A Study of Dragons
By Ives Benton Eaton
Given that dragons may have been magically constructed in the distant past for the titanic wars whose histories are now but dim echoes, it only makes sense that they would be made as terrible as possible. Such creatures would naturally be made to regard humans as food, for how else could such huge beasts be kept fed in the field but on the bodies of foes?
—Felciti Faranal, loremaster, “A Study of Dragons”
It was the last dawn she’d

Another Fine Mess
By Skitten and Ives Benton Eaton
Hessana wished nature wasn’t so messy.
She had been traveling for weeks from the Heartwood, the mystical center of the Deepwold, now far to the northeast. She liked it there; it would be a rare sierfāen who did not. She certainly liked it better than where she was now.
She had resented being sent on this mission. She didn’t see why she had to be the one to leave the Heartwood. There, nature was—well, orderly. The creatures wer

Duel of Drakes
By Ives Benton Eaton
Yake pursed his lips, holding in the first reply that came to his mind. Instead, he nodded politely. “You have done us a great service.”
“Perhapsss. And perhapsss not. Consider this: Losing a game is one thing; you can be eaten knowing that you have done your best. But losing a game when you know that there is a solution that you have not found is intolerable, because it suggests that even your best was not good enough. This might be a more e

The Sixth Path
By Ives Benton Eaton
I run my prey to exhaustion whenever I can. Their meat is so much more tender then; their fear and despair the most delightful of seasonings.
—Gratelankularugovistafiskor, dragon of the Path of the Tooth
Being hunted by a dragon can be stressful.
Particularly when one has stolen from that dragon. Nothing quite angers a dragon so much as that.
Zōēā, a wild elf of the Shāhūnā (known to humans as the Boa Tribe), and Langōval, a sylvan elf of the nort

The Dragon
By Ives Benton Eaton
Princesses? Dragons don’t care about princesses, except when they’re hungry. But then dragons are usually hungry. You’re all meat to a dragon. Adventurers? You know how the Draconic word for “adventurers” translates? It means “food-that-delivers-itself”.
—Iversin Gretz, loremaster and adjunct librarian the Magna Bibliotheca at Spellkeep
Aragandaferithondacanathee was as much of the creature’s name as any other

Homecoming
By Ives Benton Eaton
You wish to explore the world? Why just one? A world lives in every tree in the forest.
—Chesirā, veldami of the Shāhūnā
The Shāhūnā village was hidden up in the canopy of the rain forest, a web of vines and woven branches and hanging bags for storage and platforms with braced and waxed leather rain flies to keep them dry. They used knotted ropes and hoists to reach their homes, both of which were pulled up when not in use to keep a foe from seeing th

Talk to the Animals
By Ives Benton Eaton
“Here, leezard, leezard, leezard…”
—Gidget the chihuahua, voiced by Carlos Alazraqui
“Come on, Būshān. Try again.”
Būshān was Zōēā’s young emerald green python, now just over ten feet long. This would normally not be a good pet for a young adult human or even a young adult wild elf, such as Zōēā was, but Būshān was not simply a pet—she was the animal companion of a veldami, a green-witch, a wi

Food Chained
By Ives Benton Eaton
(Author’s note: Ladahūnā, the language of elves in this world—called “Āen” by them—uses separate letters for long and short vowels. To aid pronunciation in Ladahūnā words translated to English, macrons have been placed above long vowels, so “Zōēā” is pronounced “ZOH-ee-yay”. The “th” digraph has a cedilla mark below the “t” if it is a “voiced th”, as in the word &ld

For the Dungeons and Dragons® players who have been following my stories of Āen, here is the official write-up of the spell that makes them possible. It is a version 3.5 spell, as that is the version my gaming group still uses. (We didn’t like version 4 and didn’t see the point of spending hundreds of dollars to upgrade everything, and never got around to checking out version 5.) Therefore, references to the Monster Manual in the text are to the version 3.5 edition.

Hey, Mars will be at its closest point to Earth on July 27th! You have time to plan that jump for the *easiest* possible point! That makes it almost *certain* to happen! :D

I love your creative comments, and please let me know if you ever develop a weird TV show for Netflix or something. :P

*A large, demonic-dragonic hybrid, with the body of a human, slowly lands in front of you, with large, demonic dragon wings protruding from the hybrid's back, with large horns, looking demon and dragon in appearance, with a long, demonically-spaded dragon tail, looking very sharp at the end... the hybrid, a rather young, yet very powerful and very, VERY busty, female-looking human, her eyes glowing an unnatural, radioactive purple color, her horns and hands crackling with unholy energy of the same color as her eyes... the female hybrid then smiled and put a clawed hand under your chin, having you look up, before she said, her voice female, echoing with a demonic tone, "Your welcome, dearie.~ Although... next time we meet, shall we have some fun of our own?~", flicking her tongue out, revealing it to be forked and long, snake-like in appearance, her eyes becoming slitted for but a moment, before going back to their original state...*
