【Bestiary 3】蛇龍緒論(Linnorm)
« 于: 2013-04-13, 周六 00:47:05 »
蛇龍

蛇龍是居住在世界北方,狡詐的原始龍類,牠們對其眼中的低等動物充滿了厭惡之情,而且總是想方設法在牠們不幸的受害者身上施加更多折磨。典型的蛇龍天生有著無饜的貪婪和駭人的貪食,牠們的洞穴裡到處都是大堆大堆丟棄的骨頭和四散的財寶,而他們還能把周遭搞得比這更慘。謝天謝地,很少有生物像蛇龍這麼魯莽而殘暴。

蛇龍並非真龍,儘管如此他們不可思議的力氣和致命的能力仍足以與真正的龍族一較高下。牠們能用巨大的身軀輕易碾碎小型的敵人,而那些被蛇龍劇毒的利牙所刺傷的人,很少能在那折磨人的毒素之下活到足以說出這些痛苦。蛇龍如蛇一般的身體沒有翅膀,但牠們能夠以超自然的方式飛行,牠們這麼做就好像魚游水中一樣自然。

除了身體的力量、劇毒和可怕的噴吐武器以外,這些野獸還擁有一種最後的防禦手段--死亡詛咒。這種強烈的心靈折磨以許許多多的形式呈現,但不便的是針對屠滅蛇龍者而來的酷烈報復。有些人主張這種詛咒來自眷顧蛇龍並將其視為協助毀滅的寵物的邪惡諸神。其他人則相信蛇龍的詛咒和精類的原始世界,也就是這些怪物的由來有關。無論事實如,詛咒的存在讓屠滅蛇龍和任其活命一樣危險。

更聰明的真龍對蛇龍經常懷抱輕視之心,覺得這些生物只是早期演化而成的野獸,並拒絕承認這些生物與他們有什麼關係。蛇龍對這事不太在乎,挑戰年輕或年長的龍就像對付其他闖入他們領土中的生物一樣平常。牠們簡單的心智讓牠們難以組成大聚落或是以小團體合作,所以蛇龍幾乎都獨來獨往,自己在廣大的地盤上狩獵以便伏擊路過的旅行者。蛇龍在漫長的一生之中只會求偶一次,然後雌性會產下幾窩蛋,每窩最多六顆。而整窩蛋之中只有一顆會活下來--第一條孵化的蛇龍會立刻享用其他還沒孵化的兄弟姊妹。

儘管蛇龍渴望破壞,牠們通常都住在相當遙遠的地方,從來不會離開世界北境。由於多數智慧生物都憎恨和懼怕牠們,牠們傾向住在孤立地帶以確保生存;蛇龍既殘忍又善於記仇,牠們的缺乏團結導致牠們常常劫掠那些試圖消滅牠們的團隊,不過這些團隊得是由真正令人印象深刻的成員所組成才行。通常,蛇龍會在牠所選中的住處過上幾百年不受打擾的生活,直到終於忍受不住沸騰的惡意衝出去大鬧一番。有一些村莊並不知道他們附近就棲息著一條蛇龍,但這些地方會流傳著一些關於「他們的惡龍」的傳奇故事。由於蛇龍可以蟄伏好幾個世紀,短命的村人們可能以為這些故事只不過是些鄉野傳說,直到蛇龍甦醒人們才不會再質疑真相。

蛇龍有許多不同的種類,但每一種都嚇人地強壯凶殘。牠們只吃肉,通常是吃山羊或其他山上的動物,如過附近沒有更聰明的類人的蹤跡的話。蛇龍吃飽後喜歡在他的寶藏旁邊睡覺,直到有人侵入牠的地盤或是感到飢餓。

以下只列出四種蛇龍。最常出現在傳說中的是峭壁鱗龍(crag linnorm)、冰雪鱗龍(ice linnorm)和天池鱗龍(tarn linnorm)(Pathfinder RPG Bestiary),但還有其他種類。傳聞中除了這些人人聞風喪膽的蛇龍以外,還有些更強大獨特的種類存在這塊土地上。在這些特殊的蛇龍之中,沒有哪一種會比火口鱗龍(tor linnorm)還要弱小(這種蛇龍常被誤以為是最危險的)。

蛇龍特殊能力
雖然每種蛇龍都有幾種特別的力量,但有幾種是牠們之間共通的,詳細如下文。
除了這些以外,每種蛇龍擁有一種吐息和一種毒素攻擊,但其效果各有所異。I
死亡詛咒(Death Curse)(Su):當一個生物殺死蛇龍時,他將成為蛇龍死亡詛咒的目標。詛咒的確切效果因蛇龍種類各異。所有蛇龍死亡詛咒的DC都由魅力決定。
自由行動(Freedom of Movement)(Ex):蛇龍擁有永久的自由行動,效果如同同名法術,此能力不能被以解除魔法的方式解除。
真知術(True Seeing)(Ex):蛇龍擁有永久的真知術,效果如同同名法術,此能力不能被以解除魔法的方式解除。

