About

The jabberwock is an out-of-control monster who wanders the farthest edges of Feyland. Making strange burbling noises, it crashes through the woods. If the jabberwock is near, everyone is fully aware of its presence.

Fey creatures flee when this notorious dragon arrives on the scene.

Chaos Embodied. This wild dragon is the personification of chaotic evil. It embodies violence and rage.

Achilles Heel. Although it is a mighty foe, the jabberwock has an Achilles heel. It is vulnerable to magical swords, and with some luck it can be beheaded.

Burble and Flame. A mighty foe, the Jabberwock can blast flames from its eyes and confuses opponents with its strange sounds.
