Monday Monsters: Juvenile Dragons

I ran a poll on Twitter and Google Plus several weeks ago asking which monsters people wanted to see for future Monday Monsters posts. The Purple Worm and Juvenile Blue Dragon tied for second place and as I already had it statted up, I posted the Purple Worm first. But to make it worth the wait, I did something extra for the dragons.

That’s right. Dragons. I did juvenile versions of all five of the chromatic dragons; blue black, white, green, and of course, red. This will have to be a short post for now as it’s very late and I need to go to bed, but I’ll be updating it with notes tomorrow.
