About

Do you want to be a dragon? Of course you do. Dragonflight brings everything you need to make powerful dragon characters and NPCs that do justice to their legendary status. Get the tools to run a fantastic campaign for dragon characters or craft specialized draconic foes to put your players to the test, all using the 5th Edition rules you know and love. Welcome to Dragonflight. Get ready to soar.

Dragonflight is a complete rulebook, divided into two sections: one for players and one for DMs. The player section includes the Dragon Builder – all the rules for creating a dragon character with full progression from level 1 to 20 for three dragon classes and enough variety that no two dragons will be alike. This includes new tools for roleplaying as a dragon, adventuring, downtime, and customization options (such as draconic feats). What kind of dragon will you play? A mighty warrior, with talons that cleave through steel? One that overflows with arcane power, casting spells beyond the imagining of mortals? An inspiring leader (or brutal tyrant) who marshals lesser beings into an army while staying two steps ahead of every rival? All this and more is possible with Dragonflight

Dragons are much stronger than puny humanoids, and the DM section provides what you need to forge dragons like never before. You’ll get guidance on everything from encounter building, adventure planning, and handling hoards to treasure, NPCs, and villains. The book also discusses world-building in the section Building a Draconian World, chock-full of advice and inspiration for creating a setting where dragons are the stars of the show. Finally, the DM section closes with a portfolio of Dragon NPCs, ready to drop into a game. Both these NPCs and any dragons you build using the dragon builder can also serve as powerful creatures in a standard 5th Edition game, far surpassing the traditional dragons found in most books.

In short, if you’ve ever asked or been asked, “Can I play as a dragon?” the answer is now yes.

Curious to see how Dragonflight is played? We got you covered. We partnered with Encounter Roleplay to bring you livestreamed Dragonflight events, whose schedule can be found below. If you are curious or skeptical about the playability of this project, we cannot recommend these streams enough. 

Encounter Roleplay Event Schedule

1st Session (October 15th): A dragon adventure, DM’d by streaming DM guru Grant Ellis

2nd Session (October 19th): The dragon adventure continues! As DM’d by streaming DM guru, Grant Ellis.

You can find these streams over at Encounter Roleplay’s Twitch Channel, along with a ton of other awesome content they get up to every week. Check them out!

Additionally, 2CGamign will be sharing Dragonflight Alpha and Beta designs we have in development over the course of the project. If you are curious about what exciting features will be in the final book that aren’t shown here, you should check these out! 

Beta Build Character Builder (Stream Date will be announced via KS Update). Ready to see what a 20th level dragon looks like? Ryan Servis will be putting together dragons of incredible power from all three subclasses: Arcanist, Destroyer, and Imperator! Ask your questions and give feedback via Kickstarter Live. 

DM Design Stream (Stream Date will be announced via KS Update). Are you in a DM wondering how to run a game with dragon characters? Our head writer Steven Gordon will be going over the awesome DM features that will help you run unique dragon themed games for your players and create awesome dragon NPCs. You can find these streams here on Kickstarter Live!

At the core of the Dragonflight experience is the Dragon Builder. This progression system allows you to create dragons of all shapes, sizes, skills, and species. From a newly hatched wyrmling to an ancient wyrm, your dreams of creating the perfect dragon can be brought to life. Compatible with most species found in 5th Edition, and many found from 3rd party publishers, the Dragon Builder is an essential and flexible tool for creating a high-quality creature/character that does justice to what a dragon should be. The builder is currently available here as a proof of concept and will be further expanded and refined over the course of the project's development. We are excited to see the dragon your dream up, so show us what you got!

Additionally, this system will be publicly tested and refined for a finely tuned and balanced result. 2CGaming has long relied on its community as an essential part of its design process, and Dragonflight is no different. Give us your feedback directly or share your thoughts with the ever expanding 2CGaming Discord community. They don't bite (much). You can always find the 2CGaming team there happy to answer your questions and talk shop!

Whether you are looking for a PDF, physical copy, gameplay accessories, or a masterwork set of handcrafted wooden pieces that will make jaws drop, you’ll find it here!

At this level, you're supporting us because you like to see passionate creators pursue their dreams. You'll receive all the updates as we work on the book, and can enjoy seeing it come together behind the scenes! This tier also gives you access to Backerkit, where you can update your pledge after the Kickstarter concludes, pick up some add-ons, and enjoy the 10% discount on other 2CGaming products.

For the tech-savvy dragon, at this tier you receive a fully searchable PDF of Dragonflight to add to your digital hoard.

If you are to embark of your first dragon adventure, look no farther! At this tier, you receive both a PDF and softcover copy of Dragonflight, so you can hold the power of dragons in your hands!

Dragonify your game table. For players and DMs alike, this tier includes physical accessories to improve your experience playing and running dragons! In addition to the PDF and physical copy of Dragonflight, you can choose via Backerkit which set of physical rewards (Player or DM) you will receive, each of which has unique items! Player Kit includes treasure themed “hoard dice”, unique territory chits to mark your domain, the dragonfate custom metal coin, and a dragon themed dice bag to hold it all. DM Kit includes dragon themed “breath weapon” dice for epic damage rolls, dragon points of interest chits for your campaign map, the dragonfate custom metal coin, and a dragon themed dice bag to hold it all! The details of the accessories are found below.

For those wishing to make their mark on Dragonflight, this tier grants you the benefits of all previous tiers, as well as the opportunity to write a quote by a dragon of your design and have it included in the book in an appropriate section!

