Collection: January: The Dragons

In January 2024, subscribers met the Dragons.

The Dragons of Birdmoss settle in the most remote mountaintops, where the rocky terrain is seamed with quartz and gold and glistening shale. They rely primarily on crystals and metals for sustenance; the high mineral content of this diet supports the growth of strong, iridescent scales. Mining sufficient stockpiles occupies most of their time. They dig deep into the earth for food and then use the resulting caverns to store their hoard.

Their unusual metabolism results in a high body temperature. The ardent warmth of the Dragons’ sleeping-chambers, where they pile together at night, would be unbearable for other creatures. The daily toil of mining is offset by sensory pleasures: waking and stretching in the furnace-like heat; bursting into the cool morning outside, scales steaming; cavorting and tumbling in the air; swallowing a lozenge-shaped ruby.

The Dragons Box includes an abundance of beautiful objects; hints and additions to expand the story; a mysterious document; and a lore card.
