One of the most asked question since Daggerfall was released was 'Where can I find a dragon?'. Yes, there are dragonlings to fight, but they barely count as a true dragon. Although this was one of the many stated features in the game, Bethesda eventually stated that there are no real dragons in the game (unofficially that is).
There still is a way to meet a dragon in the game, however it is extremely rare, explaining why no one has found it until now. You can meet the dragon in a nobles quest (R0C4XY23 to be precise) which is only available if you have a reputation with the nobles from 40 to 49. Actually, the dragon is actually the Daedra Lord Peryite, but it's still a dragon none-the-less and can be interacted with as a regular NPC. The quest starts off as follows:
[Your name], old friend, am I glad you're here. I am in trouble with a group of daedra and am looking for someone to purvey a rare manuscript to an acquaintance of mine. The reward will be extremely liberal, but the possibility of daedric intervention is quite high. Are you interested?
You deal the daedra a fearful blow, but it remains upright for a moment, eyes locked with yours, and a harsh voice issues from its bloody throat: "You may slay my mortal form, %pcn, but my brethren will harry you mercilessly until we pluck the book from your lifeless hand. If you wish to avoid this fate, seek out _oblivion_ and surrender it to %g2. As the mediator between your world and mine, %g alone can persuade my Lord to call us off the hunt."
If you want furthur proof, take a look at The Dragon Screenshot. The marveleous credit for this discovery goes to Brian Libby (firstname.lastname@example.org) who was the original one who discovered this quest and the dragon. Credit also goes to Skeleton Man (email@example.com) who verified and organized much of the data.
Hopefully, now that the dragon has been found, custom quests can be created using him as an NPC. Stay tuned for more information.
