Knowledge of dragons has been passed down over the years, their history, their different types, where they might be found…The most important thing is why such knowledge should never be used against them, and above all that dragons, like so much of the flora and fauna of this world of ours, are rare indeed, and would be a shame to see them disappear forever. For the wise learn much, see much, know much, but disturb little.
Dragons can hypnotize large group of individuals at one time, and the effects may last for some months, with the hypnotized person often found apparently carrying on their everyday life. The sign are easy to read: an obsession with dragons, wizards, fairies, or tales of other worlds; a mad delight in fantastic illustrations and ideas; a dislike of human rules or authorities. Luckily, there is a tried and trusted method that may be used as a sure remedy:
1. A person who was been hypnotized by a dragon should be made to do a large number of complicated mathematical sums.
2. All books on dragons, wizards, or suchlike should be confiscated.
3. Exhortations to the person to “stop living in cloud- cuckoo land” are rarely successful.
Like the alchemists of old, whose highest aim was to seek out the philosopher’s stone, able of transforming base metals into gold, dragonologists sought the mystical dragon’s eye for centuries. It is the only sure means to determine those dragonologists who, by reason of their innate wisdom and affinities with dragons, may become true dragonmasters. For some reason most likely associated with the dragon’s ability to see light across various parts of the spectrum, a true dragonmaster is reflected with perfect clarity in this precious gem. It was secreted in a cavern near More Hall in England by Elizabethan dragonologist and natural philosopher Dr. John Dee and is often referred to by him as his crystal ball, or “shew stone.”
Dragon spells & charms:
Take the horn of a dragon to the high point of a hill that has a barrow, or old castle upon it. Turn once about and blow three times on the horn before repeating this verse:
“Dragon kin come and go,
Come and aid me here below.
Serpents one and serpents all,
Come and heed my dragon call.
Flammifax! Arfax! Orfax!
Minifax! Magnifax! Thorfax!”
For one week dragons will protect you.
Only a few become master dragonologists. Such are reflected in the mystical dragon’s eye. Their task is to conserve and protect those few dragons that remain, for who knows how many shall last another century, with the human population growing at such an exponential rate? And with them, how many more Earth’s beings will become extinct until people start to say that they never existed at all, except in our imagination.
