|No, I didn't draw this. I'm busy. - Rose|
Wyverns have more in common with geese than they do with true Dragons. They are generally bestial and lack speech and refinement. They can be useful in warfare, however, assuming you can keep them from eating your infantry.
Wyrm is an Anglo-Saxon word which properly refers to any ancient true Dragon. In the eastern regions of Earth, the type of Dragon pictured has been referred to as a 'Lung', 'Ryu', 'Naga', and 'Tatsu', among other names. They are true Dragons, and tend to be somewhat contemplative and scholarly. There are exceptions, of course...
Well, sort of... Fine, I picked it because the scale color was the closest I could find.
One more detail: if you are unsure if your new neighbor is a pathetic wyvern or a noble true Dragon, take a few moments and look around the lair mouth for 'fewmets'; that is, er, droppings. A true Dragon does not defile his or her home by defecating around it; a wyvern will. In short, if you see poop, shoot to kill. If not, bring a large meal, some tribute items, and your best manners to request a parlay. The lives you save could be your entire village's.
Farewell for now, children. The donation chest is on the left as you leave.
