Woot!!! Wyrm Queen figurine "gets her due"

17 posts in this topic

The plot deck that comes with the Wyrm Queen also looks really awesome! I was not that moved by the other previews I have seen for the Splig plot deck, I felt the wilderness condition made it really quest specific. The Wyrm Queen's focus on search items being a way to punish the heroes really sounds awesome! I think I for sure will be picking this one up.

So excited for this one! My group hasn't done any Lair of the Wyrm quests yet, so this would be a chance to introduce the wyrm queen to them finally.

 

And she is a lady dragon >D More points for this pack!

Not so sexy, but yes shes does.

Maybe she's the mother of Belthir ?

That's not how it will work. Splig has a card that after a mission starts can give one monster group the wilderness trait. So it works for any group.

That's much nicer than what someone else said, which was that he had a card that gave Goblins the Wilderness trait. Might I ask where you got that information from?

It's very possible. Both are very old, and the Wyrm Queen did create hybrids to begin with >o! Mama Valyndra?

I always pictured the hybrids being created by a, uhm, less traditional method...  Like magic or something.  As opposed to Valyndra and some human...uhm...  You know what?  Never mind.

I think Magic was involved. Otherwise it's really... odd. maybe before Valyndra became power hungry? or maybe her hunger left her with the desire to make such beasts. We know from LotW that Valyndra or her goons can't make their own armor, OR they can't make good armor. They had to steal Jerom to do so. Maybe Valyndra's real strength is in magic. Maybe she bullied someone to do her work for her, since she's good at that. Either way, she would be known as their mother. Something tells me she would be ticked if they started to call her mommy though.

Valyndra is believed to be the first of the Dragonlords to make hybrid warriors, but she was certainly not the only one.

 

Belthir refers to himself as a scion of Gryvorn during the Shadow Rune campaign.  "Scion" means heir or descendent, which means Belthir himself traces his hybrid origins back to Gryvorn rather than Valyndra.

All of the Dragonlords are power-hungry.  It's kind of their shtick. =P

 

The process of creating dragon hybrids is never fully explained, but I would agree it's safe to assume that the fundamental process is magical, rather than biological.  Firstly because inter-species cross-breeding (especially between something like a dragon and something like a human) is highly improbable, and secondly because Terrinoth is a family-friendly setting, gosh darn it! =P

 

As an aside, there is some evidence from Runebound to suggest that there were other hybrid species created besides dragon hybrids.  Minotaurs, for example.  Granted, 99% of the time the word "Hybrid" is used, they mean dragon hybrids.

 

 

We know from LotW that Valyndra or her goons can't make their own armor, OR they can't make good armor. They had to steal Jerom to do so.

 

I was left with the impression that they needed Jorem because of his special metal (Aurium, was it?)  It's not that they can't make good armor, it's just that this guy has discovered a new and significantly better material, and thus far he's the only one who knows how to work it.

 

I'm sure Valyndra and her goons could have figured it out themselves, they just weren't patient enough to do so.
