Dragon SlayersD&D Insider Article
by Ari Marmell

Fighting dragons is a hazardous undertaking, even for adventurers. Prepare for the inevitable with "Dragon Slayers," which features plenty of options for the brave (or foolish) heroes about to fight these fierce and deadly creatures.

The Draconomicon: Chromatic Dragons offers DMs a vast array of tricks and tools to make their dragons more challenging, more potent, more interesting, and more exciting. But what about those adventurers who must face said dragons? What about those characters who, like the heroes of myth, have devoted themselves to combating or studying these deadly and fierce creatures?

This article has your answers. Presented here are new paragon paths for each of the classes from the Player's Handbook. These paths are designed specifically for dragon-focused characters, be they dragon slayers or dragon servants (though some are more thematically suited to one or the other). Mechanically, they follow all the standard paragon path rules from the Player's Handbook.
