So, in the campaign I am running, I'm doing a side plot which I think every DM thinks about running after flipping through the Bestiary of Krynn - repopulating the Noble Draconians. If the metallic draconians finally get to repopulate, then so do the chromatic ones.
Here's my question - how many draconians are born from one dragon egg? Not having any distinct recollection of this being covered in the books, I had assumed that it was not a high ratio. However, one of my players, who has a strangely encyclopedic knowledge of things he reads seems to remember this being covered in the novels somewhere, and that a crap ton of draconians are born from each egg, and come out fully formed and ready for battle.
I've already stated in our game that even if they do come out fully formed, they are still "babies" in terms of actual intelligence, and that they wouldn't have anything but instinctual combat in them at birth.
The dilemma I have is whether I have provided with the party with way too many eggs, and I have to find a way to destroy/invalidate some of them so they don't have more female draconians on their hands than they know how to handle. The group has found the eggs in a form of stasis, so I can have some of them "go bad" if I have to, or say that perhaps the ritual on the eggs isn't complete, so that those removed from the stasis are ruined if they hatch "early."