劇透 -   :
Linnorm
Treacherous primeval dragons of the northern regions of
the world, linnorms thrive on their hatred for those they
deem to be lesser creatures and seek to inf lict as much
suffering as possible unto their unfortunate victims.
Sweeping bones and treasures alike into giant piles in its
lair, the typical linnorm has a barbaric nature made all
the worse by its insatiable greed and atrocious gluttony.
Few creatures are as bold and as cruel as linnorms, and
for that most people are thankful.
Linnorms are not true dragons, but they nonetheless
possess incredible strength and deadly powers that often
rival authentic dragon brutality. Their massive frames
make crushing smaller enemies a simple task, and of
those who have felt the sting of a linnorm’s venomous
bite, few have survived the devastating poison long
enough to tell the tale. A linnorm’s body is serpentine
and lacks wings, yet these dragons f ly through the air
with supernatural ease, accomplishing the feat as easily
as a fish through water.
Beyond the physical might, venom, and devastating
breath weapons typical of all linnorms, the beasts all
share a potent final defense—the death curse. This
powerful plaguing of the mind manifests itself in myriad
forms, but always serves as a horrid vengeance against
any who might manage to slay a linnorm. Some theorize
that the curse is a sending from malevolent gods who
watch over linnorms and view them as destructionloving
pets. Others believe the linnorms’ curse is the
closest remaining connection they have to the primeval
world of the fey, from whence the first of these monsters
is said to have come. Whatever the case may be, its curse
makes killing a linnorm as dangerous as letting it live.
True dragons of higher intellect often hold linnorms
in great scorn, viewing the beings as prematurely evolved
beasts and refusing to even acknowledge the creatures as
related to them. Linnorms have few feelings regarding
the matter, battling younger and older dragons alike
just as readily as any other creatures who dare to step
foot in their territories. Their simplemindedness stif les
any ability to assemble mass sieges or even cooperate
in small groups, so linnorms almost always function
alone, individually hunting over large territories in order
to waylay as many travelers as possible. Linnorms only
seek a mate once during their long lifetimes, the female
producing several clutches of up to six eggs as a result.
Of these eggs, only one will survive—the first to hatch
immediately feasts on its unhatched brethren.
Despite their lust for devastation, linnorms usually
live in relatively remote areas, never straying far from the
northernmost reaches of the world. As they are universally
hated and feared by most other intelligent creatures,
their tendency to dwell in more isolated regions helps
ensure their survival; while linnorms are vicious and
unforgiving, their lack of organization makes them
highly susceptible to raiding parties seeking to eradicate
their presence, though such parties would need to be
made up of truly impressive individuals. More often than
not, a linnorm resides totally undisturbed in the spot
it chooses as its own for hundreds of years, stewing in
its own malevolence until finally snapping and going
on a rampage. Sometimes, villages aren’t even aware
of a slumbering linnorm’s proximity, but usually such
settlements have long traditions and local legends
revolving around “their linnorm.” Since a linnorm can
hibernate for centuries, villages composed of shorterlived
humanoids might consider these tales as little more
than quaint stories, but when the linnorm wakes, the
truth becomes impossible to doubt.
Linnorms come in many different varieties, but all
share the qualities of being horribly strong and bestial.
They feast solely on meat, usually eating goats and other
mountain animals when more intelligent creatures
such as humanoids don’t readily present themselves.
Linnorms are prone to gorging and then falling into a
deep sleep near their treasure hordes, waking either
when they become aware of intruders in their vicinity or
to feed once more.
The linnorms presented on the following pages
represent only four of their kind. The most legendary
linnorms are the crag linnorm, ice linnorm, and tarn
linnorm (Pathfinder RPG Bestiary), but others exist as well.
Rumors of even more powerful unique linnorms persist
in lands where these dragons are well-known and feared.
The largest of their kind, unique linnorms are never less
powerful than tor linnorms (who are often mistakenly
thought to be the most dangerous species).
LINNORM SPECIAL ABILITIES
While each linnorm has several unique powers, they all
share certain abilities in common, as detailed below.
In addition to these, every linnorm possesses a breath
weapon and a poisonous attack, but the specific effects of
these attacks vary from species to species.
Death Curse (Su): When a creature slays a linnorm,
it becomes targeted by that linnorm’s death curse. The
exact effects of a death curse vary, depending upon the
type of linnorm. The save DC of a linnorm’s death curse
is always Charisma-based.
Freedom of Movement (Ex): A linnorm has continuous
freedom of movement, as per the spell of the same name.
This ability cannot be dispelled.
True Seeing (Ex): A linnorm has continuous true
seeing, as per the spell of the same name. This ability
cannot be dispelled.

[月伶神話時間]

蛇龍又名林德蟲(Lindworm),是北歐-日耳曼民間傳說中的怪獸,長得像沒有翅膀的飛龍,有些也沒有腳,傳說他們的力量來自尾部。馬可波羅稱自己在中亞平原發現了蛇龍,並繪道:「(蛇龍)比看起來更為敏捷。能輕易將飛馳中的騎者撲落馬鞍。」
由於蛇龍實際上比龍更親近人心(?),所以許多屠龍傳說中被屠殺的巨龍其實是蛇龍而不是龍,比如說齊格飛就在在蠆蟲鎮降伏了一條蛇龍,聖喬治也在布蘭登堡殺過一條。

這是林諾姆龍吧?凡是每個林諾姆諸王都要扛龍頭過城門才行(目前除了一個白子女戰士國王除外,她有頭活得)。

3板是翻译成蛇龙
一般是叫蠕龙、亚龙

贝奥武夫杀死的是会飞的龙,而且是在英国。所以应该是翼龙一类的
典型的林德蠕龙是齐格飞杀死的法夫尼尔

鱗龍是我在網路上查到的翻譯方式,因為有一種龍就叫sanakedragon(雖然我覺得PF不會出),所以我就用了鱗龍,雖然我也覺得蛇龍比較好
