Your average grunt will be likely to use the bones of gods rather than the bones of dragons - ordinary Gloranthan bronze. There is an overwhelming majority of EWF citizens following more or less shallowly draconized traditional cults - sufficiently to contribute to the pyramid scheme, yet retaining quite a bit of the ordinary methods.
> I presume where they could they would use ordinary bone as a replacement eg scalemail hauberks, but what about bladed weopons and other tools usually made of metal that bone, leather or wood cannot replace?
Dragonbone, and by extension dinosaur bones, are a sort of metal if they are similar to the bones of the gods. The main difference is that this material is sung rather than smithied. Using ordinary bone - whose bones? Using human bones has been claimed as a Zistorite technology for their guardian servitors (according to MRQ), and bones of herd beasts are common in Praxian technology (as far as it goes, which is about as far as a typical Praxian walks).
A pseudo-draconic set of armor made of sheeps' ribs and cattle thighbones... only an Eurmali would wear something like that.
