barely noticed and continued quite happily.It is unknown what the Dragons know of the 2nd Prime Material Plane, but it is a world where Dragons cannot fly.
The first conflict between the people of The World and Dragons occurred during The First Dragon War. The First Dragon War led to the fall of much of the Elven Kingdoms of Solum. The Elves suffered the majority of the casualties in a conflict in which they were eclipsed by the might of Dragons. The elves forged the Dragonbane Weapons during this conflict as a way to drive the Dragons away.
