or begins its turn within that area, it must make a DC 11 Dexterity
save or suffer 1d6 piercing damage.
    Combat:  Sapphire drakes are difficult to injure due to their tough hide and are vicious opponents.  Their most common tactic is to split into 2 separate smaller drakes and gang up on their prey.  They will cause gemcysts on their hides to burst and terrorize any prey that gets to close to them.
     Habitat and Socity:  Sapphire drakes are created through a magical ritual generally practiced by Cults of Nilat the Corrupter.  The process requires a herring egg and close to 2 years of foul ceremonies.  Sapphire drakes are hard to train due to their poor sense and low intellect.
    Legend and Lore:  When sapphire drakes are destroyed, they shatter into many tiny gemstones.  The sage, Korwin of Nuln warns that the gems are worthless and are commonly called witchphire.
