Crystal Wyrm - Lyra Battle Challenge

Starting HP: 50,000

Element: Aurora

 The Crystal Wyrm has been vanquished!

With a final roar of fury, the Wyrm succumbs to the combined power of those who arrived to stop its rampage.


The Wyrm's trail of destruction is long and terrible. While it will take time for the nearby towns to recover, the foundations of their homes and communities stand firm. Thanks to the daring efforts of the adventurers who heeded the call for help, Lyra has a chance to take a breath and rest before they begin the hard work of rebuilding.


The Battle has ended.

Herds of Volai have been spotted streaming down from the Starsong Mountains like a waterfall. Deep rumblings echo from within the mountain range, thunder among the sweeping waves of the terra borealis. The foundations of the homes scattered at the base of the mountains crack, windows shattering with the vibrations.

Then, three days after it all started, everything goes quiet.

Not a single bird whistles in the trees.

From the depths of the earth, from the heart of the mountains, an explosion of crystals jets from the highest peak. A long, sinuous, wingless form leaps into the air, crystals streaming from its scales as it flies, casting rainbows from the clouds and seething auroras from its maw.

The crystal wyrm floats motionless in the sky for a long, long moment. Then the mountains rumble again, and the wyrm dives to the ground like lightning, destroying everything in its path.

  1. Draw or write about your character fighting the boss!

  2. Draw or write about your character trying to stop the boss without fighting it. Do they tie it down with ropes? Do they change the landscape of the Starsong Mountains to sing it to sleep?

  3. Draw or write about your character taming the wyrm. Do they offer it food? Can they calm it down enough to ride on its back?

  4. Draw or write about your character building a construct large enough to fight the wyrm one on one. Do they build it from local crystals? Do they have their own mech? Do they summon up enough magic to create a magical challenger?

  5. Draw or write about your character taking shelter in the crystalline caverns the wyrm came from.

  6. A herd of Volai is caught in the crossfire! draw or write about your character protecting the Volai from the wyrm.

  7. Your character’s weapon breaks! They must construct a makeshift weapon from what they have around them– crystals! Draw or write about your character and the crystal weapon they build themselves in the heat of the battle.

  8. The crystal dust that blankets Lyra gives the planet a year-round winter look, even at the height of summer! Draw or write your characters doing summer activities in the winter-like setting of Lyra. Are they on a snowy beach? Are they picnicking beneath a frosted pine tree?

  9. Do a color study! Draw your character in a color palette dramatically different from their usual one.

  10. Draw or write about crystal-themed clothing your character acquires on Lyra. Is the clothing sequined with crystals? Enchanted sheets of paper thin crystal designed to layer together and not shatter as clothing?

  11. The Starsong Mountains sing a mournful melody as the battle rages on. Write a song or a poem about your character or their experiences on Lyra.

The dragon’s roars start to resonate with the crystals, shattering them into dangerous flying shards! 

12. NEW PROMPT: Draw or write about your character dodging or shielding themselves from the shards as the crystals around the battlefield explode.
