Quick question for all my fellow world builders…
What do you guys think of this idea—a 600 foot dragon?
Does this sound too large? And if so, what size would you recommend (above 300 feet at least)?

My first impulse is to say that a 600 foot dragon is too large. That is as tall as the Seattle Space Needle.
However, you could make it work. It would be hard to have interactions with the dragon.
So before I nix the idea I have a few questions.
- Is this for a story you are working on or are you messing around with some ideas?
- If it is for a story, is the dragon sentient (can it speak at least in it’s own language, is it more than just a regular animal)?
- Is the dragon a mindless evil trying to destroy something?
- Is the dragon supposed to bond with anything (dragon or human) or will it be alone?

@warrioroftherealm That’s like almost twice the size of Godzilla, for perspective. Too large? I don’t know, you’d have to be careful with large buildings and easily stepped on humans, or else you could have a mess on your hands. But if he’s, say, an almost “unreal” creature (if that makes sense), and/or his size is an important part of the narrative, it could work. He would have to have a huge wingspan to fly, and would probably need to eat a lot.

@warrioroftherealm 600 feet would be HUUUUUUGGEEE. Even 150 feet seems like a large-sized dragon to me. I mean, you can have a 600ft dragon, but that’s so powerful (and hard to feed) I don’t know how it could be fed or how anyone could possibly defeat it.

@warrioroftherealm Well to put it into perspective, argentinosaurus, which was the largest dinosaur, was about 70 ft tall and 115 ft in length. here’s how it compares to a human:
And yes I realize dragons and dinosaurs are not the same.
