Last week’s image was so peaceful and green. By stark contrast, this valley is completely barren. Nothing grows here…except apparently dragons. You can see them emerging from what seems to be a cold mist. The smell of damp stone, mud, and foul water greets my nose, along with smoke and scorched earth.
Is this narrow place the dragons’ safe haven from would-be hunters, where they have the advantage of a clear line of sight? There doesn’t seem to be anywhere to hide. Perhaps it is only a nesting area for young dragons. They remain here until they are old enough to fly off and settle in distant regions, seeking treasure to hoard.
What is on the other side of the mountains framing our view? More of the same? Burnt countryside? Or green slopes and fields, tended by a few brave souls who dare to live so close to danger? If the creatures are a danger at all. (Your world, your rules.)
Whether these dragons are despised or revered, there is sure to be plenty of lore surrounding this rocky valley. What rumors have you heard in your travels? We’re all waiting expectantly to hear a good tale…
