Dragons are creatures with nearly unlimited life spans. They can survive for long periods of time, and no one has found a dragon that has died of old age. Adolescence is usually marked by the growth of a hatchling’s wings, although not all breeds of dragons grow wings and some breeds have other traits that indicate the beginning of maturation. Once they hit adolescence, hatchlings change quickly, maturing to their full forms in only 2 years.
Dragons don’t communicate with each other verbally, but they will growl to scare off predators and frighten prey. Young dragons will emit an extremely high-pitched squeal when they are frightened. To communicate, they use telepathy with each other and to speak to other creatures.
Dark green dragons, once they mature, appear to become an entirely different species. However, this isn’t true. Rather, they burrow underground and get nutrients from their vines. These vines are sometimes referred to as Dragon Grass. These dragons are very violent, and will use their vines to capture, kill, and eat anything that moves, as well as nearby plants. Luckily, their range is limited and they cannot use magic. Dark green dragons tend to be easy to spot since they usually kill all plants around them and thus are usually surrounded by a large clearing.
Folle likes rhythm and the different sounds things make when struck with her vines. She lives in a spot with a variety of items around her - rock, packed earth, hollowed out tree trunk, a pile of crunchy leaves that fell from her vines, some loose stones, and even a breastplate of armor from a hapless knight that wandered too close once. Using her vines to tap on or toss the items about, she creates intricate sound patterns and maintains them for hours.
Bards passing by the region have been drawn in by the fascinating rhythms, many of whom showed their appreciation by inadvertently becoming Folle's dinner. Now word has spread of the danger, and musicians across the area consider percussion a cursed pursuit.
