Big Mac’s work is super useful.
As part of my review and conversion project I have collated the following canon information to help those who want to add missing detail to dragon clans (as the boxed set encourages DMs to do) but remain consistent with the canon.
NOTE CWB= Council of Wryms Book 2.
Dragon Clans and their Domains
An important detail easily missed is that while dragons are the dominant species not everyone lives under dragon rule, though most if not all gnomes, dwarves, and elves (except some drow) do. Other intelligent humanoids might live as vassals, be allies of a dragon clan, hide in the wilds, or are enemies of the dragons. Beyond about twenty miles from any dragon controlled settlement are wild lands and people not under dragon rule (CWB9). PCs need never travel far to find foes and adventure. Dragon Clans might claim vast domains but not necessarily control all of the area they claim. For example Clan Exaurdon’s land “stretches across a large portion of Exaurdon Isle, reaching from the north forest to the central plains and encompassing all of the land between the two coasts.” (CWB9).”
Some clans are described the other are just names that you can flesh out yourself. The descriptions are rather formulaic providing a guide to fleshing out the others. Each has a paragraph on:
  • The clan’s territory and settlements.
    How the clan treats its vassals.
    The clan lord and other notable dragons
    The kindred of the clan lord and any other prominent vassals
    How the clan acts within the Council of Wryms
    Enemies and/or allies of the clan
You should also reference the “Dragon Clans of Io’s Blood Isles” poster and the notes below.
I wish that CWB had included a table or short summary of the relationships and known facts about the clans that were not given full write-ups. As an aid to players and DMs I have compiled this information myself below.
General
Clan Dewfeast administers the ‘neutral’ Tradetown and has good relations with most Clans even Chromatic ones; the exception being Clan Lightningwing.
Bloodtide covertly enslaves citizens of neighbouring clans (CWB18). Who are these neighbours? This took me some time to figure out. We are told the clan has three cities in the mountains of Bloodtide Isle and Malice is the largest of them. Carefully checking the map and clan posters tells us the neighbouring mountain cities marked on the map are owned by other clans. Therefore the other two cities of Clan Bloodtide do not appear on the map and are probably very near Malice. The neighbours therefore must be the clans that control the surrounding cities that are marked on the map. For clarity these are: Maragdus (Quietfire), Clawstrike (Hilltop), Lurker (Blacklair), Seaview (Salttown), and Battlewing (Seaside). Bloodtide raids might even strike further away but these clans are the most likely targets.
Metallic Dragon Domains
Battlewing: Bloodtide conducts covert raids to enslave this clan’s citizens (CWB18).
Brightscale: Pinnacle is friendly with this and all other silver clans (CWB12).
Clawstrike: Bloodtide conducts covert raids to enslave this clan’s citizens (CWB18).
Cliffwalker: This clan is in the Bronze Cliffs Trade Agreement which includes: Pinnacle, Cliffwalker, Tempest, and Waveflier (CWB12).
Coldwing: Pinnacle is friendly with this and all other silver clans (CWB12).
Fog: Pinnacle is friendly with this and all other silver clans (CWB12).
Justice: a relatively ‘rigid’ clan culture (CWB10)
Rockclaw: Does not regard the break-away Cutharn Clan as a true clan and strives to punish and re-absorb these ‘rebels’ (CWB13).
Seaview: Bloodtide conducts covert raids to enslave this clan’s citizens (CWB18).
Summit: Pinnacle is friendly with this and all other silver clans (CWB12).
Waveflier: This clan is in the Bronze Cliffs Trade Agreement which includes: Pinnacle, Cliffwalker, Tempest, and Waveflier (CWB12).

Gem Dragon Domains
Battlecry: has a mutual defense treaty with Clan Maragdus. Battlecry and Maragdus are in a ‘cold War’ with Clan Firetongue (CWB16).
Seaspray: rivals of clan Tempest for fishing rights (CWB13). Allies of Clan Majyst (CWB15).
Sharpwail: very close allies of Warclaw who live below their lands (CWB16).
Sparkle: allies of Clan Majyst (CWB15).
Starratiel: allies of Sunblaze and enemies of Verdiste (CWB11).
Chromatic Dragon Domains
Firetongue: desires the land around Quietfire City owned by Maragdus. However, fears to move against Maragdus while that clan has a defense treaty with Battlecry. The result is a tense ‘cold war’ (CWB16)
Frostwind: raids Majyst lands to steal vassals (CWB15).
Iceteeth: Enemies of Clan Starlight (CWB12).
Jagtail: recently suffered raids by Blackmoon (CWB19).
Lightningwing: enemies of Clan Dewfeast (CWB14).
Lurker: Bloodtide conducts covert raids to enslave this clan’s citizens (CWB18).
Magma: enemies of Sunblaze and possibly working with fire giants (CWB10).
Mire: enemies of clan Tempest (CWB13) and hope to absorb Blackmon (CWB19).
Nightshriek: enemy of Cloudwalker (CWB11).
Treesplitter: enemies of Clan Deepwater (CWB17).
Verdiste: enemy of both Sunblaze and Starratiel (CWB11).
Vermillion: Enemies of Cloudwalker (CWB11) and Pinnacle clans (CWB12).
