Space Drake

The space drake is a giant dragon-like creature nearly 60 feet long. The drake is comfortable both on the ground, in space, and in atmosphere. It walks on the ground on four powerful legs and can fly swiftly on vast wings that sprout from its back. Its mouth is filled with razor sharp teeth as long as a man, and its tail can swat helicopters from the sky. Its most dangerous weapon, though, is its breath: the space drake can spit devastating lightning from its maw.

The average space drake is sapient but not very intelligent (IQ 7) with average agility (DX 10). It is aggressive in a fight, maneuvering to face its enemies so it can use its breath weapon. The armored scales are also thinner on its hind quarters, leading the drake to protect its rear.

Dungeon Crate, May 2016

For my birthday last month, my friends got me a subscription to DungeonCrate.  This service is the RPG-focused entry in the current "crate" craze, where you pay a subscription fee and a box of themed stuff is sent to your home monthly, quarterly, or whatever. Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.
