Wyrmslayer: Drake, Dragon, or Wyrm?
The difference between god and mortal, even when discussing dragons, is not one of semantics. One a man can kill, the other he cannot. It's clear from the Wyrmslayer lore that Drakes is the proper name for the giant reptilian things found in the world, but people have commonly called them dragons. While strictly incorrect, just like "alot" is not a real word (should be 'a lot'), it's something used in common language. English teachers and Wyrmslayers will rail against these semantics, which are of arguable importance. Still, a distinction between The Dragon and a drake exists, and should be appreciated. A difference in verbage is one way to do that.
