Radnon pisze:Patrząc na powieści (szczególnie "Obietnicę Króla - Czarnoksiężnika") rzeczywiście powinien już być epikiem. Sam zresztą jakiś czas temu pisałem o tym na forum. Natomiast patrząc na oficjalne rozpiski, czy to z FRCS czy sporo nowszą z figurkowego Underdarku, wciąż jest on wieloklasowcem o łącznym poziomie 18 i dlatego nie może się znaleźć na tej liście.
Tak sama sytuacja jest zresztą z Drizztem, który od czasu FRCS na pewno kilka poziomów złapał (choćby w "Klingach Łowcy").

The egg hatches in 348, the Year of the Dagger. The dragon is red, but has the physique of a blue dragon. Saeval named the dragon Garnetallisar.
In 358, the Year of the Battle Talons, Garnet became known to the folks in Myth Drannor. There was a big commotion, but since Saeval's enchantments had made Garnet Lawful Good, Coronal Eltargrim tweaks the mythal to allow Garnet to live in the city.
In 712, the Year of the Lost Lance, Myth Drannor was under attack by the Army of Darkness. On Hammer 12, Garnet rashly attaked the bad guys. He was aided by an ally and former mentor, a silver dragon named Sylvallitham. They tore thru the ground troops, and were just about to attack the nycaloth leaders of the army, when they were struck by beams of light. Both dragons disappeared without a trace.
Sylvallitham's body was found over two hundred years later, apparently killed by another dragon. Garnet's fate is unknown.
Oh, and one more bit about Garnet: the book The Fall of Myth Drannor mentions that Garnet breathed "arcing bolts of electrical fire".Steven Schend pisze:Garnet was a wholly unique creature unlike any to exist before or since. He was a chimera of dracoforms, and the only reason he was red in color and blue in shape was this: Saeval Ammath had many secrets never revealed to elves outside of his clan, and often only to a few select members of his immediate family. Saeval's grandfather--an exiled elf who was born outside of Cormtanthor and never trod its paths--was a half-dragon, born of a silver dragon mother. He was a great tracker and wizard of Ardeep (Sure hope I'm getting my dates/names right, but I'm winging it here from half-remembered notes that don't survive; George and Eric can correct me before this thread closes. ) and patriarch of a loyal and good branch of the Ammath clan in those western woods.
Saeval came to Myth Drannor to learn more magics but also to cure a great sorrow of his own--the silver dragon (long publicly a family friend but in truth his own great-grandmother) had died protecting him and others from battle-maddened Hlondathan mages scavenging for any magics they could find (and they also took their trade caravan to be smuggling weapons and magic to the Cormanthan elves, their enemies in the Crown and Scepter Wars). Saeval preserved the dragon's soul in a brand-new kiira, and spent the next 50 years or so trying to find a way to restore her to life. He studied under many of the great wizards of Myth Drannor and COrmanthor of all races and he wandered far and wide (rumor has it he venture far onto the Great Glacier and as far south as Chondath).
When he found a blue dragon's egg in his wanderings, he magically kept it from hatching or developing, and he spent a decade of casting to alter its form into something powerful enough to house the silver dragon's soul. While he managed to match the power of the red dragons inside the form of the blue dragon and make other changes to allow for the magical transfer, he either could not or did not change the dragon's gender within its shell.
When the egg finally hatched in 348, Garnet was unique. Physically, he had to relearn everything to adapt to this new form, but mentally, (s)he had all the knowledge of her previous life. Thus, even at hatchling stage, he had access to the special abilities of a very old silver dragon (except polymorph self, as the magics used to create his new form locked him into one shape; and damage reduction, which is a function of the physical body, not the mind).
Thus, even while Garnet is now physically a wyrm, (s)he's gone into epic levels for certain special abilities. Assuming, of course, that he still exists...
Hope this explains why Garnet isn't either evil or the start of a whole new race of dragons. While one could postulate that he could mate with either reds or blues and have offspring of that hue/form, it's far more sensible (given the origin and attendant problems) to state that Garnet, while healthy in all ways, was born sterile.
