The Wayward Wyrmling
A Chaos Scar Adventure for 3rd-level Characters
by Aeryn "Blackdirge" Rudel
"The Wayward Wyrmling" is a short adventure for five 3rd-level characters that takes place in the lair of an adamantine dragon in the Chaos Scar. The adamantine dragon Karonzaxus was recently slain by a powerful group of adventurers, but it left behind a single wyrmling. Fireclaw kobolds led by an ambitious wyrmpriest have moved into the abandoned lair and adopted the orphaned dragonling.
A slow-moving stream flowing west to east divides this large cavern in half. At first glance, the water looks shallow enough to simply wade across. In the southwestern portion of the room, the skeleton of a large dragon lies curled nose to tail. Only shreds of flesh and scales still cling to its bones.
