15. 14 - The Rukodiora
Monster Hunter Frontier
From ground to shoulders, it is about 2m tall but with a long length of 22m. Its wing span is 20m. However, its wings travel all the way to its tale so it has more wings to go around.
How should I put this? This marvelling feat of mother nature's design out ways any other I have seen on this good earth. The dragon has taken survival of the fittest against us dragon hunters to whole new level. Its horns have a tremendous ability that I will come to later, and it is phenomenal and terrifying both at once, to say the least. Its gorgeous wings travel all the way to the tip of its tale, nothing seen before on many dragons and this gives it great skill in flight., gliding for hours upon hours without expelling that much energy by beating its wings.
So, what makes this dragon so dangerous to hunters and prey alike? Alright, I shall tell you; this creature has the ability to generate impulses of magnetic fields. What does this mean, you ask. It means that if you try to bring down this beast, sword in hand and fully plated in steel, you're dead. Your sword will be ripped from your hands, and you shall be plucked from the ground and pulled towards this dragon to your immediate destruction. Oh, it makes me shiver with glee and horror all at once! Isn't evolution amazing?! The dragon has stood the test of time for not many dragon slayers come after this monster, and it is just awe-inspiring!
How to kill:
As much as it hurts me to see this trophy of an animal decease, it is still a danger to us all and we must destroy it. So, rule number one, don't be a fool and take metal equipment. Nothing metal at all. Do that, and you will fall in moments, if not mere seconds. Your armour will have to be leather or no armour at all. And a weapon? That is a tricky dilemma, you need good steel to cut through its hide. All I can think of is to use a bow with flint tips. If not stone, something other than metal. Please do not take metal!
This dragon will pose such a challenge for you all. Not many live to tell their tales of its prowess. It does not use fire, or any other element, only its claws and jaws, but still it will bite through you like your body was a stick.
Stay safe, and do not take metal, if I have not said already.
