    Player: hi
    The First Dragon: Hello, my sparring buddy. We should have another fight sometimes. I think you may have earned a little reward.
    Player: reward
    The First Dragon: Have a look at the chests over there. Feel free to take the things you find within. You know, gold, gems and the like. There's also a garment I'm storing here for a while. As it doesn't fit me I have no need for it. ...
    The First Dragon: But it might be a nice outfit for a little human. You also can take the porcelain mask and the feathers. There's a wizard named Muriel in Thais who reportedly embellishes outfits with stuff like this.
    Player: fight
    The First Dragon: Even in retirement I sometimes succumb to the temptation of sweet battle. Fighting was so different back in the old times. You can read about it in my memoirs. There should be a copy lying here somewhere.
    Player: retirement
    The First Dragon: When you are young, you are much more tolerant towards the burden of life. At a certain age even a dragon will start to think about if things will go on forever. ...
    The First Dragon: Eventually there comes a time when you decide all the hassle isn't worth it anymore and you decide to concentrate on the finer things life has to offer.
    Player: times
    The First Dragon: Times have changed <sigh>. In the past dragons were feared and respected. Only the demons rivalled our notoriety.
    Player: memoirs
    The First Dragon: I dictated my memoirs to a human servant. I like the idea to share my thoughts and memories with humanity with the help of a book. ...
    The First Dragon: You are my greatest fans after all. ...
    The First Dragon: If it becomes popular, I might consider an orcish translation or even one in bonelord language. ...
    The First Dragon: By the way, it's a funny story how I learnt the bonelord language. However, I saved it for a possible part two of my memoirs.
    Player: hassle
    The First Dragon: I really enjoy a good fight now and then. ...
    The First Dragon: A real pain, however, is the constant annoyance caused by tedious fights against adventurers with more healing pots than brain.
    Player: demons
    The First Dragon: Those upstarts! I wonder why would anyone care about them. They lack our style. For them it is all about brute force and showing-off.
    Player: style
    The First Dragon: Breathing fire is an art! Instead of setting everything on fire, you exhale a cone of fire to give a worthy opponent a chance to avoid it.
    Player: worthy
    The First Dragon: To be honest, the first dragon hunters weren't worthy. ...
    The First Dragon: They used weaknesses to their advantage. It took some time before a dragon could be killed in a fair fight.
    Player: weaknesses
    The First Dragon: The first awoken dragons were quite disoriented when leaving the mists and re-entering reality. ...
    The First Dragon: This led to certain vulnerabilities. However, the dragons overcame such shortcomings quickly and soon took their rightful place in the food chain, so to say.
    Player: mists
    The First Dragon: There was a time before the gods cast the mists of healing over the world. At that time the dragons ruled and burnt the world. ...
    The First Dragon: In hindsight I'm not too proud of this. This was some kind of juvenile bullying.
    Player: world
    The First Dragon: The world has changed so much; I'm beginning to feel really old. People have changed, the face of the world has changed, even the laws of nature are no longer the same. ...
    The First Dragon: I think it is the greatest advantage of you humans to be more flexible and adaptable.
    Player: humans
    The First Dragon: Your lives are so short and meaningless and yet you are here! And as a race you even have your own history and remember things with the help of books, which amazes me.
    Player: books
    The First Dragon: Your books are an amazing thing. Draconic glyphs are so different. ...
    The First Dragon: They are not only more complicated but also more specific. A single word which always keeps the same meaning is astonishingly effective in its primitive way. ...
    The First Dragon: It helps you to conserve thoughts, stories and history and to share them with others - a concept I really appreciate. ...
    The First Dragon: Books are a wonderful invention. If you are ever tired of your heroic exploits, take the time to read one.
    Player: concept
    The First Dragon: I like the idea of books so much that I acquired a human servant to record my memoirs. You find a copy somewhere in my lair.
    Player: invention
    The First Dragon: Being powerful creatures themselves, dragons had no need for inventions. ...
    The First Dragon: However, now that times have changed and the pressure increases, even my kin might slowly start to change in order to adapt.
    Player: adapt
    The First Dragon: Well, surely some of my kin might whine and complain as they always do. ...
    The First Dragon: You have no idea how backwards thinking some dragons can be. A few are even still idealising the times before the mists.
    Player: mists
    The First Dragon: There was a time before the gods cast the mists of healing over the world. At that time the dragons ruled and burnt the world. ...
    The First Dragon: In hindsight I'm not too proud of this. This was some kind of juvenile bullying.
    Player: world
    The First Dragon: The world has changed so much; I'm beginning to feel really old. People have changed, the face of the world has changed, even the laws of nature are no longer the same. ...
    The First Dragon: I think it is the greatest advantage of you humans to be more flexible and adaptable.
    Player: finer
    The First Dragon: The definition of finer things is different for a dragon than for a human. ...
    The First Dragon: A young dragon appreciates diving into a lava pool, while an old dragon just can't stand to get rid of the lava afterwards and prefers bathing in boiling water.
    Player: lava
    The First Dragon: Lava is only fun as long as it doesn't harden - then it turns into an annoyance.
    Player: hassle
    The First Dragon: I really enjoy a good fight now and then. ...
    The First Dragon: A real pain, however, is the constant annoyance caused by tedious fights against adventurers with more healing pots than brain.
    Player: demons
    The First Dragon: Those upstarts! I wonder why would anyone care about them. They lack our style. For them it is all about brute force and showing-off.
