The draconic pantheon consisted of the deities worshiped mostly by dragons, though some of these deities also had among their worshipers half-dragons, kobolds, lizardfolk, troglodytes, spellscales, and even humans[1] and dragonborn.[2]

After the creation of dragonkind in -30000 DR, the dragons of Toril worshiped the draconic pantheon almost without question.[3] However, due to the holy wars between the various religious factions of dragons,[3] draconic philosophers came to the conclusion that all of the fighting was wasteful and that gods who allowed such behavior were not worthy of their worship. This started the dragon's apathy toward their gods, which lasted for thousands of years.[4] Due to this, it was speculated that several members of the original draconic pantheon just died and vanished from the multiverse due to the lack of worship.[5]

After the last Rage of Dragons, in 1373 DR, the dragon population of Faerûn was greatly reduced in number.[6] That realization sparked the need of dragons to look for the help of their gods, marking the prophesied "turning of the Great Cycle", an ancient myth that foretold the return of draconic religious fervor.[5][6] The dragon gods who survived the long years without worshipers received a great influx of power from their new draconic followers. However, this also threatened Faerûn with the possibility of a new Dragonfall War.[5][6]

Although members of the draconic pantheon had personal lairs and domains in many of the outer planes,[7] their own plane was the Dragon Eyrie.[8] However, this plane was destroyed by the Spellplague in 1385 DR, and the draconic deities drifted to the domains of other gods.[9][10]
