Wyvern's Lure

By:

“ew. What is that smell? Where did it come from?” 
“Where did that wyvern come from!”

A very ordinary looking plant this, making most observers think it a common weed. Nothing special about at it all, except it’s smell. Giving off a strong stench that sticks to any who come close, this appears to be a mere annoyance but nothing more. Unknown to the adventurer who encounters it though, the smell is actually very simmiliar to that of a wyvern’s. This allows the plant to grow lushly, unbothered by grazing animals such as elk that want to avoid the ‘‘wyvern.’’ The PC’s however, do not know this and will be suprised when animals they encounter, run off in terror upon catching the stench that hangs to them. Horses in particular,will be terrified.It might even draw any wyverns in the area that are determined to deal with the ‘‘intruder.’’

I would of called a Wvyrn tail or something else. I am sure people would of quickly figured out the association between them and the wvyrn.

Maybe if there was a reason it was called that, like the person who discovered the smell or that Harral was a mythic Wvyrn tamer or something. The name just comes out of no where.

This stuff would of been rooted out in all civilized places, so it will only grow in the open wilds far from people.

There are some raw spots but I like the idea and I like how you mentioned possible adventure tie-ins.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
