They are the least initially impressive species among the true dragons; their length is usually around 10 meters, with long, thin bodies, and smaller wings that fold tightly to their bodies. Their craggy, armoured heads are perched on shorter necks, and their four legs are powerful and end in sharp, shovel-like claws. The brown dragon's scales are usually a warm brown hue with harder, greyish scales traveling along its spine. Contrary to other forms of true dragon, brown dragons prefer to burrow beneath the ground under mountains instead of traveling by flight. When stubborn hard-headed dwarves meet equally stubborn brown dragons, conflict is often unavoidable.
