The Town of Woodwail Has a Dragon Problem
It’s not an obvious problem; dragons don’t swoop out of the sky and prey upon caravans and livestock. This problem is far more insidious. Decades ago, the dragon, Chardinarth took up residence in a forgotten temple outside the frontier town of Woodwail. Not content to simply sit and bide its time, it began extorting money from the local Duke. Now, its demands have increased.
Duke Arret Warda oversees the town of Woodwail for the Regent. A fair but grim man who carries this burden heavily, he knows he, and his father before him, have been party to activity many might consider treasonous; raiding the coffers to enrich a dragon’s hoard. The dragon has grown greedier. Warda knows he must do something to rid the area of this monster. He needs dragon slayers!
