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.

In nature, for instance, a rhino has flies and ticks etc, that live on the hide and live off the blood. Rhino will visit and lie in ponds where turtles will clean the underwater portion of the ticks and a species of bird will clean the the top of ticks and other parasites. What if where the characters camp there were a species of animals that lived off wounds of the creatures. PCs camp. Anybody with wounds on there body are soon covered with small rodent - insect - shadows - whatever. Would immediately see it as a threat I would imagine. But perhaps one of the wounded didn't wake up when it happened, and when they did finally wake they were completely healed. Perhaps somebody was warned of something attacking them but they were able to notice that the wound was actually getting smaller instead of larger. Or maybe they successfully beat the creatures off them and don't notice an improvement, marking this place never to rest at ever again....later learn that villagers send their wounded there but they keep it a guarded secret because they don't want all the attention or traffic and what comes with such a special gift. Could turn into something more too if characters decide to start blabbing about it.
