18. 17 - Wyvern
The Wyvern are said to have legs the size of hundred year oak trees, and it only lends to the imagination that the size of the rest of it coincides. It would look pretty silly if it didn’t, to be honest. Two giant legs attached to a tiny body? Watching one trying to fly would be as funny as watching a T-Rex trying to pick up his car keys. They would’ve been fantastic at running though.
The Wyvern, or Wivern, are vicious and bloodthirsty creatures with mesmerizing eyes that blaze terrifyingly from their scaly heads. They have large wings, and a large, barbed tail with an arrow shaped fin. They come in a variety of different colours. They breathe fire, and their breath stinks of rotting flesh. They fly through the sky, searching for anything that seems a good meal, killing with tyrannical abandon anything that moves. They are generally found nearby destroyed and burnt up villages and fields of pillaged livestock (Good luck telling the difference between that and a normal field).
Other than breathing fire and a desperate need of a mint, the Wyvern are powerful creatures to be reckoned with. They sport sharp talons, and claws on their wings. The spikes on their tails are often used like spears, and their enjoyment in death is terrifying.
How to kill:
Taking note of the afore mentioned facts, the wyvern isn’t something to be taken lightly. I’d recommend full armour and some good artillery when taking these beasts on. Something with some range is probably a safe bet, but a trusty blade is also a good choice. An axe would also be sensible, to break through the scaly hide.
Be prepared my friends, these creatures a truly no joking matter.
