Gold coins are the unit of treasure represented in the game. This is the only real thing that is important to the dragons. Gold and having a lot of fun is what this game is all about. 1 gold is the equivalent of 1000 gold pieces worth of loot, including gold, gems, magic items and other valuables a dragon amasses in its lair. For ease of the game all treasure from an encounter is called gold.
At the beginning of each and every round of play, one player, rolls a breath weapon dice. This will indicate which breath weapon type has an advantage during the round.
