Dragons are Gathering
The sand shocker is originally believed to be a summoned creature used exclusively as a guardian. Since “The Storm” created the Wastes, they currently are living and multiplying throughout the Wastes, becoming an active part of the Waste’s ecology.
A deadly hunter, the shocker possesses both a strong paralyzing neuro-toxin and an innate ability to produce strong electrical charges (lightning bolts) from both its tail barb and organs on the top of its head. Its hide has many nodes that effectively create a static shroud enveloping the creature, capable of delivering sharp electric jolts if struck in battle.
Item Creation/ Components: If not damaged in battle, an intact spine for the sand shocker has the possibility of retaining a lasting electrical charge, lending itself to being used as the basis for electric/lightning magic items, particularly staves.
