don't mix Great Dragons with Dragons
And Dragons are not invulnerable Gods
Western Dragons still have* a Strength of 40, Reaction of 8 and Body of 15.
Melee combat = win?
8 dice to dodging (even bullets without Full Defense) is still double the dice most metahumans have.
With an 8 charisma, a dragon can default on Con
and still have more dice than the average metahuman does to Judge Intent.
Base stats of a (western) dragon are worth about 780 BP (10 BP per attribute > 1, not including edge), so you're getting a 60% (!!!) discount with the April Fools table posted above, and then getting
Reach and an extra initiative pass, Magic (1?), Flight, Natural Weapons, Hardened Armor 8** and more.
Great Dragons have stats in excess of this. They're nucking futs.
*Average, assuming the values in the friends and foes section
**That's 23 dice to soak damage, assuming that the modified damage value is 9 or better.
