    You've left your town and taken on the task of gathering dragon scales to forge a weapon for a Dwarf King. After a night of rough sleep and cold mountain travel, you stand in a cave mere feet from the largest creature you've ever seen in your life.

    You raise your lantern and take a step closer, and suddenly, a voice echos out through the cave. The heat and wind from its mouth feels like it could almost make your furs burst into flames, you're all ready sweating under your hood.

    "Rarely do those who come here get so far without going mad. I do not like visitors human. Explain yourself."

    The huge glowing eyes seem to stare at you, and then your arm as if it can see the armored plates beneath your coat making up the gauntlet that holds your ghostly limb.

    You take a deep breath and pull back your hood as you look at the great dragon. You honestly think he fills up the entire cave from bottom to top, the heat that seems to swell from him is so massive it is hard to not be nervous.

    "I'm here because I need a scale or two of yours.."

    The dragon laughs and seems to stand from its laying position and start to walk in your direction. You slowly back up and this keeps up for a few minutes as if he is backing you out of the cave. Once outside you can see his full form.

    "You wish to craft a weapon no doubt? The dwarfs that have been sent to me were delicious. None actually made it through my aura, but something seems to protect you from it."

    He stares at you. "Show me your arm."

    Its a command, and you don't even have a moment to think, your own arm moves and pulls back the coat showing your gauntlet. The dragon stares for a moment then grins as he steps fully out into the light outside.

    He looks amazing, golden scales that clatter and clank together as if they were made from steel cover him. Finally he looks back down at you. You notice something odd however, he is missing his left wing.

    "We'll see. You intend to kill the Black Mother drake who's brought her brood to these mountains yes?"

    You start to explain yourself, telling him that you personally don't want to kill anyone, but you intend on making the weapon, about halfway through your explanation you see a massive claw like hand reach up and grab you.

    You're lifted to stare into one of his eyes and can't seem to look away. A flood of thoughts and memories explode in your mind and in a moment you feel like your head is throbbing in pain. Rudely he tosses you back to the ground.

    "I see. I see. Unremarkable man doing the remarkable. Luck and strong will have seen you through."

    "I'll make this simple Blacksmith. You want two scales? I'll give them to you right now. On two conditions. That. Or we can Fight for them, and you can die. Or.. you can leave. Make your choice."

    "Tell me what the conditions are and I will do it..."

    The dragon laughs a little and flames seem to leap from his mouth, causing the ice and snow around to begin to melt.

    "First, you must bring me the eye of that Black Bitch who ate my wing. You're lucky that she spurred my advances and got more then a little rough."

    This would mean you might have to convince the king to give you the eye once she is slain... or you might have to come along and help him.

    "The other condition is much more complex... Before your life ends, you must solve my missing wing problem. She's consumed the wing and melted what was left with her wretched spit, no healing magic will make it work. But your arm, I understand was an accident... but you seem to be a smart human. You will -make- me a new wing. It can take years. It can take your whole life, your span is but a drop in the water compared to mine."

    "If you fail either of these tasks however... I will find your little town, and I will torture everyone to death, even if I have to crawl on my stomach all the way there. Deal?"

    You stand up and the dragon laughs a little as you open your mouth to speak.

    "Yes YES human. I know who you are. You don't have to say it every time you take a request from someone."

    He seems to know what you are going to say before you say it, but you make sure he knows you agree anyhow. Making the wing that can still fly, and yet be strong enough to hold up his massive form covered in steel is something you cannot even wrap your mind around yet.

    He reaches down and tears a scale from his body with a loud angry growl, doing it once more after. Both of the scales feel like they weigh far more then they should, whispering that they are similar to "gold" only in color. They are both about the size of a full plate chest cover.

    You place them in your backpack. They will likely slow you down quite a bit, and if the Silver scales weigh as much... the long trek back will be rough.

    He waves a hand and your legs begin to walk away from him before without you commanding them to. No wonder scales are so rare, approaching a creature of this power is crazy. Its hard to think you will do it again.

    I don't think it's worth risking these scales by dropping them off somewhere. We need to keep our eyes on them.

    No, dragons are rare outside of the Mountains of the world, This area is one of the few where multiple kinds still linger together. Black Dragons are the most common, world wide, but still rare to come across.

    When you think of his weight, it's hard to understand, you don't really get a number, but you -feel- once you make the wing, you will know when it will be strong enough to help him fly again. It seems he's engraved some general gut feelings into your mind to help you construct the wing.

    If so, we should meet with him regularly to collect his golden scales, and use them to fashion him a new wing.

    You picture yourself sledding around these twisting paths with the gold scales and a sled and laugh a little.

    These paths are barely big enough for just yourself at times, they are twisting and uneven. Any type of travel aside from rope, feet, and perhaps a flying creature is asking to die a messy, falling death.

    You assume that if scales grow back, it would take more then your life time for them to do so. You also doubt from what you saw that they shed them, as painful as it looked when he tore the scales off.

    You move on to the next dragon, your pack is tied tightly to your shoulders as you think of what it would be like to lose these precious scales.

    From all that you have heard of their worth, this scales are the kind of things that forge weapons that change nations and forge legends.

    Night is close to falling and the load you bear is tiresome, after your bad night of sleep and all of the climbing and walking, it seems like sleep would be a good option. You are however only an hour or two's walk from the Silver Dragon's cave. Should you press on or set up camp to speak to him well rested?

