The Dragon Lords of Els'tar are a loose confederation of the leading evil dragons or Els'tar. They seek to control parts of the world for their own gain. They were at odds for many years with the Order of Eight after the Order discovered the army of the Dragon Lords, and their plans to conquer the continent. The Order managed to slay at least 3 of the Lords at various points in time. The army of the Dragon Lords consists of humans and humanoids, particularly hobgoblins, goblins, orcs, and lizardmen.
