Dragons, the legendary creatures of lore, of myth, mystery, challenge and brilliance. These majestic beasts looks like a cross between a lizard and a snake, with wings so large it can lift it’s enormous girth off of the land to rule the skies. The gasses in it’s gullet igniting to produce streams of billowing fires to conquer the masses and leave them quivering in their own lairs. Will a fierce, brave and slightly insane knight come to your rescue and attempt to slay your dragon? Does your dragon try to slay everything and burn down entire townships? Or has your dragon been raised from infancy to rule the land with you​? If you raise you dragon will you ride it? Our dragon is a great collector of diamonds, he hordes them, loves the shine and sparkle, his hide has become embedded with them as our shawl will be. Our hooded cape will be protection against his wrath as we steal about in the dark searching his lair for the diamonds we need.
