It's a bit of a running joke here how much I like dragons. Has it got a dragon in it? Give it to Bertie. And it's true, I do like them! I like them a lot. If I could have my way, dragons would be in everything. It's because of what they represent to me - they represent adventure. They are my memories of being whisked away as a kid by The Hobbit, or by A Wizard of Earthsea. Ah! What memories. And they are me playing countless role-playing games after that. Dragons are role-playing games, as far as I'm concerned. And I can't believe it's taken me this long to do a Five of the Best about them.
