Swan Drake

By:

Not dragons proper, these beasts are often beheld in the respect that is commonly reserved for other beatific wildlife such as unicorn and pegasi.

Full Description
The Swan Drake weighs on average 500 to 550 kg, and has a body roughly the size of a medium sized horse. Their tails are long, tapering to a whip like point, and they have long necks, often twice the proportionate length of a normal occidental dragon. Their wings and legs are slender and graceful, and the toes are held together in a tight group, rather than splaying out in a heavy reptile fashion.

The Swan Drake has a narrow head, but a deep jawline. This gives it a small, but a very strong bite. It primarily feeds on freshwater fish, and wading birds. Not surprisingly, this creature is most commonly found in water areas such as freshwater swamps and areas of glacial lakes. they are also meticulously clean animals, grooming themselves constantly in the manner of a feline. They come in a variety of colors, but females are invariably muted in color, drab greys, and greens being the most common. Males, on the other hand can be vivid red, sky blue, or even a semi-metallic yellow. Sages and druids recognize these different colors as different species, but it is of little concern.

Additional Information
The drake has the intelligence of a pre-adolescent child, and will cultivate attractive plants around it’s preferred feeding area and den. They will stalk PCs, but more out of curiosity than malice. Surprisingly, the drake abhors unnatural magic and its creations. They will attack the undead with claw and narrow streams of scarlet and green flame. They can also be compelled to protect areas from poachers, or from magical creations such as golems, or other synthetic creations.

I like this entry, it gets a paw, but I just don't love it. Still the execution is very good and it is a complete post.

I'm a fan. It's well described, and a cross between a dragon a swan is completely new in my book. It's a pretty short post but covers all of the bases well.

I like it. I can imagine one of these with dragonettes swimming with it.

I think it needs fleshed out some more, perhaps with plot suggestions.

Hooper McFin's Two Shot Portal

       By: dudeington

Now, this ol' ramblin fellow tends to walk his talk a bit too far down the train sometimes.. So I'll be brief in my recantin' of how it was my Tavern "came to bein'" on the multiverse as a weave of it's own spell.. And how I'm even alive to tell the story!

You see it's simple really, trust me.. that's my specialty, keepin it elementary. And you can trust this old Bard.

Anyway, this one night these wizards get a ramblin' on about the temporal exististance of space and time and how it could be manifested in a weave of super dimensional space. whereupon the folded space would give rise to an infinite number of entrances and exits to one or many spaces. Now, seein' how my talkin' sometimes get's locked into the way us folks used to talk back in the ol' west. These wizards didn't know I was a master of the word. and I had heard everything they said. They were also a bit over the wagon, while I was steerin' the show.

So that's how it came to pass, I struck a bargain with the wizards. They come to me in the morning and conjure up their idea into reality and I'd pledge them my life, my existance.. in essence my soul. but in a much nicer sense of the word. So they came by in the morning a half remembering our talks the prior evenin'. And I recanted their words verbatum, and that's how it came to be. The spell was complete that afternoon. My tavern would be the super dimensional cube that would exist in this weave of space and time, folks could come and go as they please, knowin in mind some of the rules and limitations set forth.

A few of 'em as follows.

No feller can be causin a ruckus inside any of my fine establishments, as always rule number one god damnit.

n' second the portal works kinda tricky. When ya outside ya cast the spell and lend your will to luck a bit and regardless the doors to the bar will appear, the windows a luminescent amber.. you can hear the chattee but ya can't see in. And the catch is the door might be locked, in which case you chalk it up to lady luck and go walk off and try again in an hour. Now most times the door pops right open and from the outside you always come in the front door, immediately greeted by myself or one of our many fine patrons of Hooper McFin's Ale & Steakhouse.

Now when ya cast the spell from inside the Tavern, another catch comes up. The back door is mainly a secret for the non-initiated staff and the regulars but for sake of the prose let's assume we all know there's a secret door in the back with a portal there. Now when you go on through this one, you got two scenario's you oughta be aware of. One is ya pop outside relative to the same spot you came out. The other is, you walk back on into this one or another of our many Hooper McFin's Ale & Steakhouse.

so it's a clever quantum railroad I got my tavern and my people's caught on. But, Hey the show's sure as always goin. ohhh' rutin tootin skidoodle -

** And that's it.. that's the only notes I found on the spell, apparently out there somewhere is a Tavern caught on the mighty ebb and flow of the multiverse. Well. at least I can put to rest my torment as to the condition now referred to as "Hooper McFin's Teleportation Paranoia".