For dragons of resplendent power, this tier offers your choice of player or DM physical accessories, and you get to design a dragon using the Dragon Builder to be included in the NPC gallery in the book, along with an illustration from one of our expert artists. Immortalize your dragon in Dragonflight for all to see.

Among dragons there are few who settle for nothing and must game with the finest of materials. In addition to all the benefits of the Great Wyrm Tier, your Dragon Chest gets inlaid with an ornate dragon-themed design that ensures your supreme status. This chest is forged from the highest quality materials you can find anywhere, with Thinking Monk offering some of their best work for this Kickstarter exclusive reward. Additionally, you get your choice of masterwork DM or player assets (including wooden dice case, premium dice, and engraved wooden tokens for territory/points of interest), all of which can be stored within your new chest!

Many of the tiers have special accessories to augment your dragonflight experience at the game table. These include separate sets for both players and DMs tailored for Dragonflight gameplay, so you'll use them often! 

The Players set includes: 

  • 3 sets of treasure themed "Hoard" dice for general use and rolling on special dragon loot tables. All dragons love treasure, and Dragonflight introduces many treasure-based gameplay moments for dragon characters that make good use of these dice! 
  • 1 dragon dice bag featuring Dragonflight art. Tell your game table what you are all about. 
  • 1 metal "dragonfate" coin, emblazoned with the Dragonflight emblem. 
  • 1 set of territory makers to designate your favorite spots within your dragon's domain. As your dragon character grows, they will need some fun places to spend downtime hunting prey, preening, and menacing villages. Build your domain using these markers for an optimal dragon gaming experience.

The DMs set includes: 

  • 1 set of "Breath Weapon dice", 16d10 with Dragonflight logo for the maximum result so you can incinerate PCs in style. Watch players shudder in fear when you pull these menacing dice from your bag. 
  • 1 dragon dice bag featuring Dragonflight art. Place it on the table and watch your players tremble about whats in store.  
  • 1 metal "dragonfate" coin, emblazoned with the Dragonflight emblem. 
  • 1 set of territory makers to designate your favorite spots within your dragon's domain. As your dragon character grows, they will need some fun places to spend downtime hunting prey, preening, and menacing villages. Build your domain using these markers for an optimal dragon gaming experience.

We want the experience of playing a dragon to feel awesome both in-game and around the table. To that end, we partnered with Thinking Monk, a maker of heirloom quality accessories, to create one-of-a-kind dragon-themed assets available only through this campaign. The pictures speak for themselves.

At the campaign’s conclusion, you’ll be able to upgrade your Player or DM assets to the masterwork Dragonflight Thinking Monk assets.  Check Out What They Are Offering:

Each asset can be upgraded (including dice, territory markers, and point of interest hexes), while others can be added (including the engraved dice boxes seen here, but NOT the Dragon Chest seen below)

Our highest campaign tiers offer a limited supply of these items as well, which will be the first wave of assets produced and shipped out! Those same items (apart from the engraved Dragon Chest, available only through this Kickstarter) will be available through BackerKit should you want to customize your pledge.

We could write enough about dragons to fill a dozen books, and we’ve picked the best of our ideas to be stretch goals for this project. Should it achieve a truly extraordinary level of funding, 2CGaming is ready to put the focus and resources needed to expand Dragonflight into the definitive manual of dragons. Here are some of the planned stretch goals we'd like to see for this project!

2Cgaming is a U.S. based company, meaning we can provide expedient and relatively cheap shipping to anywhere in the United States. Unfortunately, we cannot produce this Kickstarter’s accessories overseas, which means our usually cheaper international shipping is back to the standard rates. Shipping costs will be added to your pledge after the Kickstarter. 

United States – 

  • Book: $5
  • Book + Assets: $15

Canada –

  • Book: $15
  • Book + Assets: $35

International - 

  • Rates will vary depending on location.
  • General Estimate for Book: $30
  • General Estimate for Book + Assets: $60 

A small portion of the 2CGaming team will be producing this project, with Ryan Servis (Epic Legacy Core Rulebook, and the Total Party Kill Bestiary) the majority of the writing. We will also be using members of 2CGaming’s core team of artists (including Ambrose Hoilman, and Matteo Marjoram) to make the most badass dragon art found anywhere. Our editor in chief is the esteemed Misty Bourne, who brings unparalleled polish and quality to our books.

2CGaming has run professional and personal games and produced tabletop gaming supplements for 5th Edition and Pathfinder since 2014. We have a long list of completed and in-progress projects, many of which are detailed below and available at www.2cgaming.com

Risks and challenges

2CGaming has now successfully delivered on several Kickstarters: the Total Party Kill Handbook, Domes of Ishaq-Zahur, City of Sands, Tyrants and Hellions, Lion's Vault, and the Epic Legacy Core Rulebook. We are currently in development on two previously-funded Kickstarters: The Total Party Kill Bestiary and the Total Party Kill Handbook Vol. 2. We have refined a highly efficient production system that prevents any bottlenecking that has proven to be one of our biggest challenges.

Steve and Ryan have many hours each week to dedicate to this project while they performing other 2CGaming activities, allowing us to produce this project

As with all Kickstarters, the possibility of unforeseen complications exists. 2CGaming has a proven record of keeping lines of communication open and active to ensure our backers are made aware of any such incidents.

As always, questions/comments/concerns are appreciated. You can reach out to us with any specific concerns you may have about this project via our Website or chat directly with us via Discord. Links are provided below.
