The save is Constitution-based.

Snow kyeryongs are elusive and mysterious. They aren’t aggressive and have the best-tasting meat, but they are the hardest to find. Many hunters have disappeared in pursuit of this creature, only to be found in the spring having frozen to death. The position of the bodies suggest they simply went to sleep in the harsh cold.

This strange hybrid creature has the legs and hindquarters of a small dragon with the head and upper body of a rooster, while its wings are leathery skin with a fringe of feathered pinions.

Kyeryongs resemble small dragons but with avian heads and upper body features resembling roosters or hens. In some lands they are rare and revered by shamans and monks as guardians of sacred mountains and pools, but in other regions they are quite common and in such places they are regularly hunted for their meat. Each type of kyeryong embodies an aspect of their origin that is reflected in their powers.
