    In the darkness of a cavern, high in the mountains, a sound is heard; the cracking of an egg shell. The crack grows, until finally a small snout manages to break through. The egg rocks briefly, then falls on its side, shattering as you fall out of it, onto the cold, wet cavern floor. Your scales are thin, and you are still covered in the mucus from within your egg.

    What do you do, /tg/?

    As you open your eyes, it takes them a minute to focus. However, once they've adjusted to being used for the first time, you see that you are in a small alcove at the rear of a large cavern. Around the alcove's entrance, you can see a clutch of crushed eggs, each one containing the remains of a black wyrmling.


    You cry out weakly, but your calls echo throughout the cavern with no response.

    You crawl towards the opening of the alcove, your new limbs feeling strange and awkward. As you approach the opening, you can feel a chill breeze blow - it causes you to shiver, your thin frame poorly insulated against the elements.

    You let out a belch, causing a small stream of fire to shoot out at the shattered remains of the eggs. Covered as they are in dried-out plant life, they light, providing you with a source of heat... For the time being.


    Making your way around the flaming eggs, you flap your wings a couple times experimentally, and then try to take off - You manage to glide roughly three yards across the cavern floor before gravity asserts itself. You have yet to master true flight, it seems.

    You sweep the shattered remnants onto your body. One of them fits your head roughly, almost like a helmet. The warmth is comforting, and the light they provide proves useful as you venture out into the cavern at large.

    The floor is speckled with little chunks of metal - the largest the size of a pea. You instinctually recognize the material as silver. Looking around, you can tell that this must be where your mother kept her hoard - but it's gone, and there doesn't seem to be any sign of her, either.

    You test your fire breath on one of the little chunks of metal, but it doesn't seem that you are powerful enough yet to melt the various metals present into bars.


    You find a few spiders, and the corpse of a rat, all of which you devour hungrily.

    You ingest some of the silver that you tried to melt. You can feel its warmth deep in your belly, as you digest your kin's flesh.

    You spy the cavern's sole (visible) exit across the way, and glide over to it - Your flight skills are improving, as it only takes you two landings before you arrive.

    Looking up, you can finally make out the shape of the scorchmark on the ceiling - it looks like a dragon, although what type, you're not sure.

    Looking backwards, you are able to ascertain that you are male. Males have little things, right?

    You see your tail flicking back and forth, and suddenly feel an overpowering urge to chase it. You spin around in a circle for a solid minute, before tripping and falling down, disoriented. The room feels like it's spinning.

    As you reorient yourself, you can smell fresh air coming from the tunnel entrance where you're situated. It's faint, but it's there.

    The only other things you can smell are the metal chunks in the cavern, and a variety of ambient rodent and insect scents.

    You proceed to skitter about the cavern, collecting the metal fragments in your tiny belly.


    You run your tongue along your teeth, tasting the few remaining morsels of meat. Based on the level of decay, your best guess is that the whelplings were killed at least a month ago - the scorch mark on the ceiling seems to be about the same age, but then, you're only guessing.

    Crawling down through the tunnel, you eventually see a flicker of daylight. Coming to the entrance, it takes your eyes a moment to adjust to the bright daylight. Outside, you see a swamp. It seems like a nice day - the sun is shining, and there aren't any predators readily apparent.

    As a familiar we'd gain spell resistance and some feats, and the minimum level for a red wyrmling familiar being 12, we might as well go with true familiar to have someone reliable and powerful instead of a show-off.

    You fly up into a tree near the entrance to your lair, just before a wolf enters the clearing in front of the tunnel's entrance. It sniffs the air, apparently looking for something, then barks three times. Two other wolves appear out of the underbrush, and together, the three enter the tunnel, and are soon lost to sight.

    You leap from the tree, and glide deeper into the swamp. As you do, it gets darker, as the trees overhead block out the sun. It smells like methane, and the muck below gurgles menacingly.

    Ignoring the ooze for now, you continue down the tunnel, until eventually it opens up, into a roughly 10x10x10 chamber. Looking around, you can see that the room was artificially made - although how long ago, you're not sure. The mucus stops at the entrance to the larger chamber, leaving whatever it contains mostly hidden. You can hear movement, and the yipping ceases, replaced by some rather unintimidating growls.

    QUICK. rip out neck. If he screams he could alert the people up top. If we dont make it in time, hopefully they think hes just screaming cause of the dead bodies. If they check LEAVE.

    The goblin grunts as you join him behind the pile, clutching his abdomen. Despite his obviously bad state, it looks like he'll live.

    "My name is Gritch. My clan considers this swamp holy, and every year we come and visit it, to pay homage to our ancestors. This time... Things were different. The cult that did this to me... They captured us, blindfolded us, and marched us to this place... Every day, they killed another one of us, demanding to know where the dragon's bones lay...

    "Don't bother. Watch."

    He closes his eyes, and begins to chant. The hairs on his head rise, as if he were submerged in water.

    The goblin leads the way down the exit tunnel, until finally the pair of you emerge into the gloom of the swamp. He waits until you are out of the tunnel, and then, with a quick muttered phrase, collapses the entrance behind you.

    He then turns to you, a grim look on his face. "I do not enjoy this, but it is what must be done." He pulls a knife out of his rags, but before you can react, slices his left palm open, and extends his hand.
