I've never seen it used much either, although I did do a few games where I sent the Green or Red Dragon off as soon as I got it and then came back with it. It is quite a good way of reserving some dragonkill for later AND Hungry Jack is quite useful if you can stack him properly (eg - you can suck people out of fortifications) bit reall, I think you need to write a scenario that starts the game with it. Somehting involving Sir Ethilrist I would think.

On the subject of scenarios - I think that there is potential to write a few more DP scenarios. Perhaps someone could come up with a 'Battle of Iceland' scenario.
