The Dragon Emperor

I really hope that the Dragon Emperor of Cathay is an actual dragon instead of a human and Cathay is ruled by an Asian dragon nobility class as the head of their Empire I think that would be really cool.

    I've heard speculation that the Dragon Emperor could assume a human form (which may or may not be in the game), but personally I'd want him in dragon form all the time.

    Also I'm hoping he's an eastern style serpentine dragon.

    IMO my preferred way to do it would be that the Dragon Emperor is a human who can assume Dragon Form(or a Dragon who can assume human form?!?!?!?) and in battles it functions a bit like Malus where you start off with a regular old human lord and then can transform into a glorious Celestial Dragon(presumably minus the **** degredation).

    I would want his human form only in narrative and diplomacy screen, but always as dragon otherwise.

    I want Dragon Emperor to look human on campaign and when is away of enemies then shift to serpentine dragon when moves and enters in melee range in battles.

    Ye I really hope so, too. It would be perfect if he is like Kaido from one piece, with ability to change between human and dragon form.

    I hope the Dragon emperor will have a human form and also an activatable dragon form (Sage mode, naruto ftw).

    When I say dragon form, I dont expect him to become a serpentine dragon per se but the dragon emperor should still maintain his humanoid form but with some enhanced features like a eyes of a dragon, scaled skin with armor and horns.

    If you watch anime. Think of it like Sasuke's cursed seal or Naruto's sage mode.

    I like the dragon that shapeshifts into human form option personally. There's something cool about seeing their character and characteristics as dragons represented as human characteristics. You can be like "oh that dragon is an ****, and he looks like an **** too as a person." Or "that dragon is really graceful, and he's the same as a person." You get the idea haha. Plus it adds a magical element to them which many dragons otherwise don't have since they have the power to shapeshift. Lastly as a human they're cool af because their lifespan is way longer than a regular person. Man I'm a nerd. Anyway

    But I'd be alright with a straight up dragon too, as long as he's given some personality and intelligence. I think a normal human calling himself the dragon emperor would probably be the least fun implementation. The whole point of the adaptation of real life elements into fantasy is to make impossible things possible in the game.

    Am I the only one who doesn't want the Dragon Emperor to be an actual dragon? It seems contrary to everything we know about dragons in Warhammer Fantasy as well as what little existing lore there is on Cathay, which indicates that there are dynasties of Dragon Emperors and royal family members such as princes as well as consorts like concubines. I want him to be special no doubt, perhaps more than human as the 'dragon-blooded' Shugengen wizards are heavily implied to be, but just a LL version of a SEM in Cathay's roster seems really dull, give me a character whose identity is more than "yo, I'm a literal dragon".
    Tomes read: The Great Betrayal, Master of Dragons, Curse of the Phoenix Crown, Trollslayer, Skavenslayer, Daemonslayer, Dragonslayer, Beastslayer, Vampireslayer, Malekith, The Bloody Handed, Shadow King
    Bring back proper naval battles CA!!!
    Me when I see a LL character implemented as a LH.

    Well, yeah, I hope it's not like that guy either. lol @talonn

    Here's some random image I pulled from googling "shapeshifting dragon."



    It's *relatively* minimalist. Just a guy with an aesthetic that mirrors the dragon's and has some unhuman traits, like the eyes which are a giveaway.

    My preference would be something like this:


    With the ability to transform into a dragon in battle preferably, of course.
  • AmonkhetAmonkhet Registered Users Posts: 6,038
    What they said about the leaders of Cathay being very different and unusual...then I hope the Dragon Emperor is always in Dragon form...otherwise its not really that much different then is it?
    Albion would make the perfect Total War Warhammer 3 pre-order; with Hengus the Druid and Bran MacKerog as Legendary Lords.

    Am I the only one that thinks he should just appear outwardly human, but with Dragon Blood in his lineage?
    I think giving him the ability to shapeshift into a dragon just sounds silly.
    If he is able to appear as a dragon I would rather they explain it that he can mind possess dragons and control them.

    At least that's my feeling on the Emperor that will be playable in game. If we're talking historical lore first Dragon Emp then I wouldn't mind that one being an actual Dragon.

    Plus we know from lore one Emperor was at least human or part human. Prince Xian Ha Feng's father. Prince Xian Ha Feng himself was never described as anything other than human.
    Something tells me this comment will get a Disagree

    I hope so too, and Smite-like depiction too would be my choice.
