In the early days of the relation between Men and Dragons, it often occured that many a nest of the giant creatures got plundered by Drow, wild animals or other pests that inhabit the surrounding mountains. In part, this was due to the parents being away during military campaigns, leaving the nests for themselves, as was the habit of this species since ancient times.

To reduce the loss of eggs and infants alike, it has become tradition that a caste of men would take care of them. Over the centuries, these men became known as Dreeders and have since earned a great reputation for raising more dragons to adulthood than ever before. One of the first jobs they have to attain to is keeping the eggs warm and evenly temperatured, which they achieve by placing them in a hollow rock placed atop of an eternal fire and turning them around at well-defined times:

Just a quick build thrown together while thinking about the best way to approach the 5th Challenge, this is meant to give an insight in the daily life of the non-military people of the Dragonpeaks. As always, C&C are most welcome :classic:

To me, a Wyvern simply is a special kind of dragons, kind of like the Lung, the Wyrm or the Amphitere. We don't want to make it overly complicated, do we :wink:
