In the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, Hlal is the dragon deity of humor and storytelling.

Quoted from the Draconomicon, page 34

"Hlal is a sleek, copper colored dragon with a ready grin and a happy glint in her eye. Of the dragon gods, she is the most friendly to non-dragons.

Hlal enjoys sharing stories and songs with those who appreciate such things, regardless of the listener's race or background.She has little use for tyrants, and even less patience for cruelty or bullying. She teaches that one must be free of restraint, whether real or psychological, in order to freely express one's opinions.


Hlal's priests are often multiclassed cleric/bards, using music and poetry to spread their faith. Places of worship are usually simple shrines, which can be packed up and moved to the next town at a moment's notice. The followers of Hlal share much in common with those of Olidammara, and many pay homage to both deities simultaneously. Both Hextor and Venca are among her chief enemies, because of their portfolios
