Although they are too intelligent to be trained with the
Handle Animal skill, rage drakes can occasionally be bribed
or bullied into serving as mounts for extremely powerful
riders. Riding a rage drake, even a thoroughly cowed one,
is always risky, and the rider must be prepared to deal with
the rage drake’s attempt to assert control or turn on its rider.
Controlling a mount is especially diffi cult when the creature
enters a rage—all Ride checks during such a time have
their DCs increased by 10.
A rage drake willing to serve as a mount and trained for
battle costs at least 15,000 gp. Frequent rewards of food,
drink, and precious gems can keep a rage drake happy and
reasonably loyal. In general, a rage drake rider should expect
to spend between 500 and 1,500 gp per month on the creature
if he wants to keep the beast content (or as content as a
rage drake ever is).

Primitive draconic creatures,
rage drakes have more in common
with large and dangerous
dire animals than with true
dragons. Although capable of
at least rudimentary reasoning,
rage drakes remain animalistic
in many ways. Cruel
and selfi sh, rage drakes embody
many of the worst qualities
of evil dragonkind. Some
sages believe that rage drakes
were created deliberately in an
attempt to fi nd a mount with
the fearsome physical abilities
of a dragon but without
the intelligence and powerful
magical abilities. Rage
drakes do not hoard treasure,
though they do value precious
gems . . . as snacks.
Rage drakes have dull, deep
red scales and the feline build common
to true dragons. Unlike many other draconic
creatures, they do not have wings. However,
their size and strength make them extremely fast
compared to most ground creatures. A typical
rage drake can grow to be over 12 feet long and can weigh
up to 6,000 pounds.
Rage drakes do not speak, but they understand Common
and Draconic within the limits of their intelligence.
