The Stone Dead and the Living Mythology

This drawing above is of a temple guarded by a stone dragon. The entire monument was carved out of granite and it leads to an expansive cave filled with ancient scrolls and sacred artifacts.

Strictly speaking this next picture isn't really of dragons. These are merely six limbed creatures called gadroons. They don’t breath fire and full grown these animals are no more than eighteen inches long. Here we see a group hatchlings get their first lesson in flight.
