Rage drakes are dragon-like creatures of fierce melee strength and speed. Irritable and selfish, they are prone to fits of tempestuous fury, and yet are occasionally sought out as mounts.


Rage drakes open combat by pouncing, biting, and attempting to worry their opponent by shaking them back and forth. They are capable of flying into violent rages that significantly boost their physical capabilities, and tend to do so after drawing blood, or being hit.


Rage drakes aren't able to be domesticated, but they can be bribed into service -- they love eating gems, and a warrior can keep one in service by feeding them. Rage drakes are difficult to ride, but brutally powerful when persuaded.

Fiendish Rage Drake[]

Some demons breed rage drakes for their abyssal armies, as much for intimidation of their own ranks as for their effective combat abilities.
