A grazing Buffalord

Buffalords are rotund dragons that have stubby legs wings that connect to special protrusions on the back, horns on their heads, a stubby tail, and many spikes lining its body. It is incredibly docile, those encountering the few that have encountered them describing them as incredibly yak like. They have special saliva that when mixed with the herbs they eat, becomes the cure to the disease The Scourge of Odin.

History[edit]

These docile dragons travelled in large herds looking for herbs. It wasn't until the Scourge of Odin became so wide spread that it was discovered that their saliva was the cure to the disease, leading many to drive them to extinction.

Society[edit]

These dragons once travelled in herds but after a great destruction they were nearly wiped out and very few exist. They prefer to be left alone until breeding or they move to a new area.
