What about the skel dragon variants? Shouldn't they be listed too? (No, the bone dragon is not meant, but e.g. iron dragon skeletons.) Neither in the List nor in the species entries are those derivated dragon forms mentioned. There should be some info. Well, more than resistant to cold & posion anf cannot regenerate. Sth like 80% of the HP and damage... -- Bwijn 07:45, 24 February 2013 (CET)

See derived undead. There's no point listing them here, because then we'd pretty much have to put it for all the "list of x" articles that concern zombifiable monsters. Ideally, we should actually create redirects to that article (or maybe the article for the relevant type of undead) for all possible combinations, but that would take forever to do by hand - though I'm guessing one of the more bot-savvy people here might be able to automate it.
As a sidenote, bone dragons actually used to be called skeletal dragons, and have a Z glyph. So if you think it's confusing now... Imagine finding out the hard way that a skeletal dragon is much more dangerous than a dragon skeleton. Oh also, undead generally have more HP than their living counterparts, not less. -Ion frigate 09:17, 24 February 2013 (CET)
Indeed I didn't know that "undead generally have more HP than their living counterparts". And yes, I was wondering why e.g. a stone giant skel survived 2x Dispell undead and several rounds of melee. Now I know the reason, thank you! - Redirects to the derived undead should be allright. -- Bwijn 12:12, 24 February 2013 (CET)

Moving hydras and wyverns

I've been thinking about moving hydras and wyverns to the list of reptiles and amphibians since they fit that group more than they fit in here (despite hydras being 'D's). Anybody have any objections? --spudwalt (talk) 08:19, 23 February 2019 (CET)
