Summary: Threadscore and Thread Fall injuries, what it is like, the nasty things it can do! And how to treat it effectively.
Article: Thread, and the treatment of Threadscore and other thread related injuries make it clear that the Dragonriders nemesis is a VERY nasty thing. Now, the first thing to say is that Dragonriders WILL get scored and so will the dragons at some point in their fighting lives. With odds of one in three fatality rate, the odds are much higher for injuries. Scores, strains, burns - flying fall is a dangerous business. But this is article principally about Threadscore and what it can do, how it does it and how it can be combated by the riders and by the Healers.
