Default Quick question: Zmey

So I was just wondering: Are the Bogarus national summon and the EDM summon the same Zmey? or is the EDM version scaled up on the Bogarus one?

Cheers folks.

They are different summons, both based on a creature from a Russian myth. Ironically, EDM says that these big Zmey "have lent their name to the lesser drakes of Rus", while it's clearly vice versa.

I see. Are the EDM ones actually smaller then? they are like 3 times the price, one level of conjuration higher and more fire skillz to summon, I'd assume they would be bigger...

do they both do the die = loose a head thing?

I think that's vice versa in the sense that the larger EDM version was based on the weaker Bogarus ones.

Yes. Vice versa in the sense that Zmey is a Russian word.

Well in real life EDM's Zmey is named after the other, but in the gameworld it's the other way round. And flavour text describes the gameworld.

Sure.

But Zmey of Rus has a Russian name, which is fitting. International Zmey having a Russian name is not so fitting. And it's not some unique proper name either, it's just a normal word.
Not that it's of any importance, of course.

Actually I found the zmey while researching mythological creatures, and was then very annoyed to discover it was already in the game as a Bogarus national summon! The EDM zmey is based directly on the mythology and not on the Bogarus summon.

The EDM version is much larger and more powerful.
