Curse of the Crimson Throne
The pseudodragon, sometimes called a house drake due to their size and good nature, is a miniature cousin of a true dragon whose bodies rarely grow to more than a foot in length. Their tails are tipped with a sharp barb, through which they can deliver a powerful soporific poison.
The pseudodragon population that makes its home in the the rooftops of Korvosa is in constant conflict with the large number of imps brought to the city by the summoners of the Acadamae. Many of Korvosa‘s nobles decorate their roofs with tiny amounts of precious metals, among them silver-lined weather vanes, shingles, and gutters designed to catch the sunlight to give their homes a distinctive sparkle in the sunlight. By spending years sharpening stings and teeth against these silver-enhanced decorations, or sneaking drinks of holy water from outdoor fonts at various temples, some pseudodragons have effectively transformed themselves into deadly weapons against the city’s imps.
