Dragon Stats: Viking Dragons and Their Eggs



A Note from the Hero

There were dragons when I was a boy.

There were gerat, grim, sky dragons that nested on the cliff tops like gigantic scary birds. Little, brown, scuttly dragons that hunted down the mice and rats in well-organized packs. Preposterously huge Sea Dragons that were twenty times as big as the Big Blue Whale and who killed for the fun of it.

You will have to take my word for it, for the dragons are disappearing so fast they may soon become extinct.

Nobody knows what is happening. Thay are crawling back into the sea from whence they came, leaving not a bone, not a fang, in the earth for the men of the future to remember them by.

So, in order that these amazing creatures should not be forgotten, I will tell this true story from my childhood.

I was not the sort of boy who could train a dragon with a mere lifting of an eyebrow. I was not a natural at the Hreoism business. I had to work at it. This is the story of becoming a Hero the Hard Way.

CHAPTER 1
First Catch Your Dragon

Take a break and wait for updates, thanks!

Dragon Stats: Viking Dragons and Their Eggs


The Common or Garden and The Basic Brown


The Common or Garden and The Basic Brown are so similar that they can be dealt with together. These are the most familiar breeds -- the ones we instantly think of when we say "dragons." They are poor hunters, but they are easy to train. These dragons are the best kind for family pets, although, as with a lion or a tiger, they should never be left unsupervised with very young children.

The Gronckle is the plug-ugly of the dragon world. But what it lacks in looks, it makes up for on the battlefield. They can be slow and, dare I say it, stupid~ and sometimes they get so fat that they are unable to take off. They are also prone to dragon acne.
