Dragons and wyverns and wyrms, oh my!

Recommended Posts

I always figured they were all relatives in the same way that eagles, ostriches and chickens are all birds. Maybe adapted to fill different ecological niches, with slightly different lifestyles and food preferences.

RQ3 says that Wyverns are relatives to dragons, but that Wyrms "bony armour and draconic head show a relationship to dragons".

I have always thought that Wyrms are a kind of Dream Dragon, or are the product of a Dragonewt who has taken a different path to Dragonhood.

Wyverns might be hatched from immature dragon eggs that have either become tainted with chaos or have been hatched by a sorcerer.

One of my players (I'm running RQ2 again, yay!) is a Lhankor Mhy initiate, who has decided to study dragonkin for his thesis, so I have to come up with something to write about...

Aren't dinosaurs dragonewts that has strayed from the straight and narrow? They turn into a brontosaur if they let Sloth overcome them, allosaur if anger, etcetera. So what causes wyrms then? Curiosity? Indulgence? Hmmm...

Some dinosaurs are, others were created by Maran Gor. Things have different origin stories.

As for traits which cause a dragonewt to turn into a wyrm, wisdom, perhaps, or Knowledge, depends on which Dragonewt Traits you use.

The Empire of the Wyrms Friends chose to be friends with Wyrms, not Dragons. Maybe that's because Wyrms are easier to relate to, maybe because Wyrms are Dragons.
