Next year's theme for our local gaming 'Con is "Year of the Dragon", and I've had inspiration to prepare and run a "Dungeons & Dragons starring the Dragons" scenario. While I have a fairly varied amount of GM experience, my knowledge of D&D specifically is... somewhat limited.
I am looking for a recommendation on which version of D&D would most suitable to running full-sized True Dragons and recommendations for books/supplements to pick up (beyond the obvious players/DM/monster handbooks for whichever edition I go with).
Since this will be running at a 'Con, the best system would be:
- Beginner-friendly (will be open to players of any experience level);
- Able to support dragon PCs using RAW with minimal fudging/house ruling;
- Reasonably streamlined, especially for combat;
- Easily available (DriveThruRPG seems to have a fairly comprehensive selection of all editions from what I can see)
Thank-you very much in advance. If anything needs clarification please feel free to ask in the comments.
