Lochwyrms can grow to unfathomable sizes and live for uncountable years, but they all start as tiny hatchlings with curious eyes and an urge to explore. Traversing the land can be hard for them, and with rivers and streams replaced by roads, or filled with nets, or dammed altogether, the wyrms cannot roam as they once did.
The babies are friendly and playful and enjoy company when they find it. If you should find a lone young lochwyrm in the woods, offer it a ride to the nearest water source, and share with it a little chatter. Some may swim off on their own, and others may choose to wander with you.
