Sketch Of Dragon

The dragon experienced the most changes of all the Beast’s we’ve created. It truly is our creation. We had to come up with some clever ways for our Dragon, to hunt effectively in the forest. Which changed its look quite drastically. Flight was of the utmost importance otherwise it would just be a giant lizard on the ground.

Figuring out the mechanics of a biological creature breathing fire was another hurdle we had to over come. However it was awesome to find that naturally there were things set in place that we could use make this happen! The Dragon truly is a composite animal of our creation, we had such latitude to pick and choose what we needed from different animals. It’s like a cook having access to every ingredient around the world. It was an absolute blast having this much leeway!

Dragon After Feeding

Dragon After Feeding

The primeval forest was… uncomfortable. With all the rainfall, it was wet as hell. Unprepared and ill equipped, my feet were wet and freezing cold! Anyways whining aside, it was awesome seeing some bison, even brief encounters with some wild boars! There were definitely a lot of things to eat in here for our Dragon.

The only problem is with all the trees and branches all over the place. How can this thing fly? There’s no room to flap its wings. At least not without alerting every animal in the surrounding area. But it’s not a Dragon unless it can fly, however flight may be costly in the forest, and this Dragon would starve to death. Unless it can adapt and fly in another way….

The Polish Dragon

Dragon First Impressions

Dragon First Impressions

Poland was fantastic, I loved Krakow! I had no idea that the dragon was so infused in their culture. You could see it in a lot of the architecture especially at the Cathedral including bones hung on some big chains by the entrance. Legends say that if the bones were to fall, so would Poland. Looking at the bones though, I could see how the skull could be mistaken as a dragon skull. The shape of it was freaking perfect for a dragon. We’re on track to build this beast! However the weather had other plans.

We were in Poland as it was experiencing some extremely heavy rainfall. The water level in Krakow was freaky high, looking at the river was insane. The southern part of Poland was experiencing flooding, not too far from where we were. So as we continued on our investigation, a certain uneasiness filled our team. During a 10 hr drive from Bielystock to Krakow we drove right in the middle of a thunderstorm, and we even saw a farm on fire after being stuck by lightning! Oh did I mention that hail started to fall the size of golf balls? I was getting the feeling all signs were telling us to stop our trek.

Checking out the snakes in Krakow, was….freaky. The venom from the snakes was insanely lethal. If that didn’t kill you, the anti-venom had other plans for your body. Climbing up a lions cage…ok. Swim with the sharks with blood drenched feet. Sure. Handle a venomous snake. Hell no!!
