Recently in the high peaks of the far northern regions of the Black Mountains, myself and my team came into contact with the rare drake-kin beasts: Ice Wyverns. The first oddity I found with the encounter was to find such beasts so far from the Everwall. Many speak of large groups of said beasts nesting on the sheer nigh-endless walls constantly harassing the mysterious Aviaries that call it home, but this was to say the least unexpected. Such a discovery begs the question if such beasts can be found in other regions as long as they meet certain criteria, such as: high altitudes, extremely cold climates, and the area to have reasonably large sources of prey.
Through, unexpected means, I was able to procure a small vile of said creatures blood. I have many theories as to the applications of what could be harvested from such beasts. Dregordian’s use the scales of Thinder lizards for their signature armor, but one must wonder if the same process could be used with the scales of the Wyverns. I theorize that they would be much lighter to help with the creatures flight and their innate ability to live in and withstand cold climates could transfer over into the armor in a way that would not involve an Arcane Artificer. This sadly I can only theorize without said materials to use in study. The blood I believe could be used for a quite potent potion of protection against extremely cold climates, possibly being able to apply the creatures innate resistance to the user for some time.
These are all just theories but i plan to investigate to the best of my abilities, and in the future i hope to find even more rare and intriguing components for my and the schools studies.
