Ice Wyrm

Artwork of an Ice Wyrm.

For the Shards of Everdark monster, see Ice Wyrm.

Ice Wyrm is a monster in the Second Edition Conversion Kit. There is also a version of this monster in Shards of Everdark.

Description[]

These creatures are huge, segmented, wingless drakes, with an evil disposition matched only by their ferocious tenacity. Their rock-hard scales are rendered even more stiff and impenetrable by the frozen environs where they make their homes. Elongated necks enable cobra-like strikes, and the giant, toothy maws of the largest Ice Wyrms make the possibility of being swallowed whole very real indeed.
