One Shots: Dragons don’t like to be in the dark


Just because dragons are big and scaly and can nuke cities from orbit doesn’t mean that they lack insecurities. In fact, it’s a little-known fact that drakes are quite afraid of the dark. If you’re going to put one in a cave, for example, it’s absolutely necessary to set it up with glowing crystals, giant torches, or — barring those — twinkly fairy lights.

Finally, trust me when I say that you don’t ever want to get on the wrong side of Sixuality in Neverwinter. Things get very… stabby if that happens.

“What hit me?” asks the boss.

“Daggers,” comes the reply. “The answer is always daggers.”
