Wyverns are a terrible sight to behold, supplanting the terrifying Dragon as its predecessor faded into the mists of time. Even without a breath weapon, Wyverns have shown themselves to be terrible foes, particularly renowned for their enormous stamina.
It is from these beasts that the term, “Blood from a stone” is derived as the Wyverns heart is incredibly muscular and large, pumping huge quantities of blood through the beast, circulating oxygen to its muscles and allowing it to fly without tiring for days on end at high speeds! After death the saying becomes even more literal as rigger mortise sets in permanently in the organ, becoming nearly as rigid as rock!
If properly treated, this most vital of organs from this extremely magical creature can prove a massive boon to a party of adventurers – if carved from the corpse on the night of a new moon, every dawn then on the heart will stir and pump out a quantity of the Wyverns life-blood from its four ventricles, a potent concoction that accelerates the natural healing properties of any living creature that imbibes it, as well as many of the other qualities of the Wyvern.
Wyverns Heart Stone
[Monstrous, Weight 1]
Each morning at dawn the Wyverns Heart Stone will produce 1D4 of Wyverns Blood Potion – requiring some form of container to hold it or the potions will be lost.
Wyverns Blood Potion
[Monstrous, 1 Charge, Weight 1]
Consuming a Wyverns Blood Potion will heal the imbiber for 1D4 hit points OR Roll 2D6:
On a 10-12, take +2 on your next roll, regardless of what it is as the memories of the Wyverns victories stir in the blood you imbibe!
On a 7-9, take +1 on your next roll, provided it involves combat or intimidation in some way as the natural fury of the Wyvern flows through you.
On a 6-, take -1 on your next roll to Defy Danger as the Wyverns residual scorn of its defeat twists your gut!
If rolling for the Wyverns Blood Potion bonuses rather than the healing effects, the imbiber is so filled with the residual memories and feelings of the creature that the thought of drinking more all but causes them to vomit until the next day.
