Having newly been born into this world, the young wyvern is about six feet tall and resembles a miniature adult. Hopping about on its two wobbly legs and raising its barbed tail aloft, the young wyvern soaks in its surroundings with the curious gaze of a child. Needle-like fangs protrude from its oversized mouth, glistening with an uneven sheen. Its thin arms are melded into its half-grown leathery-black wings that sit tightly against its curving back, incapable of carrying the immature creature aloft.
Hatching from eggs, wyverns take a fairly long time to mature, and are usually born in clutches of eighteen to twenty eggs that can weigh nearly a hundred pounds each. Young wyverns are somewhat vulnerable and cannot fly, so they usually stay near their nests until at least half the size of an adult.
Though much weaker than an adult wyvern, young wyverns still have a potent sting that can cripple an unprepared adventurer. In addition, they are closely watched by their parents, who may come to their aid.
There are rumors that if taken before it hatches from its egg, a young wyvern can be tamed, but this is rarely tested as wyverns guard their eggs very jealously.
They are not known to cast any recognized spells. They are not known to carry loot in locked boxes.
HAS ABOUT 80 in all combat stats (strength, reflex, disc, stam, agil)
Will take bites out of corpses upon death.
Starts slowing down teaching around 850. Defenses less-so than debilitation, tm, and weapons. Can still lock but have to focus on specific skills more in order to move them.
With 650 ranks of skinning and 85 Reflex, these are just barely skinnable. Still fail about 1 in 5 times
Although their poison is potent (every poison attack that lands begins as critical/dangerous), with 80 Stamina no appreciable damage is inflicted even after multiple hits to the same area
- A young wyvern lurches forward to stab its tail stinger at you!
