Dungeons and Dragons has been a game enjoyed by lovers of adventure, fantasy and roleplaying since the 1970s. Players take on the role of adventurers exploring dungeons, castles, ancient ruins, and more in the quest for gold, glory, and magical items. Along the way, they run into all sorts of devious creatures who try to stop them.
Dragons are an iconic “boss” for Dungeons & Dragons. They make a fitting end to finish up a scenario, or work well as the final villain in a campaign. Due to their size and stature, dragons are an awesome and fearsome foe.

If you are a DM (Dungeon Master), a Dungeons & Dragons Gargantuan Black Dragon may be a great creature to work into your campaign. A gargantuan black dragon can intimidate even the most seasoned adventuring party. A dragon this size could be up to 50 feet tall and weigh anywhere between 20 and 50 tons.
If you are a player and you run into a black dragon, here is a little bit of strategy. They breathe acid, just like red dragons breathe fire. This means that you should avoid standing in front of them, if at all possible. Don’t let the party bunch up either, as this could let them be the victims of an AOE acid attack.
Dragons also have a deadly tail whip, so the best place to attack them from is typically the side. Try and make sure everybody is healed to full strength, or as close to possible, as dragons can easily take out a player with reduced health. If you know you are going to be venturing into the lair of a black dragon, it can be beneficial to buy some acid resist gear. Depending on what edition you are playing, a simple spell like resist energy that most clerics and druids can cast can also reduce the damage you take quite a bit.
