So I ran the Amber Peak quest last night involving the water ritual and dragon egg. I rolled to see which, if any of the bad events could happen and of course, I rolled all of them. Meaning the party faced a melee between a demon-wyvern, dragon and invisible sorcerer. Tl;dr-the wyvern died, the baby imprinted on a pc, and the mother distraut has flown away to burn down part of Amber Peak (they don't know that yet).
I am left wondering where to go with it now? While Zertorme wanted the baby dragon, I don't want him to turn and immediately crush them in a fit of pique. I was thinking he might take the long road of getting them into his service, serving him loyally and that way he has the dragon and it's 'master' working for him. I was thinking this might overcome his anger at losing his wyvern. Does that seem reasonable? I don't want him to be a raving villain as I think he sees himself as too much of 'the hero' for that.
And the dragon. What the heck to I do with that?!? Obviously it will be awhile before it grows to a size where it is more than an exotic looking cat. But equally, I don't want the party to never see it mature. I was thinking that maybe in six months, with enough food, it would be at least pony sized. Heck, if a PC with staningist can change the Ravenlands, why not a draconic king? I did tell the player that of course, it would take 8 seasons for the dragon to grow up, but we would rush the ending on the 8th because I'll want to change systems. He acknowledged that going crazy was his only recourse.
