The small rat around your foot suddenly grows and swells into a mangy, scabby, dragon like beast the size of a dog. It snarls and hacks as it charges you.

The Sewer Drake is a foul, degenerate species of drake found in sewers. They are stunted and malformed, lacking the size and breath weapon of normal sized Drakes (The closest they have is their stinking cloud ability). They make up for this with a diseased bite, and an affinity for Rats. Able to naturally change into a rat form, the Sewer Drake often bullies local Dire Rats into acting as his spies and minions, stealing treasures and trinkets and keeping them abreast of all the goings on of the surface world. They often go up in rat form themselves to spy on humans and to hunt down easy prey.
In its natural form the Sewer Drake is 3 feet tall and weights 200 pounds.
Authors note: And we're back to the Sewers for this one. This one is kind of stretching it, in that its not a rat but rather a dragon that assumes a rat like form. But hey, good enough for tax purposes.
You probably wont see any true dragons from me on this. Way, WAY too complicated. Well, maybe, once I get more comfortable with stating stuff up, but for now the best you will get from me are drakes.
Just two days left of Rat week. Are you as excited as I am? Is anyone even reading this?
