Remember if this gets voted in every thing is subject to change. Also yes this is a made up subspecies since most creatures in the lore are subspecies. My idea basically enlargers the hatzeg and has two saddles one for ten survivors or one with blimp and three barreled battleship turret on it. Unfortunately I don’t have any art work I’m not an artist when it comes to animals.
Wild: While wild the hatzegopteryx soars above fjordur looking for prey and nesting in Asgard upon a cliff fiercely protecting their young unless a survivor has happened to befriend one. They can be pacified with a combination of a stench of bug repellant, cactus broth, and rare flowers.(cannot use the pacification to steal an egg)
Taming: Taming the hatzegopteryx often requires a meywing where upon you have to hunt with a hatzeg to gain its respect, you will need to pacify it with using a combination of cactus broth, bug repellent and rare flowers. Then it will let you raise an egg in the nesting site, but be warned once the egg hatches their parental instances will kick in and you will be chased out of the nest requiring a meywing to harbor the child.
Abilities: My favorite category if I could implement this creature it would have a gathering bonus and weight reduction for thatch, metal, flint, and obsidian, as well as with the ten person saddle, can use a dive ability. The aforementioned saddle can house up to ten people who can all equipped weapons while doing so. Another more expensive saddle allows you to at the price of gasoline operate an attached blimp with 2 wooden propellers and a three barreled battleship turret, with a bonus weight reduction for all items, and the disadvantage of not being able to dive. It would also have a fear roar. An even more interesting fact is that it can be the speed of an argy but also it only takes and while gliding (below 70 degrees) takes no stamina. The blimp also helps it sustain flight, and it has a natural resistance to and higher damage to tek. Furthermore the blimp saddle also has a walkable and buildable in piloting and cargo bay areas. This version also has a made up second stomach where they can store some shoulder pets for later regurgitation and use in combat.
Turret: This three barreled turret can rotate 360 degrees horizontally and between 27 and 200 degrees vertically. It can fire either incendiaries setting wooden and thach structures as well as animals and players on fire. Armor piercing has a damage buff against tek structures and rock golems and can pierce through structures dealing less and less damage with each structure traveled through. This turret can be used in long range mode which deals less damage and increases range or high damage mode which shortens the range and deals higher damage. This turret also has heat vision. Each round (for all barrels meaning 3 shells) costs only a rocket, 50 cementing paste, 125 metal, and 75 gunpowder.
Disadvantages: The Hatzeg takes large amounts of stamina to go upwards, and when firing the turret the hatzeg takes a small amount of damage from shock. The hatzeg also only has the speed of an argy, and the turret and blimp motors are expensive to operate. Furthermore ballistas, magmasaur projectiles, and jars of pitch can turn an advanced blimp saddle to a primitive one for a time and do more damage to the hatzegopteryx, and unfortunately they do have a severe weakness against wyvern breath.
Common Name: Hatzeg
Species: Hatzegopteryx Gigatus
Time: Late Cretaceous
Hatzegopteryx Gigatus is a subspecies not all too different from its original form Hatzegopteryx Thambema except for the small factor of being as the name suggests way bigger than its normal variant with a wingspan of 50 feet all though this does not impede upon its gracefulness. Its beak, an interesting oddity, is also made of hardened bone with no skin or flesh. The Hatzegopteryx is a wonderful example of island gigantism being in the perfect habitat to grow this way. When hunting the Hatzegopteryx will often pick up a target and drop it from great heights, or the more common practice of landing and skewering a target with its beak and proceeding to swallow it whole. It really is a gruesome sight to bear witness to. But when not hunting the Hatzegopteryx will be gliding above the islands or nesting, yet presently I haven’t worked up the courage to visit the location where they do so yet.
Hatzegopteryx once tamed, the process being that of winning over a hatzegopteryx whence it will trust you nurturing its offspring, it will be a well all around purpose mount that any tribe should have. Like the quetzal on the island a hatzegopteryx is a mighty carrier of goods. Furthermore with its beak many tribes have bred the Hatzegopteryx to have a natural affinity for flint, thatch, metal, and obsidian. However this creature isn’t all seemingly passive in use, I have seen one tribe on the archipelago have a fleet of these with saddles to house up to ten people. All they really need to do then is get some riders, and then you have a perfect dog fighter, more so I would say than a tropeognathus. However the less common saddle practice of fitting it with a quite unique saddle turning it into a blimp with 2 propellers and all this to wield a 3 barreled battleship turret is also quite effective.
