That's the name of the game and we wouldn't have it any other way!
This is the first Forgotten Realms Draconomicon accessory; the one that began the tradition of providing vital and in depth information concerning the powerful, magical creatures. Ranging from background history, to important dragon characters (NPC's), to the respective gods and pantheons, to instructions on how to preserve, cook and eat dragon meat, to which parts of a dragon can be used as spell components, and cross breading between the different types of dragons, to adventure hooks and actual adventures-like the GREAT adventure in Unther involving an ancient Blue Wyrm-which is included, this accessory has it all and more!
For the FR enthusiast, like myself, I also recommend the second, and latest (so far) FR Draconomicon accessory.
Moreover, for other FR references/adventures, I STRONGLY recommend: the Old Empires accessory on Chessenta, Mulhorand, and Unther, the Moonsea accessory, the Dreams of Red Wizards accessory on Thay, the Ruins of Myth Drannor Box Set, and the Ruins of Zhentil Keep Box Set (they are Second Edition AD&D, out of print and it will take a bit of searching, but it's well worth it). For updated editions of events see, the Third Edition Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting, which even though is quite expensive, is still very useful to all FR fans!
In short, if you don't have the original Draconomicon, GET IT! It might take a bit of searching to locate a copy, but it's well worth it!

Dragons! If there's one thing that sets the blood afire, it's that one, sinister, magical word. If you love high adventure, this is the book for you! Every aspect of the lives (and deaths) of dragons is scrutinized... there are chapters on dragon evolution and history, beliefs, powers, draconian gods, holy wars, dragon worship, lairs, hoards, role-playing, combat, famous dragons (such as Tiamat), new species, dragon magic, the dangers of hunting, complete adventures ready to play, and much, much more! If you love these perfect creatures of the imagination, you owe it to yourself to check this out.

Classified by the book-makers as a Forgotten Realms dragon-manual -- it is also quite compatible with most AD&D [and related] settings -- certainly Dragonlance for example. "Dragonomicon" can be very entertaining while equally informing about a big rich variety of dracoforms -- presenting many angles on many dragons [and their variformed relatives]. This manual is compiled as if it is a joint-effort of adventurers, historians and scholars of dragons. The descriptions and illustrations are rich and useful -- and sheer fun for dragon-lovers of all types. This fun and fine book is great for RPGers -- especially those using D&D variants or C&C [Castles and Crusades] +++

Learn the myths surrounding the dragons, discover their secrets, and unlock the mysteries that surround these grand monsters. Presented as a compilation of notes and stories by dragon-hunting adventurers, Draconomicon features details on roleplaying dragons for DMs, statistics for infamous dragons including Tiamat, new dragon species, dragon magic, and four short adventures involving the great wyrms.
This book is interesting to read and have many usefull information for DM, who like to terrorize players by dragons.
