Here's my entry:

Image

Backgroundstory:
After a successful campaign, Bjorn and his best friend Snorri got home, as rich men. They decided to organizing a big feast. When they prepared everything, they invited all people in their village. It was a great feast. Free beer for all! xD
They drunk, talked, laught, drunk and drunk even more...
until their gorge were rising.
Bjorn had to puke, so he went behind a house.
Suddenly he heard a noise, which got louder and then quiter, and then louder again... something was out there, but he didn't know what.
He trembled with fear.
And suddenly, he saw the beast. A huge fire-breathing bat. He stumbled back to his friends, as good as he could (he was VERY shocked) and told his friends everything. They first wanted to belive him, but Bjorn could see fear in all their eyes. His friends told it to their friends, but they exaggerate and so on. At the end, everyone talked about huge fire-breathing DRAGONS!
But was this bat real? No Bjorn was drunk and just imagined it. It was nothing more than a black bird and the fire were some beautiful polar lights ;)

(Sorry if there are mistakes, I'm Swiss)

Entry: Espionage Gone Wrong

The Lion Kingdom grows suspicious of their neighbors, the Dwarves. The latest espionage report justifies it.

It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and a lot of snow melted. Olaf and 3 of his comrades in arms crossed a small pass. Suddenly, the sun cowered behind dark clouds. It began to snow...
They went in a small cave, where it was dry and warm. They went deeper and deeper in there. Olaf had a bad feeling about this, but as soon as they found a skeleton, he tried to convince the other soldiers. He didn't succeed.
So he went back and waited at the opening of the cave.
10 Minutes later, he heard a cry, but it didn't seem scary, it more sounded like a crow. His friends came back...

... with a lot of GOLD. They found the forgotten treasure of the famous king Harald. Olafs comrades in arms didn't wanted to share the treasure with him. So there was only one way...


Kill them!

Image

Olaf was the strongest of them and he killed all 3 fellows. Of course he had no pity with them, cause gold is even more important than friends for a viking.
But now he had a problem: He wanted to get home to his wife and his 9 children, but how should he explain that his comrades in arms are dead? He began to deliberate a story. A wild animal killed them, maybe a wolf, or rather a bear...
No, that wouldn't work. They were too strong. It had to be something larger, something more dangerous, something more destructive! But he didn't know any kind of animal who could be like that, so he had to figure out a fabulous one...

When he got home, he told to the people in his village:
"...and then it came. It was a huge beast, double the high of my house. It had a hard scale armor and with our swords, we couldn't wound it. It attacked us with his giant claws. We didn't know what to do, so we split up and run each in another direction. Buttttt... this beast also had wings, like a bird. And it could breath fire :O. It followed another one, so I could escape and hide away. I'm the only surviving one. (minute's silence) All others are dead! They are DEAD!"

And so it came, that everyone talked about this beast. Some years later they named it "Dragon" and used images of it to scare the enemy in the war...

The Creature That Love Created

Image

Many years ago, Mephisto and Anyana met and fell in love. Mephisto was the most powerful wizard in the land, and Anyana was the sorceress to the king. After trying and failing to have a child of their own, one night the food and port led to a decision that would change the lands forever. They decided to create a creature of their own, born from the spells they cast. Using a bat and a snake, their favorite animals, they set out to combine them into an animal that the world would never forget!

Long, long ago man had three natural enemies: Large birds of prey, the big cats of the jungle, and snakes. Eventually they got it in their heads that there might be an even more fearsome creature that had the dangerous features of all three. Through storytelling this creature eventually became known as the dragon. Eventually, fire was discoverd, and the climb to overcoming these beasts began. But the thought always lingered, "If we could harness the power of fire, what's stoping the dragon from doing the same?"

Here's my entry. My first real MOC since my childhood.

Image

Title:An Unexpected Discovery
The story:While working in their masters' goldmines, the pharaos' servants stumble upon the skull of an ancient reptile after a small cave in.
Even though it is a dreadful sight to behold, it is completely harmless.
When the tales of this long dead monster leave the mines, the stories are told over and over again, and exhegarated every time they change storyteller. Hundreds of years later they have changed into the dragon we all know today.

Another entry: An Invasion of the Third Kind

The inherently evil Dragon knights had their attempted sneak invasion of the Lion Kingdom thwarted by an entirely different type of invasion. Coincidence?

There were once two wise and great wizards, one dwelling among the forest and the other residing among the desolate rocky landscape of the great Fire mountain. It just so happened that these two great wizards decided to cross paths one day, and combine their magic to create something greater than either of the wizards could conjure on their own. In those days, the lands were filled with many perils, and many evil things held domain on the surface of the world. In order to combat these threats, the wizards knew they had to create a magnificent and fearsome creature, with the capability to defend the goodness still present among the evil. The wise men summoned all of their energy, and the power of wind and flame combined to create a creature both light as air and hot as flame; the great dragon was created.
Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
