Game Description
The Hunt is Plagued

Kaleni came running back to the Magical Mystery Team after witnessing the charlatan dragon chase down the Eldritch. "Guys, this is getting serious---," but before he could finish his sentiment, they all witnessed a sharp black beak poke through the blue portal. A scourge dragon with yellow eyes and sallow fur awkwardly flew into the Vale and touched down in front of Whitbee. The wizard pointed to the charlatan dragon's path. The scourge dragon twitched and craned its head sideways. With a muted guttural shriek, it hobbled away on hoof.

Nogard cut the tension, "I think we should follow this one together." The team exchanged glances and nodded in agreement.

"No way!" Kaleni blurted. "After what I saw, I'm staying right here." Moony-Loo nuzzled up against the frightened wizard and Kaleni gave him a pat on the head. Nogard conceded but instructed Kaleni to send up a signal flare spell at the first sign of trouble.

As the team followed the scourge dragon, they saw treat farm crops wilt and dry out almost instantly. Gardenia gasped so loudly that the scourge dragon snapped around to look behind it. Lumi cast a camouflage spell around the crew just in time. The scourge dragon continued. Gardenia, on the other hand, huffed and started slinging regrowth spells at the wake of withered crops.

Alone in a glade, the eldritch dragon stared at its tail and hind legs covered in a charlatan shroud. It looked up to see the trees all around it shrivel and dry. The grass turned brown and quickly encircled the eldritch dragon. As the unknown magic was inches away from the dragon, it flew up and out of harm's way.

Just outside the forest, Lumi pointed up at the eldritch dragon flying out of the spreading danger. The scourge dragon rose up and flew over the escapee. Their wings touched and the eldritch dragon saw a grayness spread. Its wings wilted and resembled those of the scourge dragon.

Just then, a bright, red flare shot high in the sky.


The Scourge Dragon can be bred by using a Decay Dragon and a Misfortune Dragon, in either order, at any Breeding Cave.

Possible References

  • The Scourge Dragon's birdlike face might be a reference to the bird masks that Medieval doctors used to wear, and the masks were believed to ward off plagues and diseases.
  • The Scourge Dragon is most likely, like the other members of the Shrouded Cavalry, based upon one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, in this case the Black Horse (associated with famine). This origin is also possibly reflected in the The Scourge Dragon's primary elements of Cold, Fire, Dark and Earth, the four elements required to breed the Ragnarok Dragon.
    • This is supported by the Scourge Dragon's quest name "Feast or Famine".
