The Tome of Lore: Table of ContentsSryth™ Expanded Info Entry
Although by no means common, the dusk dragon is perhaps the most
prevalent of Sryth's dwindling dragon population. These majestic creatures
usually inhabit remote woodland areas, and have been known to employ the services
of forest trolls, or ogres to do their bidding -- it is more often than not a
partnership forged out of fear on the part of the dragon's hirelings.
Dusk dragons are so named because of their dark grey scales that make them
difficult to spot in the dark. The reclusive forest reptiles are ill-tempered
and detest most other beings. They usually only emerge from their hidden lairs
at night when they fly above their domains seeking out prey or inspecting the
lay of the land.
Like most of their kin, dusk dragons possess a powerful breath of fire that they
will not hesitate to use if needed.
Perhaps the only living creature an adult dusk dragon (and most other dragons for
that matter) fear, is a full-grown griffon .
One of the largest and most powerful dusk dragons in recent memory was a particularly
wicked beast known as Qianzal. Despite his formidable power, the ancient dusk dragon
reportedly met his end at the hands of Hawnley-Jakk .
Another infamous dusk dragon, known as Nereben, was responsible for the
razing of Grevorr over four hundred years ago.
