Here Be Dragons

They like me, they really really like me. That's right Bleeding Heart Markets here I come. I'm excited, terrified and pretty pleased with myself. This wee little ego boost has promted me to take on a post topic I've long wanted to explore but have always been intimidated by. The king of fantasy, the beast among beasts the lords of all dungeons... I give you the DRAGON!
