Powries sound like I could've used them in my Aysle adventure featuring redcaps.

Great Dragon is certainly a foe that isn't messing around. Should be able to breathe fire on the ranged combatants, Whirlwind the melee combatants, and cast whatever spell is useful all in one round with little regard to the penalties. Very impressive.

There's nothing for the lyche though. I feel so teased.

If dragons are creatures of concentrated Darkness, does this mean there aren't really good varieties? :(

The Great Dragon has Mind 18 and find 15. Is there a reason it has effectively -3 ranks in this skill? Is this an error?

Also on the Great Dragon, its bite is Str+2 (36), but its strength is only (!) 25. Possible error...

Could be a side-effect of Very Large - everyone trying to hide from a Great Dragon is so puny.

...have I mentioned my Ayslish sorceress is still trying to figure out why everyone in the Living Land freaks about about these off-brand draconids who can't fly, can't breathe fire, cast *zero* spells, and like, nine times in ten don't even overwhelm anyone with supernatural terror? "Oh, aye, this... T-rex sounds terrifying. Ye said its arms were *how* long, again? :roll: "

Of course, she hasn't actually met one yet.

Any chance of having good guy Dragons again? Personally I always loved how the Dragons were tied to the elemental forces. Seemed to make then distinctive from other settings

The Great Dragon looks quite Kaiju!

I'm rather curious about the difference between Dragons and Drakes, since there is Elven DrakeRider Perk Tree.
(And the Carredon, often referred as "dragonlike" but not as true Dragon. Is it a more greater Dragon now, or a different kind of "creature of concentrated Darkness", or actually a Giant Reptilian Flying Orroshan Horror?)

And, does just one Perk(Necromancer, for this example) works as "a strong enough connection to Darkness", the prerequiste for Lyche?
(The text says lyches retain their minds, memories, and spells, but doesn't specifically say about thier pesonalities and moralities, so there may be a chance that unlike Mummies, all lyches become GameMaster Characters regardless of how many Darkness Perks they have, however.)

And again, does anyone know about beings called Cherybs? I've heard of Cherubs or Charybdis, but not Cherybs.
