    You can sell it for 500 GP at any shop. NO use beyond that whatsoever.

    well seeing as wyvern hide is not even protected against +1 weapons, it wouldn't be good against many things, and even as a good luck charm or souvenier, the thing died, not very good luck if you ask me.

    Firkraag died, yet I was able to forge a decent suit of full plate +2 out of his scraggly hide.

    meh, here goes the story of what REALLY happened to Firkraag the Red, he had previously digested a few unlucky wyvern helmets that idiot adventurers had worn to try and kill him with, and they had not been thouroughly cleaned out prior to his eating the helmets or the idiot adventurers that wore them, so these brain eating worms got into his mind and made him cast death on himself, only your screen makes it an invisible msg and a very small msg at that, font of .000000001 so you can't read it, and THAT is how firkraag dies! so his plate mail from his skins is still lucky, just dont take anything off of his head, cause those brain eating worms are still a major hazard........AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH, nevermind, just my hat, wow, got scared.

    500 gp? not much for killing a wyvern. Well, I think this game is too overpowered for such a small amount. Not worthy.

    Actually 500gp does sound like a pitiful amount when you think about it. Considering how tough wyverns are - a fair challenge for a group of 5-6th level PCs - you'd think selling the head of one of them would be worth more than 500gp.

    well just think about this, the head is just like a bounty, if they put 10000 gold bounty on all wyvern heads, they would A. be out of money really really quick, and B. the wyverns apparently have godlike abilities of scent, so the area where they put all of these "trophies" would be overrun with at least 20 wyverns, and that would appear to be a helluv a problem.

    Wyverns are just a carry-over from BGI. They WERE tough back then and so 5000 WAS a lot. However, since Black Isle did not want to waste the energy they put in animating their exceptional creatures, we have the wyverns once again. Plus Lucy is just way too cool.

    Nothing as far as I know. She just seems to be a wyvern the designers thought would be a good idea to stick in the back of the Adventurer's Mart.

    Or maybe the Twisted Rune put her there...?

    You could also use Shadowkeeper to give yourself a million gold but it's not a very exciting way to play the game.
