Rumors of dragons have always been around Middle Earth. Some have proved true – like Smaug. Recently though there have been rumors about another dragon, one in the Misty Mountains near the old lands of Enedwaith. Of course these rumours abound with tales of gold and jewels also. Anmorata has decided to go see if these rumours are true, as she has always wished to see a dragon, and if she can just *borrow* a little gold she would not mind 😉
Off she goes on faithful Absinthe, time to find this dragon!
She locates a clan of wild men, the Draig-luth, who worship a dragon totem. This leads her to believe she might just be on the right track here. They are fierce men, but they are no match for this peerless champion.
In the mountains past the homes of the Draig-luth, she finds a cave mouth high on a hillside. She walks inside, and her eyes open in wonder! She cannot resist tossing a few of the gold coins up into the air. Clearly she has found the Lair!
Deeper into the cave, she finds the dragon himself! He is the mighty Draigoch, powerful and dangerous. She makes her way down to a lower level closer to him, and in a moment of foolish bravery – mocks the dragon.
Anmorata’s adventures in the lair of Draigoch end here today. She will be back, but in the company of friends and battle companions. While the dragon is a magnificent creature to behold, he is a danger to these lands and must be driven out or killed. With a band of boon companions, Anmorata will do so! (And she did make it out with a few gold coins in her pockets)

Here is a shot with the helm (I really don’t like helms so I rarely use them myself) that I felt went best with this outfit. The bow I used here happens to have come from the skirmish camp, but I’ve seen the same bow appearance drop from mobs, so no need to use the marks if you don’t wish to.
