Notes//

•BE POLITE AND RESPECTFUL

•Having swords or weapons or jewelry handy when trying to befriend a dragon may come in handy. They love shiny things and adore human weaponry. I think it fascinates them.

•Dragons are extraordinarily old and wise and powerful. Befriending one opens you to a world of possibilities. Never try to trick a dragon. Never lie to a dragon. Be kind. It is a companionship. They will only work with you and respect you if they get something in return. Even if it’s just an offering of energy.

(Species of dragons inspired by the Dragonology Handbook which I’ve actually found to be a great source for working with dragons despite it being a ‘children’s book’, and by the ‘Mythical creatures bible’ by Brenda Rosen. Some of these species such as the indigenous ones, are of closed cultures and are off limits to non-natives)
