Native to the continent of Australia is a great, green dragon that the locals call Jabberwock, which translates roughly to “offspring of violent action.” This creature has been described in local literature as having “The jaws that bite, the claws that catch” and “golden eyes that burn as flame.” Indigenous myth states that only a vorpal – which roughly translates as “fine steel” – weapon can pierce its dense, thickly-scaled hide. Few specimens of this breed of dragon have ever been encountered in the wild, and it is a testament to Pavio Yaz’s arcane skills that he was able to capture it.
Similar to other dragons, the Jabberwock does have a breath weapon. However, unlike it’s European and Asian cousins that breathe fire, this dragon breathes a cloud of toxic gas that causes the victim to begin choking on their own lungs as they dissolve from the inside. A gruesome fate – and one I hope all our Rangers partaking in this hunt will avoid.
Jabberwock are highly intelligent, but prone to lashing out in pure animal instinct if attacked – hence their name. The teeth of this beast are capable of slicing through full plate armor, and its claws can crush a full-sized ox with ease. Additionally, this dragon has a singular horn erupting from its snout that it uses to fling prey and opponents into the air before devouring them whole. Engaging with the Jabberwock from a great distance is highly recommended.
Hunting the Jabberwock:
While our hardened steel arrowheads will likely pierce the Jabberwock’s dense scales, our Jaeger Meister’s recommend aiming for the dragon’s eyes for greatest effect.
