4898 - In Flight

When dragon-riders travel between planets, they cross a very thin envelope of atmosphere, and they must wear a complete suit of Nyzium Armor to survive the trip (much like jet pilots of today have to wear oxygen masks and helmets to survive at such high altitudes). In addition, before making such a journey, each warrior boils a Nyzium crystal and drinks it for the mystical properties and strength it provides the human body.
