dreams of dragons

once upon a time, there was a need for guardians.

So someone conjured up a dragon.  Several dragons.  To protect temples and important people and important treasures. . . .  (from lizards or from humans or from thin air -- hardly matters)

One day one or more started to get jealous and possessive.  I don't knwo whether it was first a princess, or first gold or other treasure, but that's where things started to go to pot.

This is a corrupt and decadent age. . . all the dragons have succumbed here and there. . .O

One day I may even write a story in this setting.