    It has been almost 2 and a half days so far. Sleeping will make it 3.
    It is the combination of the two steel's that make it so mythic-ly strong. One scale without the other would still make something very awesome and note-worthy, but if you want to make him something out of true "Dragon Steel" and something for yourself of the same quality you will need two from each dragon.

    You set up camp and make sure to almost the point of paranoia that your backpack is tied on tightly. You also sleep with your back propped up against the rocks to make sure no sneaky fingers find their way into your pack, not that you think anyone is crazy enough aside from you to be out on these death-trap pathways that only lead to unfriendly dragons.

    You sleep great, and when you wake up, the sun is out and bright in the sky. It's warmth on your face makes you feel great. You eat and then take down your camp, setting yourself back up for the walk to the cavern. Your pack is heavy, but there is a spring in your step despite it all.

    You hope this dragon is less serious and less invasive into your mind. After an hour and a half you're there, and looking at the mouth of a cave that looks... much much less inviting then the last one.

    Skeletons litter the entrance, some are what appears to be smaller dragons with charred black bones that make you think of what your arm looked like when the lich was finished with it.

    The rest are Dwarf skeletons fried inside of their armor.

    You whisper to yourself as you remark on what must of been the last moments of the other dwarfs. You take a deep breath and move into the cave. The light is shining inside the cave and makes it easy to see without lighting your lantern.

    As soon as you are a step or two inside a massive shining shape steps out into the open, he's a little smaller then the last dragon, but he's no less frightening. His mouth crackles with lightning that seems to leap from tooth to tooth and make his whole mouth glow blue.

    He sets his eyes on you for a moment, and he seems to "grin" at you for lack of a better word. His mouth stops glowing and calmly he lays down with a smug look on his face as if he is very entertained by your presence.

    If he was a human you'd bust him in the mouth, the look he's giving you and the way he acts like you are simply a bug flying around makes your stomach burn with anger.

    All of these statements and questions only seem to make him lose even more interest. His eyes half closed as if he's asleep, but he continues to watch you. When you ask

    "What did they do to annoy you?" Pointing at the dwarfs. He chuckles, but at least speaks.

    "They tried to take a scale without permission. Just because I was asleep does not mean I can't feel an attempt to tear my own flesh off." He says no more after that however.

    After you have drunk quite a bit he reaches forward with a clawed hand and takes the bottle between two fingers and then tosses it into his maw. He chews the glass that seems to do nothing to the inside of his wicked maw.

    "That is none of your concern human." He turns slowly and his tail -wooshes- over your head. Loud sounds echo from whatever he is messing with that was once behind him. He turns around and his claws, both filled with gold and jewels dumps them in front of you before once more laying down.

    "Just take it and leave. All the others who've been brave enough to speak to me instead of try to play thief have taken this and mucked off. The king won't pay you half as much for my scales. Go start a kingdom of your own."

    You get a strong feeling this is a test. Or something, his grin is no longer just smug, it is ...something wicked.

    You put on a serious face and stare at him over the pile of gold. His face seems to change to mock yours, or he's unhappy with the fact you seem unswayed by it. You inform him that you're not here for treasure, that you've sought him out to create something amazing.

    You pour out your pack onto the ground, he looks at the two golden scales and nods as if impressed. He Brushes everything aside but the five potions you carry.

    Slowly he begins to poke them with a mighty claw, causing each one to pop and shatter as he crushes them until there is only one left. He points at it.

    "Every Adventurer carries these, but they are only fun when there is only one."

    Before you can protest, move or even think that same claw that popped the potions spears all the way through your right leg, making you let out a scream in pain. That makes him grin in earnest. He pulls it out and blood begins to pour from the would. It is a lot of blood, you could pass out before long, but the potion could heal it, but it would take the whole potion poured on the wound.

    You start to reach for it as a reflex, but before you can you feel his claw rake across your face. It's expertly placed as if he has played this game before. The cut on your face is superficial, but deep enough to leave a bad scar. It cuts across your nose, your eyebrow and deeply through your lip, you won't be nearly as lucky with the ladies if you don't fix it with the potion.

He lets you have it the 2nd time you reach it, you pour the potion on your leg and watch as the bone, flesh and gore re-knits. The pain lingers and your face continues to bleed.

    Is a hammer really worth the life of another? Aye, WE may have a deathwish, but what right do we have to extend that to others for the sake of an heirloom gifted to us by a drunken father? The dwarves have other hammers to use. Aye, they may not be Pa's hammer, and we may be throwing away our starting legacy, but how much more awesome will that make us? Besides, he never said who would die. It could be anyone, even those who we have yet to meet. potential friends, someone who will probably become very close.
    Heavy choice, OP. I both love you and hate you for it.

    There's also the option of forfeiting this game - you have one silver scale and that's enough for one portion of Dragonsteel.

    He smirks and starts to bring his hand down on the hammer then pauses raising an eyebrow.

    "Wait.-What did you call it?"

    You explain to him how your father named it and how you've always kept up the tongue in cheek method of its silly name. He seems to laugh at this quite a bit.

    "That amuses me. I'll go light on you then." He brings his claw down and smashes the hammer to bits, grinding, but not as much as he would, leaving it chunks of steel and black dust.

    here, agreeing with

    As an additional thought, going down the mountains with 4 scales and no hammer might be more difficult than first expected. Not to say we can't, but maybe we should have our own game with him after to get flown (I guess not on its back, we need to get back, not make an even larger entrance). Other ways back are of course worth considering as well. We can't just sled down on the scales, can we?

    The alternative is being a smouldering electrifried corpse. He's just given us two lessons - one is physical humility and another in the worth of possessions and life.
