Of Kings and Dragons
These rugged, frozen hills are home to remarkably large numbers of both remorhazes and frost worms. Both creatures are so dangerous that the Varki only come to hunt them once in a generation—often as part of coming-of-age rituals, in which young hunters must prove their worth by banding together to
take down one of these dangerous monsters. The Varki call both species ice worms, but they do not hunt frost worms—the creatures’ habit of exploding upon death generally leaves relatively little to scavenge as trophies, whereas remorhaz spines and teeth make excellent subjects for scrimshaw work.
