A type of dragon-kin closely related to wyverns, a lindwurm is a long, sinuous and rather snakelike creature. It has a horned, dragonlike head and broad fanlike dragon wings, but no limbs. A lindwurm may have scales of any colour, but its colouration has no bearing on its breath weapon or alignment. Though somewhat smarter than wyverns, lindwurms are even more savage and will attack any prey that they believe they can overpower (though they may be bribed with sufficient food or treasure).

A lindwurm attacks by biting, and three times a day may use a breath weapon of acidic venom: the breath takes the form of a 60' x 20' cone that deals 6-24 points of damage and inflicts a -4 penalty to all dice rolls for two hours if a save vs. poison is failed.
