Sidebar - Additional Lore Elder Wyrmwraiths

The most powerful of these monsters, elder wyrmwraiths, sometimes form spontaneously from legendary dragons who were haunted with an irrational fear of the afterlife, but most are wyrmwraiths who have grown in power during an existence of well over a thousand years. The most powerful wyrmwraiths survive for millennia, typically by hiding away in remote caverns or wastelands and enacting their far-reaching plots through proxies. Some elder wyrmwraiths dedicate themselves to the pursuit of learning, but typically the only knowledge they crave is that which grants advantages against their enemies.
