Appreciating a dragon

Written by Expy - Published on January 17, 2008

Hot Date!Me and my hot date

Yesterday was Appreciate a dragon day and I was lucky enough to spend the evening in good (but evil) company. Yes – that is a young lady red dragon. I had to come up with a “I can handle the heat” pick-up line to get her to talk to me. Don’t tell my girlfriend! We set off a few firecrackers, rented a movie, and chillaxed with a glass of – what else – red wine.

You can celebrate too!

If you haven’t celebrated Appreciate A Dragon day as fully as you would have liked, well, it’s not too late. Dragons are compliment junkies and will be happy to be appreciated anytime – even next week-end.

You could:

  • Play D&D and incorporate a dragon into your current campaign.
  • Invite a friend to try Dungeons & Dragons for the first time.
  • Show your appreciation for Fourth Edition’s new metallic dragons by “friending” the Adamantine dragon on Facebook and giving him gifts.
  • Visit Enworld.com or other D&D fan sites and share stories of how you’ve used dragons in your 3.5 campaign.
  • Google “dragon” and see what shows up! Read about the way dragons have infiltrated popular culture and some of the classic dragon myths.
  • Pop some popcorn and watch movies about dragons, both the friendly and unfriendly varieties:
    • Puff the magic dragon, Dragon Heart, Eragon, Dragonlance, Reign of Fire, the Shrek series, Pete’s Dragon
  • Pull out your old Halloween costume and dress like a dragon.

All right, back to my date…

Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

    I can’t believe it! You told me you were “working”! Isn’t that the dragon from Shrek? I guess she really likes asses.

    It’s OVER!

    Coasters? With wine?

    Hey, that means they went some place “classy”.

  4. I don’t know what kind of red wine you take Yax but you’re not supposed to see through it :)

    I already made my part and had a requiem for my Bronze Dragon….

    (That would beat Expy’s butt in less than a minute I’m sure…)

    So powerful was the bronze dragon and it got kicked out of the core rulebooks. I”m not afraid.

  6. Yax says:

    All right. I admit it:. It’s not really red wine. And I’m really into coasters even with wine.
