It had been a long time since there had been a gathering of dragons this large, but inevitably the time had come again, and many eager dragons had gathered together with all the activity of a landslide, for what would no doubt be a memorable trip.

The dark, beautifully painted tunnel whispered to the hatchlings, called to them. They clutched at each other, tails and wings tight against their bodies. Some lowered their bodies into a squat fighting stance, ready to defend their fellows. Earthshaker was famously a kindly, or at least neutral deity, but there were other things, worse things, that hid in the veins and bones of the dying god.

Many Earth clans stayed out of those mysterious, smaller tunnels that ran too small for modern dragons to fit, or the caverns too massive and imposing for anybody to worry about anything but the ever-present danger of bad air, even if it had been originally pumped out in the First Age.

There is a reason so many darkly primitive sayings have survived in Earth where more erudite expressions have triumphed in other Flights.

Trust, but keep an eye open.
There are worse things than monsters.
When the mountain comes down.


The darkness below them shifted, as though the hallway itself was moving to form something anew within and repel it without. The ground pitched and turned--Earthshaker’s slumber, they called it. The hatchlings dug their claws into the ancient stones, more afraid of whatever lay in the dark than a collapse.


Golden eyes, like a Spiral’s but dangerously blank, glittered up at them.

Sswizzipzip--tap...

No, not a Spiral, something worse, limping, its claws scraping along the stone like a thing not quite dead. Half-lit, fans rose up along its...head?
Sswizzipzip--!

The creature that came forth was but a delicate Death’s-Head stag, the largest and oldest any of the hatchlings had ever seen. While certainly light, it was as large as they were--larger! Extending its secondary proboscis from between its split upper lip, it lapped at the offerings, drinking a bit of sweet fruit juices to get back its strength.

The Stag limped its way out from the gloom and emerged among the adult dragons. They shuffled away from it warily, giving it space and muttering between themselves the old stories about it being a ‘harbinger of misfortune’, but the Death’s-Head Stag paid them no mind, as peculiar as it was, and soon continued on until it was gone from their sights. The dragons breathed a sigh of relief.

The hatchlings too, returned to the task of preparing their offering. Their earlier fears had been forgotten, at least until one of them dropped a pebble and in the soundless aftermath of the clatter, the ground began to rumble and heave once more. Not taking any more chances, the hatchlings ran back to the other dragons, diving under their legs for protection. Their sudden appearance was met with confusion which soon turned to fear as an unearthly roar shook the air, and a monster dragged its way to the mouth of the tunnel from which the hatchlings had just come.

The monster was huge, as big as any Imperial, with rolling, dead eyes and a gaping maw that was filled with razor sharp teeth. Bits of dried skin hung loose from its skeletal frame and any traces of hair and fur were filthy and knotted, worn away by age and decay. It roared again, and the sound was too much for the delicate structure of the cavern; the stones of the roof began to crack.
