The Fantasy Art of Dungeon Siege II - Boss Monster - Talon the Dragon
Baldur's Gate is a series of fantasy computer role-playing games set in the "Forgotten Realms" Dungeons & Dragons game world. It uses the Infinity Engine and Dungeons and Dragons game rules. The complete story arc is covered by Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn, and the Throne of Bhaal expansion. The Tales of the Sword Coast expansion reveals additional areas but is not plot-critical.
The Dungeon Siege II fantasy game art on this page has cutscenes and screenshots of the dragon boss monster Talon.
Dragons are as mysterious as they are exotic, though some have a reputation for their fierceness or destructive abilities. Only the Dark Wizards proved successful in taming these beasts, which Valdis used to his advantage in the creation of his armies. Normally used to transport soldiers into battle, Valdis reserves only the most powerful of the dragons for direct attacks.
Rumors have spread that an especially vicious Dragon named Talon, one of the most powerful in Valdis' army, has been seen in the area of the Snowbrook Haven, laying waste to whole garrisons. With such thick hides, taking a dragon down by normal means is not an easy feat and their fiery breath makes quick work of most soldiers, cooking them in their armor.
Talon is the only boss the player fights with a minigame involving a ballista. In between, the Morden army catapults in the heavily armoured Durvlas until Talon is finally defeated. The party then continues on to clear SnowBrook Haven and collect the second piece of a critical artifact.
As if resurrected from death, the fierce anger and power that Dragons draw upon can give them extraordinary lasting ability. Talon appeared mortally wounded by the final ballista shot, but the pull of the Aegis allowed him to fight one final battle. It is when the party has collected the artifact in the calm and peace of the SnowBrook reliquary and are continuing down a quiet corridor that Talon makes a second, sudden appearance. Like the one true dragon in the original Dungeon Siege, Talon is too big to animate about the screen and instead is made to stay put and breathe fire at the party.
