T is for TROGDOR!!

T is for TROGDOR!!

If you don't know who Trogdor is (and to that I say "what?") then check out all his majesty here.
and for more background, here,

Trogdor is dragon (or was he a dragon man? or maybe just a dragon) created by Strong Bad over at Homestar Runner (it's the "Dot Com!") while showing how to draw a dragon.   Since that time Trogdor has invaded video games such as Guitar Hero,  Super Smash Brothers and Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.

Trogdor has even made his way back into D&D with this custom made Trogdor Mini.

The natural thing to do then, given Trogdor's ode to 80's metal and 8-bit gaming, would be some OSR-inspired stats for him.
The trouble though, how would you do it?  Trogdor is fire breathing, wing-a-ling dragon, with a huge beefy arm coming out of the back of his neck, but how powerful should he be?

Any stats would be viewed as too weak to the fans and too strong to anyone not familiar with the character.

So here is my suggestion.  Take a wyvern, give it a breath attack similar to a red dragon and then put an ogre's arm on his back.  While we have only seen Trogdor "burninate" I suppose he could punch things too.  Also Trogdor can use his breath weapon as much as he wants.  So maybe make the damage a bit less than a Red Dragon.  Plus you need to be running a certain kind of game to allow Trogdor in.  I could see a serious game mash-up of LL and Mutant Future where Trogdor would work now that I think about it.

Ah what the hell.
