Dragons

The wilderness of world is populated in part by the favored of Nabuset, the dragons. While the warm blooded species are just beginning the slow process of rolling over the world, the scaled ones are stubbornly holding on.   As a rule, dragons are hearty, thick-scaled, and even those that eat plants are naturally equipped to end lives with a variety of claws, teeth, bony spikes, or tramping feet.   While each sort encompasses a variety of actual species, Mankind¬†has categorized them in the way that matters to them: how to deal with them, what sort of dangers they hold, and how they behave.   Basilisks:¬†Bipedal, venomous dragons. Some project venomous streams, while others rely on bites or drool. They tend to be very fast.   Wyverns: Bipedal, winged dragons. The largest have beak-like snouts as long as spears and the strength to pluck men into the air.   Drakes: Bipedal monsters with mouths full of teeth. Some have serrated teeth, others hooked, and some have claws on hands or feet. The smaller ones are fast and intelligent, while the larger ones rely on brute strength and can rival a single family home in size.   Behemoth: Thick legged, bulky herbivores. All Behemoth are massive in size, and all but the longneck variety have horns or spikes that can kill a man as surely as any weapon forged for the purpose. The Longneck Behemoth varieties rely on their bulk and long, whipping tails.   Leviathan: Ocean-borne reptilian monsters.   Seraphs: Winged serpents, most are venomous and all of them are ill tempered.   Garglers: Four legged, heavily armored herbivores. Many have clubbed tails, but when panicked, they abandon stored water by emptying their prodigious bladders and vomiting before trundling away. Desert people rely on them to store water in this way.   Wyrms: River serpents, usually venomous and have a habit of fouling the waters they live in to render them undrinkable. A sizable infestation can poison crops and even wellwater. Some have the ability to generate electricity.
