The flames of dragons give rise to an incomparable smell of burnt flesh, burnt from the inside to the armor. Whether human, elf or dwarf-burned alive during the attack of dragons smell the same. There's no escaping them. They look down on everyone and turn everything to ashes. If you managed to escape and survived, you did not notice-consider you lucky. In Mithril you or in steel armor - you burn the same, baked like meat in foil. Taming dragons is not an easy task. A great army must be raised to defeat them.

Many witnesses were reporting headless horsemen riding in the fields and the mountains. The guards were unable to catch them and only the cavalry could eliminate them, one at a time...
Besides, war was raging at the borders...
Many workers and peasants were frightened to loose what they had built, or even their lives, and for the most religious, their souls...

Upper Management (484) calls for an emergency board meeting:

The insurance department just received an anonymous invoice. The reference said: "The deed is done. 100k silver [SILV] to be paid in 3 months". Attached is some evidence of the incident. Moulder (2877) has checked with his sources and confirmed. Ruri (473) has been assassinated. The claim is valid, the bounty we offered 2 and a half years ago did not have an expiration date and it was open to anyone.

Well, the circle of life and necromancy is complete. They paid the price and now we shall have to pay ours. Let it be known we pay our invoices when they are due.

Someone please contact Harvey Kinkle (3509) and tell them the good news. Maybe now they can stop fooling around with such dangerous schemes, we have heard they have actually been close to summoning a likeness of the late Sabrina (610). It would have been...ugh... a lich [LICH].

The lizard is the beast that the famous Pemark Deserts are known for. On the one hand, they are cold-blooded, and therefore are unlikely allowing themselves rash acts. On the other, they are nimble, and in case of danger they are looking for a way to go under the stones. And in the end, they know how to throw their tail, deceiving the enemy.
All these skills are very necessary to survive in the Pemark Deserts. Suddenly, we found ourselves behaving like them, trying to survive in the World.
