 Glimmerscale

If there was one thing that guaranteed to cause normally peacable dragons to quarrel like avaricious children, it is gold and jewels.  As soon as the treasure was discovered the strongest and most powerfull beasts waded in and claimed as much of the sparkling wealth for themselves as they could feasibly defend.  One such dragon was Urlfang, later to be called Glimmerscale by the nomads and cliff top settlers, and the steady stream of adventurers who came to the ruined city to try for a share of the dragonís hoard.

So large and heavy was the dragon and so long did he remain on guard in the bowels of the ruined tower, that a second skin of princely treasure became permanently attached to his underside.  This meant that when he rose out of the dishevelled turret and reared his formidable shape before the tremblling figures that had dared his wrath, his whole trunk sparkled and shone with a priceless coat.  The effect by torch light in the dead of night was spectacular; the soaring torso of treasure glittering before their naked flames like the evening sun on a breeze kissed river.

Before very long the reputation of the dragon they learned to call Glimmerscale began to spread far and wide.

OTHER INFORMATION

Glimmerscale is the name the Dragon came to be known as but it's real name is 'Urlfang'

It comes with a separate wooden plinth so that you can display it with or without it.

Warning: If you do own this piece or intend to buy one be careful, NEVER pick this piece up by the wings, there is a weak point where the wings meet and many pieces split on this joint, I looked at three before getting a perfect one and I know others have had the same problem.

Don't be put of by the above as this piece is a magnificent Dragon and well worth hunting for a perfect one
