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.

Tambourine

       By: Yokima.van.zephrill

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
