    The problem I'm having with my own players. By RAW it's only 10k, but its effects are much too nice for such a little price.

    Precisely. It'll also improve my carrying capacity due simply to the multiplicative effects of size increases.

    Aw, okay on the tail. I'm a bit confused on the rest of what you said - natural weapons don't provoke, but you're willing to make a tail one of the weapons that don't provoke?

    Hm, I could have swore quadrupeds get a bonus on trip attempts made, not just defended against.

    While RAW, how do you trip a dragon with his own tail? Especially if he's hovering?

    No, but it'd do tail slap damage.

    Of course. I doubt there are many places in Sigil, save the sky itself, that could fit one.
